I registered 3 other people under myself shortly after the Twitter post for reg appeared on the first day. Each one using their actual info, Including email addresses. We all got the email for the same date and time. Checking with one to see if the confirmation numbers are the same...they aren't.

Interesting.

It looks like all that is needed to book the room is the attendee's last name and their registration number. You can access this info for your group by logging into the registration website. I imagine everyone in the group has the same booking window.

Yeah, was just about to post this.  In the Fanime Hotels e-mail it states:

"If you have registered any guests, it is your responsibility to inform them of this booking window. If they reserve a room separately from you, their Confirmation Code and Last Name will be required to complete their reservation."

Sounds like everyone in a group will have the same window as the group leader and it is the responsibility of the group leader to distribute the information to their group.  It also sounds like each person who would like to book a room will use THEIR individual confirmation code and THEIR last name.

Of course no one will know for sure until that first window opens up.

Additionally your original Confirmation of Registration e-mail / receipt should list the confirmation number of each person in your group in the section after your "Profile" in an area titled "Registration Summary" - there should be one for each person.  It should say -

"Registration Summary -- (CONFIRMATION CODE) (NAME ON BADGE)" (Group Leader)
(List of leader's membership and rest of group along with badge cost for each)
(Table with Fees, Payments, and Payment Date / Type)

"Registration Summary -- (CONFIRMATION CODE) (NAME ON BADGE)" (Second Member)
(Their membership and registration fees)

"Registration Summary -- (CONFIRMATION CODE) (NAME ON BADGE)" (Third Member)
(Their membership and registration fees)

etc.

No problem.  Keep in mind I'm NOT staff or anything, that's just the way I'm interpreting the information in the hotels e-mail and the earlier conformation receipt e-mail.

I just got mine too, however, I thought it was 1 confirmation per badge?? How does it work if your a group leader? My date is 24th at 6 am >. <

I'm wondering the same thing, I'm a group leader and I have a couple of other people in my group that will need to get their own room, but I'm the only person who received the email about hotel booking window.

The 24th at 6am though, that's a good time slot!!  Mine isn't until the 25th at 12pm, I hope there are still rooms available :/

You and me both! I live too far away to not have a hotel room! Add to that, the regular rates are way out of my budget.  :o Fingers crossed!

I got an email, too. Though I'm not really planning on booking a room myself this year, still nice to see the emails being sent out. XD

24th @9am unfortunately haven't found any roommates so I'm not sure if I want to risk booking it. I guess I can always cancel but this is my first time even considering a hotel room so I'm way too new to this.

OtakuAngel87

well it never hurts to book it and look for roommates later on. There is bound to be people looking for a room who couldn't reserve one themselves. As u said u could always cancel it. Since you have a really good time block and considering a room, id recommend going for it. They don't charge your card until you check out

The 25th at noon, paid for my registration right after the hotel announcement.

I hope there's still connected hotels available at that time. I wonder what my odds are?

Got the same day, the 25th, at 9am. Personally, when I saw the time slot, I immediately went to register at my second choice (The Westin), probably the most convenient hotel (just across the street) besides the connected Hilton and Marriott hotels and a bit cheaper as well than either of those at the full rate.

since the priority registration was based on badge purchase dates, u might get an email sometime this weekend, but due to late registered date, u might have to wait for the general public reservation period.  However don't quote me I'm not staff this is all an assumption, hopefully you r still able to reserve a room

I might book a room after all just in case, cause I'm feeling super picky this year, compared to last year's room experiences. :X (I realize now that shoving 7-8 people into a room really isn't my thing, no matter the costs. But if I get my own room then I can choose how many people I want staying with me...)

And I can always cancel the room if I end up not needing it. But if I can find enough people to room with me by the 25th, I guess this'll be my first time booking. >_<"
