Hotel Announcement!

(blare of interstellar trumpets)

Westercon 66 is pleased as punch to announce that we have our hotel!

We will inhabit time and space July 4th-7th, 2013, in the Hilton Arden West, located only minutes from the state capitol and Old Town. Early arrivals will have fireworks aplenty to ooh and aaaah at! The ginormous Arden Fair Mall awaits your shopping pleasure equally nearby, in case you need a final touch for your hall costume, or just want to check out the enormity of it.

Room pricing is a simple $109/room/night, regardless of size. Parking is complimentary. The hotel is non-smoking, and offers wi-fi, as well as all of the function space we need!

Of course, we’re still over a year out, so the rooms aren’t available yet for reservation, but now you know where you’re going to hang your hat, or helmet.

Start making your plans to get to Westercon 66 – it’s gonna be awesome!

  1. What is the process for reserving a suite for party? What are the fees?

  2. What’s the status on hotel parking? If I read the hotel’s website correctly there is a $9 per day self-parking fee. Any chance this has been waived for those of us staying at the hotel? Or, at least a reduced rate?
    Thanks.

    • We negotiated free parking for all members in our contract (there was no fee for parking at the time, but we took no chances). We don’t know how the Arden West will deal with it; probably have a machine to validate your parking stub.

  3. When I use the group code I get told “The requested rate is not available.”
    This for check in Jul 3 and checkout Jul 9. Also tried Jul 8 checkout.

    Oh, and thank you for negotiating the free parking.

    • Did the system offer you other, lower rates? If so, take one of those and email your confirmation number to hotel@westercon66.org.
      We have a “best rate” clause in the contract, so your rooms should still count towards our totals.

      • Yes, I was offered lower rates. Congratulations also on having a best rate clause in the contract.
        Just applied for a Hilton Honors Reserve Card for the Gold status and free internet.
