Attention Guests! Due to a schedule conflict with our hotel, we will be altering our normal Main Events programming for Thursday only. Nothing else is effected, so don’t fret! We’re packing MER full on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and we have some exciting things planned outside MER for Thurs. Rumor has it our board are working on getting some BIG NAME guests…But you didn’t hear that from me!

When making reservations, there will be a few unfamiliar fields you may not have seen before. This are simply to help to help hotel in planning. Where it asks for arrival time and departure, please put you estimate time, if know. Please note that check in time is after 4pm and check out is before 11am. For company, just put FWA.

Using our room block will save you significant money over booking directly through the Marriott site. No deposit is required at the time of room booking but you should review your reservation and contact the hotel regarding any cancellation requirements to avoid being charged one night stay if not cancelled in time. A valid credit card will be required at time of booking. The hotel may pre-authorize this card a couple days before your stay. Please make sure if your card expires or is cancelled, you update your reservation with a new card. Not having a valid card on file just prior to arrival, may result in cancellation of reservation.

If you have problems making a reservation, please be sure to get the name of the person that you spoke with and contact our Hotel Liaison at


We should have a few different types of suites available. We will post all information as soon as we have it. All people on the list will be emailed to let them know about the process, and more information when we get it.

If you are interested in obtaining a Suite: Contact us and we will put your name on a list and give them on a first come basis. Book a regular room, and if you would like to upgrade once we have the information, they will modify that existing reservation – if not, you still have a regular room.
