Looking for a Room

Howdy I'm Brian 28 yrs old, I consider myself to be both relaxed and aware. This will be my 2nd trip to Fanime after having a great time last year.

I plan on attending 3 - 4 days, with the Monday pending if the room is still booked. Looking primarily to get in with someone at the Hilton, but any hotel within walking distance will be adequate.

I'm a pretty clean guy, keep my things in my space, and am considerate of whatever sleep schedules my roomies are keeping. I have been on both sides of the roommate coin in terms of buying in and selling space. Largely positive experiences all around from staying with both ladies and/or gentlemen.
I have no particulars in terms of requirements outside of everyone respecting each other and their personal property.

You can message me here on the forums or at [email protected]

Price is not a huge concern, as I planned on getting a room myself, hotels just got eaten up before even my priority time today.


Updated post - We got a room, and now we NEED ROOMMATES!

Hi there! We're a group of 3 anime artists from Los Angeles in our early 20s. This will be our first Fanime! We're not very loud or crazy, but we're friendly :> Since we're going to be at artist alley, we'll be pretty tired most of the time, but we'll still hang out and chill if you're down.

Hotel Information:

  • SpringHill Suites San Jose Airport, 10 Skyport Drive
  • Not within walking distance
  • On shuttle schedule :D
  • Check-in 25th, check-out 29th
  • You'll most likely get a key card
(We also have a car,  so you can get a ride if it goes along with our schedule)

We're looking for 2 people who either know each other and don't mind sharing the bed OR 2 people who are willing to rotate bed and floor OR people who don't mind the floor all 4 nights (and can pay less).

Please be respectful of everyone's personal property, generally be mature, and no smoking/drugs/drinking/etc in the room so that we don't get kicked out. Prefer females, but we're flexible and LGBT-friendly.

It will be $110-140 a person for all 4 nights depending on whether we're adding 1 or 2 people. Please use Paypal or Venmo ahead of time and don't be a flake :>

Shoot me an email at [email protected] if you're interested or have any questions at all!

We're taken!


Roommate Wanted

Hey hey, I'm Maribelle! I'll be 22 in March, and this will be my 4th (5th?) time attending Fanime. This will also be my third experience with hotels, but my first time booking by myself. I managed a single queen bed, no rollaway, at the Pacific Motor Inn (formerly Ramada San Jose) from Friday to Monday.

I'm looking for a single roommate, two if someone doesn't mind sleeping on the floor. I'm also only offering the space for Friday and Saturday night, as I will have someone staying over on Sunday night. I'd like to be paid in cash, $35/night for one roomate, $23/night (per person) for two roommates. You also get a room card.

I prefer people with a personality that can range from "I'm capable of conducting business with adult strangers" to "I snapchat my best friend while I'm on the toilet." People who can't get weird now and then make me shy and anxious to act myself. I'm not great at starting conversations, but if you talk to me I'll keep it going. :3 I'm also a bit of a night owl. If you don't mind me staying up kind of late (1am - 2am) and keeping to myself, I won't mind the same of you. And of course, the general "please respect my stuff, don't be noisy during dead hours, etc."

You can message me on here, email me at [email protected], and/or specifically request any of my social media (FB, Twitter, Tumblr, Snapchat, IG). If you're interested, please hit me up so that I can get to know you better before the con!

Request fulfilled! Thanks B! x3


When you feel like finding a room this way is more painless than having to book yourself. :-X

Room Needed

22-year-old Alyssa here. My interests mostly lie into gaming/web/art, but I've been open to some anime/manga from time to time. This will be my 6th Fanime, and I'll be cosplaying most of the weekend.

Hotel info and req:

  • Looking for a room from Friday - Monday (Thursday would be nice too, but Friday is fine). Hyatt/Westin/Fairmont/Ramada preferred but Hilton/Marriott and the farther hotels with the shuttles are OK.
  • Budget can go up to $250 if needed. The lower the better, of course! I can also help chip in for food and drink if that's arranged.
  • Bed or floor doesn't matter. I can bring a sleeping bag and a folding mattress when needed.
  • Female roommates preferred. I'm open for co-ed, however.
  • Would definitely like a card key, if possible.
Contact: Either PM me here or send an email to [email protected].

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Found a room! Thanks so much! <3


Need a room:
+ Introduction: My name is Rigo. I am a 24 year old hispanic male and an avid anime fan. This is my fourth Fanime and I want to meet new people and possibly make new friends.
+ Hotel Information: I am looking to check in the 25th and check out the 29th. So basically the whole convention if possible. Money budget for me is about 100-150 unless there are more roomates i am open to negotiate division of pay shares. I can also do the 26th-29th if that is better? I am also looking for a hotel that is near or supported by the vonvention shuttle schedule.
+ Requirements: I really have no issues. The one real thing I ask is that maybe the person I stay with is at least 21 or over in case drinks are brought and if they are ok with me being out late lol. It's fanime and we all know it's a late night blast!
+ Contact: [email protected] is my personal email. If you need my social media then hit me up and let me know.

Hi, my name is Jessica. I'm mellow and quiet, so you won't have to worry about me making much noise at night.

Hotel and roommates:

I am currently looking for a hotel near the convention (Westin preferred, but I'm ok with Hilton or Marriot or any other place close by). Most likely, I'll check in on May 25th in the evening, and leave on the 29th. Also am looking for two other people to share a room with. I have no issues with sharing with males or females; I have done both in the past. 


Costs of sharing the room may run from $100-$150, but depending on how many roommates I can find, I am hoping to keep it equal between us.


I prefer mature, respectful roommates who won't keep the light on all night. No partying in the room, no smoking or drinking; that's what we have downtown San Jose and the nearby bars for. Be considerate of the other people in the room, as well as their personal belongings and space.


To contact me, either pm me or email me at [email protected].

Found room/mates! See you at FanimeCon 2017!


Need a room:
+ Introduction: Hello everyone! My Name is Steve and I've been going to Fanime since 05. I'm pretty easy going, and if it makes me more trust worthy I'd like to note that I'm a RN! Either way, looking for a spot in someone's room. Please hit me up at my email: [email protected]  or FB: https://www.facebook.com/MaciasSteven
+ Hotel Information: I would love to stay with a group that is in either the fairmount, hilton, or marriot of possible! But beggars cant be choosers.
+ Requirements: Honestly, I'd wouldnt mind sleeping on the ground of need be, but a bed would be nice. Money isnt a issue. Just no weird people...lets be honest?

EDIT: Found a room! Thanks so much! <3



Hi, my name is Dave. I'm a "retired" vet and I'm very well organized and MAY have my service dog with me, along with all my cosplays. I've attended fanime for quite some time and I will be flying in, so the first night i'll probably just unwind and get to know everyone. I am tatted up, and it seems to scare people from time to time, but im just a mellow guy.

Hotel and roommates:

I am currently WAIT LISTED around 3 hotels near the con (Hilton San Jose, Pacific Motor Inn (formerly Ramada San Jose), San Jose Marriott), but once I secure it, I will need a(n) roommate(s). I spoke with a rep of each hotel and will get a room, just have to wait near april for people to cancel and such. Happens every year, so I'm guaranteed a room. Check in / Arrival Date: 05/26/2017. Departure Date: 05/29/2017.


Cost of sharing the room will depending on how many people will be in the room with capacity respected obviously. Will be split down the middle with proof of receipt. Depending on the hotel, it can cost between $97.00 ~ $140 A NIGHT + taxes (b00). So, split that either 2~3 ways. I have paypal as well, but pp fees will be on you.


Don't be childish. Don't feed my dog anything (if I decide to bring her with me). Do not bring any sorts of drugs period. Outside of the hotel is all on you, but if you disrespect me, my dog, and/or the other room mate, you will go out faster than a bounced check. Clean after/ pick up after yourself. You're a grown person. If you smoke, please go to the designated area. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, PLEASE USE DEODORANT. DO NOT TOUCH anyones belongings unless you get permission period.  If you're underage and you want to drink, don't do it in my room period.


To contact me, either pm me or email me at [email protected] for more info and for a soft introduction.

Sorry for those who contacted me. Will not be attending Fanime


Need a room for Thursday only!
+ Introduction: Introductions huh? Well my name is Michele, I'm 33 years old. and I've been flying out to Fanime from Colorado for about 6 years now?  I tend to be quiet (shy) I don't smoke, I like cute stuff and I talk about my cat a lot.

+ Hotel Information: I only need a room for Thursday night.  The Fairmont would be preferred since my room is there as well! Saves me on having to lug my luggage too far.

+ Requirements: Nothing much, I would prefer a room that isn't too crowded.  Bed space would be nice, but I should be fine if you throw me a pillow and blanket.  Female only room is also preferred

+ Contact:  You can reach me through the PM system on this forum, or email me at [email protected]

Im 38. Been attending Fanime since 97.

Most Impressive.



Hi, my name is Leora and I'm 20. I'm originally from California but I live in Denver now. Fanime used to be my home con and I've been going for a few years.

Any hotel within walking distance/ shuttle is ok. I would like to be there the whole weekend. I'll be clean and considerate of anyone staying in the same room. It's important to me that people's personal belongings are respected. I'd like to have a key card if possible. Don't mind the genders/anyone in the room.
You can pm me or email me at [email protected]

Room needed - Thursday through monday or anywhere in between.

- Hey guys, my name is Christian (People just call me CT), 25 years old (white male - hey it matters to some people). I've gone to fanime every year for 5 years now, and i usually wait last-minute to get a room, figured I'd get a jump start on it this year. I keep to myself for the most part, not a very social creature, so I shouldn't be too much of a disturbance. I don't smoke, I do drink but not heavily, and just wine. Not going to be that raging alcoholic guest. I'm a huge Monster Hunter fan, so if anyone has their DS' we'll get along just fine.

- Im looking for a hotel like the Hilton, Mariott, Westin, or Fairmont. Something right at the con, I have a suit of armor (im the portal turret guy) that's quite cumbersome, so walking far is not going to work out.

- No significant requirements, I'll sleep on the floor if i have to, wouldn't be the first time.

- You can contact me via Email: [email protected], Skype: Phemeto, or Facebook: Christian Kapis, or Discord @Phemeto#9310

Feel free to ask me any questions or concerns, I'm glued to my phone for work.

*edit* still looking


Hello. My name is Ken, I'm 35 years old black male light skinned who is a gamer at heart, and an anime fan. it has been a long 3 years since I have not been to fanime, or share a room with someone. Well anyways, I'm looking to share a hotel room in hilton or any hotel that is close to Fanime or walking distance. I'm also looking to making new friends as well if possible. I'm willing to pay $100-$150 to share the bill. I don't mind sleeping on the floor using an air matress. I'm going to fanime by myself, and I have no one to hang out with or play video games or cosplay with. If anyone is looking to let me share a room with them, let me know please. I'm also looking for someone who is trustworthy. I don't want anyone to steal from my stuff without permission. Well that's all for now. Please contact me on private message if you can. Or you can contact me on facebook or through Skypt. Just tell me who you are, and why you are pming me. Thanks for reading.

I found a room at the fairfield inn and suites with two queen beds. If I jumped on it and took the reservation would anyone want to room with me and split the costs? It's about three miles from the con and there's a shuttle that goes directly to fanime. I would get the room from thursday to monday.

update: I do have the room. it's two queen beds. looking for roommates who will be clean and respectful, not creepy, will pay on time, not super messy, won't bring the party in the room, please wear deodorant and shower, don't steal other people's crap. gender is irrelevant.

pm me or email me @ [email protected]

I am still in need of a room

Hello there, my name is Alex, huge Transformers, One Piece, and general anime fan with emphasis on mechs, so if you know Super Robot Wars we're automatically family at that point. A cool, chill, flexible, and open minded person with an occasionally goofy sense of humor. Facebook isn't really too exciting since I'm a busy person, but if interested https://www.facebook.com/DoskoiPanda

Plan on coming up Friday the 26th evening after I get off work and stay till Monday the 29th.  Money isn't an option if anything within walking distance is still available, or shuttle service is ok as well if not walking distance.  And am still willing to pay for the whole weekend stay even though coming up on Friday to help reduce cost for everyone

It will be my wife and me so a spot for 2 as well as preferably a bed spot for my wife since she's pregnant, thus the hopeful walking distance so she doesn't have to walk too far.  Also I don't mind a floor spot if someone has bed priority already, but for sure would need a bed for my wife.  Also doing a foam megaman/robot cosplay so a small amount, but not too much, space/area for storage would be helpful as well as a heads up

Contact you can reach me via email or FB Messenger is best way, then we can exchange numbers and go from there, my email is [email protected] and again FB is https://www.facebook.com/DoskoiPanda

Also I have references from previous roommates if anyone needs to verify that we for sure are sane, considerate, reliable, and of course one of the most important con-funk free
