Hotel information

The phone number for reservations is 800 213 6308. Call and tell them you're with the Callahan Group or Callahan Family Reunion at the Best Western on Aurora. A single is $84 a night, and a double is $92. You can reserve a room with a credit card and then pay cash at the desk without the card actually being charged. A map to the hotel can be found at Jezebel's website (thanks, Jez!).

Continental breakfast is included in the price of the room. It's usually served fairly early, but since we're mostly late risers, the hotel has agreed to serve it later for us, most likely around 10 a.m. Each room has its own coffeepot, and if you can't find good coffee in Seattle, you get no sympathy from me!

Non-smoking consuite equivalent is Rose's room; smoking consuite equivalent is Jezebel's room (ask for Rose Platt and Pat Kight, respectively).

Travel information

If you're planning to fly to Seattle, email the Travel Director (ElephantChild) first with your estimated travel dates and then with specific times once you have your reservations made. If you're planning to drive, email the Driving Director (HGEllison) and state when/whether you'll be available to help carpool to and from the airport and how many passengers you can handle.

Seattle information
