Hotel Reservations and Cut-Off Date
The NASAD group rate is only available online via the website linked above. Please do not use the main Wyndham Hotels website to make room reservations.
Should additional assistance be required, please call (412) 391-4600. Ask for the “National Association of Schools of Art and Design” block to receive the group rate, and request a written confirmation of your reservation. It is important that you have written confirmation of your reservation from the hotel before leaving for Pittsburgh.
The Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown is holding preferred reservations for NASAD through Sunday, September 22. After that date, room assignments will be made on a space-available basis only, and the NASAD group rate may not be offered. Prospective attendees whose plans are uncertain at this time are encouraged to make reservations now, and cancel later if necessary. (Please review hotel policies regarding the time frame for cancellation without penalty.) Once the hotel is sold out or the NASAD room block is filled, other accommodations will need to be secured. Unfortunately, NASAD is not able to assist participants in finding alternate lodging.
