This year, you can use NCIL’s custom link to reserve your room at the Grand Hyatt.

New – 45 Day Hyatt Guestroom Cancellation Policy

Grand Hyatt room reservations cancelled after close of business (5:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time) 45 days prior to arrival will be subject to a non-refundable cancellation charge equal to one night’s room & tax. 

Cancelled reservations cost money. In order to hold the Conference each year, NCIL is contractually obligated to sell a certain amount of hotel rooms. For the last several years, late cancellations have caused NCIL to be billed for unused rooms. Last year, we narrowly avoided tens-of-thousands of dollars in charges because the hotel sold those rooms to other guests – outside of our group. That was a lucky coincidence.

We have to take action to avoid these charges. Please remember that all Conference attendees are required to register for the Conference before reserving rooms at the Grand Hyatt. Please be absolutely sure you can travel to Washington, DC before booking your room.

Additional accessible hotel rooms are also available at the Marriott Metro Center, just 1 block from the Grand Hyatt.

Additional details are available on our Conference webpage. See you in July!
