Vintacon IV Hotel Info and Survey

Hi Everyone!

I spoke with the manager at the Murphy’s Historic Hotel today. They have rooms available for us for Friday, October 13 and Saturday, October 14 (and Sunday, October 15 if anyone wants to stay an extra day). These are in the "modern" portion of the hotel. These rooms are single queens for $99.00 per night. There are two mini-suites available for $109.00 per night. One has a queen bed and a queen size convertible sofa (Spring and I will be taking this one); the other has two queen beds.

There are a couple of ways we can handle the room block. The first option is a formal contract with the hotel. If we book our minimum number of room nights, we will receive a 15% discount on the room rate. However, we have to pay a 50% deposit for the "total group stay" up front. The second option is to announce the hotel to folks and let you make your reservations on your own. The room rates still apply, but we will not get the 15% discount.

We can’t afford to front the $1000 deposit on the rooms, so we need to know your thoughts and preferences on this. Are people willing to commit to the dates and give us a deposit up front for the room? We would also need to know if you are planning on staying both Friday and Saturday nights, or just one of the two nights (and if so, which one).

You can reply to the list here, or off list to me at dwg1 at pacbell dot net.

Thanks everyone!
