Waitlisting for Hotels
« on: January 25, 2013, 10:55:40 AM »

Hello ! Quick question about hotel waitlisting - I recall from last year that, to request to be added to the waitlist, we just email the Fanime housing email with our request, yes ? Is this still true this year, and if so, should we expect a response of acknowledgement from Fanime housing ?

Thanks much. :)

I'm also wondering about this, as I emailed Fanime Housing to ask some questions (as well as ask to be put on a waitlist) but haven't gotten a response yet.

Make sure you have an active hotel reservation when you ask to be put on the waiting list. I found this out when they responded to my email asking to be put on it and I had no idea also. It's info that should be posted on the main Site imo.

Yes, I only found this out too when they replied to my email. So I suppose that answers my question ! *salutes*

Here's a question for previous attendees, how many of you actually got your wait list approved? Just wondering what my chances are.

Last year, I got two Marriott rooms moved to the Hilton. I got on the waitlist about 3 or 4 hours after hotels opened, and they emailed me that I got my request in April I believe.

April for me, too. I assume that's because the cancellation without penalty date is at the end of April, so all those people who hoarded rooms drop them because they can't go/can't fill them.

I wanted a doubled bedded room at the Fairmont and called Fanime Housing an hour after hotels opened and got my request filled from single to double in April as well.

A lot of people that want to get a room want to stay at the Marriott or Hilton because its in the con and they don't have to walk anywhere else.

I'm so sorry if you guys are on waiting list because I got a room at the Fairmont and I live in San Jose. My wife and I want to get a room at Fanime because we want to get the full experience of the Con.

Excuse me, but what exactly are you trying to say? It's quite obvious people want to stay at the Hilton and Marriott for obvious reasons.

Now, you got a room at the Fairmont. Congrats. I myself got a room at the Sainte Claire, but got waitlisted to add Thursday night to my stay.

Irrelevant post is irrelevant

Hey I just got waitlisted for a king room at Hilton (rollaway subject to availability) and a no-rollaway king at the Marriot. What do you think my chances are of getting them?

How do you waitlist for Hotels? I already book a hotel at the fairmount but I want to either update my room at the fairmount for a suite that they are offering in the Fanime website or stay at the marriot with two beds.

Email fanime housing and give them a brief clear paraphrased description of ur situation and desired request. No promises though.

Would someone confirm the exact Fanime Housing address? Would it be housing @ fanime.com?
