Each facet of Westercon 72, NASFiC 2019, and 1632 Minicon has questions. Let's answer them!
Hotel Frequently Asked Questions:
I tried to make a reservation and it says the dates are not available or the block is sold out. What do I do now?
What dates are the room blocks available?
Is there a charge when reserving?
The Home2 Suites charges a deposit on reservation equal to one night at $119.00/nt-tax. Please note each hotel has individual information in the reservation section on their page through spikecon.org.
Are there smoking rooms?
Utah follows an indoor clean air act. None of the hotels in the block have smoking rooms. Fines will be assessed by the hotel and local law enforcement for smoking indoors. Local guidelines request no smoking within 25 feet of a door or window.
Utah Fandom Organization is not responsible for incidentals, damage, or individual reservations. We have also posted the local laws on smoking at: https://www.spikecon.org/attending/policies/local-legalities
How do I find the cancellation dates, requirements and options for each hotel?
Cancellation policies may vary depending on the rate or dates of your reservation. Please refer to your reservation confirmation to verify your cancellation policy. If you need further assistance, call the hotel directly or contact customer service. Alternatively, you can cancel your reservation online.
Do the hotels have a shuttle?
The Salt Lake International Airport is 26 miles from the Davis Conference Center and surrounding hotels. There is not a shuttle service at any of the hotels. There is a Midtown Free Trolley/Bus service that picks up in front of the Hilton Garden Inn. Information on that, and other transportation options is found on the Spikecon home page under locations/transportation.
What about convention and party signs?
Any signage posted during the event, regardless of venue, needs to be printed and not hand written. The operations team and information desk we have in the Davis Conference Center during the convention will assist with most questions on convention signage. Once we have a signage director we will post their email here.
For the outlying hotels and party situation we will post contact and guidelines on the website and with our party maven when the event gets closer and further defined.
Is there breakfast, internet, WIFI, Pets allowed, local shuttle services, package options, etc.?
What is the minimum age to reserve a room at the hotels?
The minimum age to reserve a room is 21 years old.
All the ADA or Accessible hotel rooms say they are booked in all four hotels, what do I do?
The four optioned hotels do not have as many rooms or accessible rooms, as metropolitan areas. The convention has the ADA rooms set aside so we can assign them for members of the convention on a first come first serve basis.
If I can't get the dates because one or more dates are full, should i get them at the higher rate then ask for it to fall in your block?
Our facilities team is very responsive. If you book outside the block or rates there is a possibility we can't move it into our block. Our suggestion is if you run into a date or full error to email facilities so they can assist.
