Travel & Housing

10th National Eucharistic Congress
July 17-21, 2024
Indianapolis, In

Are You Ready?

Not only are passes going quickly for the Congress itself, but spots are also filling on flights, buses, and in the closest hotels to the venue.

With this in mind, we recommend reserving your housing and transportation as soon as possible. More than 25 hotels have been contracted to host Congress attendees at special rates—many within walking distance of the stadium. Follow the steps below to complete your registration and reservations.

Purchase Your Passes

The first step in reserving your spot is to purchase your Congress passes. Once you’ve registered, we will email you instructions for claiming your special housing discount at participating hotels. If you have not yet booked your passes, click below to get started.

Determine how many rooms you’ll need
  • Due to the limited number of hotel rooms in downtown Indianapolis, please consider the following as you make your plans:
  • Book your housing as soon as you are able to.
  • When estimating your housing needs, err on the side of caution. Due to high demand, it will be challenging to add more rooms to your reservation.
  • We encourage double, triple, and even quad occupancy for your family or group to maximize space.
  • For fewer than 15 hotel rooms, you’ll receive a self-reservation link to secure your room and upload guest information.
  • For more than 15 rooms, you’ll be able to request a bulk group hotel block.
Book Housing

Travel & Housing FAQs

Here are some frequently asked questions about travel and housing for the 10th National Eucharistic Congress. Click here for a full list of FAQs.

Where will I be staying?
  • Most attendees will purchase a standard Congress Pass with the option to book a hotel room within our discounted housing block. This puts the decision power in your hands to select your preferred hotel based on location, price point, amenities, etc., and also allows you to choose your own roommates. After completing registration, you will receive a housing portal link in your registration confirmation email where you can reserve a hotel room at the special event rate.

  • We will be offering alternative housing for parish youth groups as well as seminarians. These alternative housing options will include university dorms and/or church sleep spaces, allowing for more cost-efficient housing for these groups.

  • If you request an alternative housing space, a confirmation email with your alternative housing placement will be sent in mid-May 2024. If you do not see one at that time, please contact the National Eucharistic Congress Housing Team.

  • Attendees with basic Day Passes or Evening Passes will need to arrange their own housing.

How can I reserve a hotel room with the NEC event rates?

In order to access our special event rates for hotels, you will first need to register for your Congress Pass. The link to our housing portal will be included in your registration confirmation email.

What form of payment will I need to bring to the hotel?

A credit card is required to reserve and pay for your room(s). Credit cards must be valid through August 2024 or later.  No checks, money orders, or wire transfers will be accepted. Should your travel plans change, please notify NEC’s Housing Bureau as soon as possible at

Are there any hotel cancellation fees?
  • Individuals can cancel their rooms without penalty through June 1, 2024.

  • Cancellations received after June 1, 2024, will be charged one night’s fee plus tax.

  • Groups will need to cancel before June 1, 2024, to avoid any cancellation fees.

  • After June 1, 2024, any group canceling more than 10% of their room block will be financially responsible for the costs associated with their block and will be billed by the NEC directly.

Can I book my own hotel room now, before I register?
  • You are welcome to do so. However, the NEC has contracted more than 25 hotels in the city at excellent rates. The only way to take advantage of these rates is after securing your Congress Pass. The Congress Pass confirmation email will provide a link to book your hotel through our housing portal at special event rates.

  • Bulk registrants and parish youth groups will be contacted by HPN Global to secure housing at our special event rates after booking your Congress Passes.

  • Space is limited, so be sure to register for the National Eucharistic Congress soon to book your housing!

Can I request my roommates?

For those purchasing Congress Passes and utilizing our housing portal, you are welcome to select your roommates.

I booked a Congress Pass. When will I be able to book housing for myself and/or my group?

Access the National Eucharistic Congress housing portal for discounted rates by clicking on the link in your registration confirmation email. You will be able to select the hotel that best matches your needs based on price, amenities, and distance from the convention center.

I would like to arrive early or stay late. Can I reserve an extra night?
  • Attendees will have the option to book additional “shoulder” dates when reserving their rooms through the housing portal. Inventory is very limited on shoulder nights—we encourage you to arrive on July 17, 2024, and depart on July 21, 2024.

  • This does not include youth groups who book alternative housing.

I was contacted by a housing vendor for the National Eucharistic Congress. Is this legitimate?

HPN Global is the only approved, official housing vendor for the National Eucharistic Congress. We understand that unauthorized housing companies may contact you and advertise cheaper rates, or they may imply or claim an affiliation with the National Eucharistic Congress. Unfortunately, some past attendees of events on a similar scale have fallen prey to these companies and were unable to recuperate the money they spent on rooms that did not exist. If you are contacted by any company that is NOT HPN Global, please notify the National Eucharistic Congress housing team at before providing any information to a secondary housing vendor.

I have a special housing request. How do I make sure it is fulfilled?

To accommodate the many specific needs that individuals or families attending the National Eucharistic Congress may require, all attendees are able to book their room through the housing portal. On the housing portal webpage, attendees can send any special request directly to the hotel. For other groups with alternative housing, please contact HPN Global at to make your request known.

When will I hear about my group housing assignment?
  • Groups will receive an acknowledgment email within 72 hours of submitting their booking request through the National Eucharistic Congress housing portal. Hotel assignments and booking links will be sent to you by the National Eucharistic Congress housing team within 45–60 days. Hotel assignments will be on a first come, first served basis. If you did not receive an acknowledgment upon completing your booking in the National Eucharistic Congress housing portal, please reach out to

  • Members of a youth group who booked alternative housing will receive their assignment in mid-May 2024.
