As with our speakers, hotel arrangements have been proceeding apace (with a big hug and kiss to Vicki, who did the bulk of the work).
After doing ample due diligence (as in: months of trying) we ended up at the same place we were last time: not bad, since we know the room and the neighborhood, and got a pretty good deal, considering we're DFHs.
And so, here is the hotel information.
Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown
21 N Juniper Street
Philadelphia, PA, 19107
Reservations can be made directly with Marriott reservations at 1(800)321-2211 or 1(215)496-3200.
Our rate is $159.00 a night, and we have reserved 50 rooms for Friday, 50 for Saturday, and 10 for Sunday. (Good news: this is a LOT LESS than we thought we were looking at. Whew!)
Reservations should be made sooner rather than later, but the deadline for the group rate is Wednesday March 5, 2008.
