Title: Hotel Booking next Week (~1/16)
Post by: TC_X0_Lt_0X on January 10, 2019, 04:37:24 PM
Just a heads-up that emails for Hotel Booking went out. Mine says 1/16 @ 7am.


Good Hunting to all of you.

You wont be charged until closer to con, some hotels take deposit up to 3 weeks before check in.

Managed to book a room right away, no site crashes or anything! Either they've learned how to handle the traffic, or there's not as many people booking rooms right now.

I'm surprised things went as flawlessly as they did! Got our first choice hotel with the days we want without a hitch~ c:

It took me longer to get to the site than it did for me to book the room, lol.

Gotta hand it to Fanime and CMR staff this year :)

Well, I slept through my alarm for 7am, and still managed to get a Hilton room for the whole weekend, around 10am.  :D

No issues here with 7am reservation for the Hilton (I'm local but a couple of my sisters are attending for the weekend this year and I'm looking forward to having a room to stash cosplay in / relax).

Reading on Facebook it looks like people were bum rushing the housing site this morning as the system was allowing them to book rooms without a priority window.  However it appears Fanime has been taking care of the issue and canceling reservations made by people who did so outside their booking window, then fast tracking the waitlist for the people who had their early times filled due to the illegal bookings.

They gave me 1/17, but it looks like the all the good ones are taken. Maybe I'll just room with somebody if things don't turn out.

How do we waitlist? I booked one but want to waitlist for another hotel.

I'm wondering this as well. Last year you could select waitlist next to the hotel. If memory serves, it would only allow it once you made a reservation, but I could be wrong. This year I don't see the option at all.

Call the housing hotline and ask to be put on the wait list for the hotel/dates you want.

Hello everyone! This will be my first time staying at a hotel that’s a drive away from the convention and was wondering if the event provides shuttle services for the attendees who booked with their hotels? Specifically the Courtyard at the Marriott. Thank you!

All hotels booked through Fanime's Housing will have free shuttle rides provided. They will have more information when it gets closer to the con dates.
