PLEASE NOTE: The cut-off for reservations at the Malice block rate is March 25, 2017, SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY. (This means if the block is filled for your desired dates prior to the cut-off date, you may not be able to get our guaranteed rate).

Please be aware, our block is very limited Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday nights ("shoulder" nights). If you try to book online and get the message "room not available," it is probably because one night you want is not available. Please contact Caroline Craig at if you have problems, and she will work with the hotel to get increases in our block. Let her know the dates you want to book and what type room you want (king, queen, double/double, or any specific requirements you might have).

If you call for reservations, please reference the code MAL5. Remember, it's always best to book your room early; your credit card will not be charged anything as long as you cancel at least 48 hours prior to your arrival date.
