World Fantasy Convention 2005

Backup Hotels

The Concourse Hotel block is full, though some rooms may open up as people adjust their travel plans. We have made the following backup arrangements:

For those staying at the Edgewater and Doubletree, the convention is working on shuttle and taxi services.

The closest, comparabale backup hotel is The Edgewater, which is about two blocks north of the Concourse on the shores of Lake Mendota. The Edgewater is holding 22 Junior Suites for us available at a convention rate of $139. Be sure to reserve using the group number/name as these suites usually go for $199!

The suites have a variety of configurations and sleep four. Some have a small kitchenette. Bookings must be made by Oct. 3 to get the convention rate.
