If you’re thinking about attending Domainer Mardi Gras ’10, the bell is tolling for hotel rooms.
Usually when you miss out on a domain conference’s hotel block, it’s not the end of the world. There are plenty of other hotels in the vicinity where you can stay.
But Domainer Mardi Gras is different — and that’s why you need to reserve your room by Thursday, January 21. If you don’t book by Thursday, here’s what’s going to happen:
1. Any rooms from Domainer Mardi Gras’ block will be given back to the New Orleans Marriott.
2. The New Orleans Marriott has sold out of regular rooms for the dates of the event, so the rooms given back will instantly sell out.
3. Good luck finding another hotel room in New Orleans during Mardi Gras, especially on Canal Street.
Last year a number of people tried to make last minute reservations for the trip and had difficulty finding a room.
So even if you’re not sure if you’ll be making the trip, reserve your room by Thursday (you can cancel later if necessary). Information on the event is at DomainerMardiGras.com, and the hotel link is here.
