Venue

Why is a hotel room mandatory for all the attendees?

All registrants must stay at the hotel because the hotel has offered us conference rooms, ballrooms, etc. at no extra cost in return for the contractual obligation to stay at the hotel. One cannot truly immerse in and enjoy the IMRC experience without staying at the venue. With its world-class facilities, the hotel provides you with a worry-free place to relax, socialize, bond, and have fun without the hassle of commuting daily.

Are the discounted rates of the hotel available only during the Convention?

For your convenience and enjoyment, discounted room rates are available for up to three days before and up to three days after the convention dates. The IMRC team has negotiated 750 room nights at an exclusive steep discount, and regular hotel rates may apply once we reach this limit.

Why is Marriot Marquis showing non-availability of rooms on the IMRC dates when I tried booking on their website?

Please use the web link from the Registration page or the one you received through your confirmation email. Do not book directly from the hotel site or any other travel website. IMRC has specially reserved rooms for the event available only through our link.

Why is it not letting me book more than one room?

Due to limitations of the Marriott reservation system, only one room is allowed per booking. If you need multiple rooms, please make multiple bookings.

What is the group code on the Marriott site for room booking?

Please use the link from the Registration page or the one you received in your confirmation email. That link directs you to the exclusive discounted rate for the event.

How do we request two queen beds during the hotel reservation?

The hotel has blocked all the Queen rooms for the Convention. Depending on the number of people per room (up to 4) officially registered, the hotel will assign rooms. Example: If you register four attendees, you will get a room with two queen beds. Room numbers will be allocated at the hotel at the time of check-in.
