Hotel Situation

Due to the sudden and unplanned closing of over 400 guest rooms at the St. Louis Millennium Hotel, a great number of conference attendees with confirmed reservations for the National Collegiate Conference will be relocated to either the Hyatt at the Arch or the Hilton at the Ballpark hotels. The official statement from the hotel is as follows:

"The Millennium Hotel St. Louis will be undergoing an immediate comprehensive room renovation of the hotel. This will cause a substantial reduction in the hotel's guest room inventory during the AITP conference over the dates of April 3-6, 2013. Many of the attendees with room reservations during this conference will need to be relocated. The hotel has secured alternate accommodations at the Hyatt Regency at the Arch or the Hilton at the Ballpark to accommodate the relocated rooms. You will be contacted by the hotel directly should your existing reservations be affected by this situation. We appreciate your understanding and apologize for any inconveniences.”

The room rates will be the same as quoted for the Millennium Hotel contracted rate of $135.00/night plus taxes. Any additional charges assessed by the alternative hotel will be billed directly back to the Millennium Hotel.

The conference hotel was originally due for this major guest room renovation last fall but sadly, that never happened and the hotel owners opted to start the project immediately and notified us 4 weeks out from the conference. Additional information about this decision can be found by viewing this article in the St. Louis Business Journal <article link>.

The AITP NCC staff regrets any difficulties this may cause some conference attendees and additional steps are being taken to provide walking escorts to and from the hotels in the evenings.

See the NCC Hotel page for more information.

Yikes! On a good note, we stay at the Hyatt Regency (formerly Adam's Mark) every year and it's better than the Millenium in every way except it does not have a pool (it was located on the roof and they turned it into a dance floor 6 years ago). I think it was to attract more business people and deter families, it probably worked. Hilton is a little farther and I hope nobody ends up there because it's less than convenient to the conference. I have to admit, conferences were one of my favorite fun things about college and were overlooked by most students. Attend as many of these as you can, Have some crazy fun!>)
