The information provided on this and subsequent pages is in reference to the August, 2000 UNIMUN Conference. 


UNIMUN is pleased to announce that the host hotel for our 2000 Conference is the historic Roosevelt Hotel, located just a few blocks west of  the United Nations.  We have negotiated a very low group rate for a Manhattan hotel: hotel rooms will cost $140 per room per night (plus tax*), with up to four people in each room at no extra charge. We hope that these rates will make the Roosevelt a very affordable choice for UNIMUN participants. 

Reservations at the Roosevelt are now being accepted, and we suggest that participants make their hotel reservations as soon as possible. Rooms should be reserved directly by you or your group, and can be made by calling (888) TEDDY-NY. International callers, please call 212-661-9600. The reservations fax number is 212-885-6168

Please ask for the Reservations Department, and to insure favorable rates tell them that you are with the "UNIMUN" group. Standard rates for the Roosevelt are over $250 per night, so identifying yourself with our group is an important part of the reservations process. 


At this time, if you are interested in sharing a room with other individuals, or if you have additional space in your existing room reservation, we ask that you visit a special e-group set up for UNIMUN participants to exchange room information. 

This group can be found at: http://www.egroups.com/group/unimun_roomshare


When making reservations, please be sure to provide the hotel with the names of all people who will be staying in each room. If a double, triple or quad room is held with just one name, your hotel check-in time at conference may be significantly increased. After making reservations by phone, we strongly recommend faxing or mailing a confirmation of your room assignments to the hotel. 

When making reservations by phone, you will need to provide some form of guarantee on your rooms. Rooms can be held with a credit card, or a one night deposit per room can be sent in advance by check. The total room cost will be due at registration, and may be paid by credit card, check, or cash. It is not necessary to use the same credit card to hold and pay for rooms: many schools use a credit card to hold the reservation, and then pay by check upon arrival. The hotel also may request a faxed confirmation of your reservations, and you should request a faxed or mailed confirmation from the Roosevelt. 

The Roosevelt MUST receive your reservations by JUNE 30 to guarantee a room reservation and our preferable rates; after this date, the hotel may make our room block available to the public, and rooms will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Also, please note that our room rates are available from August 2 through August 18. If your students would like extra time to tour New York and see the many sites, we recommend that you may want to arrive a day early or stay a day after the Conference ends. 

If you have any questions, or encounter any problems in making reservations, please contact the UNIMUN Executive Office at the numbers listed at the top left of this page. 

* Note: the current tax rate in New York city is 13.25% city and state taxes, plus a $2.00 occupancy tax per room, per night.
