PSA2014 Hotel Information
The PSA 2014 will be held at the Westin Michigan Avenue Hotel. (Currently Full)
Please note: As of this time, the Westin Michigan Avenue is full. It is possible that rooms will become available due to cancellations – you can check the reservation site for any such availability.
909 N. Michigan Avenue
Chicago, IL 60611
Tel: (866) 716-8104
Two Options Available at the Westin:
- Standard Rooms: These are $175/night for single- and double-occupancy plus tax (roughly $204/night total).
Deluxe Rooms: Due to our rapidly filling room block at the Westin on Michigan (our conference hotel) we have been able to work out an agreement with the good folks at the Westin to create some club level rooms. Westin Hotels typically do not have a club level but the Westin on Michigan has agreed to use some of our meeting space to create a place where those who are willing to pay extra can escape the noise of the meeting (rates are $224/244 single/double). These rooms are deluxe view rooms and will include access to the lounge, which will feature a continental breakfast from 6am-9am on Friday, Nov 7, Saturday, Nov 8 & Sunday, Nov 9. The lounge will be open from 6am to 6pm on each of these dates. If you already have a reservation, you should cancel your existing reservation (there is no penalty up to 24 hours prior to arrival) either by calling Central Reservations at (888) 627-8385 or online at https://www.starwoodhotels.com/westin/reservations/index.html. Once your existing reservation has been cancelled, you may book a new reservation for a club level room through Central Reservations or at https://www.starwoodmeeting.com/Book/hss14.

New Overflow Hotel: The Whitehall Hotel
105 E. Delaware Place
The rate for the rooms is $249/night plus taxes, with a 3 night minimum. Book immediately, as few rooms remain.
Graduate Rooms are now full, and there is a long wait list. HSS is still collecting names for the wait list, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone added at this point will get a room at the graduate student rate.
