ANA negotiates lower hotel rates for New York Convention
The American Numismatic Association (ANA) has negotiated even lower room rates – as much as 13 percent – for the two New York City hotels the Association selected for its World’s Fair of MoneySM, July 31 to August 4.
“We have been successful in reducing hotel room costs even more at both the Marriott Marquis Hotel, site of the show, and the nearby Milford Plaza Hotel,” says ANA convention Services Manager Brenda Bishop. “There is a lot of competition among New York hotels to attract guests, which helped the ANA obtain better room rates for those coming to the show. These reductions will apply to existing and new reservations.
“Because 96 percent of our room blocks in both hotels have been sold, I encourage those planning to attend the ANA’s show in New York to make their reservation soon,” Bishop adds.
Room rates at the Marriott Marquis Hotel have been reduced from $220 (single occupancy) and $240 (double) to $209 (single/double). The single/double occupancy room rate for the Milford Plaza Hotel has been reduced from $125 a night to $115.
Call the hotels directly and make reservations by July 6, 2002, to receive the ANA discounted prices. The Marriott Marquis Hotel can be reached at 212/398-1900. The Milford Plaza Hotel can be reached at 212/869-3600.
Bishop says her department is investigating additional hotels for those unable to acquire reservations at either the Marriott Marquis or Milford Plaza. Attendees should contact the ANA Convention Department for assistance in making alternate arrangements.
The ANA also has arranged for airfare discounts of 5 to 15 percent on Delta Air Lines (call Delta Meeting Network Reservations at 1-800-241-6760 and refer to File No. 182323A) and 5-to 10-percent discounts on United Airlines (call United Meeting Specialists at 1-800-521-4041 and refer to ID# 500BX).
