Got another small block of rooms added -- code is JQU (conference/group: jQuery Project) and you need to book over the phone to get the discounted rate of $199/night (so you don't have to look it up: Hilton Boston Logan Airport, 1-617-568-6700).
These are available to the general public. We are working to get more so if these go fast we might be able to get some
I'll also be posting some cheaper hotel options in another thread that a couple of team members and myself researched this weekend.
Just a heads-up: the rate appears to only be good for two nights (Friday & Saturday). If you want to stay over on Sunday (say, if you're not leaving until Monday), they it's full-rate ($299). This could be an issue for a lot of people --- for example, the last flight from Boston to Vancouver on Sunday appears to be at 5:35 PM, and the last session isn't over until 5:45).
it appears the hilton folks are very confused... two coworkers just got rooms and were told saturday was sold out, but friday was available for that rate and then received email receipts for 2 nights at that rate...
I guess it depends on who you get on the phone there.
Excellent. Thank you for getting a group rate for us, even if it is limited. I finally bit the bullet and registered (and happy I did). I almost didn't because of the location; $300/night, $32/day parking with no public transportation, started to add up quickly. It's still pricey, but the group rate helps!
Fyi, I was just able to get Saturday night at the group rate. Thanks!
