When booking your hotel, you may find other choices besides the conference hotel where you might be interested in staying. Some of these options may offer lower room rates, however, before you book, consider the benefits of booking at the official conference hotel.

Added Networking and Social Time
One of the key reasons people attend the conference is to meet and connect with other participants.  By staying at the conference hotel, you enhance your opportunities to meet individuals who share your interest in LIS.

Shortest Commute to ALISE 21
Lets be honest, staying at the conference hotel allows you to squeeze in a few more minutes of sleep by offering the shortest commute.  Breeze into ALISE 21 with zero stress from driving and parking in downtown Milwaukee during the conference.

Help ALISE Help You
If ALISE does not meet the contracted sleeping room commitment, unfilled rooms can cost the association thousands of dollars. ALISE may no be able to negotiate beneficial hotel contracts in the future, and registration and hotel room rates may increase as a result.

Best Available Rates and Cancellation Options
ALISE has invested time and effort to negotiate the best available rates for attendees. In addition, the hotel has provided a simple, quick, and efficient method to book your room online at the conference rate, while working closely with ALISE to ensure attendees receive the type of service
associated with the room.

Room Rates
The per night rates do not include applicable state and local taxes, currently 15%.  Add $20 for triple occupancy and $40 for quadruple occupancy, respectively.

Standard Double Room      $169 per night
Standard King Room   $169 per night


Self parking is available at the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee for ALISE 21 attendees:

  • Self parking $15 for 4-18 hours
