Finding Your Way Around the Westin

If you walk in the main door of the Westin, the registration desk for the hotel is across the lobby to your right. If you take the elevator up from the garage, take a right into the hallway, then an immediate left into the lobby. If you walk in from the D Street lobby, take the escalator up one flight and go right to get to the registration desk.

All Boskone activities are in the same wing as the City Bar and M. J. O'Connor's Pub; just take the escalators.

Take the up escalator to the second floor for Registration, most Program, most Events, Anime and the Saturday night activities.

Take the down escalator to the Galleria level for all Exhibits (Hucksters Room, Art Show), Services (Volunteers, Information, Office), Program Desk, Gaming, DragonsLair, demos, Friday events and the Boskone Reception.
