I'm here with some great news about the hotel reservation process (other than that it is up and running with codes for Party Floor (PHL) and non-party Floor (PHI))
There has been a drop in the rates! The new rate is $119. This is the rate that you will be charged at the hotel, If you have paid previously, your rate will be adjusted down to the new rate, you. We are working on a more elegant solution to that, the new rates will be posted on the website soon. The important thing is that you get your reservation in as early as possible to ensure that the Hotel Gods look favorably upon us in the future :-)
Of course I would advise getting your Philcon 2010 membership as well to complete the set. All the wonderfulness starts at http://www.philcon.org
Here is the news from Gary Feldbaum
The rate for hotel rooms for Philcon 2010 has been reduced
The new rate is $119. This rate will apply whether there are 1, 2, 3
or 4 people registered to the room.
The rates for suites remain the same.
It make take a day or two before the hotel's reservation system shows
the new rates.
If you already made a reservation in the Philcon Hotel block, your
rate will be decreased automatically.
If you made a reservation outside the Philcon block at a rate which
was greater than $119, the hotel will not decrease your rate unless
you cancel the original reservation and make a new reservation ( or
ask the operator at the reservation service to do this for you).
If you already made a reservation at $119 or less, please let us know,
so we can claim credit for your hotel nights.
We will be announcing this rate change on the website and via other
PLEASE MAKE YOUR HOTEL RESERVATIONS NOW IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE SO ALREADY.
It is important that we get the number of reservations up as quickly
