The initial blocking for Notacon is 100 rooms and is good through April 6, 2009. After that, rooms in the block may be issued to others on an as-needed basis. Reserve your room early!
The Wyndham has been kind enough to provide us with an extraordinarily competitive rate of $95 per night. The conference rate extends from April 16 through April 20, 2009.
To book your room online please use this link. If you have any questions or problems feel free to call directly at 1-216-615-7500. Make sure you tell them you are with the Notacon group.
Using Notacon's booking code entitles you to a discounted room rate, and helps defray our space costs. If you are concerned about noise issues, please book under the code, but notify the hotel that you would like to be placed outside of the room block. Both smoking and non-smoking rooms are available in single and double occupancy.
Note to smokers: The Wyndham is a completely non-smoking facility as of January 1, 2009. There is a $250 fine for anyone who does smoke in the guest rooms. However, smoking is allowed outside of the building. This includes the 3rd floor terrace area, which will be a designated smoking area for Notacon participants.
Logistics and Travel
The Wyndham is conveniently located right on the RTA Healthline bus route. This bus route extends from tower city (a hub for the RTA light rail service, including the Red line, which goes out to the airport) and through University Circle and Case Western Reserve University. The health line runs 24 hours a day. The trains run until about 4 AM. Fares are $2.00 each way on the bus and rapid. To explore all of your options, including maps and schedules, go to RTA's website.
Locals needing to park a vehicle may do so at the adjacent Hanna parking garage located on Huron road, which runs on the southern edge of the hotel. Parking is currently $12 / day. Valet parking is available at a cost of $20 / day. There may be other lots nearby that offer cheaper rates, check ahead. Check rates before parking as many of these lots are near our arenas and ballparks and may have "special event" pricing that is stupidly high. That said, we expect a quiet weekend as the Indians have away games and the Cavs' season ends on the 15th.
Please note that these prices are subject to change and are based on the best information we have at this time.
