13th Floor Haunted Hotel

Friday-Sunday May 13th – 15th

You can move to a room on the 13th floor. That’s right, the DoubleTree has the 13th-floor and we have held every room….22 of them!

Move to the 13th floor and put your thinking caps on.

Your room will be given extra attention by our WCHC staff and you will be treated to visits by our WCHC “maintenance” guy, Nix, and his crew of creepy, crazy, and faithful helpers!

You have your own bar!  The 13th floor has a bar in the entrance Thursday and Friday nights.  Drinking at this bar helps support the convention.  All drinks purchased there help us raise money!  As if you needed another reason to drink!

How it works:

You reserve a room at the DoubleTree Hotel for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at the discount show rates. This upgrade option is only available to reservations for the entire weekend. Once you have made your reservation (have your reservation number handy), contact ed@hauntersconvention.com and he will get you haunted!
