The Adams Mark has decided to give us the "Run of the house", which means they have released *every* sleeping room.
And naturally, the remaining rooms filled up in a matter of days.There are currently exactly SIX rooms left in the hotel. I do not expect that they will last long. I have therefore arranged for overflow space at the same hotel we chose last year. Thus, if you try to make a room reservation and are told that the hotel is full, please call the HILTON TWELVE CAESARS (formerly the Radisson) at 215-879-4000.
The Hilton is located approximately 1/3 mile up the road in the next block. Room rates for Anthrocon are $119, which includes a *full* breakfast buffet each day (that's a full meal, not some piddling little continental breakfast thingy).
Now, some might ask, "Why not the Holiday Inn across the parking lot?" There are two reasons. (1) They already have a meeting going on there and have only a very small block of reserve rooms they were willing to offer to us, and (2) the best rate they would give us was $129 per night, which included no meals. We decided that economy would win out over a difference in walking distance of 224 yards (which I paced out myself).
Remember, he who hesitates has to walk. But at least he starts the day with a nice breakfast!
