The University establishes preferred relationships with hotels located in the Chicagoland area and around the world to offer discounted sleeping room rates, complimentary amenities and meeting space options. Reservations can be booked via GEMS or Tower Travel Management. If calling the hotel directly to book your reservations, please request "The University of Chicago rate" to receive the discounted rate and to ensure your stay is credited as a University booking.
Preferred Hotel Master Group Agreement
The University has developed a Preferred Hotel Master Group Agreement with our preferred hotels located in the Chicagoland area. This master agreement has established the terms and conditions of the meeting/event contract for clauses such as cancellation, attrition and indemnification. Using a preferred hotel streamlines the negotiation process since the only items to negotiate are the sleeping room rates for the specific dates and rental space for the program.
