Ladies and Gentlemen, the DHN Spaghetti Dancers.

Update on hotel discounts! The discount rates we had for the Courtyard by Marriott through the [email protected] mailing list flew off the shelves. From now on, we’re going to send out new hotel information in email updates, making them very much first come, first served. Unfortunately, right this moment, we don’t have any more to send. However, here’s what we know about the hotels we’re talking to:
  • Holiday Inn Secaucus – Meadowlands, right down the street from the venue, is currently offering us $129/night for double rooms.
  • Holiday Inn Hasbrouck Heights, which is seven miles away, but offers free shuttles to and from the venue, is also offering $129/night for double rooms.
  • A few other hotels are offering in rates in the range of $149-169 for various kinds of rooms, with mostly king suites (usually meaning a king bed and a sofa bed).

Just wanted to send out what we know right now, so you can make your travel plans accordingly. We’ll finalize those deals and send out booking information as soon as we can.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email [email protected]

Thanks, and I hope to see you at BronyCon!
