Hotel booking now open for World FCon and next price increase announced

Hotel booking is now open for World Fantasy Convention 2013 – plus, the next price increase for those wishing to purchase Attending Membership has been announced.

All Hilton Hotels are unable to start selling rooms directly online until 12 months prior to the event, but they have agreed that we can open up our room block early via their Central Reservations telephone number.

Our venue is the Hilton Brighton Metropole Hotel, Kings Road, East Sussex, Brighton, BN1 2FU, United Kingdom. The hotel has more than 330 bedrooms, of varying sizes and configurations. All have 24-hour room service, flat-screen TVs and on-demand movies. A limited number of Deluxe Rooms at the front of the hotel feature sea-views, some with balconies.

All rooms have high-speed Internet service, but you currently have to pay extra for this. However, there is free WiFi in the hotel’s Lounge, Restaurant, Business Centre and Lobby, and the great thing about Brighton is that most of the restaurants and bars also offer free WiFi, as do many other hotels within their public areas.

The dates of the convention are 31 October – 3 November 2013, but you are able to extend your reservation from 29 October through 5 November 2013 at the same rate by quoting our special group code. Attendees who are members of the Hilton HHonors® scheme will earn Points & Miles® for their stay.

Please go to http://www.wfc2013.org/hotelbooking01.html now for full information about our special room rates (which include a full Buffet Breakfast) and how to book. Cancellation of bookings must be made 6 weeks prior to the reserved dates, otherwise charges will be made by hotel.

For those looking for alternative accommodation or who are attending on a limited budget, there are plenty of other hotels in the immediate surroundings. You can find out more information at: www.visitbrighton.com/site/accommodation

After a year, the Attending Membership rate will be increased to £125.00 from 1 October 2012. If you are attending this year’s World Fantasy Convention in Canada, you can join after the Awards Banquet by paying the current rate in CASH (C$165.00 or US$170.000) at our Registration Desk.
