If no availability is showing for the dates you need, this means one or more of the nights you are requesting is fully booked within the block. There are several options in this situation: if possible, try adjusting your dates. If your dates are not flexible check availability outside of the block directly with the hotel. If you can secure a room outside of the block, please provide your reservation confirmation number to Genesis Argueta so that she may ask the hotel if your reservation can be moved into the block. Please note that in some circumstances the hotel might move your room into the block but will not honor the group rate. If your dates are not flexible and you are not able to secure a room directly with the hotel, please complete the room waitlist form found here. Should a room become available for the dates you are requesting we will contact you.
If you need to change the dates on your stay you can do so via the link in your hotel reservation confirmation email or you may contact the hotel directly via phone. If the hotel portal is not allowing you to make this change online, the date you are attempting to change to might be fully booked within the block. There are two options in this situation: check if the date you are attempting to secure is available outside of the block directly with the hotel. If the additional date is available directly with the hotel; book the additional night but keep the existing reservation you have in the block. Although the night you booked directly with the hotel won’t be at the group rate, this will guarantee the additional night with the hotel meanwhile the original in-block reservation will be at the group rate, meaning you are only paying the hotel rate for the night needed.
Please contact the hotel directly to verify your confirmation. When speaking to the hotel, don’t forget to verify that your reservation is within the HDA group room block and you are receiving the group rate, your dates are accurate, your Marriott Bonvoy Reward number is tied to your reservation, and any other accessibility requests you may have.
