Discounted hotel rooms gone

The OryCon29 rate is no longer available at the Marriott. We completely used up our allocated block, which is good in that it makes the hotel happy with us, but bad in that it means some attendees may not get the discounted rate.

Check with Patty and Arthur to see if someone has released a reservation, but at this late date you may want to simply make alternative plans.

University Place (the hotel Portland State bought) has rooms available for our convention attendees. The University Place Hotel & Conference Center is located on the southwest corner of SW 4th Avenue & Lincoln Street. Phone: (503) 221-0140

The hotel will meet our $106 rate at the Marriott, and their parking is $12/night. Be sure to mention OryCon.

Don't need your reservation anymore?

Again, email Patty and Arthur instead of contacting the hotel. If you cancel that reservation through the hotel, that room rate is gone. If we instead transfer it to somebody else's name, we keep the room rate. Yes it's a labor intensive process but it does help minimize the cost of hotel rooms for latecomers.


Per hotel rules -- no signage is to be placed in any public space with in the hotel, elevators, guest room doors, or hallways on guest room floors, except in designated areas. Signage in Meeting rooms can be hung by hotel staff or by the use of low tack painters tape on papered walls. No push pins, nails, duct tape, or high tack tape is permitted. Damage to walls will be the responsibility of the group. Walls in the ballroom that are moveable air walls are magnetic and signs can be hung using magnets. The air walls on lobby level and 3rd floor are cloth and T-pins or Velcro can be used.

Bulletin boards will be provided on LL2, LL1, Lobby, 3rd & 4th floor. Please note that any items found in unauthorized places will be removed and discarded by hotel staff.
