Hotel Information

Louisville Marriott Downtown

Louisville, KY 40202

As some of you encountered, our room block at the conference hotel filled more quickly than expected and, because of other events in Louisville that week, hotel space was very limited. Fortunately, we have secured an additional room block at the Hyatt Regency (320 West Jefferson, Louisville, KY 40202) with rooms at the original Marriott conference rate.

To reserve rooms in the Hyatt, please use the link below or call toll free 1-888-421-1442. Limited rooms are available so please reserve by October 3.

To book online:

If you reserved a room at the Marriott with a higher rate and wish to switch your reservation, check for availability at the Hyatt and secure a new room before cancelling your Marriott reservation.
