    Hi all,

    as mentioned before, i was working on a group discount deal with Holiday Inn Anaheim. now i have the final booking information.

    firstly, here is the hotel and address:

    Holiday Inn and Suites Anaheim
    1240 South Walnut
    Anaheim, CA 92802

    http://www.ichotelsgroup.com/h/d/6c/1/en/hd/laxaw

    the regular rate of the hotel is US$71/night and the group discount rate is US$59/night for a standard room.

    to make a reservation with the discount, you need to do one of the following:

    - make a reservation by phone - call Griselda Vizcarra at +1 (714) 876-2604. if you mention the group BadmintonCentral, they will give you the discount. alternate number is (800) 824-5459

    - make a reservation by email - email Megan Hassett at Meganh@dknhotels.com. if you mention the group BadmintonCentral, they will give you the discount.

    the discount is only valid between Mon 8/15 and Sunday 8/21. the cut-off date for the group discount is 8/1, you need to make your reservation by then.

    right now they have 10 rooms reserved for us.

    Hotel link
    Well, from the link above, there was no mention about airport shuttle or venue shuttle. I think the IBF WC sponsored hotel has them.

    However, with paying the taxis from Orange County Airport and to the Arrowhead Pond. I think staying at Holiday Inn will still be cheaper.

    According to the hotel info, OC Airport is 12 miles or 20 km away (taxis about US$30). Arrowhead Pond is about 4 miles or 6 km away.

    I do not believe there are any restriction. When I was talking to the hotel, they said if there were more reservation than the alloted rooms, they will just increase the allotment and keeps the same price.

    Kwun,

    Thanks. Have decided to go to World Champs.
    Have put in my leave and order tickets ( I wanted to get the best tickets for position, so had to settle on the mini session package - section 208 row Q) . Now just working on airfare (looks like best price is AU$1609.00) and accomodation.

    Will there be a BF gathering?

    Regards

    Stuart
