# HOTEL UPDATE
Now is the time to book your hotel room. Rocket City Furmeet will once
again be back at the Radisson Suites Hotel on Memorial Parkway in
Huntsville. Almost all of the rooms in the hotel are mini-suites,
meaning they consist of two separate rooms with closing doors between
and a fold-out sofa bed in addition to the regular bedroom. A few of
them are larger suites, but they're limited in number so get your
reservations in early. They also all have a bar-sink, microwave, small
refrigerator, and a second TV in the bedroom. The hotel has a choice
of double beds or Queen size beds, and also a choice of smoking or
non-smoking rooms. The RCFM reserve block price will be $69 per room,
per night, plus tax, for 2006, the same as last year.
To book your room, you can book online by visiting the hotel online at
http://www.radisson.com/rcfm or by contacting the hotel directly at
256-882-9400. More information can be found at
