If you try to make Hotel Reservations and are told that our block is full and need assistance getting into the hotel, or if you have any problems with the hotel's reservations website, please send an email to Gena Matthews at gmatthews@mhca.com?Subject=Hotel Assistance - 2018 Austin.


If you need to cancel a room reservation, please send an email to Gena at gmatthews@mhca.com?Subject=Room Cancellation - 2018 Austin rather than cancelling the room yourself with the hotel. The hotel will return all Cancelled rooms to their General Sales block, not to mhca's room block, thus these rooms will be unavailable to other mhca members trying to make reservations.  By letting Gena know about the cancellation, she can work with the hotel to make sure your cancelled room(s) are in our block and available to other members.

Cancellations must be made 3 days prior to arrival to avoid cancellation penalty of one (1) night's room & tax.
