If you are from out of town and are thinking about coming to WordCamp Atlanta, I suggest finding a place to stay as soon as possible. It may already be too late for our block of rooms at the Sheraton. We released the tickets and they have flown off the shelves, so it is likely that the rooms did as well . We are checking on that today.
Roommate and House Share
If you have a room or need a room or want a roommate, use the comments below to let people know. You can also go on Twitter and ask around. When you add #wcatl to the end of your Tweet, people following the hashtag can see your Tweet even if they are not following you.
You can also check out AirBnB and Judi Knight has a few rooms available at her loft bed and breakfast a mile from our location, Urban Oasis Bed and Breakfast. Another one of our WordCamp peeps, Diana Simons, also has a bed and breakfast, The Miley Bright Farmhouse. It is a bit further away but Diana will be driving in and out each day and you could probably get a ride.
Sheraton Hotel WordCamp Package
Apparently WordCamp weekend is hopping in Downtown Atlanta so hotel rates are going to be sky high. We were able to secure a fantastic deal with the Sheraton Hotel which is close to the Loudermilk Center for $119.00 a night versus the normal $240.00 per night. The caveat is that you must reserve your room before the cutoff deadline of February 19th.
If you get a room and can’t make it the Sheraton will have no problem re-booking your room at the last minute, so they allow cancellations of these reduced price reservations at any time without penalty.
There is a personalized website for registering for a reduced price rooms for WordCamp (Atlanta 2014 on March 13 and 14).
