The Hotel and Directions
The hotel has reserved rooms at the discount rate of $109 per night but when you call to book your room, be sure to mention the convention name to get the special rate! The Hunt Valley Inn (formerly the Marriott Hunt Valley), is now called the Hunt Valley Wyndham and is located just outside of Baltimore, MD. The Hunt Valley Wyndham offers out-of-state tourists an opportunity to explore what the city of Baltimore has to offer. Take advantage of all the hotel has to offer with wireless high-speed internet, fitness center, and indoor/outdoor pool.
Every person who spends at least one night at the hotel gets a special gift when they check in! Simply tell the convention registration desk that you are staying the night at the hotel and show your hotel receipt or room key card before the weekend is over and we’ll give you a special gift!
Note: The hotel is no longer a Marriott. They are now known as The Hunt Valley Wyndham. In order to get the special hotel room discount you MUST call the phone number below and tell them you are booking your room at the Nostalgia Convention discount rate. Or click the link below to book your room directly.
If you have problems booking your room, e-mail Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org. In past years, the hotel played games with attendees and provided various reasons why rooms were not available at the convention rate even though rooms were indeed available. Sometimes it was as silly as the employee not being able to find the convention rate on their computer. If you experience any issues with the hotel when booking your room, PLEASE contact Martin at email@example.com. If need be, book a room at the regular rate and then e-mail Martin and he will make sure your room rate is adjusted to the convention rate.
Booking a hotel room is the responsibility of the convention attendee, not the convention staff. Like any convention or film festival, rooms are sold at the hotel on a first-come, first-serve basis, even if you have been to the convention for many consecutive years. People have been booking their rooms earlier every year and the hotel sells out early in advance.

Because the size of the attendance has grown, our volunteer staff is no longer able to pick up attendees going to or from the airport and the hotel. We apologize for any inconvenience, but it is impossible for us to handle this task for everyone. There are a number of options.
If you contact Super Shuttle,1-800-258-3826, or http://www.supershuttle.com/en/BWIAirportShuttleBaltimore.html, provide us with a copy of your receipt (or just hand it to us momentarily to look at and verify) and we’ll give you a free gift to compensate for the inconvenience.
If you choose to take a cab, provide us with a copy of your receipt (or just hand it to us momentarily to look at and verify) and we’ll give you a free gift to compensate for the inconvenience.The free gift is separate from the free gift you get for staying at the hotel overnight!
Another option is the light rail. http://mta.maryland.gov/light-rail The light rail travels from BWI and stops across the street from the hotel. This option usually costs less than $3 per person (some people told us it cost $1.50 a person). There are two different light rails. One is the local (and stops at every stop) and the other is the express (which skips a number of stops). Try to get the express because the local will take longer to get to the hotel.
Amtrak has two stations available. Baltimore is located at 1515 North Charles Street and is the closest to the hotel. The light rail does not stop at this station and a cab or Super Shuttle is the only way to get to the hotel. The other hotel station is located at BWI located at 7 Amtrak Way. The light rail is available from this station.
