copied from 2010/2011 thread ....cuz you guys HAD to ask this early...
post away!
Welcome to 2012 version for this thread. More descriptive and more professional looking post. Do you need roommates? Or do you need a room? This is the place to post up your wanted ads.

+ Hilton (adjacent to convention, has mini fridges)
+ Marriott (adjacent to convention, most of the video rooms are at)
+ Crowne Plaza (a block away, close to Civic Center)
+ Sainte Claire (across from Marriott)
+ Fairmont (across the street from Saint Claire, near restaurants like Johnny Rockets and others)
+ Ramada (free parking and breakfast, but have to walk a bit)

What you need to know:
+ Please be respectful to your roommates along with everyone else on the same floor.
+ Please do not try to crowd beyond the maximum occupancy of the hotel since it is a fire hazard.
[If you have any other suggestion, please voice it out.]

UPDATE 5/21/12 - I HAVE ONE co-ed $100 spot.

Details about me:  I'm a 35-year old male who will be attending Fanime for the second time.  I've gone to the Anime Expo from 1993 to 2010, and ALA 2011 and 2012, AM2, and Fanime in 2011.

My simple philosophy about rooms is that if you go, you should only have to pay the money requested and show up.  I'll take care of getting the rooms squared away.  In 2005, the Hilton at Anaheim said they were overbooked and I had to take a set of smaller rooms.  I managed to talk them into giving us a suite parlor to replace one of the rooms for no extra cost. 

I've also led a suite full of otaku at AX 2006, and I still look at that as the most fun I've had for a convention.  If I can get enough people together to do that again at another hotel, I would do it in a heartbeat. 

I'm bringing my Xbox360 with me.  I have several games including the latest WB Batman games, UMvC3, Halo Reach and Anniversary, and I have Rock Band 3 with over 600 available songs.

I'm called a fair and attentive leader, and I will be available for any questions.


You have rooms in two hotels?  Short answer is... yes.  I have the number of rooms I needed, but the rooms went fast and I had to make a couple of short-term compromises.  However, I am on a waitlist to move the Marriott rooms to the Hilton, and I have encouraging signs that it can be done.

What kind of roommates are you looking for?  My keyword is "respectful".  I do my best to make sure everyone is involved in the group if they want to be, but if not, that's perfectly fine.  All I ask is that you do your best to be respectful of the people around you.  If you're working on a cosplay, please clean up after you're done.  If you're an early person, please dress in the bathroom to keep the accursed Sun out of people's eyes.  If you're a late person, come in quietly so as not to disturb anyone else.  Also, please don't do elevator parties.  There's only 3 elevators and it would be better to have them running free.

Update:  3/18/12 - Are the rates per night or whole stay?  Whole stay.

When would payment be due?  I ask that payment be sent about a month prior to the convention.  This gives me time to turn payments into cash for the hotels, as well as weed out any last second drop-outs.  Besides, it makes it easier to keep other people's money separate from mine until necessary.

How do you like payment?  I prefer checks or money orders.  If cash is sent in the mail and the postman loses it, it's lost for both you and me.  Checks or money orders can be traced by the sender, or cancelled and retrieved, if necessary.

Do you accept Paypal?  I avoid it unless I have no other choice.  After a certain amount each month, Paypal starts taking out a percentage for processing.  It doesn't sound honest to ask for "$175 plus 3% for processing," right?

What do we do about food?  I attended Fanime last year, so I have a good idea of where to go and who to order from for a good evening.  I'll set up a list and ask you if you can make it to a non-mandatory group dinner for everyone to sit, meet, greet, and relax.

I am also offering a $30.00 buy in which I use to pick up snacks like chips, pretzels, water, Kool-Aid, and other simple snacks, as well as garbage bags, bars of soap, shampoo/conditioner, and couple of odds and ends.  With that buy in, you'll also get 4 boxes of Pocky, and 3 bottles of Ramune for your personal use.

I'm a girl and I don't want to room with guys.  Not a problem.  I have two girls only rooms currently set up.  Please PM or e-mail me about these rooms, and I'll give you the details.

I'm under 18... Can I still go?  Sure.  I'll take people as young as 14, but if you are between 14 and 17, I HAVE TO SPEAK TO YOUR PARENTS FIRST.  This is non-negotiable.  It sounds very over-bearing, but if you're a minor, you lie to your parent/guardian about where you are, and you're found with me and/or my friends, that's a potential kidnapping charge on the adult(s) you're found with, and that's a great way to ruin a convention.

What's the rule about drinking?  I don't mind social drinking or fun drinking, but I don't condone getting fall-down drunk.  Also, NO MINOR DRINKING, PERIOD.  If you're an adult who gives a minor alcohol, we'll have a few unkind words, and I won't hesitate to involve the authorities. 

Someone I'm rooming with is getting on my nerves...  Bring anything like this to me.  I'm a decent negotiator and I will handle all issues like this.  Few things can make a weekend more tense than people irritating each other and drawing lines in the sand.  Even if it doesn't get to fighting, you're giving the cold-shoulder to someone else, and everyone else in that room will get frustrated and caught up in it.  That's not fair to everyone in that situation.

"Um... I broke something in the room."  This should be a no-brainer, but be prepared to pay for it.  I also inspect rooms quickly before I check them out.  The reason for that is if these things are reserved with my credit card and something comes up broken, I have to pay for it.  I limit my risks by being careful.

What happens if I break "the rules?"  I escort you out.  Not out of the hotel or the convention, but out of my room block.  No refunds and no arguments.  You're out.

Any other questions, please feel free to ask.


Need a room:
+ Introduction: Caitlin Ford, and yes, I have a facebook.
+ Hotel Information: I am willing to stay where ever as long as it is cheap for me.
+ Requirements: Um, nothing really. Of course, since I am a girl, I want a girl room mate.
+ Contact: You could best reach me through facebook, then comes email. PM me for that.
+ Miscellaneous: Err, I don't know. I am a Catholic. I have never been to one of these before, this will be my first time, so I don't really know what to do. I know at these convention there are also people who play games, but I have never really done that. I only know the name of Zelda because my friend is REALLY into it.

That is all! Thank you very much!

Need A Room:

Name: Jenna Long (look up my facebook under "Beatrice Glitterbow" Lol!)
Age: 25
Little bit about myself: I have been going to cons since high school, and I can't get enough
of them. I love anime and do cosplay. I am friendly and fun, but am pretty quiet in the hotel
rooms and respectful of others.
What I am looking for: I would rather room with girls since it makes things less awkward, but
I don't mind rooming in a mixed-gender room. (I just don't wanna be the only girl!) I don't
mind sleeping on the floor if needed either. I need to room with others because I don't have
a huge amount of money right now but would still like to go!

PM me if you have more questions!

Rate: 80.00$
Spaces Available:  4
Room Type:  Two Bedded

E-Mail:  [email protected]
AIM: dragonssnare

Details about me:  Hi this is Hakoshi. Details, about me, well I'm a gamer I like Hetalia, pokemon, Homestuck and a variety of things. Me and my girlfriend are looking for 4 attendees to stay with us in out hotel room. I'm also looking for the people who stayed with me last time if you recognize my name let me know and there is a spot for you. We watched Durarara last year, if that helps jog the memory circuits.

Just a brush up on the rules. We prefer if you are 18 or over or 17 at the youngest. If you are 21 or over, we prefer if you enjoy drinking to do it outside of the hotel room. If anyone who wishes to attain a space in our room, please be comfortable with homosexuals, me and my girlfriend are in charge of the hotel and if you are not comfortable with homosexuality, please do not ask to stay with us. With that being said we will not be doing 'anything.' We will be respective of the others in the hotel room.

I also will be attending artist alley and will have art supplies, such as copics, a printer and a computer so if your are bothered by bunches of artist stuff in a corner, this is not the hotel for you. In addition I tend to get up early for artist alley I hope you will not be bothered by that as well. Also, a few people will need to sleep on the floor, please be aware of this, we can also do a bed switching thing, if people prefer. Last but not least, we prefer all females in our hotel room. If you are a male and would like to stay please send me a message and I can consult with my girlfriend and other attendees to see if we can work something out.

If you are interested in a space please send me an ask on tumblr. My tumblr is and if tumblr doesn't work for you, then you may email me, I check it daily given my phone gives me emails through txts.  I will be sure to get back to you within a reaosnable amount of time.


Need a room:

+ Introduction: My name is Tanya and I'm a 20(21 by con time) year old female. (Tanya Poston is my facebook) I do not smoke and I'm a really quiet person and no worries of me really drinking at the con. This is my first Fanime and I"m going to have to fly in from Idaho. If you are from around here I don't mind splitting a room with you since I probably know you anyways.

+ Hotel Information: From the 25-29th I plan on flying back the 29th. I can adjust this depending on getting my plane ticket.  I'd like to be close to the convention center so I can get the most out of my time. I don't want to spend a ton but I don't mind if it gets me where I want. I also don't mind sleeping on the floor. :3

+ Requirements: I'd prefer all females. Non smoking is a must. I don't care if you smoke, just not in the room.

+ Contact: PM, facebook, or cellphone. I can give you my number by PM or it's on my Facebook page.

+ Miscellaneous: Because I'm flying in I don't have any sort of vehicle and not used the public transit because Idaho really doesn't have those things. If you can be patient and show me the ropes, that'd be cool! I'd also like to room with people who may have similar interests as me. I don't want to be a wall flower the whole time. (I like homestuck, MLP, touhou, and lots of video game stuff. I also enjoy lolita fashion! )

Looking for a room.

Introduction: Hello, all.  My name is Nujtxeng Vang (new sang), and I'm looking for a room throughout the Fanime weekend.  I'm a 26 male from Sacramento, CA.  I'm currently attending Sacramento City College but have graduated from UC Davis with a degree in Neurobiology.  I'll be arriving early Friday morning (perhaps even on Thursday evening depending on the hotel cost) and be staying until the early evening of Monday.  I've attended a few conventions (gaming and anime); however, it will be my first time coming to Fanime.  I'm excited and looking forward to the experience.

Additionally, I don't smoke and don't drink.  I bathe daily (as weird as that sounds).  People say I'm a pretty quiet guy, but I do enjoy talking.  But if the situation calls for me to not intrude, then I'm all for being respectful and keeping my distance.  I love gaming and anime - so much so that I'm trying to start a club at my community college.  As such, as a representative of the organization, it obligates me to be diligent and professional at times.  I only share this information because I hope it reflects well of my character - again, being respectful, polite, and considerate while trying to have fun.  My attendance to Fanime will, in part, involve me doing a little press coverage so that I can bring the experience back to the students and share with them the wonderful community that is Fanime.

Hotel information: So long as it's in the vicinity of the convention, then the location of the hotel doesn't matter to me.  I'll have my own means of transportation anyway (i.e. my car).  As a side note, I'm more than willing to provide transportation for roommates to go out and eat, to the convention, back to the hotel, etc. if I, myself, am attending one of those locale.  But back to the hotel situation - I would prefer to room with non-smokers and non-drinkers.  I don't mind rooming with males and/or females nor do I mind sleeping on the floor.  In essence, I just need a place to crash.

Costs: I think $80 - $100 seems reasonable.  If it's slightly over $100, then shoot me a PM.  I'm more than willing to consider.

Requirements: It would be helpful if I get to know my roommates a little so that I don't do anything that would offend them.  Like I mentioned before, I'm all for being respectful and considerate.  But don't feel as if you shouldn't approach me.  If you want to have a conversation about my day at Fanime or about me, in general, then I will be more than willing to respond.

Contact: I do have a Facebook, but I hardly keep up with it.  It's best to contact me via email ([email protected]).  If you want to personally reach me to go over the hotel arrangement, then I can provide my phone number upon request.

Miscellaneous: I don't cosplay, but perhaps will someday.  I will be doing some press coverage for my club on the side - interviews, photography, and video recording.  Some of my favorite anime titles include Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Steins Gate, Code Geass, Full Metal Alchemist, Tengan Toppa Gurren Lagann, Spirited Away, Summer Wars, and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time.  As far as gaming goes, I love fighting games, RPGs, and action-adventures (e.g. Street Fighter, Final Fantasy, Shadow of the Colossus).



Most Impressive.




Roommates Wanted:

+ Introduction: hey there uhh. I don't really know what to write hereee ahaha. But I've got a group of 3 artist alley girls looking for some roommates to get our costs down. I'm 19, and the other girls will be 18 and 20 respectively by the convention. Personally, this will be my first time at Fanime, though I am in the middle of my 5th year of AAing.

+ Hotel Information: Thursday-Monday (4 nights, checkout Monday morning) at the Wyndham. It's a little ways out, but there is a convention shuttle that runs regularly according to the website. The room has 2 double beds, one of which we can offer up to whoever rooms with us.

+ Costs: $66-101 per person, depending on how many people we end up with.

+ Requirements: Looking for 1-3 more people. We're not really pickyyy about anything. Guys and girls are welcome, we're fine with minors or someone older than us as well. Just know that I am 19, and the room is in my name, so if you plan on drinking it's going to have to be somewhere else, sorry! ;u;

+ Contact: email preferred ([email protected]), but I'll do my best to check for PMs every day as well.

+ Miscellaneous: Errr as one of my roommates has put it, "people who think glomping strangers is a good idea need not apply." ;u; Also to note, we do have tables to run and will be making a genuine effort to do at least a little of that sleep thing, so if you're planning on partying all night and staggering in (loudly) at 5 am, probablyyy not a good choice.

and if you'd like to check our art out/stalk us a bit to get to know more about us before contacting me, head on over to



I'm staying in a room at the Fairmount with a few friends but I'd feel more comfortable with another girl roommate. So far there are three guys and me in the room. Since I'm not in charge of the room I am not sure of the rates yet. It's from Thursday to Monday. There is a king size bed and a rollaway. I'm gonna try and bring a sleeping bag for when I can't wrangle the bed, and I don't mind sharing it with you!

Drinking and smoking is acceptable, but no smoking in the room.

Looking for 17-27, 21+ preferred.

Email me at [email protected] if you are interested.

+ Introduction:
My name is Crystal, and I'm a newcomer to Fanime. I'm 21 years old, female, and I've been cosplaying for about about 3 1/2 years. I still consider myself an amatuer cosplayer, since I can only afford so much needed materials... The only con I've ever been to was SacAnime, which is a bi-annual convention in Sacramento that I'm always sure to attend. If I do go to Fanime, I'll probably only be there for Friday and Saturday, and maybe Sunday.

+ Hotel Info:
I just need it to be in walking distance from the con. Like I said it'll likely only be for Friday and Saturday. I'm not sure how much money I'll have by then, but for now I'll say the most I'll be able to do might be about $60-$70. As I mentioned, I probably won't be there for the whole weekend.

+ Requirements:
It doesn't matter if you're male or female. I don't smoke, but I won't mind if you do.

+ Contact
you can find me on Facebook: or email me at: [email protected] or [email protected]

+ Miscellaneous:
I'm not even 100% sure if I'll go, but if I can, it will likely only be for two days, three if I'm lucky. If you need a roommate for Friday and Saturday, just send me a message via email or Facebook for more information.

About me: I am a super awesome 23 year old female I've been going to fanime for about 6 years now....

Hotel Information:The Marriot Thursday-Monday but I'm still not 100% sure I can swing Thursday. I'm gonna wait and see how many people we get and decide from there. The price also depends on the amount of people I end up getting. With 4 people the price will be about $105 but if we get more it could be half that. I have always ended up with 8+ people but who knows right? So I guess you should be ok with that if you're looking into rooming with me.

What we are looking for: We don't care if you're male or female. I would prefer 18+,(but willing to make exceptions) I'm not trying to be in charge of anyone. 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, though you should know we're night people.

Random Information: You will have to either be willing to share a bed or sleep on the floor some nights.

If you have any questions or are interested in rooming with us you can just message me here.
