Warpstock 2005 Hotel reservations now open
June 11, 2005 by Andy Willis
The ninth edition of the annual Warpstock event will be held at the Wyndham Harrisburg-Hershey hotel this year. The four day event will start October 6th with half day classes scheduled Thursday and Friday October 6 and 7 and the general Warpstock presentations on Saturday and Sunday October 8 and 9.
We have negotiated a very good room rate with the hotel - $99 for either a single or double room. Their regular corporate rate for these rooms (not the inflated rack rate) is $169 a night. The hotel has assigned us some additional rooms for 2 days prior to and 2 days after the event, but can't guarantee the room rate for those days once the limited numbers are used up. If you encounter a problem with making reservations please contact us at email@example.com so we can attempt to remedy any glitches as soon as possible.
To make reservations you can call the Wyndham 800 reservation number: 1-877-999-3223 (toll free reservation) or outside U.S./Canda 1-972-915-7070 (International Direct Dial rates apply.) The direct Wyndham Harrisburg-Hershey hotel phone number is: 1-717-564-5511 and their fax: 1-717-564-2476. When calling the hotel to make your reservation, please make sure to mention you are with "Warpstock" in order to receive the special rate.
Online you can access information about the hotel at: http://www.wyndhamharrisburg.com/ You can make reservations online here.
To get the low Warpstock rate you must enter the Group code: 1006772TH You MUST USE this GROUP CODE to get the negotiated rates in their online reservation system.
These rates are guaranteed for the assigned block of rooms only until September 22nd at 12:00 midnight. Please make reservations as early as possible to make sure you have the rooms you need.
We have learned that it is a good idea to join Wyndham by Request. https://www.wyndham.com/wbr/join.wnt Membership is free and includes various benefits such as free, in-room High Speed internet access. There is no advantage to Warpstock for you to do this, we are just advising you to do this for the free additional benefits. As of now, because of the outrageous expense there are no plans to provide free internet availablity in the exhibit area as we have done in the past.
