Official Convention Hotels Sold Out; NFDA Offers Alternate Option
Rooms at the three official convention hotels – The Fairmont Chicago, the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers and the Hyatt Regency Chicago – have sold out.
In order to offer attendees another option for accommodations, NFDA has secured a limited number of rooms at the Intercontinental Hotel Chicago on Michigan Ave. The rate is $259 plus tax per night. The hotel is approximately two blocks from the Sheraton, where you can access the complimentary NFDA shuttle to the Convention Center (the shuttle will not make a stop at the Intercontinental Hotel).
More information about how to make your reservations at the Intercontinental Hotel can be found on the Convention website. Rooms are available on a first come, first served basis until September 23 or the rooms block sells out, whichever comes first.
