Annual Meeting Host Hotel
Attention ACHA Annual Meeting Attendees!
Due to an enthusiastic response to our upcoming ACHA 2012 Annual Meeting in Chicago, registration numbers and pace are much higher than we’ve experienced in previous years (114% compared to last year’s registrations), resulting in a correspondingly high demand for hotel rooms. Both the host hotel (Sheraton) and our contracted overflow hotel (InterContinental) are sold out for the night of Thursday, May 31.
We’re pleased to announce that we have contracted additional rooms for the ACHA 2012 Annual Meeting. Registered meeting attendees and exhibitors who are still in need of hotel rooms should contact:
Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile (online reservations)
1-877-303-0104 (Reference American College Health Association)
Rate: $199.00 single/double per night, plus applicable taxes
Please be reminded that our meeting starts and ends one day earlier this year than in past years. The Leadership Program and Pre-Conference Workshops will take place on Monday, May 28. The meeting will conclude on Friday, June 1 at noon.
If you plan to depart on May 31, you may still book rooms at either hotel:
- Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers: 800-233-4100
- InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile: 800-628-2112
If you are holding a room at either hotel that you no longer need (especially for Thursday, May 31), please cancel it immediately so that your fellow colleagues are able to reserve a room for the meeting.
We will be posting updated information as it becomes available. Thank you for your patience.
Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers
The 2012 Annual Meeting will be held at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers, located in the heart of the city and overlooking the Chicago River. In addition to being within walking distance of dining, entertainment, and nightlife, the hotel has a number of restaurants and lounges; the Chi Bar, LINK@Sheraton Café, and Chicago Burger Company offer casual dining, while fine dining options include Shula's Steakhouse and LB's Bistro & Pâtisserie, a restaurant created by World Champion Pastry Chef Laurent Branlard. Other hotel amenities include access to a fully equipped health club, saunas, and indoor pool (for hotel guests only).
All educational activities, special events, and the Exhibit Hall will be held at the host hotel.
A discounted room rate is available for ACHA meeting attendees only. You should register for the meeting before making hotel reservations. Your meeting registration confirmation will contain the link to the hotel reservation site, which should be used to ensure that you receive the discounted rate. To ensure lodging in the host hotel, register as soon as possible for the meeting.
Note the shift in the conference days (from Tuesday-Saturday to Monday-Friday). Great News! With this shift, ACHA successfully negotiated a lodging discount for attendees of more than $30 per night.

*IMPORTANT: ACHA has no official rooms broker and there is only one way to book rooms at the guaranteed group room rate, which is through the link that you will receive after registering for the meeting. ACHA cannot guarantee reservations made through any other means. Individuals transacting with any third party companies do so at their own risk, independent of any guarantee by ACHA. If you are contacted by any company claiming to represent ACHA or its annual meeting regarding lodging or travel, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org — with as much detail as you can obtain (name of company that contacted you, individual's name, a phone number, or email address, etc.).
