Otakon 2003 dates announced

Taken from the Otakon ML... finally, some info... ^_^;

The contract wrangling, wordsmithing, and "i" dotting is FINISHED. The day you've been waiting for is HERE!

With this post, Otakorp, Inc. proudly announces that OTAKON 2003 will be held August 8-10, 2003 at the Baltimore Convention Center! Rates and cutoff dates will be posted shortly.

We also have two hotels lined up and ready to take your reservations! There are more coming, of course, but why wait? BOTH of these hotels are real treats to stay at:

WYNDHAM BALTIMORE INNER HARBOR
Reservations: (410) 385-6700 or 1-800-WYNDHAM (1-800-996-3426)
Nights Available: Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday
Rates: Single/Double/Triple/Quad $132.00/night -- must identify as part of the "Otakorp, Inc." group to get the group rate. (I'll work on getting them to include "Otakon" in that).
Cutoff: July 7, 2003

or:
RADISSON PLAZA LORD BALTIMORE
Reservations: (410) 539-8400 or 1-800-333-3333

As mentioned, more hotels are "being processed", so look for frequent updates on our website: http://Otakon.com

Otakon is ALSO happy to announce our first confirmed guests!

Hm... Isn't one of them connected to the BCC? I think I'll go for that....

I *think* (I should check) I stayed in the Hyatt last year, which was connected by that skywalk from the BCC... very convenient! I think that after the Days Inn (that's the one directly across the street, right?), it is the next closest. They didn't give a con discount, but I got a nice price thanks to AAA. I'd recommend it.

I'm hoping to go this year, but I'm getting away from the east coast... so it might not happen. However, I might be able to attend all those fun west coast cons instead. ^^

The Sheraton is connected RIGHT to the BCC and is RIGHT THERE. But it doesn't have Otakon rates. In fact, they don't really like Otakon that much anyway ^_^*

Only problem; it's expensive.

Taught me to get my cheap hotel rooms early. I had to stay there for 2001.

The only two hotels directly linked to the BCC are the Hyatt and the Sheraton. Neither have a contract with Otakon.

We *do* have more hotels coming tho.

The Otakon website has not been updated yet, however the location map is accurate.
