The Conference Hotel is:
Hyatt Regency Louisville
320 West Jefferson Street
Louisville, Kentucky 40202
Please read: CMS has provided the conference hotel with a guarantee that a minimum number of rooms will be sold. Although it may be possible to obtain lodging elsewhere at a lower rate, please understand that CMS will be forced to pay penalties which will jeopardize future conferences if the organization fails to meet its room block. Thank you for your help by booking a room at the conference hotel.
For single occupancy, the discounted conference room rate is $165/night plus applicable state and local taxes. An extra charge of $20 per person, per night will apply for double, triple, or quadruple occupancy.
Sales Tax Reciprocity
If an individual’s guest room and tax will be paid for by an institution or organization that is exempt from sales tax in their home state, then the Commonwealth of Kentucky will exempt the individual from the 6% sales tax portion of guest room taxes provided the following three details are satisfied:
- The guest, upon check in, provides the hotel with paperwork that shows the State sales tax exemption from the State in which the institution or organization is incorporated (this should be available through the institution’s financial operations office);
- The guest, upon check in, provides the hotel with a completed copy of Form 51A127 (Out-Of-State Tax Exemption Certificate); and
- Payment to the hotel is made directly by the entity that is exempt from the sales tax (e.g., payment made with P-Cards). Personal credit cards or checks cannot be used for this exemption, even if the institution or organization will reimburse the individual after their stay.
The deadline to reserve rooms at the conference rate is Thursday, September 12, 2019. Rooms within CMS’ reserved block will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. CMS cannot guarantee rooms at the conference rate once the room block has been sold; thus, participants are encouraged to reserve well in advance of the final cutoff.
How to Reserve
A credit card is required at the time of reservation to hold a room but will not be charged at the time of reservation. You may make your reservation online by clicking here.
Be Aware of Scams
Booking a guest room using the above link is the only reservation method guaranteed by the hotel to result in an actual booking. Please be aware that phone and email scams exist which target conference attendees, and that neither the hotel nor CMS have authorized any third-party agents to represent them in booking rooms for guests.
