For Fasnacht, we'll be at the Swissotel on Messeplatz (that's in Kleine Basel, on the German side of the river):
Arrival : 28 February 2004 Departure : 06 March 2004
I had tried for the SAS Radisson, but we couldn't get in this year. Never mind, Swissotel is a pretty comfortable chain, and the price was pretty close to the same. And it'll be convenient for the Guggi concerts. Also, we're going to be coming in and out of Badischer Bahnhof, and the Swissotel is closer to that, whereas the Radisson is close to the main station.
For Eastercon, we're in the Imperial:
Check in: 08-Apr-2004, Check out: 11-Apr-2004
I do love the Internet though - the Blackpool hotel is booked through an Australian company (the bunch I normally use, initially for the Radisson the first time) and the Basel one through a Thai company.
