Important Updates for the Hotel in 2023

For those of you used to the hotel we've been using for the past decade - and those joining us for the first time! - please take the time to review the information below for updates on hotel operating procedures.

Parking at the Hotel
Parking in the hotel parking lot is FREE for all CONsole Room attendees. However, in 2023 the hotel is implementing a new paid parking system - you will likely see signs throughout the parking lot with QR codes guiding you to a parking website. In order to access the free parking, please make sure to stop by Registration or Con Ops soon after your arrival at the hotel to receive access to our free parking code.

Cash vs. Cashless Amenities
The hotel has moved to a (nearly) fully cashless system.

CASHLESS:If you plan to eat at the hotel bar/restaurant, you will need to either charge your meal to your room (if you are staying overnight at the hotel) or use a credit or debit card.

CASH ONLY: Please note that the cash bars in our convention space (by or in the ballroom on the second floor) on Thursday (for VIPs), Friday, and Saturday nights will only accept cash.

The (TARDIS) Pool is No Longer in the Library
The hotel has updated their pool area and it is now OPEN for those staying overnight at the hotel.

Should I Stay?

Some people may wonder why they should bother staying at convention hotels – does it matter? The short answer is…yes!
Those room nights support our use of the hotel’s function space, so having attendees stay there is very important to the convention.
