Doubletree Hotel Rebranding

Thursday, 06 June 2013 21:01

The Doubletree Hotel is currently undergoing a name change; they are returning to their previous International Plaza name. They have also been taking reservations for 2014, and are now FULLY BOOKED for the convention weekend (yikes!). They have already begun to use the name International Plaza, so if your hotel booking information has this name, rest assured you have NOT been moved to a different hotel.
