Potlatch 18: Feb. 27 - March 1, 2009


The Domain Hotel is located at 1085 E. El Camino Real, Sunnyvale, California. This is between Wolfe Road and Lawrence Expressway on the Santa Clara side of the city. The hotel is accessible by public transit, most simply by the Valley Transit Authority 22 bus from the Santa Clara Transit Center or the San Jose CalTrain station.

To reserve a room: visit https://reservations.ihotelier.com/crs/g_reservation.cfm?groupID=172888&hotelID=14931
or call 408-247-0800. (Mention the Potlatch attendee code: 0902POTLAT.)

Rates: $109/night for a regular guest room with either one king bed or two queen beds.  $139/night for an executive suite, including king bed, sofabed, and Jacuzzi. Handicap-accessible rooms are available on inquiry to the hotel. All room rates include a hot buffet breakfast for one or two people, with scrambled eggs, bacon, potato, oatmeal, pastries and cereal, plus—this is Silicon Valley after all—rice, miso soup, and Japanese condiments. On Sunday we'll be having an equally enticing lunch buffet, details to come.

$10 extra per day will be charged if the room is occupied by three or four persons, except that there is no additional charge for children under 10 years old. The rooms have lots of drawers and desk working space, refrigerators, and large LCD TVs that can be used as computer monitors. (Free wired and wireless internet, of course.) The hotel has free parking, a heated outdoor pool, and a fitness studio.

Potlatch will be running from Friday, Feb. 27 through Sunday, March 1, 2009; but our room rates are good for stays arriving as early as Monday, Feb. 23 and departing as late as Thursday, March 5. This is a real bargain for a business-oriented Silicon Valley hotel; so come and pay a long visit and see some of our sights!
