‘HOWL CON’ Hotel to Close This Fall

The hotel that was to host HOWL CON 2016 is closing this fall.

The Columbian (Vancouver, Wash.) newspaper reported Thursday the 1960s-built Red Lion Inn on the Columbia River in Vancouver, Washington, will close October 31, 2015. The land is planned for redevelopment.

The Red Lion Inn at the Quay was set to host the third HOWL CON werewolf-themed convention on February 6-7, 2016.

HOWL CON confirmed a go for HOWL CON 2016 back in February a week after HOWL CON 2015 ended.

No information has been available yet for changes to HOWL CON 2016.

Update. Aug. 29, 2015: To give you an idea how sudden this announcement was, I spoke to a friend at a party Friday night who was hired on at the Red Lion Inn at the Quay a few weeks ago.
