Overflow Hotel -Deadline Oct. 17

PITTSBURGH, PA [OCA Communicatons] -- The Preconciliar Commission is pleased to announce that arrangements have been made with Pittsburgh's Renaissance Hotel, a AAA 4 Diamond Marriott facility, to serve as the overflow hotel for participants of the 15th All-American Council to be held November 10 to 13, 2008.

"We are very pleased that we could find an overflow hotel that is located so close to the site of the Council," said OCA Secretary, Archpriest Eric G. Tosi. "The Renaissance Hotel, which is located at 107 Sixth Street, is within walking distance of the Pittsburgh Hilton, about a third of a mile or a seven minute walk."

With the Pittsburgh Hilton's block of rooms allocated for the 15th All-American Council at a special council rate now full, Council participants still seeking a hotel room may make a reservation with the Renaissance Hotel and receive a special conference rate of $159.00 plus tax per night. The Renaissance Hotel has only single-bed guestrooms; however, a limited number of rollaway beds are available at $10.00 per day.

The reservation deadline for the Renaissance Hotel's conference rate is Friday, October 17, 2008. Council participants wishing to book a room at the Renaissance are asked to call the hotel directly at (866) 454-4400 or (412) 562-1200 and state that they are with the Orthodox Church in America. The special rate will extend, based on room availability, for three days before and after the official Council dates.

Parking at the public/city garage located across the street from the Renaissance Hotel entrance is $10.00 for 24 hours with no "in/out" privileges. Valet parking at the hotel is $25.00 daily. For details and other parking options contact the hotel when making reservations or checking in.
