Don’t Forget to Book Your Room for GeekGirlCon ’19!

Today we’re exactly four months away from GeekGirlCon ‘19, and I don’t know who needs to hear this, but don’t forget to reserve a hotel room!

This year, in a slight change of pace, we’re partnering with Hyatt at Olive 8. We’ve struck a deal with them, and they’re offering y’all a rate of $149 a night. Also, the hotel is, like, a four minute walk from the Washington State Conference Center, which is so ideal. Don’t get me wrong, I love the constant energy of GeekGirlCon, but the idea of having a place of respite so nearby is a dream.

If you’d like to take advantage of our group rate, click through here to place a reservation. Once you’ve done that, read this interview with Tanya DePass, our first Featured Contributor for this year, and GET EXCITED.

Attending GeekGirlCon’19 from out of town? You’re going to need somewhere to stay, and you can’t get much closer than the Hyatt at Olive 8!

This year, we’re partnering with the Hyatt to offer reservations for the full con weekend (November 14 through 18) for just $149 a night. The Hyatt is right down the street from the Conference Center where GGC’19 will take place, close enough that you can pop back over in case you forgot something or need to charge your phone for a bit in the middle of the day. Make your reservations now!

Accommodations fit for a Geek!

Once again, we’ve partnered up with Hotel Max to bring an awesome deal for all you con-goers*!

If you’re planning to stay in town for GeekGirlCon this October 27-28, we have a group rate especially for our convention attendees. For just $169 per night, you get a spacious modern hotel room with a king size bed, free wifi, waived facilities fees, and additional amenities! And, if you want to be extra fancy, valet parking is only an additional $30.

Hotel Max is just a safe, short jaunt down to the Conference Center at the Washington State Convention Center, so you’ll be able to be in the city right when the convention opens, and you’ll have a place to keep your cosplay in pristine condition, or store all your Artist Alley swag. And even after our convention doors close, you can continue getting your geek on with various events around the city, or just chilling in your hotel room and watching your favorite TV series.

And, bonus! One of the reasons why we’re so excited to partner with Hotel Max again is that Hotel Max supports our organizational mission–for every room night that gets booked, we get a $5.00 rebate! So you can make your dollar go further in supporting our organization, and also be right onsite for the convention! It’s a win-win situation, if you think about it.

To get in on this awesome deal, book online or contact Hotel Max on +1 866.833.6299 and make sure you mention that you want to book with the GeekGirlCon 18 rate. The group rate is good for October 25 through October 29.

Make sure you don’t miss out! See you in October!

 

*And if you’re not a con-goer yet, what are you waiting for? Passes are available right now at our Early Bird rate!

GeekGirlCon ’17 Hotel Deals for You!

GeekGirlCon‘17 pass sales are underway! While you’re purchasing your super amazing con experience, don’t forget to make your hotel reservations using our group discount! We’re partnering again with Hotel Max in downtown Seattle to bring you an awesome deal on accommodation!

GeekGirlCon has reserved rooms for convention weekend (from Thursday night to Sunday) for $195 per night. With free wi-fi, a craft beer happy hour every night, and free coffee every morning, it’s no wonder that Hotel Max is our favorite boutique hotel in Seattle. You can even get valet parking and pet room service! Plus, we love Hotel Max because it’s such a short trip through the city to get to the Conference Center at WSCC.

All you need to do is book online at this site (no code needed) or call Hotel Max reservations at 866-986-8087 and reference GeekGirlCon 2017.

Additionally, this year, if you’d like to extend your stay and book for days before or after our booking period–for example, if you wanted to stay on Monday night after the convention to spend more time checking out the city–just contact Hotel Max when you reserve your room to receive the same $195 rate. The current non-discounted rate for reservations is about $300 per night, so think about how much more swag you can buy at the con with those savings.

Even if you’re not from out of town, it’s still a great deal to be so close to GeekGirlCon for the weekend. With over two days of amazing panels, video and tabletop games, hands-on science activities, celebrity sightings, after-dark events, you can afford to spend more time learning, laughing, playing and celebrating your geekdom with us!

Going to GeekGirlCon?* We have Hotel Options for YOU!

One of the best things about GeekGirlCon is that it’s two and a half days of amazing, family-friendly panels, merch, cosplay and science experiments! There’s a lot we have in store for you for October 8 and 9, and that’s not to mention that there’ll be our kickoff party on the Friday before as well!

One of the worst things about GeekGirlCon is that at the end of the day you’ve got to schlep home with all your new swag, only to fight the traffic the next day to get back into the city. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just crash somewhere safe, comfortable and affordable nearby to the Conference Center at WSCC?
