Reservation Problems:   Please contact Bill Pfister ( if you have any problems reserving a room.
Some people are experiencing issues when trying to make a reservation including the night of 2/27 (i.e., checkout 2/28), where it appears the only rooms available are Executive Suites at $695 per night.  Setting your checkout to 2/27 should show Standard rooms at the $259 per night rate.  If that happens, make your reservation for the Standard room with a 2/27 checkout and send me an email with your confirmation number and desired checkout date.
Attending both Energy Insurance Mutual (EIM) and EEI Meetings
If you are staying at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress for both the Energy Insurance Mutual (EIM) RM meeting and the EEI RM meeting, it is preferred that you make two separate, consecutive room reservations.  The first reservation for the nights corresponding to the EIM RM meeting and the second reservation for the nights for the EEI RM meeting.   We apologize for any additional effort or confusion this may cause and will assist in any way possible.  The hotel staff is also aware of the situation and will make every effort to minimize the inconvenience to our guests.  However, if you utilize a single reservation for your entire stay, please note that EIM will only reimburse for the nights associated with the EIM meeting.
Note regarding EIM transportation from hotel to airport: EIM provides shuttles for departing guests from Hyatt Grand Cypress to the airport on Tuesday, February 26.  If you are staying beyond that time, whether it is for EEI or other purposes, your transportation fees from the hotel to the airport will not be reimbursed by EIM.
Meeting Registration Cancellation Policy
Cancellations received on or before Wednesday, February 13, 2019 will be refunded in full.  Cancellations received after that date and on or before Thursday, February 22, 2019 will be subject to a refund equal to one-half of the registration fee to cover the cost of unfilled function guarantees.  Cancellations received after Thursday, February 22, 2019 will result in a forfeiture of the registration fee.  Substitutions are welcome.  Telephone cancellations will not be accepted, they must be confirmed in writing via email or mail.
