    I need help, Ladies!

    My friend and are going to the International Quilt Festival in Houston in Nov.

    I'm looking at hotels online. All the hotels affiliated with the quilt show are sold out.

    Do you know if there are any nearby hotels that offer shuttle service to the convention center?

    Thanks SO much,
    Michelle

    I can't help you with other hotels but, I would call the hotels daily. I was able to get a room this way last year.

    Contact or check the web site of the organizers. Sometimes people rent rooms in their homes for big events like that. Is a long shot, but may be worth it.

    I have a room at the Doubletree that I am going to cancel. It was less expensive for me to go elsewhere and rent a car for the week.

    I just went in and pretended I was getting a room, and got one here for $199.00 a night with a king size bed. Keep trying. Cancellatations are happening every day.

    I need a room with double beds. I was able to reserve a room 7 blocks from the convention center and it has a shuttle service on Friday, but not Sat.

    I can cancel my reservation though so please let me know of any other tried and true info.

    Thank y'all so much!

    Also check with quilt shops in the area. They use to offer shuttle service. There is Quiltworks (281) 256-3550
    at 290 and Skinner...so it would be posible to stay somewhere on 290, rent a car and take the shuttle in each day. I would offer a room but right now the casa is full that weekend.

    HAVE FUN !! Be sure to have your walking shoes WELL BROKEN IN. LOTS of walking..... I stayed with friends and rented a car. MUCH cheaper. Be sure to have a game plan with what to do each day. Plan to visit the local quilt stores. Time goes by so fast when you are on the convention floor.
