If you have been following Pandoracon for a while now you will already be familiar with the fact that we are going to give away two hotel room nights for one lucky winner on Sunday, September 30th; we will pick up the cost of the two nights* by presenting the winner with a check. But if you’re new to Pandoracon, guess what? We’re giving away two nights at the Pandoracon hotel!
For those of you familiar with the workings of small conventions, you will know that the cost of the convention space is relative to the number of hotel rooms booked as part of the convention. Currently about half of our quota is full and will probably fill up even more in the month leading up to Pandoracon, but if you are thinking of booking a room and are not yet fully decided we encourage you to make the choice to book. This is going to be a fun weekend that is very much a party; even if you’re local you might want to consider spending the night at the hotel so that you don’t miss any of the fun. PLUS, as mentioned above, you might actually win your room for free, and you will definitely be helping the convention contain costs and move on to an even better year two, year three, year four, and so on.
The Crowne Plaza Blue Ash is a fantastic little hotel with a very open feel on the inside . . . hmm, sounds rather like the TARDIS? The rooms are nice and clean, the staff is very polite and helpful, the buffet is very well priced and there are other food options within walking distance from the hotel, there are two bars (one which is right next to the pool), and all the suites we have booked for the room parties open up on to the atrium pool area (pictured below).
Currently there are plans for each House of Pandoracon to each have a party suite, the Klingons have a party suite, and there is a steampunk suite. If you have a group that interested in hosting a themed room party please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements to register your party and secure one of the party suites.
Room rates: Double or King $95 per night, Suite $115 per night. Call 513-793-4500 and mention Pandoracon, or book online using the Group Code “PAN” to get the convention discount rate; only rooms that are part of the Pandoracon block can be entered into the Free Hotel Room Draw.
* here’s the small print, even though it’s the same size as all the other print . . . we will cover the cost of the room, but this does not cover the additional cost of the tax charge, sorry.
