Why Staying in the Block is Important

  1. Block hotels have been inspected by NFCYM to ensure they meet our standards.
  2. Better networking opportunities exist in hotels inside the block.
  3. Reservations within the block are better protected from relocation.
  4. Assistance is available onsite for problems with NCCYM block hotels.
  5. Block hotels have friendlier booking terms: no change fees, no full prepayment.
  6. Block hotels offer guaranteed rates.
  7. It’s the right thing to do to support the conference. Meeting space rental and future room rates are based on in-the-block bookings, helping to keep the overall cost of your registration lower. Future cost savings for all depends on strong in-the-block bookings.

Don't Forget the Housekeeper

Guests usually remember to tip the bell person or the concierge because they come face-to-face with these service providers. Many forget about one of the hardest working groups in the hotel industry: the housekeeper. Housekeepers are often women and work for low wages.

While industry groups and others work to raise housekeeper wages, NFCYM offers this gentle reminder to tip the person who cleans your room so you don't have to.

The American Hotel & Lodging Association suggests leaving housekeepers $1 to $5 per day (on the higher end for luxury properties), and urges guests to tip every day, not just at the end of the stay. This is because different housekeepers might take care of the room on different days during the guest's stay.
