Just as another data point, the link did work for me and I got $169 for all nights, though I did have a bit of trouble getting the nights that I wanted.  I figured it out eventually.

Subject: Re: Important hotel info for NBF

Hi All-
I just called to book my rooms for NBF, and it appears that they really have no idea about the Festival or a block of rooms. I went ahead and booked my rooms without the block discount , because I love spending Georgia's money.

Total was Night 1- 213.15
                Night 2- 289.00
                Night 3 - 320.00
     Total-              822.15
     Tax incl.          922.54

So if we want to compare 169 X= for those of us without travel budgets that extra $415 will take a bite. And it seems rates do increase substantially.

Maybe we can see about having them resend the group link? Or providing a group code so we don't have to jump through as many hoops? We tried using the RQT code at the end of the link, but that does not work.

All—I asked about Cambria hotel room availability after I was told all rooms were booked. They are not, but please note the following:


I just spoke with The Cambria, and we actually only have about 50 nights out of the 295 contracted for reserved. No individual night is sold out either. It’s possible that someone was looking for a specific type of room class that is booked on one of the nights.

Related, please remind everyone that August 1 is the last day reservations can be made at the contracted rate.

If you have any problems, call Renard Roots.
