The Maine Historical Wargamers Association is pleased to announce that we will be returning to the Double Tree South Portland, 363 Maine Mall Rd, Portland, ME 04106.
After three great years at our first location, the feedback from attendees was that we were just crushing too many people into too little space, so we listened. The Double Tree provides us an additional room for more games, vendors, painting events, and simply more space around the tables. If we need to expand further, they have several additional rooms to accommodate us. The entire facility has recently undergone a complete multimillion-dollar renovation, so the convention space is terrific, and the rooms are great, too.
Located across the street from the Maine Mall, and just a couple of exits from downtown Portland, access to food and shopping is very convenient. We will still be within two miles of the airport, so traveling remains quick and easy.
The Double Tree has a restaurant onsite, but there are also several food options within a quick walk, some right across the parking lot. As to guest rooms, there is a Days Inn within a 200-yard walk with rooms for less than the host hotel. We actually visited the Days Inn and checked out a couple of the rooms to be sure that this was a decent option, and they were clean and neat. If attendees wish to stay at the host, the rooms are $105 USD, and they are all recently redone. There are also suites available if you want to have separate rooms, and more amenities.
Thank you to all the players, game masters, and vendors who have supported the growth of Huzzah!
