The Hyatt has been SOLD-OUT but many of the 802.17 attendees will be switching over to the Sheraton, so we expect several openings at the Hyatt shortly. If you don't have your room reservation confirmed yet, please contact the Hyatt directly at (314) 231-1234 and request to be put on the IEEE 802 Wait-List. This group typically has many late cancellations, and the hotel will contact you as soon as a room becomes available.

The IEEE 802 group rate at the Hyatt is $139/night for single/double/twin occupancy plus taxes. Hyatt room reservations may be canceled without penalty up until 6pm of your arrival date. b) Due to the Hyatt being sold-out, we have blocked some additional guest rooms at the Drury Inn and the Hampton Inn nearby. They are located within 1-2 blocks of the Hyatt. We have arranged the following discounted IEEE 802 group room rates: Drury Inn - $114.00 single/double occupancy plus tax; Hampton Inn - $110.00 single/double occupancy plus tax. You must guarantee your reservation with a credit card or a deposit. You may cancel without penalty up until 6pm of arrival date.
