Participants should also be aware that it is general hotel practice
in most cities to hold a nonguaranteed reservation until 6:00 p.m.
only. When one guarantees a reservation by paying a deposit or submitting
a credit card number as a guarantee in advance, however, the hotel
usually will honor this reservation up until checkout time the following
day. If the individual holding the reservation has not checked in
by that time, the room is then released for sale, and the hotel
retains the deposit or applies one nights room charge to the credit
card number submitted.
If you hold a guaranteed reservation at a hotel but are informed
upon arrival that there is no room for you, there are certain things
you can request the hotel do. First, they should provide for a room
at another hotel in town for that evening at no charge. (You already
paid for the first night when you made your deposit.) They should
pay for taxi fares to the other hotel that evening and back to the
meetings the following morning. They should also pay for one telephone
toll call so that you can let people know you are not at the hotel
you expected. They should make every effort to find a room for you
in their hotel the following day and, if successful, pay your taxi
fares to and from the second hotel so that you can pick up your
baggage and bring it to the first hotel. Not all hotels in all cities
follow this practice, so your request for these services may bring
mixed results or none at all.
Importance of Staying in the Official Meetings Hotels:
Your patronage of the official headquarters hotels enables the JMM
to secure the meeting space at a greatly reduced cost which helps
to keep the cost of the meeting and your registration fees down.
Also, networking events will be held at the Marriott Hotel &
Marina for the convenience of our participants..
