Please take a moment to make your reservations today, or as soon as you receive your acceptance notification(s) if needed.  This year, ECA has the opportunity to review reservations in February and reduce (or increase) the size of our room block if necessary with no financial penalty.  So, although the link above will be open until March 8, we are asking you to please make every effort to book no later than February 15.


First, if you do not need a room with two beds (and you will see this message repeated because it’s so important) – PLEASE keep your reservation at the Hyatt Regency.  ECA could face financial penalties if we lose room reservations at the Hyatt.

  1. If you reserved a King but NEED a Double-Double and registered on the official “waiting list” we sent previously, you may pursue one of the options below and cancel your King at the Hyatt.

  2. If you NEED a room with two double beds, we have a new room block at the Lord Baltimore Hotel, not far from the Hyatt.  The Lord Baltimore is providing a complimentary shuttle dedicated to ECA attendees.  Rooms are $189+ tax.  To reserve, please click here::  https://bookings.travelclick.com/85390?groupID=3795329#/guestsandrooms

    The Lord Baltimore rate includes complimentary wifi, access to the fitness center, microwave and fridge in all rooms, and use of the shuttle to the Hyatt.  Cut-off date for reservations at Lord Baltimore is February 26.

    Lord Baltimore Hotel, 20 W Baltimore St. Baltimore, MD 21201

  3. Regarding rooms at the Hyatt, there are plenty of King rooms available.  Please do not use one of the overflow rooms listed above if you don’t need two beds, as we have a limited number of those and still have a rooming commitment to the Hyatt. Cut-off date for reservations at the Hyatt is March 8.

Feb. 6 Update:

Good news from the Hyatt Regency. If you were hoping to stay at the convention hotel, but need two beds, The Hyatt has let us know that comfortable twin-size (single) rollaways will be available. Book a king or queen room and request the rollaway at check-in. In addition, after making your reservation, you may also email me at jwaldeck@uga.edu as I will be keeping a list and updating the hotel as to need.  Please note that the hotel limits rollaways to one per room.

Do not delay in making your reservations. Our hotel room block is filling quickly. ECA 2023 promises to be a huge convention with 100 registrations in less than 3 days after registration opened.

The Hyatt Regency Baltimore Inner Harbor has had some exciting upgrades and updates since our last visit in 2016!  On-site parking, updated grab-and-go restaurant and market, full ADA accessibility, tech savvy enhancements, and a state-of-the-art fitness center await ECA members at the Hyatt.  Please support your association by planning to reserve a room in our room block at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore Inner Harbor for your stay, where you will discover a unique blend of urban luxury and local amenities in a setting with beautiful views of the harbor.  The hotel is an easy walk or quick ride to museums, upscale and on trend Fells Point shopping, Little Italy, historical landmarks, great restaurants, the National Aquarium, Fort McHenry, Camden Yards (home of the Baltimore Orioles), and more exciting attractions.
