Hotel News Update – 2/2/15

We met with the team at the North Baltimore Plaza Hotel a couple of weeks ago and have news! The owners have decided to join the Radisson hotel network and the hotel will become the Radisson Baltimore North at the end of February.

The good news for us is that we will be able to take advantage of some of the hotel refurbishments that have been going on:
-The sleeping rooms on the 1st and 2nd floor that still needed to be remodeled have been completed.
-The plumbing has been updated and the roof re-done. This should help with hot water availability and temperature control in the hotel.
-The kitchen has been updated with new stoves, convection ovens and refrigerator/freezers, and the dividing wall between the bar area and restaurant seating in the Northern Lights has been removed to add more tables. The kitchen and restaurant changes should help with food service efficiency. The hotel is providing us information on menus and food service hours soon and we will post that information when it is available and confirmed. We can confirm that the food concession stand is returning and will again have late Saturday night hours to feed our post-Masquerade munchies.

More information to come.

Local Conventions = Small Business

You may not realize but supporting Farpoint Convention and other local conventions contributes to the area economy! Our members are purchasing food, renting hotel rooms and buying merchandise from our dealers during the convention. Farpoint as a business entity is renting exhibit space and hotel rooms, purchasing supplies and services, and even paying our taxes to the local government. Your choice to attend Farpoint keeps our unique convention going from one year to the next and helps the small businesses that support Farpoint Convention’s infrastructure.
