Dearest Fanime con goers, please help me with a dilemma. For the past 4 years I have stayed in 3 different hotel rooms. Crown Plaza, Marriot, and Hilton. I no longer go to cons alone, but my roommates tend to be pretty nitpicky when it comes to hotels. Staying at the Hilton has been crossed out, due to some of my friends having respiratory problems from their poor air ventilation. Don't remember much from my experience at Crown Plaza, except the rooms being kinda small so that's out too.
Which leaves Marriot and Fairmont.This year, I was thinking about staying at the Fairmont hotel. The reasons; because it's roomier. Also the B&W Ball is there, so we can get an early place in line. The downside is that it's a few blocks away from the main convention, which requires some walking even at night. Hence, why I try to reserve for Marriot and Hilton because they're directly connected to the con. But the walking isn't that big of a deal, so long as we stick with a buddy system. Our stay at the Marriot was okay, but there have been some issues concerning their deposit policy. Not to mention how expensive it can be, and the lack of room for our stuff. But whenever we were exhausted and needed to dump our things, it was always there.
So if any of you have stayed at both of these hotels, give me a little feedback.
