Please make your reservations soon. We have guaranteed a large block of rooms, and can add more if needed—again, as long as they are available. The hotel is very busy on weekdays, so it is very important to let the hotel know if we need additional rooms ASAP. We have many people who have expressed interest in coming early or staying over to sightsee, so we expect our room block will fill quickly. The cut-off date for room reservations is October 27. If our block is full or you have any problems making reservations, please contact Sandra personally.
