Hotel Reservations

Hotel reservations at the PIUG group rate are available by contacting the hotel by phone at +1 312-787-2200 or Toll Free Reservations: +1 800-553-7253 with CODE: PIU for attendees or via the PIUG Conference Reservation web page. Identify yourself as attending the PIUG 2024 Annual Conference.

The rates for a Standard Guestroom are $209 for single or double occupancy. Rates do not include applicable state and local taxes, currently 17.40 % per room, per night.

Message to Attendees: PIUG has made every effort to secure the best possible group nightly room rate for you at this event. That rate results from a negotiated overall package of event needs such as sleeping rooms, meeting room space and other requirements. Contracts with the venue include a provision to reduce event costs if PIUG meets or exceeds its minimum sleeping room block guarantee. Conversely, event costs will increase if PIUG falls short of its minimum room block guarantee. Please help PIUG keep the costs of this event as low as possible by booking your housing needs at the designated host hotel and through the reservation process created by PIUG. Reserving elsewhere means you are booking outside the contracted room block, jeopardizing PIUG's ability to meet its contracted obligations and to keep registration fees to a minimum. PIUG appreciates your support and understanding of this important issue. Thank you.

Check-in time is 3:00 pm. Check-out time is noon.

The Drake Hotel notified PIUG on the 4th of April that they have extended the negotiated room rates to April 12th, 2024.  Please don't let this savings get away and book your room quckly. Please remember to make your hotel reservation prior to 11:59 PM EDT on April 12, 2024 in order to guarantee the room prices negotiated by PIUG for this conference. After that, it is at the hotel's discretion to accept additional reservations, which will be subject to prevailing rates and availability. Depending on availability, the hotel will honor the PIUG room rate from May 4 - May 10, 2024.  Please contact, if you need assistance with booking a room.
