Get a ROOM!!!
The cutoff date to guarantee the ApolloCon rate for hotel rooms is June 13. If you haven't got a room reserved, you should do it soon. You can reserve your room online, or you can reserve the old-fashioned way, by calling 1-800-222-8733 or 281-848-4000.

If you have any problems getting a room at the ApolloCon rate, contact our Hotel Liaison, and he'll get thinks straightened out.
Calling All Room Parties:
If you are planning on throwing a room party (or parties) at ApolloCon, you must register with the Hotel Liaison so that we can make sure you are in the party wing. If we don't place you in the party wing, you run the very real possibility of being shut down, and we don't want that. All I need is the name the room is reserved under, the confirmation number, the name of your organization and your room preference (large king, double, two connecting rooms, etc.)

For more details, see our Hotel page.

Send your info ASAP to hotelliaison.2008 @apollocon.org, and party on!
We need Party Buffers, too!
What's a party buffer, you ask? It's someone who sacrifices their own sleep for the good of the many. In other words, if you're willing to take a hotel room on the party floor between the parties and the rest of the rooms, you'll help us minimize the possibility of noise complaints. If you're willing to be a Party Buffer, contact hotelliaison.2008 @apollocon.org.
