Seeking crash space

I am looking for space in someone's room, preferable with 3 to 4 people total in the room.  I'm F, 46, quiet, non-smoker, happy to sleep on the floor.  I tend to stay awake as long as there are parties, and sleep in until 9 or 10.  My main interests in Boskone are the science panels and socializing.

roommate wanted

I have a double reserved at the Westin for 2 nights of the con (Fri and Sat) and am looking for a roommate. My gmail address is my lj name.

Boskone Overflow Room Block

BOSKONE HOTEL UPDATE: We have added an overflow block at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel, which is about a quarter mile from the Westin, along D St. The rooms are available for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights, at a rate of $199/night.

The rooms can be booked online, at https://resweb.passkey.com/go/BoskoneOverflowRoomBlock

You can also call Renaissance Reservations, at 1-877-901-6632, and ask for the Boskone Overflow Room Block. The room block will only be available until the end of the business day on Friday, January 30.

As always, if there are problems with these reservations, please email hotel@boskone.org, and we will attempt to help you.

Boskone Hotel News

  • our block is full and we currently have no rooms available at our rate.

  • if someone has a room and wants to cancel it, please write to hotel@boskone.org before doing so. If we know of someone that needs a room, we can then transfer that room to them.

  • if someone wants a room and can't find one at our rate on our site in either non-party or party blocks, again, write to hotel@boskone.org, to tell us, and if someone cancels we may be able to transfer them.

  • we are looking at overflow, probably at the Renaissance. Watch this space, as we hope to know more by early to mid next week.
