New hotel available!! the Wyndham Grand Hotel Pittsburgh
We thought that we had enough rooms, but before we knew it, even the room block at the Marriottt City Center sold out. We tried to get additional rooms at our hotels but we were not able to at this time. Thanks to a bit of magic on the part of VisitPittsburgh Housing Services, though, we have added a block of rooms at the breathtaking Wyndham Grand Hotel.
This hotel, one of the city's most precious gems, is located a bit farther away than most folks are used to (about 3/4 of a mile, or about 1.1 km). They are offering a very affordable rate, however, at $129 per night (plus 14% tax) to make up for it. Anthrocon is also in discussion with their management about providing a shuttle service, which will likely have a fee associated with it if we are able to arrange it at all. Please stay tuned for further developments as our chairman continues to try the big-sad-soulful-eyes on them.
We have also been able to add some more 1-bedroom suites to our block at the Doubletree. If you don't want to walk all the way to the Wyndham and you enjoy living like royalty for a weekend (or have a large number of friends), note that all of the Doubletree suites have sofabeds in the parlor room.
So, if you are still in need of a hotel room, follow the link on our hotel page. We are quite confident that with the addition of the Wyndham, Anthrocon will have more hotel rooms than it could conceivably need for all of its 5000+ attendees for 2013!
