Additional hotel information not captured in the initial post:
-The cancellation policy is anytime up to 72 hours before the reservation date, so you can make reservations now even if you are not sure if you will attend yet.
-A limited number of rollaway cots are available. Costs are $5/night for kids, $10/night for adults.
-There is one hotel restaurant in addition to the many restaurants within a very short distance.
Keep an eye out for the November-December magazine to come out soon with information regarding other convention details.
FYI...I made my reservations via the direct link on the NDC homepage. Very smooth process. I price-shopped the rate on hotels.com and trivago and they were nearly $30 higher per night, so the $109 per night rate is a good value.
See all you cheese heads in Brookfield later this year!
I did forget to mention it in the article in the magazine, but there is a complimentary shuttle at the hotel for any location within a 5 mile radius. This unfortunately does not extend out to Mitchell International Airport at this time. The hotel is looking into possibly adding limited airport shuttle availability on Wednesday and Sunday. Stay tuned.
We called the 800 number. They said they could not handle it, to call local number. Had trouble getting thru on local number. Busy or voicemail etc.
We ended up just doing it on line with the reservation for NDC link. All worked ok online. We are booked.
@dandolan thanks for the feedback and I am glad you were able to get your reservation completed. My best guess is that they are short-handed with personnel to answer the phones due to the virus, but I will communicate that issue back to my contact at the hotel when I talk to them later this week.
