Re: 2017 NAQT ICT: Chicago, April 8

Hi,
Is the Hyatt Regency fully booked already? I looked on their website, put in the dates, and it told me that nothing was available. Yet, NAQT's website still advertises the block rate.

So, are there any rooms left at the main hotel? If so, are they available at the lower rate?
