Reservations for Norwescon 42 are now open!
The DoubleTree by Hilton Seattle Airport has agreed to provide Norwescon members in the Norwescon room block with a flat guest room rate of $132 per night for up to four (4) people. If more than four people occupy a guest room, a daily charge of $10 per additional person will apply. Five (5) people is the maximum occupancy per room. Guaranteed tower room upgrades are $40 extra ($172 per night).
The easiest and fastest way to reserve your room at the Norwescon rate of $132 a night is via this link.
- Please double-check the dates on your reservation! Remember, Norwescon 42 will be Thurday, April 18th through Sunday, April 21st, 2019. You may also reserve your room at the Norwescon rate by calling the hotel directly at 1-206-246-8600 (be sure to give them the “NOR” group code), or through the main hotel website (you must enter the code “NOR” in the “Group Code” field under the “Add Special Rate Codes” link, otherwise no rooms will be shown as available).
- ARRIVING EARLY – STAYING AFTERWARDS? If you need additional nights (arriving early or staying late) please make your reservation and receive a confirmation number. You can then contact the hotel to see if additional nights are available at the group rate.
- GUESTROOM UPGRADES: The group rate of $132 is offered for standard guestrooms with either one king bed or two queen beds. If you wish to confirm a guestroom in the tower, there is an additional fee of $40.00 per room per night.
- GUESTROOM DEPOSIT: You will be charged one night’s room and tax within 7–10 business days of booking your room. If you do not see this charge within 7–10 business days, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need to cancel your reservation, please do so by February 2, 2019 to avoid forfeiting your deposit. For more information on why this policy was enacted, please see this weblog post.
- AT CHECK-IN DEPOSIT: When checking in for Norwescon 42, the hotel will place a $50/night hold on your credit or debit card for incidentals. This hold will be released when you check out (assuming there are no necessary charges incurred), but please be sure to factor this charge into budgeting your weekend.
- ACCESSIBILITY: If you need an accessible room (rather than a full ADA room), please make sure to check the “Accessible” box (located in the “Other Information” box on the “Personal Information” page after you have selected your room type). As there are accessible rooms located throughout the hotel, this option does not guarantee a tower room; please see the “Guestroom Upgrades” item in this section for information on reserving tower rooms.
- PARKING: Norwescon’s group rate includes complimentary parking for one (1) car per guestroom; additional cars are $8.00 per day. Valet parking will be at the hotel’s published rates. Please note that your guestroom confirmation may note the hotel’s standard rate parking rate of $25/day; if you are booked at the Norwescon special group rate the hotel will adjust your parking at check in.
- The hotel has a limited number of Double Queen rooms, so unless you need two beds, we request you reserve a Single King room.
- Reservations for the Norwescon room block will close on March 27, 2019 (unless we sell out earlier).

- The Norwescon 42 Hotel Liaison will begin accepting reservation requests at this page at noon on November 15, 2018.
- Norwescon will determine who gets which suites; our goal is to see that the rooms are used in a way that best serves our members.
- Determination on who gets a suite will be based on the information supplied to Norwescon through the request form.
- Presidential and Parlor Suites are located in the Tower and are for low noise social events. You should not be able to hear the party in the hallway, or on other floors of the tower.
