The Convention Hotel

The Convention will take place in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Congress Road, Glasgow G3 8QT. The hotel is situated about two miles from Glasgow City Centre and beside the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre. The hotel is familiar to SF fans, having hosted the 2006 Eastercon, Concussion, and was the principal hotel for both the 1995 Worldcon, Intersection, and the 2005 Worldcon, Interaction. In addition it was, of course, the hotel for Satellite 2 in 2009. For further information see https://www.ihg.com/crowneplaza/hotels/gb/en/glasgow/glwcr/hoteldetail/.

Overflow accommodation is available at the Campanile and the Hilton Garden Inn — both across the car park from the Crowne Plaza — and the Marriott, which is just over a mile from the Crowne Plaza.

Update: The Campanile and Crowne Plaza are now full for the core nights, however some rooms may become available later due to cancellations, either from fans now unable to come or from the other recurring contracts the Hotels have to honour. The Crowne Plaza do still have a couple of two room suites available for a premium of an extra £100 per night. There are still plenty of standard rooms available in both the Hilton Garden Inn and the Marriott.
