I just edited this for next year - figured I'd post it here for now since we don't have a Carlisle 2012
section yet. Our group rate is already loaded in the Radisson reservation system, but when I called the first time they couldn't find it - called back an hour later, spoke with a different agent, and she had no trouble locating it <shrugs>.
For the most part, nobody complains about the Radisson, so for 2012, we again return to the Radisson in Camp Hill PA (http://www.radisson.com/camphillpa
), just outside of Harrisburg.
Discounted room rates are un-changed from last year as follows:
$109 Single or Double
To book a room at the group rate, you must specify that you are with the Merkur Club of America. Reservations must be called in using either of the following numbers:
1.800.333.3333 World-wide Reservations
(Note: There is no on-line option to make a reservation at the group-rate)
If the rep on the reservation line has any trouble finding our group rate, the group code is: 1205MERKUR
The typical Friday arrival, Sunday morning departure would involve a 2-night reservation of June 1 and 2 (departing Sunday morning, June 3rd). You may arrive a day early or stay a day late at the group rate. Increasingly, many of us arrive on Thursday (May 31), and get a full day at the show on Friday.
I just made my reservation via the 800#, and had my confirmation details e-mailed within 5 minutes. Last year the hotel sold out of rooms and some people had to stay at an alternate property. As most of you know, Carlisle isn't Carlisle unless you hang out at the hotel, so if you plan to be there (and why wouldn't you?), make your reservation now.
