    2011 Convention - Lodging

    Please make your reservations early for The Boars Head Inn. We have reserved a block of rooms through mid-July, and then the block begins to diminish.

    Room rates are:
    Single or Double - $169 (plus 10% tax and $8 resort fee)
    Suite - $339 (plus 10% tax and $8 resort fee)

    For reservations, call 800-476-1988 between 8am - 7pm EST, and tell them you are with the Mercedes 190SL Group.

    You make also make your reservations online by going to www.boarsheadinn.com and, on the home page, select the convention dates and then “Book Now”. You will be prompted to another page, where you should select “Group” in the second drop-down box where it reads “Negotiated Rate”. When selecting group, you will be prompted for a code, and your code will be 190SLM. After entering the code, you will reach our designated group page, and proceed with your selections.

    Before The Ball – Lodging in Williamsburg

    We have booked a limited number of rooms within a wide range of prices in Colonial Williamsburg for your consideration:

    The Woodlands Hotel & Suites is located adjacent to the Williamsburg Visitors Center, and includes a complimentary continental breakfast. Our negotiated rate for a Superior Room is $119 per night. For further information, see: http://www.history.org/visit/hotels/woodlands/index.cfm

    The Williamsburg Lodge is a very nice hotel located adjacent to the Williamsburg Inn in the restored colonial area. Our negotiated rate for a Superior Room is $179 per night, and $199 for a Deluxe Room. For further information, see: http://www.history.org/visit/hotels/...odge/index.cfm

    The Williamsburg Inn is the area’s premier lodging, located in the restored colonial area. Our negotiated rate in the main building is $379 per night. For further information, see: http://www.history.org/visit/hotels/...gInn/index.cfm

    Our first organized event will be Sunday morning, with trips along the Colonial Parkway to the revolutionary war battlefield at Yorktown and the first English settlement at Jamestown. We will then meet Sunday night for dinner in one of the colonial taverns. As a guest at one of the above hotels, you will be eligible for a significantly reduced-rate admission ticket of only $17.00 for all of the attractions within Colonial Williamsburg (good for your entire length of stay). As such, you may want to arrive on Friday or Saturday (or earlier!) to have more time to enjoy the historic charms.

    Reservations must be made before Wednesday, August 17. The above room rates do not include a 10% and $2.00 per room per night occupancy tax.

    Reservations can be made by:
    1) calling 800-261-9530 between the hours of 8:30am and 5:00pm EST, Monday through Friday, and providing the Group Name of “Mercedes 190SL Convention” and the Booking Code of “17741”; or
    2) go online anytime to https://resweb.passkey.com/go/17741 to make your own reservations.

    Please also check availability and rates directly, as sometimes you may actually receive better rates than those negotiated for the group.

    If you know of friends that are planning to attend the Before the Ball tour, you may want to contact them directly to make touring arrangements together. After you register for the 2011 Convention and make the selection to attend the Before the Ball tour, you will be notified by email about further tour arrangements. In the meantime, should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact you hosts, Brad and Pam Brady, at bradford.brady@comcast.net or at 804-364-8330.

    After The Ball – Lodging in Winchester

    At the end of the first day of our After the Ball tour (Friday, September 23), we will spend the night in the charming town of Winchester, Virginia. We have made arrangements for a limited number of rooms at The George Washington, A Wyndham Grand Hotel (http://www.wyndham.com/hotels/DCAGW/main.wnt ).

    The per night room rates are:
    • $129 for standard king, queen or double beds;
    • $219 for Extended King;
    • $289 for Junior Suite;
    • $329 for Executive Suite; and
    • $369 for Luxury Suite.

    Reservations must be made before August 23. The above room rates do not include a 10% per night room tax or $4.00 daily parking fee and $1.50 in-room safe fee. A covered parking garage is provided.

    Reservations can be made by calling 877-999-3223 and providing the Group Code of “Mercedes 190SL”.

    Please also check availability and rates directly, as sometimes you may actually receive better rates than those negotiated for the group.

    Although there was original information provided about proceeding to Middleburg and spending the night at The Red Fox Inn, the current plan is to travel together to Middleburg in the morning, and then have lunch at The Red Fox Inn.

    For those interested in the Ultimate lodging and Dining experience, you may want to consider a detour to The Inn at Little Washington ( http://www.theinnatlittlewashington.com/ ). Lodging is very limited and must be made months in advance. Rates per night extend from $635.00 to $1,180 (but includes continental breakfast!). Dinner, which is a most memorable treat, is $168 per person.

    After you register for the 2011 Convention and make the selection to attend the After the Ball tour, you will be notified by email about further tour arrangements. In the meantime, should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact you hosts, Brad and Pam Brady, at bradford.brady@comcast.net or at 804-364-8330.
