Pittsburgh Comicon Changing Hotel Plans

Press Release:

The 2009 Comicon will be without our usual host hotel. The Radisson (soon to be the Doubletree) which was to bePittsburgh Comicon completed September 1st is now not opening until closer to December. Although inconvenient, we are forging ahead using other local hotels. We will be booking the majority of our guests and staff in The Hampton Inn and The Holiday Inn, but I have listed other hotels in the area below. If you get on our website under Show Info,
http://www.pittsburghcomicon.com/showinfo.html the hotels are all listed with their amenities and rate information. (please note the rate information is the best we can currently provide but is subject to change).

All the hotels listed will be serviced by the Convention Bureau’s Shuttle which will be taking people back and forth from the Hotels to the Convention Center all weekend long. We will also have transportation in place for our guests to get them from the hotel to the Convention Center. We are sorry about the inconvenience and we look forward to returning to the Doubletree (formerly the Radisson) in 2010.
