Even though it is past the booking deadline, all is not lost.
As long as the hotel still has rooms available, you can book them at the Albacon rate and part of the block… and they still have rooms available.
Why do I want to be part of the Albacon Block, you ask. There are two main reasons, the first benefits you, the second benefits Albacon. If you are part of the Albacon Block then we can work with the Hotel to insure that special requests are met. Requests like, “Near the elevator“, or ” Close to the Art Show“, or “Right next to the loudest party“. If your room is not part of the Albacon Block there is little we can do to help you. The second reason is that rooms booked as part of the Albacon Block count towards the total number of room nights that we told the hotel would be sold.
So call the Hotel today at (518) 458-1000 and tell them you need to book a room as part of the Albacon Block. If you end up forwarded off to Best Western reservations, just ask to be connected to extension 196 and leave a Voice Mail for Laura. Remember to leave your name, your phone number, and that you want a room for Albacon. She’ll call you back and set you up.
