Thursday, July 11, 2013
SAN ANTONIO, Texas – LoneStarCon 3, the 71st World Science Fiction Convention (“Worldcon”), is pleased to announce that because bookings in our original hotels are now almost fully allocated, we have secured additional room capacity at the Hilton Palacio del Rio. This hotel is located across the street from the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, only a half block walk from the main entrance. The $154 price for single/double occupancy for this hotel is the same as the convention’s original room blocks at the Marriott Rivercenter and Marriott Riverwalk, with the added benefit of free wireless Internet access in the guest rooms.
Although the original Marriott room blocks will soon be fully allocated, a small number of rooms might become available from time to time from members who cancel existing reservations. With over 1300 rooms already booked by convention members, San Antonio’s Riverwalk area is expected to be buzzing when the Worldcon arrives in town on August 29.
