Hotel Reservation Emails


Just a quick note to let those of you who have reservations with the hotel for Capricon to not panic. The hotel sent out a mass email confirming everyone’s hotel rooms. Unfortunately they all had the wrong dates on them. It was a mistake, the hotel is aware of the issue. They are fixing it and another email will be sent out with the correct information. Please disregard the emails you received from the hotel with the incorrect dates.

Room Rate Extended


Good news… There are a lot of you coming to Capricon this year. We’ve had to expand our room block yet again. That being said if you still want to reserve a room at the convention rate, please visit the hotel page on the Capricon website for a link to reserve your room. The Westin has agreed to continue to honor the convention rate until there are no rooms left available in the hotel. So act fast, when they’re gone, they’re gone.

Hotel Room Block


So it looks like a whole bunch of you are planning on coming to Cap this year. So many that we’ve had to go and increase the size of the room block. If you’ve tried to make a reservation in Cap’s room block recently only to be told there were no rooms available. The problem should now be solved, we’ve added rooms to the block.So go visit the Hotel page on our website for all the details on how to get a room.

And just as a reminder… if you’re having problems… we don’t know about it unless you tell us:

Having a problem getting a hotel room, email

Having a problem registering, email

Need a question answered and don’t know where to turn? email

When all else fails email If he can’t facilitate getting things fixed we’re in more trouble than we know.

Capricon 31 – Pre-Registration Update


Where does the time go? It’s just about six months or so until Cap 31 – ESCAPE!. February 10th through the 13th if you want to be precise. In case you’ve forgotten our guests of honor this year include John Scalzi, John Picacio, Janice Gelb and Stephen Boucher. And of course the usual fare of programming, special events, filk, art show, parties, etc.

If you haven’t registered yet, now’s the time! Early Pre-Registration ends August 31st. Right now you can register for $45 per person. On the 31st the price goes up to $50. You’re going to register anyway so why not save $5 in the process. All the information you need can be found on the registration page, including links to the online registration form as well as a printable and mailable registration form.

So here’s the registration pricing for your information in case you intend to slack…
Now through August 31st. — $45
September 1st through November 15th — $50
November 16th through the end of Pre-Reg (I’ll get back to you with this date) — $55
At the door — $70

We’re still at the Westin Chicago North Shore in Wheeling, IL this year, so if you’ve been to Cap in the last two years you know where you’re going. Rooms are the same price as they were last year $103/night (plus applicable fees and taxes). You can make your reservation now by visiting the Westin’s Capricon Registration page. And of course more information can also be found on Capricon’s own Hotel Information page. Our room block closes on January 18th 2011, so reserve a room before then or pay full price.

Looking forward to seeing you all at Cap this year, we’ve got a lot planned and are looking forward to sharing it all with you.
