SUBJ:  	The Hyatt Regency St. Louis is now Sold-Out !!!

		Overflow rooms are now available nearby at Great Rates !!!

Important information for all potential 802 attendees: 

a) The Hyatt Regency Union Station in St. Louis, Missouri is the primary
site for the March 2002 IEEE 802 Plenary Meeting (except the 802.17 RPR WG
will be meeting all week at the Sheraton City Center - 4 blocks away).  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.  You may also wish to
call the hotel during the week prior to the start of the Plenary Meeting to
check the status of your reservation request.  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.  Check-in time is 3pm, check-out is 12
noon and both provide free parking for hotel guests.  Rooms at both
properties are limited, so make your reservations ASAP !!!
