Hotel Reservation Deadlines and Information

You must be registered for the Midwinter Meeting to make a housing reservation. Hotel reservation requests will be accepted until January 16, 2014, subject to availability. Rates are quoted for the room, not per person, and all rooms are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Special rates are available only when you book directly with onPeak. All rooms are subject to applicable tax. All requests must include six choices. Please be sure to give accurate dates of arrival and departure for everyone occupying the requested room. PLEASE NOTE: onPeak does not assume the responsibility of pairing guests for double occupancy or in multiple housing units. After January 16, 2014, onPeak will continue to make reservations on a space-available basis only (i.e., register early to get the hotel of your choice).

Hotel Confirmations, Cancellations, or Changes

Confirmation of the room reservation will be acknowledged by the travel desk and sent within 72 hours. If you have any questions regarding your reservation, or to make changes or cancellations, contact onPeak at 800-584-9047, not the hotel. One night’s room and tax guarantee to a credit card is required to hold hotel reservations. All changes and/or cancellations prior to January 16, 2014, must be made through onPeak. After January 18, 2014, changes and cancels must be made direct to the hotel at least 72 hours prior to arrival date for most hotels.


Accept no substitutes!

Please be aware that there are companies out there that claim to provide housing and registration services for the ALA conferences that are not affiliated with ALA in any way. The chances are quite good that sometime soon you will receive a fax, e-mail or phone call, if you haven't already, that offers you cut-rate housing. The author's apparent intent is to convince you that the offer is made on behalf of ALA. It is not. Many exhibitors have become the unwitting victims of these room block poachers who secure exhibitor lists from Internet Web sites and membership databases from the membership directories that associations produce.

DON'T BE MISLED! Housing for ALA's Annual Conference and Midwinter Meeting is handled exclusively by onPeak.

Everyone loves a bargain. Poaching housing blocks, however, is not about better prices - it is about highly suspect ethics and service.

When ALA secures sleeping rooms at hotels for our conferences we do so in order to assure that our attendees and exhibitors are adequately accommodated. We also need the hotels for meeting space for the numerous sessions. This involves contracting the rooms and space with many hotels, but doing so exposes us to cancellation and attrition policies. We hope you will support ALA's efforts to thwart the efforts of room block poachers when making your housing arrangements.

Thank you for your support.
