Some of you may know nothing whatsoever about AC's hotels. Plus, it seems every year there's a new hotel. So, a thread with a little about the hotels.

Now, if you want REVIEWS of the hotels, that gets really complicated and subjective- we've seen 2 different posters post back-to-back with opposite opinions about the same feature of the same hotel. If you really want them, though, you can look up any of these hotels with TripAdvisor or Yelp or something else.

So, links to the official websites with information about the hotels. Read AC's hotel page, and supplement the information with their official websites (the address, driving directions, in-hotel restaurant, etc.)

Keep in mind these links are for information purposes only.

Other than room status and pricing, here's what AC's hotel page had on each site.
=======================================

The Westin Convention Center Hotel

Located just across the street from the Convention Center and easily accessible in any weather, this is Anthrocon's flagship hotel.

The Doubletree Pittsburgh City Center

Located a few blocks from the Convention Center, the sleek Doubletree Hotel is a leisurely 5-6 minute walk away. For those on a budget, it features a 7-11 store right in the lobby.

The Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel

Located a few blocks from the Convention Center, this is one of the more luxurious hotels in the downtown area.

The Omni William Penn Hotel

Located a few blocks from the Convention Center, the breathtakingly luxurious Omni William Penn is a leisurely 5-6 minute walk away. This grand hotel is world-famous for its opulence and for the superior comfort of its rooms.

The Marriott Pittsburgh City Center

Located across the street from the Doubletree (about 5 blocks away), this hotel has electronic connections in every room for your gaming system and other portable entertainments.

The Wyndham Grand Hotel

This is our furthest hotel, but it is conveniently accessible by Anthrocon's downtown shuttle service. It is also one of the quietest, and has some of the fastest elevators in town!

The Drury Plaza Pittsburgh Downtown

Located on Grant St just around the corner from the Westin, The Drury is a historic renovation of the Federal Reserve Bank building. Anthrocon guests will enjoy free wifi, free hot breakfast, free 5:30 Kickback (hot food and drinks!) and more. NOTE: SPACE HERE IS VERY LIMITED!

Homewood Suites Pittsburgh on Smallman

All of the rooms in our block are King Studio Suites. They are fully equipped with a full kitchen, but you don't need to dirty the dishes; a hot breakfast is included in the rate! Conveniently accessible by Anthrocon's downtown shuttle service.

The Courtyard Downtown Pittsburgh

Located just across the street from the Convention Center (but with no access without going outdoors), the Courtyard Downtown Pittsburgh is just as close as the Westin. NOTE: SPACE HERE IS VERY LIMITED!

The Hampton Inn & Suites Pittsburgh

Located a few blocks from the Convention Center, this is the only hotel in the Golden Triangle whose room rate includes parking, internet access and daily breakfast.
