As long as the hotel has availability they will honor the conference rates 3 days before and 3 days after the initial contract dates. Guests just need to book with the link for the initial contracted dates, and then contact the hotel to extend the reservations as they don’t typically hold rooms back on these dates in the specific group room block.
The first one is on the corner of the college and therefore walkable to all events:
The Broadway Columbia - a DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel  - 1111 East Broadway Columbia, Missouri 65201 USA $159 a night
Hampton Inn & Suites – COLUMBIA $145 per night - 1225 Fellow's Place Boulevard Columbia, Missouri 65201 USA

Guests can call the hotel directly at 573-875-7000, this will call the front desk. Now if the front desk is busy, they will offer to transfer the guest to the reservation, which is linked to the Hilton central reservation system.

Or the hotel has a generic reservation email they can send reservation requests or modifications to. That email is [email protected]. This account is monitored by the operations team of the hotel.
