Transcript nightly. Beautiful and spacious, the 10,000 square foot ballroom is reminiscent of the great hotels of the past: dramatic, twenty-five foot arched windows and magnificent Italian crystal chandeliers, mounted in bronze plates in a pitched, recessed, nineteen-foot high ceiling, make this room a showplace. The Grand Ballroom, seating fifteen hundred, has a large reception area and its own kitchen adjacent. The Adams is located only two blocks from the local bus station and six blocks from both Greyhound and Continental bus stations. It is roughly twenty- four blocks north of the Maricopa Freeway, up Central Avenue, and is accommodated by limousine service from Phoenix' Sky Harbor International Airport. The hotel is across a limited-access street from the Hyatt, which is across the street from the Convention Center and Civic Plaza. Zhc Hqatt Xegencq The Hyatt Regency is a large, new hotel, incorporating features which would have made early science fiction fans quake with sensawonda: an airy, eight- story atrium overlooked by curving balconies and rooms, three glass-walled elevators which glide up through the ceiling to a revolving restaurant on the twenty- sixth floor. Something out of Caves of S teel. The atrium will be extremely comfortable and convenient for fannish gatherings. It is broken up into clusters of chairs, couches, and coffee tables, is visually very attractive, and it is served around the clock by the Terrace Coffee Shop. The hotel also offers a very good range of minor services, such a laundry, dry cleaning, ticketron, limo service, stenographic service, safety deposit boxes, a notary, interpreters, currency exchange, church services, etc. Major, credit cards (Diners Club, Bank Ameri- Card, American Express, Carte Blanche, MasterCharge) are accepted, and the front desk will cash checks with any positive ID. Room service has a fairly elaborate menu, and the hotel has agreed to keep coke and ice machines stocked as they are emptied. •v -, mm Contention Center & SijiYipbornj Hall IguanaCon II will be the first worldcon to make use of one of the giant, technologically-sophisticated convention, complexes which have sprung up in large cities in the last few years. The Phoenix Civic Plaza, consisting of a Convention ^^Center (with more than 120,000 square feet of exhibit space) and a Symphony Hall (pictured above) with 2,557 seats, JM lis a particularly impressive example of Ithis kind of facility. It occupies a site as I large as six city blocks. In one of the 'exhibit halls, the entire registered membership could sit down to dine without putting a strain on the climate control, lighting, sound, and kitchen facilities. The whole complex is like a machine. The smaller Assembly Hall, for instance, which will house the hucksters' room, is serviced by a network of tunnels which provide more than a hundred floor receptacles for single-phase, two-phase,and three-phase electrical outlets. The Masquerade and the Hugo Presentation ceremony will be held in the Symphony Hall. With its mirror- walled, 48-foot lobby, Venetian hand- blown chandeliers, and the largest single piece of embroidery in the world (The Grand Drape), we might begin to wonder if the Convention . Complex fulfills the same role for the modern North Ameri can that the cathedral did in Europe. Con-goers will discover that, on a warm, desert evening, the outdoor area of the plaza, with its night lighting, sculpture, spectacular fountain and scattered seating, will be just like a vast indoor mezzanine. That about sums up the Civic Plaza—big and modern. We hope that the use of the facilities will take the pressure off some of the worldcon program items which have, in the last few years, grown too big for ordinary hotel facilities to cope with. If things continue to grow at their present rate, maybe the concoms of the future will be looking into that field near Woodstock, NY. . . X>K,GUANAC0N PROGRAM BOOK
