NO ROOM AT THE INN?
In yesterdays blog, I discussed the Radisson Hotel where our upcoming 2011 OHA Convention will be held, provided a description of the rooms and the various amenities offered as well as the costs associated with staying where the conference will be held. No one hotel in Sudbury, however, can offer enough rooms for all of our OHA delegates so we have blocked rooms at four other hotels in downtown Sudbury that are in close proximity to the Radisson.
Our committee is hoping that delegates will be able to park their vehicles for the weekend when they arrive at these other hotels and simply walk over to the Radisson to prevent parking headaches and, of course, getting lost. We will be providing volunteers who are acquainted with downtown Sudbury to guide delegates over Thursday evening for registration and Friday morning for the first Plenary session so they become familiar with the easiest and shortest route to the Radisson from these hotels.
The Quality Inn, Days Inn, the Howard Johnson Plaza and the Best Western have rooms blocked for OHA Convention attendees until approximately June 14, 2011. At such time, any of these rooms which have not been booked will be released back into inventory for the general public.
