concerning the method of refund, discuss this with the call agent when
you make your reservation.

Just a friendly reminder....
To obtain a full refund, all Hunt Valley Inn reservations for Shore Leave 36 must be made by July 11, 2014.
All who make cancellations made after that date will be charged for one room night. Anyone who cancels on

We do this so that we can have time to refill the rooms with other fans who prefer to stay in our hotel.
We have a waiting list made up of those who had to be moved to other hotels this year (due to construction).
Any rooms made available will be provided to those customers on a first reserved, first-back-in basis.
The hotel has an ATM machine. It is located across from the entrance to the
Garden Dealers Room.
Bring a sweater or sweatshirt and a pair of long pants. The hotel rooms,
especially the convention facilities, can be a bit on the chilly side even

A Note for Foreign Fans:
No local hotels or banks exchange foreign currency. If you need cash in US
dollars, your options are: bring it with you from your country, get it at
the Foreign Exchange Office at BWI Airport, or get it at the American Express
Travel Office in downtown Baltimore. Please click this link
