Reserve your room at the DoubleTree

In order to make your reservation in this block, you must stay both Friday and Saturday nights! You cannot just make a reservation for one night. It is recommended you follow the link and make your reservation online, and not call the reservation phone line. The operators may not be able to access the room block, and may tell you the hotel is “full” already, as the management team has booked the entire hotel for our event.

Booking Link

The DoubleTree will have several Archon events scheduled throughout the weekend, including the Friday and Saturday dances, some gaming, and various panels and Kaffeeklatches.

All room parties will also be hosted here, on the ground floor just down the hall from the dance room. The courtyard and lobby areas have been extensively renovated and will be great for socializing throughout the weekend.

Except for the Courtyard, the public areas of the hotel's first floor will be designated NON-SMOKING.
