« Who's Coming to KidLitCon? | Main | Registration for the 5th Annual KidLitCon is NOW OPEN! »

Remember when we said the hotel was intimate?

Yeah, we meant it. We have been notified that all of the double queen rooms in the entire hotel have been booked for the Friday night of the conference. There are still plenty of standard single queen and single king bed rooms left, in addition to the king suites which have pull-out queen-sized sofa beds, as pictured to the left. The suite normally goes for $330/night in September, but our group rate drops it to $215. You can peruse the hotel accomodations here.

We understand that some of you will be rooming with other kidlitosphere members whom you may not, under normal circumstances, otherwise know well enough to share a room with, however one thing has become clear after four years of KidLitCon: We are an incredibly open and friendly community. Don’t overthink or worry, jump in! You might just find yourself rooming with your new best friend. 

Those of you who have already registered have discovered that we’re happy to help connect you with a roommate. If you’d prefer to lock in a roommate before registering, please feel free to email us at

Also, please don’t forget that you must call either 206-516-5097 or 800-KIMPTON and say that you are booking with the 2011 Kidlitosphere Conference to reserve at the hotel. Reservations must be made by August 24 to get the group rate.

I just made my reservation, and it looks like all they have left are the suites. They don't have any more standard rooms at the Kidlitcon rate, even with single king or single queen. :( Looking forward to seeing everyone.
