World Fantasy Convention 2004
Hotel Information


NOTE: The Tempe Mission Palms is now full. 
See below for information on our overflow hotel, the Holiday Inn ASU and other nearby hotels.
 
The 2004 World Fantasy Convention will be held at the Tempe Mission Palms resort hotel in downtown Tempe, Arizona at 60 East 5th Street, Tempe, Arizona 85281 

Room Rates for World Fantasy 2004 are US$155.00 per night single/double/triple/quad plus tax.  This includes complimentary airport shuttle to/from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport; complimentary parking for event guests and wireless internet. 

Call 800-547-8705 (or 480-894-1400) for hotel reservations or book online at Missionpalms.com using the group code FANTA   NOTE: you must use the group code to book online since we have the entire hotel blocked for the convention and the box to enter it into is only made visible after you click on the "Group Code" box in the upper right corner of the screen. 

There are a limited number of suites available.  Please contact us if you are interested in one for a party or other event. 

The Tempe Mission Palms has a large rooftop pool with two spas, lighted tennis courts, and a fitness center. The concierge desk can help with arranging golf at the nearby Karsten Golf Course. On-site dining includes the Mission Grill restaurant, the Terrace Cabana by the pool, and Harry's Place indoor/outdoor lounge. 

Please visit the Mission Palms website for more information on the hotel's amenities. 

Near the hotel in downtown Tempe are numerous restaurants featuring a wide variety of cuisines, lots of shopping, and recreation on Tempe Town Lake.  Check our Tourism page for more details.


Overflow and other Nearby Hotel Info
 
We have an overflow hotel for World Fantasy this year.  It is the Holiday Inn ASU at 915 E Apache Blvd (Rural Rd. & Apache Blvd (~1mi)).  They have their own shuttle which takes customers within 3 miles, close enough to commute to Tempe Mission Palms as well as too and from the airport.  Tempe Mission Palms also has a similar shuttle, so you can get back.  The special rate is $75/nt, slightly less than half that of Tempe Mission Palms.  This is an informal room block, which means it is first come first served and when they fill up the hotel the special is gone.  You may book directly with them online as follows:

Follow this link to www.holiday-inn.com/phx-tempeasu and use the online code WFC for the $75 rate.

Other nearby Hotels are now reporting they are full over the weekend.  Here is a couple of links to hotel directories to help find one that has rooms available.
