The housing page should be coming up around January or February. In the meantime, you can check out the forum posts for price guides and tips.

Thanks.

Can I go off the 08 prices as a general guide or is that remotely accurate at all?

It should give you a ballpark, but some wierd things are happening this year at the hotels so it may be diff.

Yeah I saw some threads about renovations. I'll keep it in mind. I'll also see about recruiting some friends to come along so we can split the cost.

Is it also okay to book a room through the normal hotel then add the fanime housing price to the reservation later and still have it count, or should I directly use Fanime Housing?

I don't think you will get fanime housing pricing if you book via the hotel. Not too sure though.

Might be worth it to call up the hotel directly to find out.

Should I blame the economy or Ebner for this? *undecided* :[

Blame Canada! That's always a failsafe.

Blaming Canada can only get you so far. That where we blame everything else on our public officials and the government.

Usually booking straight with the hotel you dont get the same prices as booking through the page when Fanime ups it.

Oh...that doesn't sound promising.  Here's hoping things work out well.

SHHHH jesus man. Don't say shit like that...

Besides, in 6 months we'll at least know where we stand. The reason the economic crisis is so bad now is because we keep getting this bad news trickling in and it hits the market hard. If Obama or some big financial person (yeah that's my technical term) came out and said "Alright, here's all the terrible news about the economy, BUT here's some things we can do to help." the market would no doubt go down, a lot, but then it would actually hit a bottom.

Anyways, stay optimistic!

Wonder what it would take for us congoers to get dirt cheap hotel fares through the Hilton and Marriot?

Act of god? Mob threats? Presidential order? Alien's landing and saying "we come in peace"? I have too much spare time.. then again I can't seem to find a job....

Well, I don't know the details of what's going on behind the scenes in working out deals, but no doubt the bad economy is having some impact on negotiations.

In any case, if things work out we almost always get really good deals on rooms as it is. Many rooms are 99-109 a night, and suites are usually just 10-20 dollars more per night. Compared to average pricing of these hotels, an average Fanime congoer already saves over 100 dollars easily over the course of the 3 nights.

So, here's hoping that the Fanime staffers appeal to the better side of the Hotel representatives, and remember that your behavior at Fanime also impacts their willingness to work with us, which is why it's so important that everyone follows the rules that not only the Fanime staffers put forward, but also the Hotels.
