Hotel reservation for CANvention 50

#1

Post by halfquart » Wed Nov 06, 2019 5:32 pm

All,
The reservation process for CANvention 50 in St. Louis is open. We are expecting this to be as big if not bigger than CANvention in Milwaukee. We are asking folks make their hotel reservations as early as possible as the Cubs are in town playing the Cardinals that week. The rate of $129.00 + tax is good for 9/6 - 9/12. Parking is $18.00/day.
Let me know if you have any questions, about CANvention that is....

Thanks goes out to Pat Porter that put this together...

The good news is, it's quite simple. I already made my reservation, and the process was easy. Simply click on the link immediately below. It will take you to the site where you can complete your entire registration:

https://book.passkey.com/event/49927893 ... 84420/home

I'll offer some basic info regarding the rooms and dates momentarily, but there's nothing I wish to emphasize more than this: If you have even the slightest notion to attend CANvention 50 and stay in a hotel, please make this reservation ASAP, for multiple reasons:

*This is expected to be the best-attended CANvention in many years. Attendance may even exceed Milwaukee 4 years ago, and many of you remember how wonderfully packed that CANvention was. Expect rooms to disappear faster than normal.

*By registering early, you EITHER lock in your room, OR if the room block is already full, you make it clear to the CANvention Committee that they must work with the Marriott to open another block of rooms - or a second hotel, if needed. The earlier the CANvention Committee knows more rooms are needed, the more opportunities they have to negotiate additional blocks of rooms, and more blocks of rooms means more BCCA members in the hotel, which enhances room-to-room trading prior to the official CANvention trade floor opening on Thursday and so on. It's a win-win if you register early.

*You can cancel up to 24 hours before your reservation goes into effect without any penalty. There's essentially no financial risk to early registration.

So to reiterate - make your reservation ASAP!

Now for some details:
- Our hotel is the Marriott St. Louis Grand at 800 Washington Ave, St. Louis, MO 63101. Here's a Google Maps link to the location:
https://maps.app.goo.gl/akcdFDwyY7Vbpk187

- The room rate is $129 per night (same as this year's Albuquerque rate), double occupancy, with the option of one king bed or two double beds. Make sure you see this rate when you are completing this reservation. These rates don't include tax.

- Parking is $18/night, with in-and-out privileges.

- These rates are good from Sunday, September 6 to the following Sunday, September 13. The official dates of CANvention 50 are September 10 to 12 (the weekend after Labour Day).

- The trade floor is at the convention center across the street.

If you have any difficulty making your reservation, or especially if you discover that there are no more rooms of the type you are requesting (i.e. you want two double beds but the site is only offering a single king bed), contact Beer Dave directly at beerdave@fuse.net. Don't hesitate to let one of us know if you're having issues!

If you want to make a special arrangement like, say, renting a suite instead of a standard BCCA 1-or-2-bed room, I recommend you call the Grand Marriott directly at 314-621-9600 to make your special reservation.

FYI, you may get an email or two from BCCA as well with these details, just so you know.

Finally, registration for the actual CANvention won't be available until next year, per the normal practice. Check your forthcoming BCCA magazines and emails from BCCA for details on when CANvention registration opens.

Feel free to reply with any questions, and I'll share answers to any general-interest questions in a subsequent email.

Thank you for your continual support of our great hobby.

Booked this on Wednesday night, seven minutes after the BCCA email arrived.

Kind of suspicious that they'd be QUOTE UNQUOTE sold out this quick. I gotta believe that they don't have their block allocations right for Saturday night.

Hey, @YooperAho, rooms are available if you tell them now that you'll check out on Saturday, not Sunday. Make that reservation and then add Saturday night when the cancellations start coming in.

Busch Stadium's a 10-minute walk! I might need to show up in my Cubs shirt and my Nationals hat just to antagonize as many Cardinals as possible.

Spoke with the CANvention committee and they are now aware of the issue. Looks like you can book every night except Saturday. The blocked rooms might be booked but that just means the committee needs to go in and work with the hotel for the next block. Please if you have any questions feel free to reach out to me.

Just got done booking Tuesday thru Friday nights without any problems. The 18.75% tax bumps the room rate up considerably. If you are doing it on-line be sure to uncheck the box at the bottom of the page unless you want to receive endless promotional emails from Marriott. I almost didn't see it.

What the heck is the 18.75 tax broken down as? Extra towel? The 18 bucks a day to park at a hotel your staying at also seems like a schiester deal. Why is every year it seems the fee's and taxes go up and you get nothing for it?

I tried booking Saturday night (I have the Wed-Fri nights already booked) again today (11/11) and block still not released, so unable to book it yet.
Any news about when the block will open? Beer Dave hoped to have it all taken care of this past weekend, but I guess the hotel is giving problems?
I just don't want to forget to book it, and then 10 months from now realize it and have problems.

I booked my room online with no problems whatsoever. Booked for Tuesday to Saturday. Let's get a big group together to do one of those more in-depth tours of Anheuser-Busch on Wednesday! Looking forward to seeing y'all at what should be the best Canvention ever.
