Anthrocon Hotel Nearly Full
From Samual Conway (chairman of Anthrocon) on alt.fan.furry: ""Magic Tom" Hughsted, convention services manager at the Adams Mark, has informed me that we are approaching NINETY PERCENT FULL.
Make your hotel reservations *NOW NOW NOW*!
DO NOT WAIT!"Call 215-581-5000 and ask for IN-HOUSE RESERVATIONS. If you call the Adams Mark national reservation number (or if you get transferred there), you may be told that the hotel is full when there are still rooms available. This is a perennial problem that every hotel chain seems to have. You must call the hotel directly during normal business hours.
We ARE arranging for overflow space at a nearby hotel which will be comparably priced.
Tom also told me that the elevator renovation project is on schedule. We should have at least one of the lifts working on the high-tech new system by the time our con rolls around; likewise, one of the service elevators will also be upgraded, so the maids should be able to actually get to people's rooms this year.
Don't forget our Invention Fair, too. Check out
