I noticed that the announcement about the Hyatt block opening says, "A web reservation link will be made available after the block opening date." However, I have yet to see any kind of web reservation link posted. Did I miss it or has it not been posted yet?

Sorry if this is in the wrong place, feel free to move it!

I believe the link may still be a work in progress at this moment, since it is not up yet. That being said, you can also place your reservation individually through the Hotel’s Reservation Department by calling their phone numbers listed on our website. Just make sure you let them know you are intending on attending the Anime Central Convention being held in April 17-29, 2012. Posted Image

Nice to see Acen going to a 13 day con. :P Mistype ftw! :P

I'm actually curious about rates too. When I reserved, they quoted me $169 a night and not the $175 as listed on the ACEN website.

Everyone is being charged 169 dollars a night from the room block at the Hyatt. I have no idea why it says 175 dollars on the website >.< there seems to be some sort of discrepancy. With taxes it comes out to 190+ dollars more or less.

For the suites, I think those are sold out now :( you have to double check.

I don't know why there would be that discrepancy in the quoted vs advertised price, but it looks like the hotel is letting you save six dollars a night. Posted Image

I just pretty much avoid the Hyatt fridges altogether and bring a styrofoam cooler.

I know it's not a web link, but this was posted on our site a couple of weeks ago. Maybe it'll help.

Do you not have a phone? It's not that hard to call them. Hell I think it's easier to book on the phone.

See, but someone is booking it for us, and he dosn't want to call, and I would hate to make him do something he dosn't want to do, also since he's being so kind as to book the rooms for us, I figured that was the least I could do is let him do it online.

Tell your friend go to: www.chicagoregency.hyatt.com/ and look for Rosemount IL, and remember to put Anime midwest in promotions if they have it. The final room rate should be around 190 with taxes if they do it right. I don't have a direct link sorry.

I'm not 100% sure how to do it online, because computers can mess up and at least with a human you can record for your records so I almost always call for hotel reservations.

Hope this helps.

*Coughs awkwardly* Np.

This year the did have a direct link to the promotional section for the Hyatt and other hotels, but since I'm stuck on a game system I can't find it. (It random freezes on the net from flash and java lol.)

If you still have problems getting the promotion discount mention it here so I can search for it. I'm hoping to get a new laptop by this weekend.

Hey, I actually have a question about hotels, not specifically the Hyatt... My crew kind of wanted to avoid the Hyatt this year if possible because of all the elevator hassle, among other reasons... So we were considering the Embassy or Doubletree, since we still want to be in-the-thick-of-it...

However, when I called the Embassy, they said they can't book that far out yet, nor do they know the rates, and won't until it's 6-months-til...

So I'm in a catch-22 here. I'd book at the Hyatt NOW if the Embassy is going to be much more expensive... But I don't want to wait for the Embassy, then have no rooms left at the Hyatt by the time I find out.

Does anyone know if the Embassy or Doubletree have price matched for Hyatt ACen con rates in the past??


Edit: Meh, I read that all the panel programming is in the Hyatt this year... so if the programming isn't going to be spaced out all over the place, then I suppose I'll just suck it up and book a room at the Hyatt. It'd be nice to know this info for future reference though...
