NecronomiCon Venue: The Providence Biltmore & Others

17 Aug , 2012  

Important Announcement:

Please secure your lodging for the convention SOON.

Rooms are filling up fast!

After selling out the Biltmore (our primary event venue for panels, talks, and vendors) in near-record time, our room block at the Hotel Providence (our center for more panels and talks, as well as gaming) is also now booked up. Rooms are still available at the Omni Hotel, just adjacent to the Biltmore, in the center of the city. The Omni has a mix of both singles and doubles for $139 plus tax. Below, you’ll find the relevant reservations info —

Omni Hotel: NECRONOMICON RESERVATIONS 
Their reservations number: 800-843-6664

If you’ve got a room at the Hotel Providence, but need to modify your stay, please call their direct reservations phone number: 401.861.8000

For both hotels, please be sure to ask for your room for the Lovecraft Convention, August 22-25. Remember that there are lots of rooms available just prior and after the main convention dates, so you can plan a less rushed trip.

IF you have ANY issues with these hotels, and their reservations offices, please let us know, and we will do our very best to rectify the problem via our channels.

You’ll be in Providence after all – we want you to have a few seconds to breath in the eldritch air.

For the Biltmore, for questions on availability, or to extend your stay, please call 401.421.0700 and ask for reservations and be sure to request the rate for the “LOVECRAFT FESTIVAL” (sorry, the mere mention of the Dread Book, understandably, sends shivers down the spines of mere mortal reservation desk clerks!). Additionally, you may book online here: LOVECRAFT FESTIVAL

We are particularly proud of the fact that we’re utilizing this historic hotel as the heart of the convention, because it was one of Lovecraft’s favorite buildings in Providence:

“Here in Providence the three tallest buildings are all Georgian in pattern, especially the sumptuous Biltmore hotel, which is 18th century in every essential outline and decoration.”

–HPL, From a letter to Frank Belknap Long, 26 January 1924

NOTE: Admission tickets / passes to the convention (including many associated activities and discounts) are available elsewhere on this site.
