Also, quick question. I picked pool deck because I know where that is. What exactly is the patio? Is it that area in front of the hotel by the bridge?
Generally speaking, individual groups make contingency plans in case of rain, and there's no one designated space for indoor gatherings, though the main lobby of the hotel is a popular choice. I might also recommend, if possible, potentially having a backup meeting time on Sunday in case of bad weather, as it's a pretty open day in terms of space.
In answer to your second question, the "patio" is short-hand for the Century Pavilion, the open outdoor space between the main convention area of the hotel and the underground parking structure. (You can see it on the map of the Ballroom Level here
). It's slightly smaller than the pool deck, but there's a lot less traffic moving through it at any given time, and it's better prepared than the pool deck to handle bad weather, as the space is partially covered.
