UPDATE!: Only Business Kings and one Workout Suite are available at this time!

Anthrocon's hotel rooms are not yet available for reservations! On Monday, February 3, 2014*, at 11:00 AM EST, we will throw open the doors for people to make reservations at the Westin Convention Center (our flagship hotel), as well as our all-within-easy-walking-distance satellite hotels, the Doubletree, Courtyard by Marriott, Hampton Inn, Marriott City Center, Omni William Penn, the Wyndham Grand, and (new this year!) the Renaissance.

Reservations for Westin Hotel suites (and ONLY SUITES) can be made starting...now! Suites are deluxe rooms as described below and are more expensive than regular hotel rooms, which this year will be about $162 ($185 with tax) per night. We make suites available early because of the high demand. Remember, only suite reservations at the Westin are being accepted at this time. Regular room reservations begin on February 3.

In order to secure a suite, you must send an email to ceo(at)anthrocon.org with the phrase WESTIN SUITE REQUEST in the subject line. Once again: send an email, not a private message, not a Tweet, not a text, etc. Include the full (real) name that the reservation will be under. We will send you back an email with instructions on how to go about reserving a suite through our special contact at the Westin.

Here are descriptions of the Westin’s suites and the 2014 prices for Anthrocon members. Prices shown in parentheses are the total approximate price with tax included. You can click on each name for a floorplan. UPDATE!!! All suites with double beds are currently sold. Only suites with king beds, as listed below, are available.

1) BUSINESS KING - SOLD OUT.

2) WORKOUT SUITE $285 ($325) per night. A bedroom with one king bed and a separate medium-sized parlor with several pieces of exercise equipment installed (roughly 500 sq ft). The exercise equipment is stationary and cannot be moved from the room.

Remember, you must email the chairman in order to request a suite, and only suite reservations at the Westin are available at this time. All other reservations can be made starting at 11:00 AM EST on February 3, 2014.

* Except for supersponsors, who can begin making reservations at all hotels starting on January 31. More information will be sent by email.

Big Paw just got his reply....still waiting for mine.  Instructions in this thread only said to send full real name but told BP to include the con badge number anyway. Would have done the same for mine but still waiting to find out how/when to get myself registered, so no con badge number...yet.

Add 'ceo@anthrocon.org' to your contacts list and/or other white lists; this should avoid any problems with spam filters.

Then you are in the wrong forum and on the wrong thread.
You should be considering making your own thread in the
"Room Share-Need a Room" forum, or replying to threads in the
"Room Share-Room to Offer"forum.

Naturally, activity in those fora is very quiet now because there's
nothing to report, but as soon as people start getting rooms in the
main blocks, those fora will explode with activity.

Curious... would one have better chances calling the westin when 11am rolls around on Feb. 3rd or filling out the form online for room reservations?  I have heard the westin fills up in less than a minute?

Since the only way to reserve a room at the convention rate is through the VisitPittsburgh website, calling the Westin directly would be a waste of time.

BTW, it's the Courtyard that fills up the quickest.  The Westin will take a half-hour or so and the rooms with two beds will go fastest.

Charlie is correct. You cannot make any reservations for Anthrocon by calling the hotels directly.  All that will do is waste time.

IIRC,
the Courtyard fills up within a few minutes,
and the Westin's Quad rooms (2 beds for 2 people each)
fill up within an hour or so,
and the rest of the Westin rooms take anywhere up to
about 18-24 hours from opening time to fill.

Given the lines for the elevators at the Westin,
staying there is a definite advantage for the young folk
who plan on being awake at odd hours and visiting, say,
the Zoo (which has now moved to the DLCC ground floor),
and fursuiters (with an elevator to their room), but for
many others, staying a few blocks away and away from noise
when trying to sleep can be a definite advantage.

Otherwise, I don't think of the Westin as that critical
for a room.

Would there be a way to get a link showing how a corner suit is set up again? I saw it was removed after they were booked and wanted to show my roommate what the room looked like roughly again.
