non-smoking, free parking, free breakfast, & free wireless. Date: July
10th (checking out on the 9th is fine too, pls let them know)

If you prefer a different arrangement then double beds, non-smoking please
ask reservations to when you call.
There is a commuter train station 1 block from the hotel that drops you at
the convention center (~20mins). I am working on some group rates for that
