Hey... the Net says that the Hawthorn Suites are permanently closed... where is this being held again?

Seems strange that I signed up for it, and didn't even notice where it was....

I just found the note on the WW site that notes that the hotel will be open again in time for the con... you just have to call them to reserve a room since there is no web site to use to do so.

The Hawthorn Suites are located at 101 Trade Center Drive, Champaign, IL 61820, and can be reached by phone at (217) 398-3400. Mention that you are attending Winter War to learn about the convention room discount! This is the location of the event.

There are lots of other hotels in town though for booking rooms if needed. According to the Winter War website, Hotel Update
The Hawthorne Suites are still undergoing renovation, but will be ready for us in time for the convention, so no worries there. They don't currently have a website for you to book through, so if you want to reserve your room, please make sure to call them. You can find the phone number listed below.

I thought that it was becoming a Holiday Inn though. I'm not 100% confident that it is still Hawthorne Suites, It shows up on IHG (which is Holiday Inn I think). I talked to Susan though (one of the organizers) and the number is supposed to work for reservations at least.
