Thanks to my good friend Myra Watters ADCRG, we have a link to a short message from Sierra Deaton who, with Alex Kinsey, recently won the third and final season of The X Factor USA.
Tourisme Montréal has prepared a micro site for guests of the 2014 NAIDC to plan their visit.
Here, you can sign up for a coupon booklet for savings on many activities, restaurants, shops, museums, sightseeing tours and show tickets exclusive to our group.
Demand for rooms has settled for the moment.
We reached out to all existing hotels for more rooms and they replied that they are sold out unless noted below.
Rooms booked outside the block rate can not be moved into the block so those nights will not qualify for wristbands. Every hotel ended up giving us more block rate rooms than in our contracts and cannot extend the block any further. Staff at the hotel are telling you to contact us to ask to be an exception but please don’t. The hotels have been asked and double-asked by us and they have replied that they have extended the block all that they are prepared to do.
We are still investigating some new hotels however there are rooms left as follows:
Nearly 200 rooms available for every night of the championships plus the days before and after.
Rooms available every night plus before and after the competition days.
Rooms available every night plus before and after.
Rooms available on Tuesday July 1 only (ideal for teachers attending only the convention).
Rooms available on Tuesday July 1 Wednesday July 2 and Sunday July 6 only. Nothing in between and they cannot add more rooms because they are sold out.
Rooms on the 1st 2nd 5th and 6th. Nothing in between. Sold out.
Rooms available on Tuesday July 1 and Sunday July 6. Nothing in between. Sold out.
Sunday July 6 only. Nothing else. Sold out.
Embassy, SpringHill and InterContinental. Sold out. No chance of adding any more rooms.
To answer wristband queries – they will be issued for check-in and check-out days so if someone books in the block for Wednesday and Thursday nights, they will receive wristbands for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
And finally. We will ensure there are enough rooms for everyone to book in the block to avoid the Facility Access Fee. We will not reach a point where we decide to waive the fee for those booking at the last minute.
The fifty from yesterday sold out so we got 50 more this more at group rate.
We are still asking other existing hotels to add rooms to the preferred rate block. Some simply have no more rooms to give. Some would rather sell them at higher prices.
Le Centre Sheraton Montréal: 1201 Boulevard René-Lévesque Ouest
$165 single/double/triple/quadruple standard rooms
On-line booking link:
Call in number: 514-878-2000
I just checked the web link to verify inventory then I tested this phone number to ensure it works. All OK!
If there is nothing left when you happen to try, then they are sold out.
We secured 50 more double/doubles at the Sheraton today and they Re unfortunately all gone now, sorry.
The Delta still have plenty of double rooms and the Hyatt have a few. Please note the correct number for the Delta which is 514-288-8886.
Also, the Hilton still has King rooms.
We have put in a request to get a full inventory update of what is still available and have been assured this is top priority first thing Monday morning. Contrary to the message board posts on Voy and some of the over 450 e-mails received over the weekend, there are still rooms available. For example, I checked the Delta using the online weblink at 2pm Sunday and they had a double room from July 1-7 available. Additionally, I received e-mails from people who booked at Hyatt and Holiday Inn after word was spread that nothing was left. I just checked the Hyatt online (Sunday just before midnight) and they have doubles from June 28-July 7.
We have requested more rooms added to the block and if everything is in fact is sold out then we will source more hotels.
Any new additions the block will be posted here at the same time as being sent to teachers.
Update: noon EST on Monday. Delta just reported between 78 and 129 double bedded rooms on each of the five main nights of the championships. Still researching the rest.
Thank you to the many wonderful people who are answering queries from other blog users helping to lessen the workload for us.
