MARS lodging


MARS convenes at the HYATT PLACE, in Dewey Beach, DE. This seaside resort hotel is your 'home away from home' for the week. Classes and all school functions are held in and around the hotel. Fabulous food is included in the tuition. Dine in style in the sundrenched, open-air dining room, or take it outside to enjoy the fantastic views overlooking the bay. Join in the fun with parties on the beach, or just enjoy laid back conversation relaxing in an adirondack chair while under an umbrella on the expansive deck. Take laps in the heated, indoor saltwater pool or work out in the fitness room. It's all included.
Why not bring your spouse or significant other to enjoy the locale while you take classes? It's very inexpensive.
They could relax on the deck and bask in the sun, sit on the beach, literally steps from the hotel, and watch the sunset, take a walk on the Boardwalk in Rehoboth (only minutes from the hotel). Or, they can take in the extraordinary shopping experience at the 'mile of style' Tangier Designer Fashion Outlets. Hundreds of name-brands and only minutes away! Then, catch up together during meals.
Check out the registration form to see the current rate. Or if you know you are going to attend, you can fill out the online registration form and pay in full




Be advised MARS has no control over rooms outside of our week-long block, and the school will not be responsible, nor coordinate, any stay before Sunday, or past Thursday night (Friday morning).

HOWEVER
If you're interested in making an 'extended vacation' by arriving a couple days earlier and/or staying a couple days later, or maybe just coming in the day before so you are prepared for first thing on Sunday, MARS has worked with our hotel to offer you a special deal.

You can now book your own "shoulder dates" directly by clicking BOOK MY EXTENDED STAY to access "our area" on their website (your discount will be factored in at checkout).

If this link gets corrupted, you can
  1. go directly to HYATT PLACE DEWEY BEACH website
  2. Click the yellow BOOK NOW button
  3. then in the pulldown menu choose "corporate or group code" use code G-MA22

If you have trouble with any online serve, you can always call hotel reservations directly at 1-855-556-1297 and ask for The Mid Atlantic Regional School or G-MA22 rate.


BOOKING NOTES -
  • choose ONLY the extra date you want to stay (make sure you do not include S-Th of the schoolweek)
  • If you are registered with the school as a double occupancy, choose "one room, 2 guests". This may provide the possibility of staying in that same room all week. While the school cannot guarantee, the hotel will do their best to make this happen.
  • If you are registered with the school as a single room, choose "one room, 1 guest". This may provide the possibility of staying in that same room all week. While the school cannot guarantee, the hotel will do their best to make this happen.

Book EARLY for best chance at getting a room.
Be advised, rooms for shoulder dates, before or after our event, are based on availability at the time of booking, are at the sole discretion of the hotel, and may not be available.
If you are lucky enough to score a room, it is at the hotel's discretion of placement, and, as mentioned, may not be the same room you are assigned during the MARS week.
