As many of you know, there were some, well, challenges with the hotel back in July. The good news is that we had a very long and very productive meeting with the hotel management in August.

Here are a few things we’d like to pass along from that meeting:

First, we want you to know that the hotel manager repeatedly expressed that she was extremely unhappy with the service they provided to our group.

Second, due to the situation, the hotel has voluntarily renegotiated our contract for 2017.

Some of the key features in the new contract involve some added value for the room rates, including free parking for one car per room, two complimentary continental breakfasts for each room, and an early check-in option to hopefully reduce lines on Friday.

Third, the hotel is the process to updating/renovating the guest rooms (and hallways).

Lastly, the hotel has committed to working very closely with the convention throughout the year to ensure a better overall experience for everyone.

Based on this meeting, and since our 2015 con was a much better experience than we had in 2016, we have no reason to doubt that the hotel can return to the standards we expect.


NOTE: The room block is set-up at the Radisson, but due to the contract renegotiation, online reservations will not be available until the end of the month. You should still be able to reserve by phone now, however, if you call the hotel’s direct line.

Some of our staff were on WFMY's (CBS) The Good Morning Show today... but ignore their attendance estimates. They are a bit exaggerated. ;)
