NEAR-Fest XXIX Special Hotel Room Rate
« on: December 29, 2009, 01:43:13 PM »
Hotel arrangements for 2021 have not been negotiated but here is what they have been in the past.  Please visit this page early in 2021 for current information.

The Holiday Inn Express, Manchester NH, 1298 South Porter Street, Manchester NH (603) 669-6800 is offering a great room rate for us of $99.99 a night plus 8% NH State tax.

The Holiday Inn Express is conveniently located right off I-293 at South Willow Street just across from the Mall of New Hampshire. and just over 15 minutes to the fairgrounds.  The hotel features a complimentary hot breakfast buffet, comfortable accommodations, a business center, indoor pool, hot tub and fitness center.  Each of the clean, comfortable rooms include a flat screen tv, wireless internet, refrigerator, microwave and Keurig coffee maker. 


The rate PER NIGHT for two adults in effect from Thursday, April 30th, through Sunday, May 2nd, 2020 is going to be $ 00 (smoking rooms are $10 a night additional) plus 9% NH Meals & Services tax.  The Super 8 Motel is located at 2301 Brown Avenue, Manchester NH (603) 623-0883 which is about 15 miles from the ‘Fester.  Cots for additional guests are $10.00 extra (regardless of the age of the person sleeping in it) and this is not negotiable so don't even ask the desk clerk to "waive" it.,+Manchester,+NH+03103,+USA&sa=X&oi=map&ct=image

A block of only 48 rooms are normally held for NEAR-Fest attendees but this time the number of rooms allocated to us will be less because this is their “High Season”.  Consequently you are well advised to MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS EARLY (like right now) to avoid disappointment.  You may start booking  your rooms immediately.  However,  you MUST make your reservation by 4 PM, Wednesday, October 9ths, 2019.  Reservations made AFTER that time and date will NOT be eligible for the special rate, and you WILL pay more.  No exceptions.  Don’t say you weren’t warned.

The hotel has stipulated that you must confirm your reservation with a credit card and the name on the reservation must match the name on the credit card.  You may cancel your reservation without penalty more than 48 hours in advance but if you want to beg off less than 48 hours you will be responsible for the cost of your entire reservation unless the hotel is able to resell the room.  In this case you will be charged a $25.00 cancellation fee.  There are no exceptions.  You must mention the NEAR-Fest block rate when you make your reservation or you won’t get the deal.  Finally, you must pay for your total stay IN FULL when you check in. The hotel wants me to advise you that no checks of any kind will be accepted.

If the person who answers the phone doesn’t know what the heck you are talking about ask for Maria.  She is the Manager!  Please be sure to thank her for the great rate. For the Fall hamfest you don’t want to know what a room costs anywhere else at the height of leaf-peeping season.

Amenities include: 6am-10am continental breakfast, High-speed wireless internet, 24 hour wake-up service, Cable TV (includes HBO and HBO2), Complementary USA Today.



See you all at the ‘Fester!
