Denvention 3 Hotels/Facilities

Note: While these hotels may be partially sold out, some people do cancel rooms, and, sometimes, hotels will allocate additional rooms to us. The hotels will return these cancelled rooms or add new rooms to our blocks. If you want to try to get a room on a sold-out night, periodically use the appropriate hotel form to see if any rooms have been returned/added to the block. Again, we can't guarantee that you can get a room this way, but you may be able to. How to book a suite.

The following hotels have rooms available for most nights of Denvention:

If you have multiple people booked into a room with different last names and Starwood Preferred Guest numbers, then you may get a notice of an SPG number mismatch. If that happens, you need to delete the extra guest, and make the reservation. You can then change it to add the person later. Alternatively, make the booking without the SPG number, and add that to the reservation later. Either of those changes can be made by calling the Westin reservations center.

Hotel Booking Information

We are in Denver at a very exciting time. It has become a much sought-after meeting destination, and we're only the third largest convention in the city on our weekend. We will be sharing convention and hotel space with John Deere reps and the American Statistical Association (a group that will surely want to peek into our programming).

Part of the fallout of Denver becoming so popular is that to get anything like the rates fans are used to, we're blocked into several hotels. This is good news for those folks who want to use their points for a particular chain. It means we aren't at one or two hotels, but all of our properties are located within walking distance, and have public transportation readily at hand as well.

For those of you who've never been to Denver, or haven't been since their last Worldcon, you're going to find this a pleasant downtown for a Worldcon. The upgrades that have made Denver so popular include the 16th St. Pedestrian Mall -- a mile long pedestrian promenade through the heart of downtown. It includes excellent shops, restaurants, and outdoor cafes. And this is my favorite part -- free buses leave every 90 seconds. And there's a light rail system that runs from directly in front of the convention center, with stops near some of our hotels, and on the 16th St. Mall. It's a downtown area that is efficiently designed with pedestrians, who want to eat well, in mind

The hotel table includes rates and comments, and we've included a map of the downtown Denver area to put the layout in perspective. However, we also want to give you more information on our hotels.

The Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center (1 on the map) is the hotel directly across from the CCC. It is the newest hotel in our block, and is the best designed for handicapped access. Let us know if you need an accessible room. There will be a small amount of programming in this hotel.

The Crowne Plaza (2 on the map) is formerly a Holiday Inn and has been extensively renovated. It is between the Colorado Convention Center and the Sheraton (former Adam's Mark). For this reason Childcare will be located here as the most convenient for parents going to activities in both places.

The Courtyard Denver Downtown (3 on the map) is directly on the 16th St. Mall, in the heart of the restaurant area, and is just over 2 blocks away from the CCC. It has all the features that make Courtyards so popular with fans.

The Westin Tabor Center (4 on the map) is a AAA 4-Diamond property, and while we have blocks in some lovely places, this is one of the swankiest, and one with really spacious rooms for a downtown hotel. One of its features is a mile high heated rooftop pool. It is adjacent to the 16th St. Mall and close to the CCC.

The Denver Marriott City Center (5 on the map) is a luxury Marriott directly on the light rail to the CCC, but is also within easy walking distance (3 1/2 blocks). Besides the beloved by fans Marriott points, it offers a convenient location a block from the 16th St. Mall.

The Grand Hyatt Denver (6 on the map) is another award-winning AAA 4-Diamond hotel located within easy walking distance (roughly 3 1/2 blocks) of the CCC, near the Sheraton, and a block from the light rail that runs directly to the entrance of the CCC. Recently updated, and award winning, it is a gorgeous property with spacious rooms.

The Sheraton (former Adam's Mark) (7 on the map) We hope they keep the horse statues though. They make the lobby distinctive. In this hotel will be later evening programming, including dances and filking. All parties will be in the Sheraton. It is 3 1/2 blocks from the Convention Center, and on the 16th St. Mall. This hotel is the only hotel where you can hold an open party. The hotel is now non-smoking.

Reservation System Issues

We are not able to change a rate for the Hyatt Regency at the Colorado Convention Center if you have booked a partial stay at the D3 rate and take the other nights at a higher rate. Your options are to pay the higher rate for those night(s) or to book at another of the blocked hotels.

If you have handicapped accessibility issues, please alert us to them at as we are trying to give Hyatt Regency at Colorado Convention Center preference to those people.

If you booked at the Crowne Plaza or the Marriott Courtyard on the phone, be absolutely sure you booked at the convention rate. Apparently, some people who called these hotels booked at rack rate (which is much higher than the con rate) were told that Denvention could "fix" the rates later. It is not possible to change a public rate to a convention rate after it's been booked. Since both of these hotels are sold out, you will not be able to rebook at those hotels at the convention rate. However, don't forget that other hotels still have rooms at the convention rate.

Rooms can be reserved at the convention rates for nights between Monday, August 4 and Monday, August 11 inclusive. If you would like to arrive before or leave after these dates, or if your preferred hotel has already sold out on some of the nights during that time, make a reservation for the dates that you can and then E-mail to request an extension. We will see if the hotel is willing to give us additional nights, but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to extend any reservations beyond these dates, or that the hotel will give us more rooms on any night between August 4 and August 11 that we do sell out.

There are a number of quirks when trying to set up booking systems for seven different hotels. There are additional quirks because the Adam's Mark was bought last year and is becoming a Sheraton sometime early this year. What this means is that the process of booking rooms in each hotel is different from all the others. If you run into a problem booking, and it can not be solved by going back and trying again after rereading the directions, E-mail and let us know about it. Several of us are monitoring this list and we can alert the hotels when problems are discovered.

The Sheraton (former Adam's Mark) will be our party hotel and we have a limited number of rooms in this hotel. There will be no quiet floors there because we have to block all of our rooms around the suites that we have. All rooms will be noisy and we need to keep as many of them as possible for the people who will be hosting parties. Many people will have to "time share" the suites, as we anticipate that there will not be enough suites to go around. We will be rotating people out on a nightly basis so the people who will be in a suite one night will need rooms in the Sheraton for the nights when they do not have a suite.

Rooms are at a premium. So, under no circumstances should anyone book more rooms than they are planning to occupy. Please don't book in multiple hotels because you haven't decided in which one you will be staying. Our goal is that we get as many of you into the hotels you would most prefer, with as little drama as possible. Therefore, we will be monitoring the room bookings for duplicates and will contact people who have made duplicate bookings in order to verify the need for those duplicate bookings.

While several hotels are currently sold out, some people do cancel rooms. The hotels will return these cancelled rooms to our blocks. If you want to try to get a room at a sold-out hotel, periodically use the appropriate hotel form to see if any rooms have been returned to the block. Again, we can't guarantee that you can get a room this way, but you may be able to.

Booking Suites

Suites cannot be booked with the hotels, but only through the convention (available only by E-mailing ). We have a limited number of party suites in the Sheraton (former Adam's Mark), and non-party suites in the Crowne Plaza, the Marriott, and the Denver Grand Hyatt (not the Hyatt Regency Denver).

We have one bedroom suites for $249 in the Marriott, $164 in the Crowne Plaza, and Executive suites for $309 in the Grand Hyatt Denver.

Party suites in the Sheraton are $199 for an Executive suite, and $300 for a Deluxe suite.

If you want to book a suite, please email us at , letting us know your desired types and dates. Since there are only a limited number of suites, we will let you know if we're able to get you one.

In order to allocate suites, we will hold all requests until April 1, 2008. Suite requests received by that date will be treated as if they had arrived at the same time, in terms of preference. Requests arriving after that date will be assigned suites after the requests that have arrived by then are handled. For requests made by April 1, we plan on assigning suites by the middle of May.

Note that the suites in the Crown Plaza are not suitable for groups of people. They contain a king sized bed only, and no rollaway may be added. While there is a sofa, the hotel is undergoing refurbishing, and we do not know if these sofas will be sofabeds in August.

You cannot add additional bedrooms to the one bedroom suites in the Crowne Plaza, or to the Executive suites in the Grand Hyatt.
