Yah, we'll see if we can get that up soon.

Did you guys notice that the Hotel link from the Fanime's Location page still takes you to 2009's closed reservation page?  Anyone who does not look here in the forums would not know how to reserve a hotel room.

*Sighs* I missed being able to get the dates for the Hilton and Saint Clair's. ._. Wasn't even aware that the dates were open five days ago. Anyway got the Fairmont; is it really an evil walk like some people are saying? I'm reading anywhere from 3-10 mins. I don't mind the 3-5 mins walk (even 10 mins is fine and probably not all that troublesome; but yeah.. just how some people make it seem). And it is one block away? I saw someone say it was 2 blocks? o_o

The link in "Location" on the website is now fixed.

Foxberry - it's really not a bad walk at all. I'm mildly disabled and I can't walk long distances, but I regularly passed by the Fairmont while exploring the area looking for food. Unless you have a really big, heavy, elaborate cosplay, it shouldn't be more than five minutes.

Sadness, I've always stayed right at the convention every year.  I was unaware that it opened long before there was a post on the Fanime main page.  All the days I normally go are sold out.

I have a small question/concern after reading other board members posts and the time stamps on them.
I just recently reserved my rooms, but it went through with flying colors. I have two confirmations for rooms at the Hilton for Thursday check-in~Monday checkout.
So in the chance of looking like a complete idiot, did I miss something...? Or were rooms added?

Was the Marriott unavailable on Thursday from the start, or has that day filled up?  Will there be more rooms added?

No, there were rooms available, but often they fill up extremely fast. There is a possibility of more rooms being released but that is contingent on a number of issues, but the safest thing is to reserve now.

Got my room from Thurs-Monday at the Hilton.  Very excited, this being my first time in California and my first Fanime (I'm from Florida).

X3 Alright; I didn't think it was too big of an issue... I don't think I have anything elaborate (at least not yet I don't know XD ha...) Thanks though~!

We have a single bed at the Hilton for Friday to Monday. We're relatively local so the hotel is more for convenience/cosplay's sake than anything else.  And a fridge, because I'm not so cool as to be able to subsist on ramen and restaraunt food (though the latter will likely creep it's ugly way into my diet that weekend just out of sheer laziness XD ).

The bummer I'm seeing is parking...we're likely going to have two cars for convenience reasons, and that rate's a little steep..

I have 2 questions.  :P

1. Does anyone know how much the Junior Suites will be costing if we request one?
2. Where is the best place to park if you are rooming at the Marriott? (I know they only do valet parking but, I want to know if there are other places to park with/without pay, valet is a last resort)

I thought about checking out the rooms at the Fairmont.  Some of my friends stayed there in '08 and '09, and the rooms are fantastic.  I have the chance.  I booked at the Fairmont because Monday night was unavailable at the Marriott T__T  I keep checking the hotel website just in case ^__^


2. Where is the best place to park if you are rooming at the Marriott? (I know they only do valet parking but, I want to know if there are other places to park with/without pay, valet is a last resort)


Park inside convention center garage and on the Marriott side.  You and your roomies can bring your luggages from you car to the Marriott.  The walk is short.  IIFC, I paid $12 per night.

Awesome thanks. :D First time staying in the Marriott and was unaware that they had their own garage too. (Only stayed on the Hilton side) I've booked a double/double room for Friday-Mon. When I looked, it was unavailable for Monday like you said but, is that only for the night? I chose it as my departing day. Just a tad bit confused since it let me choose it.  ???

Last year, I stayed at the Marriot and used their garage. The regular rate was $25, however, for convention goers the price was halved. So I paid $12.50 per night. It was nice since the valet unpacked the car and sent everything up to our room for us quite quickly.

I got a question about the Hilton. You know how they have mini-fridges? I was wondering if you have to request for them or are they already provided, since I didn't see a fridge request option when I booked last night.

I believe each room has a mini fridge already. That's been the case every time I've stayed at the Hilton. No need to request one. Should call the hotel to make sure though.

Does the Marriott rooms all have fridges as well? I can't remember seeing that included anywhere.

Thanks! That's not so bad, better than paying 20 for parking each day. >_<
