For those of you who are going to ADS/LSA in Pittsburgh, see below. It says that the rooms are sold out in the conference hotel -- but I was just this minute able to reserve a room in the conference hotel, the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown, for $99 a night for three nights, $338.58 including taxes. Does not include parking. I called the reservation number on the website: 877-999-3223.

> Dear Colleagues,
> I am writing with some final reminders regarding registration and hotel reservations for the LSA Annual Meeting, which will take place in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania from January 6-9 at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown Hotel.
> The deadline for preregistration for the meeting is Monday, December 20th at 11:59 PM US Eastern Time.  Technical support will not be available after 5:00 PM on that day.  Links to online preregistration and a downloadable preregistration form are available at https://lsadc.org/info/registration-info.cfm.  Note that onsite registration rates are significantly higher.
> Please note that due to extraordinary demand for Annual Meeting housing, standard rooms at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown Hotel are in very limited supply or have sold out entirely on the conference nights.  A very small number of Executive Level Rooms ($134/night) or Junior Suites ($149/night) may be available depending on the dates of your stay.  Please telephone 1-800-821-1888, extension 4007 to determine availability.  The deadline for reserving a hotel room at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown is Thursday, December 16, 2010.
> For those attendees who are unable to secure a room at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown, or who have missed the December 16th deadline, we are delighted to announce the availability of a block of rooms at the Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel, located approximately one-third of a mile (about four blocks) from the Wyndham Grand.  A number of rooms are available at the single/double rate of $129/night.  To reserve a room at the Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel, please call 1-800-468-3871 (24 Hours) or 1-866-454-4400 Monday-Friday between 8:00 AM and 6:00 PM US Eastern Time and reference the LSA Annual Meeting.  This block of rooms at the Renaissance Pittsburgh will be held, subject to availability, through January 2.
> I am sending this message to all LSA members as well as to individuals who have already preregistered for the meeting but may not have reserved a hotel room; please excuse any duplicate messages.
> Sincerely,
