In July 2011, Westercon site selection voters rejected a Portland bid in favor of a rival bid for (*wink* *wink*) Granzella’s Inn in the olive country of California. (See John Hertz’ post “Wild, Wild Westercon”.)
Nine months later the winking is over. The 2013 Westercon really will be held in Sacramento at the Hilton Arden West. Room rates are $109 per night, parking is free.
The facility hosted Eclecticon in the early 1990s, reports Kevin Standlee. And it’s in the same fanhistoric neighborhood as the site of Sacramento’s two previous Westercons, the (now-renamed ) Red Lion.
