The planned trip for Boston/Providence is a “go”! Now is a good time to book your room at the Hotel Marlowe.
You can book by phone by calling the Hotel Marlowe’s in-house reservations at 617-772-5838 or their central reservations at 1-800-KIMPTON. In either case please identify yourself as a member of the Arizona Glass Alliance group. You can also make reservations over the web by clicking this link.
The rate is $249 per night, double or single occupancy, plus tax. The hotel has also agreed to extend this rate if you want to come a few days early and/or stay a few days later, but only on a space available basis, so it’s good to reserve early. If you do want this option then please contact Megan Morris, Conference Service Manager at the hotel. Her number is 617-395-2556. Please remember that our first event will be a welcome dinner at 7:30 on Wednesday night, April 27, and the bus will be leaving the hotel around 7, so plan your air travel in time to make that event. We will have three full days and evenings planned for the 28th, 29th and 30th, so you can book a return flight for anytime Sunday morning, May 1, or later.
One of the bonuses of our trip to Boston will be a chance to attend the Society of Arts and Crafts spring fair, which is an annual high quality event. The fair is scheduled for Friday, April 29, through Sunday, May 1. While we are not planning a visit to the fair for our group as such, we have deliberately not programmed anything on Sunday May 1, so if you’d like to stay in Boston that Sunday (or part of it) to attend the fair you’ll be able to do that. For more information about the Society and the fair please visit their website, which is www.societyofcrafts.org.
The other good news is that we have room for a few more members to join the party, so if you haven’t signed up yet now is the time! It’s sure to be a fun trip.
