OFCC 2019 Hilton Downtown Vancouver Hotel Information

Recommended Posts

Hilton Vancouver

301 W. 6th St.

Vancouver, WA, 98660

Hotel Group Code: OWG for our special discount rate! Click this link to book your room now!

Hello everyone! I wanted to take some time to put together a good informational post about our venue. Some of you might already be familiar and we are happy to see you returning. For all the new people coming through, this venue is the nicest place I have seen an OFCC happen. From the humble beginnings of the barn and the armory, the Hilton delivers comfort and luxury like no other!

Map & Directions

The Gaming Hall

We booked the largest venue offered by the Hilton, The Heritage Ballroom. That’s 11,000 square feet dedicated to your gaming weekend. High pile carpets caress your feet as you stand across from your opponents (Yes, I played barefoot one year). 18 feet of ceiling space softens the roar of battle coming from across the hall. Brilliant dynamic lighting sets the mood and provides for a not-so-squinty Sunday morning. A dedicated entrance on the east side of the Hilton along with a section of 5 minute parking make loading your things into the hall fast and convenient.

Parking

Parking is not included in your room stay. The Hilton has parking in their secure garage for $18 per day. However, there are plenty of parking options for the weekend. Any public metered spot is available for free on the weekend. There is also a cheaper pay garage NE of the Hilton, the Park N’ Go located with an entrance off W 6th St.

Feel free to use the 5 minute loading/unloading zone located off Columbia St to unload your army and bags into the hall. Please note, we will be using part of this area for loading/unloading of terrain and tables Sunday at 4PM.

Local Attractions

What venue would be complete without some cool stuff around it? The Downtown Vancouver area always delivers. Almost all of it walkable.

  •        The Vancouver Farmers Market takes place every weekend morning across the street in Esther Short Park.
  •        Esther Short Park will host Viva Vancouver Latin Festival on the same weekend.
  •        Loowit Brewing Company is right out the hall doors and across the street. They fill growlers!
  •        Joe’s Crab Shack and its infamously long wait times is within walking distance and will provide Shark Bites by the tray full.
  •        Take a tour of the new waterfront reconstruction built on top of the hollowed gaming grounds previously provided by the Red Lion at the Quay.
  •        So many other restaurants, bars, and everything else all right next to a great gaming weekend.

Please follow the steps below to get our discounted room rate before they are all gone! We have a limited amount of rooms available at this low price, so act fast. The room block closes on 8/9 and has the possibility of running out of rooms.

We cannot wait to see you there!

FYI:

Booking shoulder nights has come to our attention as a potential issue with getting a reservation.

Shoulder nights are the Thursday before the event (August 15) and the Sunday night after the event (August 18). We have a limited number of shoulder nights and if you attempt to book your stay including one of these days, it may say your reservation is not possible or "nothing found for these dates".

We can fix this! Please PM myself, @evil_bryan, or @ninefinger and we can contact the hotel and add more days. Please include which days you need to book in your PM. Thanks and cannot wait to see all of you there!

Oh man...

Parking is free on the weekends in Vancouver, but the Farmer's Market is going on so that tends to tie up a lot of stuff in the area. If you can't get in at the Hilton, there are parking garages at 8th and Broadway, 5th and Main, and parking lots on the other side of City Hall and at the new Waterfront development.

There is so much more food now too. The new Waterfront has several great if not pricey restaurants. Directly across from the Hilton though is the Smokin' Oak which has primo BBQ. The Farmer's Market has a ton of food stalls too, some great stuff. If you walk over to Washington and 6th there's Little Conejo for awesome tacos and Nonavo Pizza for wood fired thin crust pizza. Head up a block to 7th for the Grocery Cocktail for some southern style food and great drinks. Washington and 8th you can get Tommy O's Hawaiian or go to Low Bar for fancy bar grub. Or you can always just walk up Main Street and find everything ever. Vinnie's does great pizza, and Joe Brown's has excellent greasy diner style food.

Anything specific you're looking for, just let me know!
