"How do I get to the hotel?"

The Crowne Plaza offers a customizable map and driving directions on their corporate website. If you're flying in, while the Crowne Plaza does not offer a free shuttle there are several options available. SuperShuttle offers convenient service for just $18 each way per person from both D/FW and Love Field. Yellow Checker Shuttle offers shared service for $19 each way per person from both D/FW and Love Field. They also offer exclusive service that would be more economical for groups of 4-10 persons.

Google Maps is the best! True that! Double True!

"I live locally, why should I stay at the hotel?"

  • You are supporting the convention. We need to reach a certain number of 'room nights' to keep the cost of the convention space as low as possible.
  • It's safer. You don't have to worry about driving home after a long day at the con.
  • You have a place to crash during the day, a place to change outfits, and a place to store your many purchases from the dealers room.
