not sure if it's just me, but I still didn't get the conference rate
to show up when trying to reserve online through the links provided on
the Code4Lib site or in emails, but I've used the hotel's chat service
and am able to make it that way. and just an fyi...the last night,
Thursday Feb.14th was not included at the conference rate, but they've
made a separate reservation at the regular rate (mine was $155/night).
thanks, and looking forward to my first Code4Lib!!
