Question: Will there be two-bed rooms available at the Hilton for Thursday night? I'm pretty sure there will be, but last year my friend had an issues getting a Day Zero room, so I wanted to make sure that would be available.

If you get in on registering more or less when the reg site opens and get all the days you need at once, you -should- have no issue getting what you need. The key is to not delay, and do not expect that the Hilton or Marriott will be available after day 1 because they are the popular hotel.

Still a little paranoid, because if my mom doesn't get Hilton rooms on Day Zero, I can't be here on the forums to ask questions until at least 3, and by then, it could be too late. I'm sure it'll be fine, but I don't like not being in control of a situation.

I believe this maximum occupancy only applies to regular hotel rooms. I think for suites the maximum occupancy is more like six? (I've never gotten a suite, so don't quote me on this. I'm only estimating based on what I think I remember from past forums. :P)

Maximum occupancy usually goes with the amount of beds, despite it being a suite or not. A Junior Suite at the Marriott can only "occupy" four, as it only has a king bed and a couch bed.

You can technically fit three average-sized people in a king if you like being close, but it's not encouraged to stuff your rooms and have people sleep on the floor and such, for Fire-safety reasons.

For Thursday, we will have a room with two beds available.

I'm not sure if this information is available, but will hotel prices be much different from last year?
Prices will remain around the same. =)

I don't actually know, but I believe that it is listed as 4.

Ah, gotcha. Good to know. Thanks for the correction!

I emailed the ramada about their suite the other day and didn't get a difinitive answer. first they said that the suite was part of the fanime block out, then when i asked if they knew anything about the pricing for the year, they told me it was unavailable.

.... will it be available this year?

Unfortunately, I don't believe that we have suites at the Ramada.

DEBIT CARD POLICY: If you choose to use a debit card for the payment of your room, the Hotel will take an authorization for the amount of room and tax for your entire stay plus the applicable deposit of up to $100.00 per room/per night. These funds will be temporarily unavailable in your checking account. FanimeCon Housing recommends the use of cash or a credit card if you wish to have access to all of the funds in your checking account throughout the weekend.

Does this get charged when we book the room or when we check in? I asked this in another thread as well but I wasn't sure if more people were wondering the same thing here.

Will there be a wait list for Thursday, May 24th for the Hilton? It looks like that one is already sold out before the launch. If there is, I would like to be on it please. Thank you!

I just BARELY missed out on the room I wanted at a different hotel so I booked at the Double Tree instead, should I email Housing and ask to be put on a waiting list just in case rooms open up closer to the con date?

I hope I did that right! I couldn't find an option anywhere on the registration form for booking two rooms so I went through it twice and booked them individually. Not how I would have preferred doing it but it seemed to work.

I was hoping to get a room at the Hilton but they sold out already! I thought I saw it on the list but when I checked again, it wasn't listed anymore. :O I really wanted a room at the Hilton, too. :C I managed to get a king bedded room w/ rollaway bed at the Marriott, though, but still.

Remember that at the DoubleTree, you will be surrounded by Steampunks. =-)
