Looking for a roommate



I am looking for a roommate for the conference from Oct. 20th-Oct 25th. Am open to any hotel nearby, but I was looking specifically at the Best Western Tacoma Dome.


Please let me know if you are interested.




Hi Holly,

What is the rate at the Best Western Tacoma Dome?

I'll be flying in either Sunday or Monday, presenting Tuesday and flying home Wednesday. So, I'd be helping cover one or two nights. Would that work for you?

Let me know when you can and thanks.

Thank you,
