The Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers
has been designated as the Headquarters
Hotel for the 2008 AANS Annual Meeting.
Additional official hotels of the 2008 AANS
Annual Meeting are available in the Hotel
The AANS Housing Bureau will process
hotel reservations based on choice and
availability. All reservation requests must be
made through the AANS Housing Bureau.
Rooms will be assigned on a first-come,
first-served, space-available basis.
Support the AANS by booking your room
through the Housing Bureau at one of the
official annual meeting hotels. By doing
this, you are helping your association in
many ways. In order for the AANS to
obtain the necessary amount of meeting
and exhibit space at the convention center
and the hotels, the AANS must commit to
a minimum number of guest rooms. If that
commitment is not fulfilled, the association
will incur significant financial penalties and
have difficulty obtaining sufficient meeting
space in the future. Unfortunately, this can
have a major impact on the member
services and programs that the association
is able to offer in the future.
The official hotels have been selected
because they are in good locations, provide
a variety of rates and have consistently
shown a high level of product and service.
All AANS hotels, with the exception of the
Hyatt Regency McCormick Place, will have
continuous shuttle service to and from
Lakeside Center, McCormick Place. Shuttle
service to and from Lakeside Center, McCormick Place will not be provided
from any other area hotel. Please review
pages 74-75 for further details on
