stds-802-16: IEEE 802 Rooms at Hyatt Regency St. Louis

See information below from Dawn, our excellent meeting planner. Point 
(d) is a little scary, but I am still optimistic that we will stay 
put this time because we don't require much space.

For additional info, including the 802.16 schedule for the week, see:


IEEE 802: Meeting Information Update Memo - 1st Announcement
DATE:     Wednesday, February 6, 2002
ATTN:     All IEEE 802 Attendees
SUBJ:    IEEE 802 LMSC Plenary Meeting - March 10-15, 2002 - St. Louis, MO

Important information for all potential 802 attendees:

a) The Hyatt Regency Union Station in St. Louis, Missouri, will be 
the site for the March 2002 IEEE 802 Plenary Meeting. The IEEE 802 
group room block is now NEARLY SOLD-OUT. The cut-off date for the 
block is Monday, February 11, 2002. To make your hotel reservation, 
you may either web-reserve at: (enter 
group number: G-IEEE), or contact the hotel directly by calling: 
(314) 231-1234. When the hotel becomes SOLD-OUT, please call and 
request to be put onto the IEEE 802 WAIT-LIST. This group typically 
has many late cancellations, and the hotel will contact you when a 
room becomes available. You may also wish to call the hotel during 
the 1 to 2 weeks prior to the start of the Plenary Meeting to check 
the status of your reservation request. The special IEEE 802 group 
rate is $139/night for single/double/twin occupancy plus applicable 
taxes. Room reservations may be canceled without penalty up until 6pm 
of your day of arrival.

b) The Hyatt Regency St. Louis is located 20 minutes from Lambert St. 
Louis International Airport (STL). Taxi ride one-way is approximately 
$30. See the current meeting info package at for more info and detail on 
transportation options. Hotel self-parking for in-house guests or 
other visitors is currently $9. per night or $2. for the first half 
hour and $1. each additional half hour (max. $9.). Valet parking is 
offered for $6. for up to 6 hours and $15. for between 6 and 24 hours.

c) The IEEE 802 Opening Plenary will begin Monday, March 11th at 
11:00am and the 802 Working Group Meetings will begin at 1:00pm. 
Please note: Some of the 802 Working Groups have scheduled meetings 
for Friday morning, March 15th. Please visit the home web site for 
your Working Group for the detailed agenda. The closing Executive 
Committee meeting is currently scheduled to be held from 1pm to 6pm 
on Friday, March 15th.

d) Please Note:
Due to the growth of the IEEE 802 group and shortage of meeting 
space/guest rooms, we are looking into providing another hotel for 
guest rooms and meeting space. Once another hotel is arranged, you 
will be notified via the e-mail reflectors. Unfortunately, due to a 
lack of near-by facilities, this hotel may NOT be located within easy 
walking distance of the Hyatt.

e) Please note that our secure web Pre-Registration Form will be 
posted next week at:

Please contact us at or (408) 241-8906 if you 
require further information and/or assistance. We look forward to 
seeing you in St. Louis.

Thank you,
