So, I went to Trivago (hotel booking site) and I set the dates for May 27th-May 31st set the address to the Convention center, and set the distance to under 2 miles away.. and I did get some results, and the prices are about equal to the Fanime housing prices. So people may have some luck with that. Of course being further from the convention center is a pain. But public transport and such may make it a bit more manageable.
Also hopefully the roommate thread will start seeing more activity soon.
I did the same as soon as the Fairmont and Westin booked up on the 25th. I have a room at the Holiday Inn and wait list request for three closer hotels, but I also booked a hotel on 2nd street outside of the fanime site just to be safe.
Personally I think this was the worst booking year so far. Such a major lack of communication and information.
