First, I apologize for the lateness of this short but important blog. Yesterday, I went straight from work to United Centre, and this is the first chance I've had to get in front of a computer.
If you're a season-ticket holder planning to stay at the Hilton for the convention this summer, you DO NOT have to wait until 9:00 this morning to reserve your room. Here's the story:
As we all know, the Hawks website is about as reliable as Rod Blagojevich. So I called the Hilton yesterday morning, with the simple intention of confirming the information on the Hawks site. And hey, guess what, the Hawks conveniently forgot to communicate to their season-ticket holders that they have had reservation priority this WHOLE TIME!!! When I told the extremely helpful Hilton representative that I was a season-ticket holder, she asked me for my season account number, then asked me how many nights I was staying, and before I knew it, my room was booked!
So if you're a season-ticket holder and you're planning on staying down the Hilton, again, the Hawks DID NOT COMMUNICATE that you have pre-reservation privileges, but you DO!!!
