Overflow hotels – See the Hotel and Lodging part of the website for these hotels.

Party rooms

Party rooms, sometimes called party suites by the long-time conference goers are community hospitality spaces. They are usually paid for by a group of people around either a tradition or a commonality of interest. We have a very limited number of spaces available.

This is not about having a party in your room, nor about regular hotel rooms. Please see the hotel and lodging pages elsewhere on this site for more about that.

The process for requesting a party room is to email Glenn Turner glenn@ancientways.com with the name of your group, the purpose of your room and a short description(see past program books, posted in the FAQ section for examples). She will contact you at the appropriate time with more details and if you have been accepted. If you have a preference for the floor or other details you would like considered, please include those in the same email.

Note: Please do NOT contact anyone else about party rooms. Glenn is the sole decider. Reaching out on facebooks to the group or to the hotel liaison, the hotel itself, programming, gryphons, dealers, CAT, Green Room or Logistics just annoys them and delays you getting to the right person. None of them can help you. Glenn can be slow to respond. Please be patient. If you have not heard from her in 30 days then politely email again.
