      I know you guys have been discussing the hotel stuff here for the last two weeks or so but I just wanted to post this email that is going out to subscribers in the next day or so. When the website is updated it will have the same list of hotels from below with rate information.

      Thanks and Talk to you soon,

      Important Hotel Information for Pittsburgh Comicon 2009
      --------------------------

      The 2009 Comicon will be without our usual host hotel. The Radisson (soon to be the Doubletree) which was to be completed September 1st is now not opening until closer to December. Although inconvenient, we are forging ahead using other local hotels. We will be booking the majority of our guests and staff in The Hampton Inn and The Holiday Inn, but I have listed other hotels in the area below. If you get on our website under Show Info, http://www.pittsburghcomicon.com/showinfo.html the hotels are all listed with their amenities and rate information. (please note the rate information is the best we can currently provide but is subject to change).

      All the hotels listed will be serviced by the Convention Bureau's Shuttle which will be taking people back and forth from the Hotels to the Convention Center all weekend long. We will also have transportation in place for our guests to get them from the hotel to the Convention Center. We are sorry about the inconvenience and we look forward to returning to the Doubletree (formerly the Radisson) in 2010.

      Here is the list of hotels for your convenience,

          I believe that will be taking place at the Holiday Inn this year. I think they are looking at providing their entire restaurant to support the study of post-con activities. :) The Hampton, while a great hotel, only has their breakfast area and the Outback Steakhouse next door to provide for entertainment. The Holiday Inn has some internal areas for meetings and such that are ideal for this year's situation.
