This is a list of rooms that have been secured for parents. If your name is not on this list - you did not receive a room in the Metro block. The hotel is completely booked for our stay - but if cancellations come up - they may be able to secure us more rooms - the rate may not be at our group rate, however. If you have not booked a room elsewhere - now would be a good time to do so.
