    Best Rates, Greatest Flexibility

    You always get the best rates when you book with the Academy! We have negotiated with hotels in Chicago to bring you the lowest pricing available. The Academy's official hotel reservation provider, Expovision, will also ensure that you earn all of your hotel loyalty points.

    When you book your hotel room you can use your credit card to guarantee your reservation, but you will no longer be charged a room deposit. The hotel will charge your card approximately 2-3 weeks prior to arrival.

    Cancelling Hotel Rooms

    Hotel cancellation policies vary, but rooms must be canceled between 24 and 72 hours prior to arrival. Refer to your confirmation for your hotel’s cancellation policy to avoid a one night’s room and tax penalty.
