Betacon 10 will be held at the historic Hotel Anthracite in Carbondale, Pa.

Hotel Anthracite is a modern hotel with a strong connection to the Coal Mining heritage of Carbondale. In addition to Coal Mining, the area was the site of Gravity Railroad which saw the first commercial locomotive, The Stourbridge Lion, on its tracks. Hotel Anthracite has utilized that foundation to bring photography and recreated historical elements to Hotel Anthracite.

Overnight rooms are beautifully furnished and minutes from the gaming hall. There is a full-service bar and steakhouse restaurant on-site.

These rates start at $129 per night. When planning ahead, be sure and budget about $145 per night inclusive of taxes and local fees. You can book by calling the hotel directly at 570-536-6020.
