Hotel Accommodations

The Radisson Plaza Hotel will be hosting Great Lakes Book Bash again in 2017. We have set aside a block of rooms for the following nights:

Thursday, October 26, 2017

Friday, October 27, 2017

Saturday, October 28, 2017

Rates for 2017 are already locked in at 2015 prices and are $136 a night for a standard room. The cut-off date for reserving your room is October 5, 2017. Should you attempt to make a reservation and the hotel says that the block of rooms is full, please contact me and I will attempt to open more rooms within our block. DO NOT book a room at that point in time. I will only be able to add rooms to our block if the hotel is not already full and October tends to be a busy month for them.

Please call the hotel directly to make a reservation.

For those of you that are joining us for your first Great Lakes Book Bash, the hotel has plenty to offer its guests. There are four restaurants – Breakfast at Burdicks, Zazzio’s (Italian), Burdick’s Bar & Grill and Webster’s (fine dining) – as well as a spa, pool, retail shops and…. STARBUCKS in the main lobby. The hotel is located in the center of downtown Kalamazoo so if you do decide to venture out, there is plenty to do within walking distance.
