Expo Icrontic 2013 HOTEL GROUP RATE THREAD

We have secured a very compelling group rate at the historic Corktown Inn, which is 1.6 miles straight down Trumbull (a main road) from ICHQ. It's close enough to be walkable (we suggest daylight hours walking only), or simple enough to bug someone to take a quick car ride (it's about a 5 minute round trip).

The group rate will be $45/night for a single room with a single bed (the beds are doubles; smaller than a queen. Great for couples or really, really good bros... awkwardly small for platonic co-sleepers). There are a very limited number of double rooms (two beds), and those will be $70/night.

If you do choose to participate in the group rate, here are the rules:

BE RESPECTFUL. We had problems with Icrontians embarrassingly getting security called on them for being loud and disrespectful at La Quinta last year. This is not the Icrontic Life™, and is immature and you're a jerk. Detroit may be a huge city but it's also a small town, and we don't want Icrontic getting a bad name.

ABSOLUTELY NO UNDERAGE ROOM DRINKING. Come on, people. It's straight-up illegal, and also is a jerk thing to do.

Use the rooms for what they're for: a personal bed, a quiet retreat, and your own blessed shower. This is a very, very good rate we've secured for downtown Detroit. Take advantage of it!

I cannot secure the group rate unless we can commit to at least 15 rooms. Please notify me in this thread if you're going to commit to one.

    In for a two-bed room. Will definitely be there no later than Wednesday night (could be as early as Monday) and checking out Sunday.

    edit: Will likely not require any sharing of the room.

    Anyone stayed there before? I'm considering it, but the reviews I'm finding are giving me pause.
  • primesuspectprimesuspect Beepin n' Boopin Detroit, MI Icrontian
    I'll put it this way: It's as "nice" as La Quinta, but it's cooler than La Quinta in that quirky, charming Detroit way. It's definitely no Motor City Casino, but it's also not $129 a night.

    It's a $45 hotel in a very prime hotel district. Take that as you will. It's safe, it's quiet, it's clean. Great for sleeping. Not so great for amenities.

    Long as there's no scum in the shower and clean towels it'll be better than that La Quinta.

    If I can get the cash odds are I'll go for a single room.

    That's pretty much what I was looking for.

    Well, I mean, if you're offering...

    Sure I'll take a room. Preferably single.
  • WagsFTWWagsFTW Grand Rapids, MI Icrontian
    It's within walking distance to Le Petit Zinc, also. Fantastic crepes and lattes.

    Well, I could either take the hot sweaty ICHQ attic all snuggled up together with fellow Icrontians, or...

    But of course! It's the best way to get great discounts on such things! Why does this cause you confusion? :D
  • SonorousSonorous F@H Fanatic Virginia Icrontian
    I would like to take advantage of this as well please! The Motel 6 I stayed in for 2011 Expo was less comfortable than a head on collision with a dump truck in a Geo Metro.

    I did. How will payment work? Is it a pay upon check in deal or do we need to pre pay somewhere?

  • QCHQCH Ancient Guru Chicago Area - USA Icrontian
    In for a double... $175 for 5 days is a steal
  • primesuspectprimesuspect Beepin n' Boopin Detroit, MI Icrontian
    You'll pay at the desk
  • ColgereColgere Cincinnati, OH Icrontian
    In for a single; Wed through Sun. morning.
  • GargoyleGargoyle Purveyor of Lincoln Nightmares Illinois Icrontian
    We still need 5 more rooms to secure group rate? Bump.
  • primesuspectprimesuspect Beepin n' Boopin Detroit, MI Icrontian
    Yep. If we don't, it's gonna be everyman for himself :-/
  • MyrmidonMyrmidon Baron von Puttenham California Icrontian
    @Teramona and I could conceivably stay at the hotel if someone else needs a roommate; but we'd like to stay with someone with a car - I DEFINITELY don't want her walking through that area.

    We're signed up for the house right now for cash reasons, but I reckon we can splurge if it means avoiding chaos.
  • GargoyleGargoyle Purveyor of Lincoln Nightmares Illinois Icrontian

    Yep. If we don't, it's gonna be everyman for himself :-/

    This is a big deal. I can't afford anyplace else. If anyone is on the fence, please sign up pronto.
