Please call 1-855-584-3466 and mention NCSC Attendee Room Block or book online here. Rooms will be available at the group rate until October 1, 2019 OR until the block fills up. (This is a popular hotel and is known to fill up, with non-group rooms often sold at significantly higher rates, so don’t wait to book!)
Come early or stay late to see Nashville and relax with fellow conference attendees! Rate is available 3 days before and after the conference, so if you’re unable to book all of your dates online, please call the hotel directly to ensure you get our group rate. Please note that the double rooms have double beds (vs. queen beds), so please keep that in mind when planning to share with others. Rollaway beds are $10 per room daily. The cancellation policy is 72 hours prior to arrival. Cancellations within 72 hours of arrival will forfeit 1 night room & tax.
Better networking opportunities exist if you stay at the hotel with other attendees.
Reservations within the block are better protected from relocation.
Block rooms help support the conference. Meeting space rental and future room rates are based on in-the-block bookings, helping to keep the overall cost of your registration lower. Future cost savings for all depends on strong in-the-block bookings.
Don’t Forget the Housekeeper!
Guests usually remember to tip the bell person or the concierge because they come face-to-face with these service providers. Many forget about one of the hardest working groups in the hotel industry: the housekeeper. Housekeepers are often women and work for low wages. The American Hotel & Lodging Association suggests leaving housekeepers $1 to $5 per day (on the higher end for luxury properties), and urges guests to tip every day, not just at the end of the stay. This is because different housekeepers might take care of the room on different days during the guest’s stay.
