What I wanted to give you was information about the number of rooms left at the Millennium Maxwell House Hotel (the official hotel for utopYA Con - shown on the left here), and a couple of blurbs from the manager. Alas, it was not meant to be. *head/desk*
Instead, I'm gonna relay the information from the utopYA website, tell you some of my own experiences, and inundate you all with photos of the hotel. Yay!
First of all, they're offering a rate of $105 per night on the standard rooms with the code:
Here's what you get:
This is the standard king
And here's the standard double:
Now, if you feel froggy, you can upgrade to a superior king (club room). Here's the photo of that room:
When I went, Tia and I stayed in the club room with two double beds (couldn't find a photo of that one, but it looks a lot like the standard double above). They have pictures at the ticket purchase link below. *grin*
It wasn't much more per day, and we got a free meal coupon (one each) for each night we were there. A buffet at Maxwell's (the hotel restaurant) was around $15, so it kinda balanced out. We loved it!
So, all that being said, you're now armed with the information you need to get to booking.
But wait! There's more! Isn't there always? *grin*
The hotel has a number of (the website says 2-3) shuttles every half hour or so from the airport, so there's no need to take/pay for a cab. How nice is that?
If you'd like to ship your books to the hotel ahead of time, they'll store them for you at a rate of $25 per box, per day. You'll need to call them at this number to talk with them about storing your sweet paper babies.
1-800-457-4460 M-F 8 am to 5 pm
I don't know how many rooms they have left (that's one of the questions I so dearly wanted to ask), but you better get cracking! Last year, people were scrambling at the last minute for rooms. You don't wanna be one of those folks!
As an added bonus, you can check out the utopYA schedule here. It's gonna be so much fun!
Again, the link to purchase your room:
Be sure and pop on over to the other official utopYA blogs this month for more awesome information on the hotel (like the bar, menu at Maxwell's, Nashville stuff to do, and in depth information on the rooms and amenities - there are TONS - available).
So, did you get your room yet? How was it last year?
Well, that's all for today, folks! Until next time, WRITE ON!
