Will I be required to wear a mask at the 57th National Convention?
Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity is committed to providing a safe and healthy Convention experience. We are working cooperatively with our hotel staff and St. Louis city and county officials to stay abreast of all health & safety policies which may be in force. Registrants will receive health & safety information prior to the event, and we will update it as often as necessary so that everyone is aware of the guidelines before arriving in St. Louis.
Is a hotel room included with my Convention Registration?
Registration fees and hotel costs are separate. Registration does not cover any portion of hotel room costs.
Can I stay at a different hotel?
It is highly recommended that you stay at the convention hotel for the best experience. Staying off site may result in higher costs and a less than enjoyable experience.
When can I check into my hotel room at the Hyatt Regency at the Arch?
4:00 PM Central is the designated hotel room check-in period. Should you arrive prior to check-in, the hotel can assist you with hanging onto your luggage while you explore the city.
Can I park my car at the hotel?
Yes, the hotel has a parking garage and we will have a special discounted rate (to be announced when hotel registration opens).
There are also various overnight parking garages in close proximity to the hotel such as the Mansion House Garage at 200 N. Fourth Street.
I can no longer attend, can I get a refund?
Phi Mu Alpha will not offer refunds for registration. Your Convention Registration and Hotel Registration are both covered under our complimentary Registration Insurance. You will receive a 100% refund of your registration fees if you are unable to attend due to a reason covered under the policy. Click HERE for details.
