We are pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement with the Hyatt Regency Chicago, site of 3 previous Worldcons. The hotel features over 2,000 sleeping rooms, a convention hall and meeting rooms large enough for our needs and quick access to some of the most beautiful parts of our city. Since the Worldcon was last at the Hyatt in 2000, the hotel has gone through an 80 million dollar renovation, which has upgraded the sleeping rooms and convention space. In addition to being renovated, the event space has been expanded since 2000 so there is more room for us at this facility than there has ever been!
We will be hosting the Worldcon over the traditional Labor Day weekend, August 30th to September 3rd, 2012. Our convention rate for sleeping rooms is a flat $145/night for single/double/triple/quad and the rate is available pre- and post- convention for those wishing to extend their stay to take in more of Chicago.
