Reserve your room at 972-980-8877.

Make reservations: Our room block for FenCon VI in the Crowne Plaza is now closed and only a few rooms are still available in the entire hotel! If you can make a standard (not pre-paid) reservation, we can still get you the great FenCon rate of just $92 per night for one to four guests in a king or double standard room. The executive suites are already sold out. Call 972-980-8877 and use code FNC when making your reservation. If they don't offer you the rate, make the reservation anyway and e-mail hotel@fencon.org with your reservation info and we can fix it. The hotel will sell out this year!

Ah, the atmosphere: The hotel is 100% smoke-free, including in guest rooms.

FenCon will take place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel® North Dallas/Addison. This centrally-located hotel is on Midway Road, just north of I-635/LBJ, and in the heart of the Addison restaurant and entertainment district. With newly-updated guest rooms and suites, larger convention facilities, and all the amenities at reasonable prices, we're thrilled to return to this great location. Plus, they offer a complimentary scheduled shuttle to and from locations within a three mile radius of the hotel.

"How do I book a room at the FenCon rate?"

When reserving your room, you must use code FNC to get the special FenCon rate. We have negotiated a rate of just $92 per night for one to four guests in a king or double standard room and just $112 per night for one to four guests in an "executive suite" room. (Please note, as of August 22, 2009, all of the suites at this rate are sold out.) These rates do not include the applicable city and state taxes. IMPORTANT: The FenCon room block and rate guarantee ends on August 30th.

"How do I get to the hotel?"

The Crowne Plaza offers a customizable map and driving directions on their corporate website. If you're flying in, while the Crowne Plaza does not offer a free shuttle there are several options available. SuperShuttle offers convenient service for just $18 each way per person from both D/FW and Love Field. Yellow Checker Shuttle offers shared service for $19 each way per person from both D/FW and Love Field. They also offer exclusive service that would be more economical for groups of 4-10 persons.

Google Maps is the best! True that! Double True!

"Can my group throw a room party?"

We'd love to have you or your group throw a party at FenCon VI but we need to have you register with us first. There's a simple form to fill out that lets you know the rules and lets us know you know the rules. Just e-mail the FenCon hotel liaison at hotel@fencon.org for all the details. Thanks!

"Can we get a suite for our room party?"

There are a limited number of executive suites available each night of FenCon and at just $112 per night they're sure to sell out quickly. All our suites for 2009 are officially sold out. E-mail the FenCon hotel liaison at hotel@fencon.org for details on reserving a suite for 2010 or to see if there's been a cancellation for this year.

"I live locally, why should I stay at the hotel?"

  • You are supporting the convention. We need to reach a certain number of 'room nights' to keep the cost of the convention space as low as possible.
  • It's safer. You don't have to worry about driving home after a long day at the con.
  • You have a place to crash during the day, a place to change outfits, and a place to store your many purchases from the dealers room.
