2017 AYF Olympics: Affordable

2017 Armenian Youth Federation Senior Olympic Games, Hosted by the AYF-YOARF Racine “Armen Garo” Chapter, to Take Place in Downtown Milwaukee

$120/night. That’s not a typo.

Hyatt Regency Milwaukee in Downtown Milwaukee

$120/night (plus tax) is all you will pay for a single, double, triple, or quad room at the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee in Downtown Milwaukee.

$120/night to sleep in a plush Hyatt Grand Bed II™, workout in a StayFit™ Gym, savor market-fresh cuisine at Bistro 333 or wind down in Bar 333.

$120/night to stay in a vibrant urban downtown, within walking distance of 100’s of restaurants, attractions and entertainment venues and, don’t forget, the greatest of the Great Lakes, Lake Michigan.

$120/night is only $1/night more than the rate was at the same Hyatt Regency Milwaukee at the 2006 AYF Olympic Games.

$120/night is also $39/night less than the rate at the Hyatt Regency New Brunswick at last year’s AYF Olympic Games. That’s affordable.

What else is affordable? $80 for a weekend Hye Pass.

$80 to listen and dance to…

…Chicago’s own Hye Vibes featuring John Harotian on clarinet, Mark Gavoor on oud and vocals, John Paklaian on dumbeg and vocals, Kraig Kuchukian on keyboard, and Stepan Fronjian on kanoun and vocals.
