The Warwick, it is!

Wow, was that ever a tough decision. The other hotel came in and met the Warwick’s offer. All things being equal there were a few things weighing heavily on the side of the Warwick:

  1. It’s a nicer hotel with some old world charm
  2. It’s in a better location. Though only a mile apart the Warwick is in the “free ride” zone and closer to the waterfront. It’s also in the Belltown area which is a gorgeous little area filled with wonderful restaurants and closer to Pike Place Market.
  3. Parking is $3 cheaper a night.

The contract is being faxed over in the morning so after that we’ll be all set. Rooms should be booked by Sept. 2nd to get our rate as detailed in my earlier post.

Stay tuned, I may have spoke too soon

I just heard back from the original hotel I’d been negotiating with and they’ve sweetened their offer. The room rates would be the same but they are offering much nicer lunches. Stay tuned, in either case the decision will be finalized tomorrow.

Houston, we have a potential meeting space!

Warwick Hotel's Cambridge Room

After much negotiation I have a tentative agreement with the Warwick Hotel to host our classes. They are offering you a very reasonable rate of $109 + taxes per night. That is a great rate for Seattle! Included in your deal is $12 a day for parking (normally $27 daily) and free in-room Wi-fi (normally $11 a day). I’m not sure why but most hotels in Seattle charge internet access fees. Hotels.com rates the Warwick as a 3.5 star hotel with a 4.1 customer rating, which is quite good. It is located in the Belltown area of Seattle which is a trendy, fun area with access to some fabulous restaurants. The hotel is only 2 blocks from the monorail and 5 blocks from Seattle’s famed Pike Place Market, a must see!  If you are traveling from out of town please don’t feel you need to rent a car. You can now catch the Light Rail from Sea-Tac Airport to downtown Seattle. Once you reach downtown you can catch the monorail or a cab for a small fee.  Our contract should be finalized later today so that you can begin booking your rooms by Thursday.
