Getting here is half the fun?
Hi everyone! When we put up the room block we said it would go fast and we weren’t kidding. The Hyatt was kind enough to let us continue to book past the room block until the hotel was sold out. They reached that point last Thursday. Next year we will be increasing our room block and making sure everyone knows when it is going live!
Our suggested solution is to book with the Millennium. The Millennium is connected to the Hyatt via skyway and we are in discussions with them right now about creating a block for our overflow. Their current rate is 135/night (according to google looks like 152 on their website) and if we work out a lower deal you can send us your reservation number and we will move it to the block which would lower your rate to the 2D Con blocks rate.
