Doubletree Hotel Room bookings – The first block of 100 rooms will open on October 27, another block on November 27 and possibly a few later. At that time Doubletree reservations for hotel rooms will hopefully go through the Doubletree booking system.  (Rooms get booked very quickly.) The hotel is contracted to have blacked out all rooms this whole long weekend for only our attendees to reserve. Any Doubletree hotel rooms reserved before that time will be void. No more than one room reservation per person will be allowed. See link here for detailed information and any updates.

For Special-Needs rooms, please contact special-needs@pantheacon.com, starting in September. We will have details for making an application soon. Special-needs rooms are for families with small children and physically challenged people. (We reserve the right to jury this area.) DEADLINE for consideration  in this block is Sept 30. If you missed the deadline you can still write in, but you are on a waiting list. There is no guarantee you will get a room that best fits your needs.

Requests for Hospitality rooms This block is now closed to new submissions.


Overflow hotels – See the Hotel and Lodging part of the website for these hotels. Our main overflow hotel is the Fairfield Inn San Jose Airport. (They have free parking and free breakfast with nearby inexpensive restaurants.)
