Reservations can begin tomorrow. There will be 2 different blocks. One for the Reatta Division of the Buick Club and one for the Buick Car Club in General. The Reatta Division will have our original block of 40 rooms offered. The additional block of 10-15 rooms will be for anyone calling to book but that rate will be at $139. We can not offer more than the 40 rooms at the $119 rate. Upgrades will be available in both blocks for a higher rate. Please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Thanks,

 Vickie

FAIRFIELD INN:

I talked with Vickie Fairbairn at the Fairfield Inn and the problem for the Saturday night reservations is caused by their system. Technology is a wonderful thing, until it doesn’t work the way you want or expect it to work. And then we yearn for a simpler time!

 

Reservations for Tuesday through Friday nights opened as planned. She was not aware that reservations for Saturday night will not open until Monday (Aug 17) due to limitations with the reservation system they use. She has instructed her front desk to put all BCA reservation calls through to her. She is keeping a list of reservations and will add Saturday night to their block (for those who want it) at the group rate of $139 as soon as she is able.

 

She is frustrated by the situation and apologetic, but doing everything she can to make sure the BCA guests are being taken care of.

I've tried to call Vickie for 4 days straight all day and all I get is "I'm either away from my desk or on another line.  Please leave a message".

 

Update Monday, 8/17/15:  Vickie returned my call this morning and was so kind to book me in as a "Reatta" member (which is what I wanted) Wed 6/27 - Sat 7/31.  Thank you Vickie.  She mentioned she had a lot of additional calls to make to accommodate other BCA members.

And Up date on the Fairfield Inn:

  1. Is the BCA block sold out? Not as of this morning. There were three rooms left, but Vickie is checking to see if more rooms can be added. Will update you as soon as we can.  Kristi
  2. There IS a Reatta block separate from the BCA block and that is being handled and coordinated by the Reatta Club.  This is no different than the 100th Anniversary celebration in Flint, when the Reatta Club hosted their group at the Wyndham.

The Reatta Block at the Fairfield Inn is being held for-well-The Reatta Club.

 

There WERE a few rooms that NON-Reatta BCA members were able to reserve and they are well-now booked and gone.

 

There are plenty of other Hotels to book on the list and in the area.

    We checked availability at all of the hotels and the Fairfield Inn, Hilton Garden Inn Airport, Residence Inn Airport and Renaissance are the only ones on the list that are sold out or nearly sold out at this time. We are not able to get additional rooms at either the Fairfield or Residence Inn, but are trying to get more rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn and Renaissance.

     

    All of the other hotels on the list, with rates starting at $99, are available. The hotels with the largest blocks include the Best Western Plus Lehigh Valley Hotel, the two Holiday Inn properties and the Wingate by Wyndham.

     

    We hope this helps!

Jeff, instead of multiple posts of which hotels are Sold Out/Few Rooms Left etc, IE posts 38,39,  would it help to simply edit post #34 with that status information in red at each respective hotel listed. (Assuming that is a comprehensive list) You could then periodically post a new post advising folks to "See Post #34 for updates on hotel availability"  It would also make it easier for folks who are just beginning to look for room availability (like me) to decipher. Just a thought..., Let me know if I can be of help in any way.  THANKS for all the hard work you are doing, I think this will be one of the greatest events ever.
