Parking available at a reduced parking rate (see below) for the duration of the convention and all of it is within walking distance of the hotel. However, we cannot guarantee availability and strongly encourage carpooling, ride share options or public transportation. See the Parking Map for locations of the 3 Parking lots (Radish Lot, B-Lot, and Lot H with access to the hotel via Union Station through an underground tunnel.
Hotel guests who do self-park will need to let the Front Desk know when they check-in so their guest room key cards will allow for the in/out access at both lots. The parking rate for hotel guests will be $5 per day.
For daily drive-ins, the pay stations will be set at the discounted rate of $5 per in/out. Should guests leave during the day and return, they will need to pay again and we cannot guarantee their spot will be available upon return.
Valet charges are at the hotel’s standard prevailing rates.
Parking Map is HERE.
If your traveling from a little further away, you might also consider Amtrak....
The hotel is connected to Union Station via underground tunnel, easy walking distance. If a door is locked, there should be a bell to ring that will alert someone to open it.
FedEx operates the hotel Business Services Center located on the convention level and receives all shipping to the hotel. More information on their hours of operation can be found HERE.
BGG Events has also negotiated the following discounted pricing for use of in-house FedEx service:
Exhibitors with a booth may contact FedEx for quotes on inbound/outbound material handling.
The Hyatt Regency Dallas provides complimentary WIFI available in the guest rooms and "public areas" (lobby, cafe, etc.). This does not include the meeting spaces, such as ballrooms, breakout rooms, exhibit hall, and library. WiFi will be available in those rooms for a daily fee.
We have negotiated an access code for all attendees to include WiFi in the meeting areas but bandwidth is limited - please only use it for checking email, social media, etc. - no streaming... (this is the plan, but not confirmed yet)
Hotel Room Transfers
Please post to the forum link BGG.CON 2022 Official Hyatt Regency Dallas Room Reservation Transfer List to make arrangements to possibly transfer your room to another attendee. Follow the instructions in the forum post. DO NOT CANCEL YOUR RESERVATION. When you have worked out a transfer arrangement with someone, please contact the hotel with the name of the person for the room transfer.
Hotel Sold Out
Generally, attendees book their rooms early, and then about one or two months before the convention opens, we have a little bit of attrition due to work conflicts, etc. When that happens, we ask those with rooms to "TRANSFER" their rooms to another attendee. See the forum link BGG.CON 2022 Official Hyatt Regency Dallas Room Reservation Transfer List .
Please post to the forum BGG.CON 2022 Looking for a Roommate Thread and make arrangements. You will also want to make sure your roommates name is listed on the room information with the hotel so they can check-in to the room (in case you are not there yet).
BGG.CON has a room commitment contract with the Hyatt Regency that makes it possible for us to use the meeting space. So we strongly encourage you to stay at the Hyatt Regency, if there are rooms and/or roommates available.
