The 2019 BCPSG meeting will take place in Bermuda from November 7th through 9th. That is Thursday through Sunday, with the actual meeting happening on Saturday, November 9th. I suggest traveling to Bermuda on November 6, to be there for the start of philatelic activities the next day.
Our Meeting hotel is the Grotto Bay Hotel, 11 Blue Hole Hill, Hamilton Parish, Bermuda. Full service hotel on the beach in a great location convenient to several island attracts.
COST: $200/room/night, plus Government Tax (11.75%) $23.50/room and Service Charge of $12.50/person/day. So, a single room with all fees is $236.00 per night, and a double is $248.50.
For members not familiar with Bermuda’s hotel pricing, that is a very good price. The hotel has agreed to offer the same rates for a few days either before or after our official schedule so you may extend your “vacation.”
RESERVATIONS: Hotel rooms MUST BE BOOKED DIRECTLY WITH THE HOTEL. The rates we are given do NOT include any agent commission, so you need to book yourself. Our rooms will be “runof- the-house,” so you can request whichever location and/or level you wish.
HOTEL CONTACT INFO:
Phone: 1-441-293-8383 or toll free from the U.S. at 1-855-447-6886.
TRANSFERS: Do NOT bother! Just take a cab from the airport to Grotto Bay.
I can answer questions and/or provide some photos for anyone interested. I would also appreciate knowing if you are attending so I can adjust the number(s) for our blocked rooms. So please let me know if you book at Grotto Bay. Thanks in advance.
