Brooklyn Bridge Marriott sold out

The host hotel for the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, the Marriott by the Brooklyn Bridge, is completely booked for the Saturday night of the tournament. If you're planning to go but hadn't reserved a room yet, don't freak out. Sit tight. The ACPT organizers are working on lining up an overflow hotel.

This doesn't mean registrations have skyrocketed. They're predicting a slightly smaller crowd than last year, based on registrations to date vs. registrations 2 1/2 weeks pre-tournament last year.

And no, you can't share my room!
