Notice – Marriott hotels has a policy that requires an additional charge for more than 2 people per room. The Westin Northshore will not be charging that fee on the Capricon rooms. However, there is no way for the Westin to change the booking website. So please book your room as normal. If you have more than 2 people in your room, once you are on-site please confirm there is no additional charge when you check into the hotel. Prior to the convention if you have any questions please email At the convention if you have any issues, contact Operations and they will get you in touch with the Hotel Liaison.

There is currently not a business center in the hotel due to remodeling. Please plan on any printing needs being done offsite. Thank you!

If you would like to throw a Party at Capricon, that’s a great idea! You can read more about that on the Party page, or contact the Party Liason at for more information.
