We have reserved a number of rooms at a special rate for conference participants between November 18, 2005 and November 22, 2005. The rate we negotiated is USD $189 per room per night. Please note that this rate does not reflect the current New York State hotel tax of 13.63% and the New York City occupancy tax of $2.00 per room.

WISE 2005 participants must make their own reservations. You must reserve your room by October 28, 2005 to be able to get the above rate. Please contact the hotel directly for reservations and request the group room rate for "WISE 2005 Conference".

Early Checkout Policy: In the event you have requested a room within the WISE 2005 reserved rooms and check out prior to your reserved check-out date, the hotel will add an early check-out fee of $100.00 to your individual account. If we wish to avoid an early checkout fee, you should advise the hotel at or before check-in of any change in planned length of stay. The hotel will inform WISE 2005 participants of this potential charge upon check-in.
