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

Whether reserving online or on the phone, you must use FenCon group code FVN to get the special FenCon rate. We have negotiated rates of just $98 for one to four guests in a king or double standard room and $119 for a limited number of "executive king" suites. These rates do not include the applicable city and state taxes.

"How do I get to the hotel?"

The Crowne Plaza offers a customizable map and driving directions on their official website. If you're flying in, the Crowne Plaza does not offer a free shuttle but there are several options available. SuperShuttle offers convenient service for about $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. Both services also offer deals that would be more economical for groups of 5 or more.


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 IX 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 they're sure to sell out quickly. E-mail the FenCon hotel liaison at hotel@fencon.org for further details.

"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.
