KWDS - Logding Options

Poster: SCAVard@aol.com

Good afternoon all:

For those planning to attend the Known World Dance Symposium outside of St. 
Louis on 21-23 May, here are some logding options.

The KWDS folks have reserved a block of rooms at the nearest hotel:

Hi-Way House Motor Inn, 3023 Godfrey Rd, Godfrey IL 62035. (618) 466-6676

Rooms are $49.95/night, mention the "SCA" to get the rate. I do not know what 
amenieties are offered here, though a hot tub to soak in after a day of 
dancing would be very welcome.  Alas, I cannot state for certain that the 
Hi-Way House offers anything more than a clean bed and a door that locks, 
though it probably does not, as they say, "suck".  The hotel appears to be 
about 1 mile from the event site.

In the town adjacent to Godfrey, there are a few hotels which represent 
"known quantities", each of which appear to be less than 4-5 miles from the 
site.  However, each of them are more expensive.  (Note that Alton is right 
on the Mississippi River, adjacent to a Riverboat Casino.  Thus, the hotels 
seem to be full most of the time.  I could not book any rooms at these 
properties via the web or their corporate 800 numbers.  I had to contact the 
properties directly to get their rates, and none could guarantee availability 
without actually booking a room.)

Super 8 Motel, 1800 Homer Adams Parkway, Alton IL, (618) 465-8885.  $53.00 / 
night (availability NOT confirmed). Amenieties: Donuts/Coffee, RV/Truck 
parking (for all you 18-wheelers!)

Days Inn (formerly Ramada Inn), 1900 Homer Adams Parkway, Alton IL, (618) 
463-0800.  $58.95 / night.  ($52.70 with AAA or AARP discount).  Amenieties: 
Indoor Pool, Hot Tub, "Fun Dome", Restaurant on premises

Holiday Inn Alton, 3800 Homer Adams Parkway, Alton IL, (618) 462-1220.  
$80.50 / night (room only) OR $85.50 / night (Bed & Breakfast package, 
includes two $6 breakfast vouchers per night).  Amenieties: Pool (Indoor), 
Whirlpool/Sauna, "Holidome", Restaurants and Lounges on premises

If you're willing to live "on the edge", you might be able to get a room at 
the Holiday Inn for much less than $80.  The Holiday Inn website 
(www.holiday-inn.com) publishes last-minute weekend rates ("Holideals") 
there.  On Tuesday, they posted weekend rates of $50.70 for the Alton 
property this weekend, but there are NO guarantees that they'll post a 
similar rate the week of KWDS.

In service,
