21 Atwells Ave, Providence, RI 02903
RKO CON 2019 is now working with the Hilton Hotel in Providence. After engaging in heavy discussion with them, we are happy to say that the Hilton "gets it". The sooner you book the better chance you can get the type of room (single, double) you desire within the RKO CON Room Block.
- Guaranteed Lowest Rate Other than military discounts, if hotel rates drop so will yours. This includes AAA.
- Room Types The Hilton has a 2:1 ratio of single to double beds. Rooms with single beds are just as large, thus more open floor space. We ask (but do not demand) that you book a single if that's all you need to help out your con-mates. At some point, there will only be singles.
- Multiple Roommates If you order for > 2 people in a room, the price WILL go higher.
- Shoulder Days If you add a date before or after the 3 days: Fred currently negotiating with hotel on how to handle that. Until then ...
- Make a separate reservation for the “shoulder days” of Wednesday or Sunday.
- No guarantee, but call the hotel and ask what they can do to help you.
- Check back here again for a post-negociated update on this issue.
- Room Assignments Currently, we are not concerning ourselves with specific room assignments. Currently, you are just booking your room(s). While we cannot make any individual promises on room preferences given your aggregate demands, it is in the contract that Amanda Vetelino will be working with You and the Hotel within the weeks before the con to give you your prefercnes as close as geometrically possible.
- Responsibility Block Currently is for the bottom 3 floors. If we fill that, we will contact the hotel for either a Responsibility Block or a Courtesy Block to get the next floor up. We we also be reaching out to overflow hotel candidates.
- Debit Cards There will be future announcements regarding hotel policies. Goal is to eliminate or minimize surprises.
- Main Ballroom All main Friday afternoon / evening events and Saturday afternoon events will be held here. We will be busing people to/from the Con Main Event from the Hilton.
- Auxiliary Room Registration, alternative events, and of course After Gatherings will be held in the Roger Williams Room which we will have 24x3.
