Conveniently located on Nicollet Mall, the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis is in the heart of the downtown business, cultural, and shopping districts. AAAR attendees will enjoy the convenience of being able to walk to a wide variety of restaurants near the hotel. Within the hotel, there is a variety of dining options: Taxxi offering a bistro style atmosphere; Spike's Dugout, a sports bar with informal dining; a coffee and espresso outlet; and the Oceanaire Seafood Room serving seafood dishes in a sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere.

Nearby are Minneapolis landmarks such as the Walker Arts Center and Sculpture Garden and the new Guthrie Theater. A short bus ride will take you to the Stone Arch Bridge on the Mississippi River. From the bridge you'll have amazing views of the mills which made Minneapolis a hub of industry.

The Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport (MSP) is a short twelve-mile distance from the hotel. And, for the shoppers in attendance, the Mall of America is a twenty minute drive from the hotel.

Reduced sleeping room rates have been negotiated for AAAR attendees. The single daily sleeping room rate is $179 plus applicable taxes; the double sleeping room rate is $179 plus applicable taxes. The cut-off date for sleeping room reservations is October 1, 2009.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE BLOCK OF ROOMS RESERVED FOR AAAR ATTENDEES IS EXPECTED TO FILL VERY QUICKLY. Once the AAAR block is filled, sleeping rooms will be offered on a space availability basis and will be charged at the prevailing Hyatt Regency Minneapolis rate.

If making your reservation by telephone, identify yourself as attending the AAAR conference. The group attendee code is 10AR. The group reservation telephone number at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis is (612) 370-1234 or (800) 233-1234. Reservations can also be made online.

The Hyatt Regency Minneapolis accepts all major credit cards including American Express, Diners Cub, Discover, MasterCard and Visa.

AAAR continues to make every effort to keep registration costs at a minimum for annual conference attendees. One way this is done is to negotiate a hotel room rate with the headquarters hotel (Hyatt Regency Minneapolis) with the expectation that the majority of attendees will stay at this hotel. However, if the hotel room commitment is not met, AAAR will be penalized. To make sure there are no negative financial implications to AAAR and its members, we strongly encourage conference attendees to stay at the headquarters hotel.
