PyCon US 2012: You want hotel? We have hotels!

As noted in the previous post - we had a minor blip regarding the PyCon 2012 hotel - by minor blip, I mean we completely booked the Hyatt (our main hotel).

This issue has been resolved without needing me to resort to going to Home Depot and buying "The Dummies Guide to Hotel Building".

We now have plenty of rooms at:

Update 2/3/12:

Hilton Santa Clara - NOW FULL within walking distance of the venue. These rooms are marked as 159$/night - however, as we want to do whats right for attendees, we have asked the Hilton to credit each room night booked under out block 10$, while the PyCon master account will absorb the 10$ additional cost. This means that the base room rate for attendees will be 149$/night, matching the cost for the Hyatt.

The Avatar Hotel, Santa Clara - STILL AVAILABLE this one is not within walking distance, however the cost per night is 149$/night - matching our other rates, and we have negotiated a free shuttle for attendees to and from the Santa Clara Convention Center.

The Marriott Santa Clara - STILL AVAILABLE again, maintaining the room night cost, and while it too is not within walking distance, we will have a free shuttle to and from the convention center!

I must note: All of these agreements include room minimums - this means that PyCon will get charged a lot of money if we do not book the blocks we have contracted for.

In order for us to get credit for your hotel bookings, you must book through our registration and housing system at: https://us.pycon.org/2012/registration/register/ - or by contacting our housing bureau at pycon5-reg@cteusa.com or by phone at 847-759-4277.

Please book your rooms through us, and please book as soon as you can! You'll not only get a room for the conference - you'll help us out, and be a part of what is already the biggest Pycon on record. If you haven't registered? You need to - registration is capped at 1500 attendees, and by all estimates, we are going to hit that number and soon. (All financial aid recipients are accounted for in attendance and hotel, by the way.)

Jesse Noller, PyCon Chair.
