      How do I make a hotel reservation?
      Hotel rooms are available only to registered individuals. Chicago offers a magnificent variety of accommodations and rates. Register and secure a hotel room at RSNA.org/register. RSNA encourages you to book early for the best selection as hotel rooms may become limited closer to the meeting. Visit the Registration and Housing brochure to view hotel information, rates and locations.    

      A $300 deposit is required to confirm your hotel reservation. Reservations may be secured with a major credit card at the time of booking.  The credit card must be valid through December 2014 and will be charged by the hotel approximately two weeks prior to the meeting. Registrants can also send a check, money order or wire transfer (payable to RSNA) for the hotel deposit. (Attendees are responsible for all wire transfer fees.) 

      What is the hotel change policy? 
      Housing deadline: November 7, 2014
      If you plan to arrive after 6:00pm, contact the hotel for a late check-in.

      Reservation Changes prior to November 7:
      Contact rsna@experient-inc.com for hotel changes. Name changes and/or swapping of room reservations is not allowed.

      November 10-18:

      Written requests for room cancellations and full deposit refunds must reach rsna@experient-inc.com by November 7.

      After November 18:
      Contact the hotel directly for date changes and room cancellations. Room availability and rates are at the hotel’s discretion.

      Reservations may be cancelled without charge up to 72 hours prior to guest’s scheduled arrival date.
      Failure to comply will result in forfeiture of the deposit equal to one night’s room and tax.

      Early departures will result in the loss of one night’s room and tax.

      Failure to check in at the hotel on your scheduled arrival day will result in forfeiture of your reservation and hotel deposit. The hotel will accommodate you on a space-available basis.

      When canceling your room reservation directly with the hotel document the date and time of your call, name of the person with whom you spoke, and obtain a cancellation number.
