Additional tidbits and trivia
If you have a question about the hotel that isn't covered here,
and we'll try to track down the answers.
- "What hours will Kinko's be open?"
- Fed Ex Kinko's will be open in the Marriott
(714-703-2250) Mon-Fri 7:00 AM - 10:00 PM and Sat/Sun 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM;
and in the Convention Center (714-765-8820) 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM from
Wednesday August 23 through Monday August 28.
- "What are the convention rates?
- Rates at the Marriott are $99 single/double/triple/quad,
plus tax. Suites, in varying sizes and prices, are also available.
- "How do I reserve my room?"
- For regular rooms,
contact the hotel directly.
See above for phone number, booking code, and a direct link to their website.
- Suites are handled by the convention.
- "What about tax? How much are the rooms, really?"
- Tax on hotel rooms in Anaheim is 15%, plus two additional
surcharges that add up to $1.78 per night.
- "How tall is the hotel?"
- The Marriott has two guest towers.
- The Palms Tower contains guest floors
2-12, 14-19. It has the low-numbered rooms on each floor,
for example rooms 1600-1639.
This is the tower above the hotel's main entrance and front desk, and is
the left-hand tower in the photo.
- The Oasis Tower (i.e., the one to the west) contains
guest floors 2-12, 14-17. It has the high-numbered rooms on each
floor. This is the tower
above the function space (also known as the "Marriott Hall") and is closer
to the Anaheim Convention Center. It's the right-hand tower in the photo.
- "Where can I find a cash machine?"
- There's an ATM in the lobby.
- "Is the hotel barefoot-friendly?"
- Sort of. ("Don't ask, don't tell.") They have a pool, after all, and
the most common route to get to it from the Palms Tower elevators is
through the Lobby
Bar. The hotel does not have a specific barefoot policy. If you're
running barefoot through the function space, a hotel employee might
suggest shoes for your own safety, but the actual call one way or the
other would be made by the manager on duty at that time. My suggestion:
don't leave dirty footprints and they probably won't hassle you.
from California's Dept. of Health Services .)
- All that having been said, be advised that if you ask them then they have to give you an official answer
and that answer will probably be "no" because they're afraid that if they give you permission and you hurt yourself,
you'll be upset with them.
- "Are the stairs available for our use?"
- Sort of. The stairs in the Oasis Tower have "two-way doors" (that is,
you can get from the floor to the stairs and from the stairs to the
floor) except for the first floor, where the door locks behind you as you
exit the stairs. (We haven't examined the Palms Tower stairs closely yet.)
- "Is there a self-service coin laundry?"
- "What credit cards do the hotel accept?"
- American Express, Carte Blanche, Diners
Club, Discover, En Route, JCB, Mastercard, Visa.
