One of the main complaints SHareCon members had in the past was about how hard it was to get from BWI airport to our previous hotels in Laurel, Maryland. For the last few cons, St. Anne, Mama Bird’s stalwart wife and involuntary volunteer, has been our airport shuttle driver. In 2016, she hit the trifecta, having to travel to all three regional airports in the same day. (Hence the title: “St. Anne.”)
So, last year, we tried something different. We contracted with the Homewood Suites by Hilton at BWI, which provides FREE AIRPORT SHUTTLE SERVICE. Attending members loved the new arrangement. So, we’re doing it again. If you’re coming into BWI, the hotel will transport you. We can also use the shuttle to go to the train station, restaurants, or grocery stores within 5 miles of the hotel.
However, if you’re arriving via Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C. or Dulles Airport in Virginia, you’ll have to make arrangements to get to BWI to pick up the hotel shuttle. We always have a few travelers who can only connect through those airports and that’s fine. Just let us know your plans, and we’ll work out the particulars to get you to the con hotel.
Hotel Guest Suites
All hotel guest rooms are suites with fully equipped kitchens, which include refrigerators, microwaves, two-burner stoves, and dishwashers. Suites include separate living and sleeping areas. All rooms have complimentary internet access. Besides the free airport shuttle, there’s an indoor pool and fitness center. The hotel offers free breakfast daily.
There are three types of suites:
King Suites @ $119/night (plus 13% Maryland hotel tax) with a king-size bed plus a pull out sleeper sofa in the living area.
Double Suites @ $129/night (plus 13% Maryland hotel tax) with two double beds plus a pull out sleeper sofa.
Double Bedroom Suites @ $209/night (plus 13% Maryland hotel tax) with two separate bedrooms, one with a king-size bed, and one with two double beds plus a pull-out sleeper sofa.
To get this special rate, we commit to selling a certain number of suites. So, we need you to reserve our suites through the hotel directly, not through third party internet discount offers. This is a standard agreement hotels make when hosting events. If you make reservations through an internet site or 800 number, the con won’t get credit and you won’t get the special con rate. SHareCon can only continue through your support.
If you have problems with the online reservations you can contact Patty Meyers, Director of Sales, at 410-684-6100, or her direct line at 410-577-2386.
Make sure to use the group name- SHare Con
