Potlatch 17 Hotel News

If you plan to attend Potlatch 17 and you have not yet made your hotel reservations, please do so right away. The hotel is very close to full on Friday night, with somewhat more room on Saturday and Sunday nights.

Here are directions on making your reservation. We've been saying that you might encounter difficulty in making your reservation; let me say that although I love our hotel, I'd be surprised if you didn't encounter difficulty in making your reservation, so be prepared to be patient in getting through.

If you are unable to get a reservation at the convention rate either through the web site or by calling the hotel directly, please send email to Suzle (hotel @ potlatch-sf . org) or me (chair @ potlatch-sf . org) (yes, I've munged the addresses; I know you can un-munge them).

We want to see you at Potlatch 17, and we want you to have places to sleep. Suzle is working on an overflow hotel within walking distance, about 4 or 5 blocks away. We haven't needed an overflow hotel for a Seattle Potlatch before.

(Potlatch 17, February 29 through March 2, 2008, Hotel Deca, 4507 Brooklyn Avenue NE, Seattle, Washington; more Potlatch info here.)
