The Hyatt Regency Los Angeles at Macy’s Plaza is a contemporary business and convention hotel located in the heart of the downtown financial district, within walking distance of the Los Angeles Convention Center and Staples Center. It is adjacent to Macy's Plaza and located within minutes of museums, theater, sports and entertainment attractions.

Your support in staying at the Hyatt Regency Los Angeles at Macy’s Plaza helps keep the conference costs down, which directly affects your registration fees. SIAM guarantees the hotel we will fill a certain number of “room nights” (rooms per night) during the conference. SIAM incurs penalties if too many attendees opt to stay in other hotels in the area or neglect to indicate to the hotel that they are with the SIAM conference. At this time, conference costs do not include meeting room rental. If SIAM fails to fill the contracted room block, SIAM is then charged the cost for the meeting rooms on a daily basis, along with a hefty penalty. Future registration fees could increase to cover these additional risks.

SIAM is holding a block of rooms at the Hyatt Regency Los Angeles at Macy’s Plaza. These rooms are being held on a first-come, first-served basis at the following discounted rates. The group rate is only guaranteed until the cutoff date unless the block fills prior to that. If there are rooms available after the cutoff date, they will be at the best available rate that is offered at that time.
