Just a reminder: For anyone who even thinks they might want to go to the Pittsburgh get together, tomorrow (June 23rd) is the deadline to reserve a room. Honestly, I don't remember if the 23rd is the day they let go of the rooms held by us, or if it is the LAST day we can reserve rooms. SO.........reserve today to be on the safe side!!!
If you are not sure yet, I would call the hotel and ask if you can reserve one and cancel it 24 hrs before the get together if needed. Otherwise, the block of rooms will be opened back up for the general public
This is a bit odd to me...........I just called the hotel and they say there are only 5 rooms that are already reserved in this group block for us. (my family is one of them) There are more than 5 families listed in the roll call, so I'm confused. I also asked if we called to book a room and did not mention the block of rooms, how much would the rate be....and she said $119. Not a huge difference, but still more than with our group rate.
I thought I'd cut and paste the info I originally posted about the Spring Hill Suites hotel reservations, to make it easier for anyone who still needs a reservation to call the hotel directly.
"The contract is signed and accepted by the Spring Hill Suites for our get together.............so that means everyone can start to call the hotel directly to reserve your room. The blocked rooms are in my name (Susan Pace), so just tell them you want to book a room in the block of rooms held by me. The phone number is: 1-412-653-9800.
The rooms are all suites, and have one king sized bed and a sofa sleeper. "
May have been us that was not part of the group, not sure. My reservation was put under my maiden name (because of my Marriott Rewards still being under my maiden name apparently). Remember in my original post saying I had made my reservation I had said the girl was really rude that I talked to. Well, she didn't even tell me the reservation was going to be put under a different name than what I gave her. The girl I spoke with just now said that person is no longer employed by SpringHill because she was rude to people! Huh, imagine that!
I don't think she had us listed as part of the group either.

Apparently the phone lines are down there. We are having serious storms here in the NE. Ohio not affected as badly....since phones still work here. Anyway.....I faxed them out of frustration and they held a room at least for one night. I guess if that is all we can get...it is better than nothing. At least we will see you guys soon.....can't wait!!!!!!!
