Blocked rooms

We have reserved a block of 25 rooms at the Saga Motor Hotel near Caltech (1633 E Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91106) from April 26 to May 2. The hard deadline for booking a room in this block is April 8. After that date, the blocked rooms will be released, so they may or may not still be available after April 8. The reduced rates (per night, excluding taxes and fees) for the blocked-off rooms are below:

The above rates are for a single person. Each additional person is $10/night more. Please note that the rooms are on either 2nd or 3rd floor and there is no elevator service.
