Note for Wyndham Rewards Members: If you register online, do NOT log in as Rewards Members. Instead, make your reservation as simply a member of the ACM/SIGAda Group (see code in instructions below). You can then add your Rewards Number later in the registration process when you are prompted to do so.

You may register at the hotel in one of the following ways.

First, contact the hotel directly.

You may contact Lauren Cahill to make reservations during regular business hours Monday-Friday at +1.412.682.6259 (direct) or +1.800.864.8287 (free within USA). She can also be reached via email at (LCahill at Wyndham.Com). When speaking with her, you can reference any part of the group name as she can search for the group under either "ACM", "HILT", or the group code.

Reservation calls received after regular business hours are diverted to their call center. You should then reference the complete name of the group (ACM HILT) and NOT the group code. The call center reservationists are booking for thousands of hotels and do not recognize individual group codes.

As you type it in (slowly), you'll see a drop-down list of matches. Before you enter the entire string, you can select "Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center, PA, US". There is a small blue link for "Special Rates and Codes" (as shown near the bottom of this picture). Click on it.

Travel to/from the Hotel

The hotel does not offer an airport shuttle.

However, the hotel has information for directions to and from Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) (http://www.pitairport.com) as well as information about transportation to and from the airport via Super Shuttle, Taxi Services, and Bus Service.

Check out public transportation at http://www.pitairport.com/public_transportation. The 28X city bus (nicknamed Airport Flyer, this is the public bus) is the way that some people usually go when not parking at the airport. See 28X.PDF (notice that exact fare of $3.75 is required as the driver carries no change). It will drop you off on Fifth Avenue about a block from the hotel.

More expensive options are shown at http://www.pitairport.com/limousines_taxis_buses. The Super Shuttle is about half-way down this page and is the one usually recommended if you don't want to ride the public bus or pay taxi fare of about $60 (including tip) one way. The Super Shuttle web page is http://www.supershuttle.com/Locations/PITAirportShuttlePittsburgh.aspx. The cost of the Super Shuttle is about $25 one way (about 30 minutes travel time, but it might be an hour or longer due to the football game). Round trip is about $50.

If you plan to arrive in Pittsburgh on Saturday, 9 November, be aware that this is the date of the (American) college football game between the University of Pittsburgh and Notre Dame. Driving into Pittsburgh or taking the bus will be slow before, during, and after the game (a normal 25-minute drive from the airport to downtown might take 1-1/2 hours). Plan accordingly!
