Housing is now open. The housing deadline is Monday, March 24.

After March 24, room availability and special rates cannot be guaranteed.

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 Information Grid.

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 each hotel.

completed Housing Reservation Forms with credit card details can be submitted via online, faxed or mailed to the AANS Registration Office. The AANS online Housing Reservation Form is the most immediate and secure method of making your hotel reservation.
