These rooms are guaranteed until March 10, 2011 (although the Hyatt may honor the rate after that date if rooms are still available).  [Update: the rate is good until March 18, 2011 while rooms last.]  Please be sure to use the reservation link above, or to mention our group ID (SAIAS, Society for AI and Statistics) and meeting name (AISTATS 2011) when making a reservation by phone: this will ensure that you get the conference rate, and will also help us ensure that we meet our contracted group size.

In addition, due to limited availability at the Hyatt, the Bahia Mar has agreed to honor the conference rate of $139/night.  They are approximately 1 mile from the Hyatt, reportedly an easy walk.  To reserve, please email:
