What are the cancellation and credit card policies?

A credit card number is required for guarantee at the time of booking. The credit card provided will not be charged by NSBA Registration & Housing.

Your confirmed hotel has the right to charge the card for an advance deposit of one night's rate and tax per room after March 11, 2022. If you do not want the current card charged you have the option to replace it with a different card by March 10, 2022, or by providing a check deposit. The deadline for NSBA Registration & Housing to receive hotel deposits is March 4, 2022. Checks received after that date will be returned.

Friday, March 18, 2022 is the deadline to cancel reservations without penalty. Cancellations after that date will forfeit one night’s room & tax either by the hotel withholding the sum from an advance deposit check, or the hotel charging the credit card provided in the reservation.

The credit card number provided in the reservations cannot be charged by the hotels for anything other than advance deposits of just one night’s room & tax, or late cancellation and no- show penalties. If the attendees’ room & tax for all nights is being paid for, then full payment by check or a written credit card authorization needs to be provided in advance of their arrival.

Even with advance room & tax payment, all attendees will need to provide a credit card or debit card upon arrival to pay for any unpaid nights and all incidental charges unless other payment arrangements are made with the hotel.

Incidental Expenses:

Hotels will place an authorization hold on the attendee’s own credit or debit card totaling $50.00 to $100.00 per room, per night in anticipation of incidental expenses. Actual incidental expenses incurred during the stay will be billed to the card at check-out, and the remaining authorization hold will be released. It may take between one to eight days after check-out for the hold to disappear from the card statement.

How can I pay a hotel deposit by check?

Hotel room checks must be paid separately from conference registration.

Hotel deposit checks are made payable to Convention Management Resources

Hotel deposit checks are mailed to:
Convention Management Resources
c/o NSBA Housing
639 Isbell Road, Suite 330

Friday, March 4, 2022 is the last day for NSBA Housing to receive advance hotel deposits. Checks received after this date will be returned.

Prepayment can be for all nights’ room & tax, or just one night’s room & tax per room with the balance paid to the hotel upon checkout.

How can I request a suite?

Before contacting NSBA Registration & Housing to request a suite, we recommend that you make a standard room reservation first. This reservation can be later modified or cancelled, if needed.

To request a suite, send us a message. Complete the required fields, and provide responses to the following:

  1. If you have a room reservation that you’d like upgraded to a suite, please provide the name that the reservation is booked under and/or the confirmation number.
  2. Is the suite for sleeping, meetings, hospitality functions, or any combination of these?
  3. Does the bedroom need to be separate from the sitting area?
  4. How many adults and children will occupy the suite, and how many beds are needed?
  5. Let us know which hotel(s) you will consider in order of preference.
  6. What is the desired price range of the suite?
  7. Anything else we should know?

A member of the NSBA Registration & Housing team will contact you to follow up.
