Recommended Hotel

The Hyatt Place Madison worked as an awesome hotel last year and we will be recommending them again this year (walking distance to the Shamrock, people!).  They have provided a social discount rate that provides a percentage off the current rate. Please use code 63038 in the Corporate or Group Rate box when booking. You can also use this direct link.
If you are planning to stay at the Hyatt, we recommend booking soon as this is not a block of rooms being held.
