The Notacon 9 room block is officially closed.  HOWEVER, there may still be rooms available!  Please call the hotel directly (216-658-6400) to inquire about availability. Please mention that you would like your rooms to be considered part of the Notacon room block.

Reserve your room online. You can also call 1-877-STAY HGI and use booking code NOTA.

The Hilton Garden Inn has been kind enough to provide us with an competitive rate of $109 per night. The conference rate extends from April 10 through April 18, 2012. Overnight parking is $8/car with Daily Event Parking for $2/car.

Using Notacon’s booking code entitles you to a discounted room rate, and helps defray our space costs. If you are concerned about noise issues, please book under the code, but notify the hotel that you would like your room to be placed outside of the room block floors. Both smoking and non-smoking rooms are available in single and double occupancy.


Logistics and Travel

Public Transportation:

Getting to the venue from the airport via public transit is a quick, relatively painless and cheap way to avoid paying a high cab fare.  

Google Maps directions:

  • Take the Red Line (light rail) from the airport to Tower City.  
  • Go up the escalators/stairs and exit out the rear of Tower City / Terminal Tower
  • Hoof it south on Huron, then south/east on Ontario
  • Walk east on Carnegie until you get to the hotel
  • Take the Red Line (light rail) from the airport to Tower City as per the previous directions
  • Go up the escalators/stairs and exit out the FRONT of Tower City / Terminal Tower at the corner of S. Roadway and W. Roadway.
  • Walk a 2 blocks across Public Square to the bus stop near Public Square and Ontario. it will be on the north and west part of the intersection
  • Take the 14 bus to the stop right in front of the hotel on Carnegie before you get to East 9th.  st.  The stop is essentially near where E. 11th would be if there were an E. 11th.  There will be a sushi house nearby, too.

Feel free to check out RTA’s website, or your favorite mapping site.

Parking:

Hilton Garden Inn Cleveland Downtown has a surface parking lot for the hotel and the convention center. Overnight parking is $8/car with Daily Event Parking for $2/car. There are also many public parking lots in the area. There may be other lots nearby that offer cheaper rates, check ahead.

Check rates before parking, while the Cleveland Indians are playing away games, due to the week long Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremonies taking place in Cleveland, many lots may have “special event” pricing.
