Most HHC 2013 attendees stayed at the Cambria Suites Hotel in Fort Collins, just down the street from HP. This facilitated socializing after hours, arranging carpools, comparing programming techniques while lounging in the hotel’s indoor whirlpool, and so on.

Cambria Suites, which was also the official hotel of HHC 2009 and HHC 2010, once again offered us a special room rate, and this year it was even less than in 2009 and 2010!

The special HHC 2013 rate was only $72 per night (plus taxes), single king, or $82 double queen.

The following is obsolete information, but is left online for historical reasons.

To reserve a room at this awesome HHC 2013 rate, you must call the hotel direct at 970-267-9000. Be sure to mention “HHC 2013” for the special HHC rate! This special rate offer is not available online or by toll-free telephone; it is only available by direct telephone call. The offer is good until they run out of rooms or August 20, whichever comes first. After the August 20 deadline, they might be able to extend the special rate for you; it’s worth a try.

Contact Richard J. Nelson if you have any questions or hotel issues.
