FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
ITEEA's 76th Annual Conference
March 27- 29, 2014
What hotels have been reserved? What are the rates?
The official ITEEA host hotel is the Caribe Royale.
Why is the hotel cut-off date so important?
After February 15, 2014, you cannot be guaranteed a room in the ITEEA housing block. You take both the risk of not getting a room, or paying a much higher price than the special rates negotiated on your behalf by ITEEA. The ITEEA rates are substantially lower than other rates you would find in close proximity to the convention center, and to secure your room at these rates, you must confirm it by the hotel cut-off date of February 15, 2014.
Will I be refunded if I have to cancel my hotel reservation?
Yes, so long as you cancel within 48 hours of your date of arrival. Otherwise, you will be charged one night’s room and tax.
