Hotel Status

I know it’s been a while since any of us have had to deal with a hotel where the convention doesn’t automatically fill every crevice of guest room space so we’re re-crossing old ground here. 

So, unless a message is posted right here (and on our Twitter and Facebook pages) stating the hotel itself is completely sold out and overflow hotels are available, if you try to reserve a room and it says a room is not available, please contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. immediately.  If you would like, include your real name, the room size you need, and a phone number the hotel can reach you at so we can pass that along to the hotel staff and perhaps they can call you themselves—not promising anything, but it never hurts to try and, if the hotel wants us to be the direct liaison to you, we have no trouble doing so!  The hotel says they will do their best to keep an eye on the status of our room block and expand it for as long as they can, but you know how we are…just one big, giant herd of wild creatures so sometimes our en masse hotel reservations can catch anyone off-guard.  Please be patient and polite, like I know you are, and let this hotel fall in love with our group like every hotel has.

Reserve your room online via this link!

When you click on the above link, you will be directed to the Crowne Plaza Danbury page where you will be prompted to select your dates.  Simply input the dates and click “Book.”  Once you select "Book", you will then be directed to the personalized Tiny Paws Con page where you will be able to select the room type at the special convention rate.  From there, you can proceed with the booking as normal.

If, after placing your reservation, you notice one or more dates are being charged at a higher price than the listed con rate, contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your confirmation number, name, and a phone number where you can be reached.  This most likely means the reservations have used up our current room block and the room block for the affected days needs to be increased if possible.

For all reservations

There is no hold at the time of booking.  At check in, however, the card is swiped and authorized for the room + tax ($119 + 15% = $136.85) per day for the length of your stay, plus an additional $50 for incidentals.  The $50 will clear about a week or two after check out.  We HIGHLY recommend using a credit card for all travel expenses like this so your personal bank account isn’t inaccessible during the weekend due to this large hold being placed on it if you use a debit card.

HOW TO GET HERE

Be sure to check all your travel methods to make sure they are available on the day and time you are traveling to the convention AND on the day and time you are returning home.

Travel by Car

Check with your local furs through Twitter and other online furry communities for carpooling opportunities!  Be good riders and pay your share for gas and tolls!

The hotel is located just off I-84 on the Connecticut side of the central Connecticut/New York State border.

The exit on I-84 West for the hotel is Exit 2A.  (My GPS tried to take me from CT into NY and then U-turn to come back into CT.)  Follow the curve of the exit and merge onto Old Ridgebury Road.  After crossing over the highway, the Crowne Plaza will be on your immediate left.  The driveway coming down into the hotel is narrow, steep, and curvy.  Drive slowly!

The exit on I-84 East (coming from NY State) is Exit 2.  In short order, turn LEFT onto Milestone, RIGHT onto Mill Plain Road, RIGHT onto Old Ridgebury.  After crossing over the highway, the Crowne Plaza will be on your immediate left.  The driveway coming down into the hotel is narrow, steep, and curvy.  Drive slowly!
