Estimating your room cost.
« Reply #1 on: May 30, 2009, 12:39:52 PM »

Based on my own experiences, for anyone who likes to make an estimate and save up ahead, here's a sample from own bill when I stayed at the Hilton:

Based from 2009:
Fanime's discount: $109
(+) Tax (City room, Tourism, & Tbid Assessment): $12.98
(x) No. of nights: 4
Total: approx. $487.92
(+/-) Security deposit: $150
Total: $637.92

Give or take whatever charges they can make after you check out. I know that there was several threads about hotel's security deposit that they add on. Ask them when you check in. To be safe side, add it into your budget. Don't worry, it will be gone after check-out. If you're going to do cash deposit, ask the hotel you're staying at how much will it be.

For a good backup plan, if you have another roommate who has a credit card, ask them to be with you and see if they can hold the room. Then check-out when you have collected all the payments from your roommates, you can use your own method of payment that the hotel accepts.

If you have any other questions about it, I'll make a separate thread and please post only into that thread so we won't have clutters of repeated responses.

Thank you.

LOOKING FOR ONE ROOMMATE!

I have a king-bed room at the Marriott for 3 nights (Thursday, Friday and Saturday...NOTE: NO SUNDAY NIGHT) and am willing to bring on board one more person. Males only, 18+ only (21+ preferred). I am very laid back and will mainly be using the room as a swag stowing compartment and a comfy king bed at night. If you bunk with me you will either be on the couch or the floor, I am taking the bed all 3 nights. HOWEVER, your rate will be very cheap. $30 a night, or $90 for three nights.

A little about me: I'm a 24 (nearly 25) year old graduate student at UC Santa Cruz studying Japanese history. I drink socially and don't smoke or do drugs. I believe this will be my 6th or 7th Fanime. I am bringing my 4 younger sisters along, but they will have their own room (though I might bring them in on one or two occasions so we can have dinner together or something during the convention).

payment: We will arrange to meet up on Thursday evening at which point I will collect the $90 IN CASH. A check would work too, but cash is preferred. If for whatever reason you have to back out, please let me know at least a week in advance so I can try to fill the spot.

Contact: Send me a PM on here, send a message to MithrandielX on AIM or email me at jpsnow@ucsc.edu.

That's about it...

tl;dr: $30 a night, bring a sleeping bag. Be chill, and be a 18+ guy.

Room Needed~

+ Introduction: Hey...  I'm a 23 year old female graduate student, studying Biomedical Science, who lives in NJ.  I know, I know, you're probably thinking wtf am I doing coming all the way out to Fanime?...  Well, I got invited by two friends who live in San Jose, but now there is a rooming issue, and we aren't sure if I can room with their group or not.  So, I decided to take the initiative and find out if I can room somewhere else.  I'm usually shy and reserved, but if you talk to me, that kinda falls away.  This will be my 1st Fanime obviously, and I'm just a little paranoid about going so far alone- with my rooming issues still not resolved on top of it- but I've heard Fanime is one of the best conventions ever, and so I'm hoping to have a good experience, and meet lots of new friends.  Just wanted to add to this after seeing other people's posts- I'm a very clean, meticulous person...I didn't know bahting was an issue with anyone out there, but ew..  I'm definitely not one of those people who sits in a room playing video games for 5 days straight, and never bathes or changes clothes.
  
+ Hotel Information:  I'm willing to stay from Thursday to Monday, but that can be extended if needed(not shortened though), since I don't have my flight booked yet.
Like I say below, I want something very close to the convention, so I don't get lost.

+ Requirements: I don't know San Jose, so I want a hotel VERY close to the convention.
I don't care if the room is just girls, or mixed, but I'd like for the people to be respectable, and if possible, not minors.  I don't care how many are in the room either.
Oh... and I know that this might not go over well, but I will NOT sleep on a floor.  Cots are fine though, and I wouldn't mind paying the extra fee for a cot if no bed was available.  Sofas are fine too.  Just no floor, and I know this will not go over well, but I'm not changing my mind....hopefully I don't have to wind up getting a room on my own though just b/c of this...idk how I'd afford that and my flight, lol.
I'm shy, so I might just seem bitchy, but in all seriousness, I'll want to be able to make friends with people but might be afraid to initiate it- so outgoing/friendly roommates are a plus.  I've never been to Fanime, or anywhere in America off of the East Coast, so someone willing to show me around the convention a little might be nice- not necessary though, I'll have my friends there.
No issues with drinking or partying.

aurora- CA hotels don't allow smoking. At least, the Hilton and the Marriott that are connected to the convention center don't. I think there are one or two hotels nearby that allow smoking but I'm not sure which ones. Good luck!

About us: We are two 21 year old completely awesome females looking for roommates, pretty much for entertainment purposes. I'm always up for meeting and getting to know new people and what better way then to sleep 10feet away from them right?(this is meant in a joking/completely non-creepy sort of way) We're nice people and we don't steal.

Hotel Information
: We have a 2 bed room at the Hilton, Friday morning to Monday afternoon but we are trying to extend it to Tuesday because we just don't like to deal with the rush of leaving. Right now I'm not too sure about the price. I'm really just looking for awesome people to room with so my friend and I are going to cover as much of the cost as possible.


What we are looking for
: We don't care if you're male or female. The last few years I have said no age requirement but that's not really true, we're looking for people 16ish-26ish give or take a year. Please don't steal. And bathing is a must. Besides that we're pretty laid back. We don't care what your sleeping habits are, come and go as you wish. You will have to be ok with the fact that we stay up ALMOST all night. So it's good if you're a hard sleeper or just a night owl too. Oh yea, a sense of humor is always a plus.


Random Information: You might have to either be willing to share a bed or sleep on the floor some nights. It's still pretty early so I have NO idea how many people will be with us. I've had as many as 10 in a double bed room and everything worked out fine, but that's not my plan this year. Some friends who roomed with me last year might again so that's about 6 people right there so you would have to  be ok with all that.

If you have any questions or are interested in rooming with us you can just message me here. If you want to  get to know a little about me you can go to my myspace. Here is my friends page as well.

I'm mostly into yaoi anime and not to mention I'm more knowledgeable of yaoi . But I also like my fair share of yuri, hentai and general anime.

We decided because we don't really know how to book we'd rather join someone's pre-existing group. XD

Need a room:
+ Introduction: Yo~ I'm Zanney, aka Cosplay Cyborg over at the Cosplay.com forums. I'm into Hetalia, KHR, Persona, Pokemon, Yaoi, Steampunk and a variety of many other series and genres that would take an entire year to list. Avi is my traveling companion and best friend and she's part of the package we like to call "Team Awesome Sauce", kesesese~ Her likes include Lolita and Kodona fashion, Kuroshitsuji, Hetalia Steampunk and a bunch of other awesomeness. XD We're from Southern California, I'm 21 and Avi's 22. We're both very friendly and outgoing gals who are looking for a place to crash for Fanime. This is my third Fanime and Avi's first, and since Fanime's my all-time favorite con, I wanna make sure Avi has as much fun as I do every year.
+ Hotel Information: We'd really like to be there from Day Zero to the end of con, and we're flying over so we need to get our room settled first and foremost before we book our flight. We can be flexible, as long as we get to stay for as much of con as we possible can.
+ Requirements: Preferably no smoking because I have asthma. Drinking doesn't matter as long as it's done responsibly. If possible we'd like to share our own room key for cosplay changes and other things, but if that's not do-able the we'll still live. XD
+ Contact: You can get ahold of me fastest via AIM (lilzanchan) deviantart (CosCy009) or email (MutantSunflower @ gmail . com)
+ Miscellaneous: An extra bonus would be if we're able to stay an extra day in San Jose because Avi and I have been dying to see the city. We're fine either way tho~ I'll also provide my cell phone number upon request as I see fit. Thank you!!

Name's Ben. Currently have a room at the Crowne Plaza booked for Thursday-Monday. If anyone needs a room, I have possibly 2 spots available (gotta check with a co-worker to see if they're going or not). Otherwise, I have 1 spot available.

General rules:
Absolutely no smoking, as it's actually a law in several states.  ;D

Drinking is fine as long as you KEEP IT TO A CONTROLLABLE LEVEL. (NO UNDERAGE DRINKING. SERIOUSLY, I DON'T WANT TO HAVE ISSUES WITH ANY AUTHORITIES, I JUST WANT TO RELAX AND ENJOY THE WEEKEND.)

BATHE. For the love of god, bathe. I know some of you enjoy the dance, but some people there end up coming out with the "scent" of the entire crowd and it's really not a pleasing one.

Respect other's privacy. If you have personal items with you, make sure to take care of them and respect others' property. Like Woll Smof said in Men in Black: "Don't start notin', won't be notin'.

Try to keep the room clean/neat/tidy. I'd like to leave a good impression on the hotel, and I'd hope you would as well.

Other than that, just have fun. You can e-mail me at altimamaximus@yahoo.com

mod edit: its called a dance
