AMATYC's room block at the Denver Sheraton is very close to being sold out. It appears that Saturday night will run out of rooms very soon. To accommodate AMATYC members, we have negotiated a contract with the Hyatt Place/Hyatt House less than 2 blocks from the Sheraton as an overflow hotel. This new hotel, with excellent rates and a few extra perks, provides a great alternative.
