NECRONOMICON-PROVIDENCE 2017 – Lodging
We’re very happy to offer special rates at two of the very best hotels in Providence, our two primary convention venues – the historic Providence Biltmore, and the upscale Omni right next door in central downtown Providence.
**Please note that the Biltmore and Omni hotels, our Twin Pillars of Convention Weirdness, are both central sites for most of the core programming.**
For reservations at the OMNI HOTEL (1 W Exchange St, 02903), please ring their central reservation number – 800-THE-OMNI (or 800-843-6664 – and use the meeting name “NecronomiCon Providence 2017” – or use their online reservation link: NecronomiCon Providence. Standard rooms with two beds are available at $159/night plus applicable taxes. We’ll also have an online reservation link up shortly, for as long as these rooms last.
Sold Out! For reservations at the PROVIDENCE BILTMORE (11 Dorrance St, 02903), please ring their reservation number – 800-294-7709, or their online direct reservation link: NecronomiCon Providence. Our convention rates at the Biltmore are $139 plus tax / night for a single King bed, and $159 plus tax / night for a two bed suite – while they last! Please be sure to use the meeting name “Necronomicon-Prov” for this reservation – the abbreviation “necron” seems to suffice for the coupon code online, too. There have been some issues with the link – if you have any, try to refresh the reservations page first and, if that doesn’t work, just give them a call.
NOTE: The Biltmore is LONG SOLD OUT!
We will soon post links to other hotels within short walking distance of convention venues.
Another great option is THE DEAN (122 Fountain St, 02903), a cozy-simple boutique hotel just a couple blocks away. Though we don’t have a group arrangement here, The Dean offers rooms at moderate prices, and has a great German beer bar, a swanky cocktail bar, and a very popular underground karaoke bar.
In addition to these options, we also recommend attendees consider using online resources such as AirBnB to find comfortable and convenient apartment arrangements for their stay during the convention.
“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
