[EFM] [Fwd: [802.3] 802all: Last Chance: Book at Fairmont VCR ASAP !]
Forwarded on behalf of Dr. Rigsbee.
ATTENTION: All IEEE 802 Attendees
We have recently been informed that due to late cancellations
there are still a few rooms available at the Fairmont Vancouver Hotel,
but you must book NOW or it will be too late. See below for details.
This is definitely your best choice because not only is it a great hotel,
it is located directly across the street from the Hyatt where most of the
meeting activities will be. If you got booked somewhere else you
should definitely consider switching to the Fairmont. It's way cool !!!
You have now missed the cut-off for Pre-Registration at $250, but
you may still web register at the On-Site rate ($300) and avoid
having to wait in long lines at the On-Site registration desk.

See you in Vancouver !!!

SUBJ: Hyatt Regency is: NOW SOLD OUT !!!
The Hyatt is now Sold-Out and we recommend the Fairmont as the best
choice for an alternate because it is just across the street, so book your
reservation NOW or you may wind up stuck at a HoJo 20 miles away. July is
HIGH SEASON so once these rooms are gone, it may be very difficult to find
anything else. You can always cancel/modify without penalty if your plans
a) ROOMS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE FAIRMONT HOTEL VANCOUVER !!!
We have arranged for a room block at the Fairmont Hotel with a discounted
IEEE 802 Group (code: GREEE1) room rate: $250.00 (Canadian) for single
occupancy, or $260.00 (Canadian) for double/twin occupancy + tax per night.
Please make your room reservations directly with the hotel using the IEEE
802 Hotel Reservation Form (page 5 of the Meeting Info PDF), the web, or
by phone. Cancellations made prior to 6 pm of arrival date will incur
no penalty. If you do need to cancel, make sure you get a cancellation
confirmation number. The Fairmont is located just across the street
from the Hyatt, so walking back and forth is easy.
