Special Room Blocking Requests

If you want your room blocked near someone else, please have that noted in the comments for your reservation and then email our hotel liaison Dave Gallaher at with your reservation number(s) and the rooms you want blocked together.

Similarly, if you want a room on our party floor (the 2nd floor, in the wing near our Hospitality Suite), note it in the comments for your reservation, and email with your request.


There are (a very few) parlor suites and one presidential suite available at the DoubleTree at our negotiated rate of $155. Most (not all) suites have a single king-size bed in the bedroom and a sofa bed in the parlor, with a second connecting bedroom available for the cost of the additional room.

All of the suites are on the 9th and 10th (concierge) floors which have restricted access; in particular, there are no suites on the party floor.

The rooms at the DoubleTree are quite large; you may find a pair of connecting guest rooms a reasonable alternative to a suite.

The reservations system does not properly reflect our negotiated suite rate: if you want to reserve a suite, email Dave Gallaher at with your request; and he will handle them on a first-come, first-served basis.
