    Please do not send housing forms to the ASA office or contact hotels directly.

    DEPOSIT: All reservation requests must be accompanied by a credit card guarantee. Housing forms received without valid and complete credit card information will not be processed.

    ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: Acknowledgements will be emailed after your reservation has been made. You will not receive a confirmation from your hotel. Reservations are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis and according to room availability. Please allow 48 business hours after Experient receives your reservation request.

    ONLY ONE ROOM may be requested on each form. You may photocopy the form if you need additional rooms.

    CHANGES: Changes and cancellations may be made until June 29 by telephone at (847) 996-5879 (Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CDT) or email at jsm@experient-inc.com. Always indicate you are attending JSM and have your acknowledgement number ready. On July 15, reservation data will be transferred to the hotels, and Experient Housing Bureau will no longer be able to make reservation changes. As of July 18 (and not before), event hotels will be able to assist with reservation changes and cancellations directly.

    CANCELLATIONS: Failure to cancel your reservation more than 72 hours in advance of your scheduled arrival or failure to arrive on your scheduled date will result in the hotel charging the credit card on file for one night's room and tax. Some hotels charge a penalty for checking out earlier than scheduled. To avoid this, please verify your departure date during check-in.

    CANCELLATIONS (HYATT MP ONLY): The hotel will charge the credit card used to guarantee the reservation(s) non-refundable one night's room and tax as deposit(s) upon receipt of the rooming list on July 5, 2016. Cancellation of your reservation on or after July 5, 2016, or failure to check in on your scheduled date of arrival will result in the forfeiture of the one night's room and tax deposit. Some hotels charge a penalty for checking out earlier than scheduled. Please verify your departure date with the hotel front desk upon check-in to avoid this penalty.

    GOVERNMENT PER DIEM RATE ROOMS: Government-rate hotel rooms are applicable only to employees of U.S. federal government agencies and require an eligible federal government ID at check-in. University employees are not eligible for government-rate rooms.

    Importance of Staying in the Official Meetings Hotels

    Your patronage of the official convention headquarter and overflow hotels enables the ASA to secure the meeting space at a greatly reduced cost, which helps keep your registration fees down. With your cooperation, the ASA will continue to be successful in negotiating good contracts for the Joint Statistical Meetings and maintaining the programs and activities you have requested.

    Important Message About Hotel Reservations

    The official housing bureau for JSM does not solicit reservations by phone or email. If you are contacted by any housing bureau, we urge you to report them to ASA staff at meetings@amstat.org. If you receive a call or email from any company offering to make hotel reservations for you over our meeting dates, we urge you not to book with them. These companies are not affiliated with JSM or the ASA in any way and therefore are not authorized to make reservations on our behalf. While the rates may sound good, unauthorized companies typically require nonrefundable, pre-paid reservations and often end up moving individuals to other hotels. If you book with an unauthorized company, the ASA cannot protect you if there is a problem with your reservation when you arrive in Chicago.
