Room reservations must be received by September 12, 2019. Reservations received after this date, or after the group block sells out prior to this date, will be on a space and rate available basis.  A deposit equal to one night's room and tax is required to hold each individual’s reservation.

Sheraton Grand Chicago Cancellation Policy
There is a 72 hour cancellation policy in place for all reservations. Failure to cancel a reservation 72 hours prior to arrival will result in a one night non-refundable guest room charge plus applicable taxes posted to the attendee's credit card on file. 

Loews Chicago Cancellation Policy
There is a 72 hour cancellation policy in place for all reservations. Failure to cancel a reservation 72 hours prior to arrival will result in a one night non-refundable guest room charge plus applicable taxes posted to the attendee's credit card on file.

Please note that ACEC is not working with a housing company. Should you be contacted by another company stating that they are a housing company for ACEC or asking to make your reservation — be aware that these have not been authorized to contact ACEC attendees and are not affiliated or endorsed by ACEC.  If contacted by an unauthorized broker, please notify Jessica Torrero at jtorrero@acec.org. Booking through an unauthorized service provider could result in unconfirmed bookings. If this occurs, the hotel may have no obligation to provide you with the accommodations you were expecting. Do not fall victim to this practice — book your hotel room directly through ACEC's reservation link above.

Staying at Sheraton Grand Chicago or Loews Chicago will allow ACEC to keep your registration fees at the current rates. If ACEC does not achieve a minimum number of overnight accommodations, the price of services will increase registration fees for future programs. Without your support, ACEC faces huge financial penalties for unused sleeping rooms.  Registration for the conference is required BEFORE making your hotel reservation.
