And here we go again. How was your hotel stay this year?

Hotel: Westin (Saint Claire)

Pros:
Check-in and check-out went smoothly. Yay!
Still love that tall shower head  :)
Heater and airco worked wonderfully.

Weird coincidence:
Every time I was in the elevator, someone else went to my floor as well.

Questions:
How does the dial in the fridge work? Do you turn it to make the temp colder, or do you leave it alone for the coldest temp?


Cons:

No HBO on the TV...has it always been this way?
The king bed felt smaller than it did last year. I know that I'm not growing any taller.
I understand the need for a security guard in the lobby, but he gave me the vibe that he wanted to follow me all the way to my room (he didn't, but still that was weird).

Come back next year? Sure, why not.

An eating challenge on Stage Zero? Count me in.

But what kind of legal issues could Fanime end up dealing with?

Ideas and Suggestions / Re: Please, Do NOT Do “Silver Island”
« on: June 03, 2019, 10:24:56 PM »
I'd say that Silver Island was underwhelming. An okay idea, with not-so-good execution.

- The "advance tickets" idea, I'm fine with. Keep that.
- Starting the events at 8pm felt weird. Especially for the screening rooms.
- Night Market: you can go to Artists Alley and get a similar, if not the same, effect. It didn't even have a Fakku booth XD
- Casino Night looked cool at least. The table games seemed to be more Vegas casino style rather than Indian casino style.
- Adult Game Room: meh.
- Didn't bother watching the stage shows. No further comment.
- The HMV show was run just fine...but something about the line for it, I didn't like...

Overall, I say bring the Hentai events back to "the mainland." Take back the Marriott rooms, lol. But what should take its place at the DoubleTree, you ask?  ;D

Huh, I thought all of the hentai related events were shipped off to the DoubleTree this year.

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 :)

Big Event Showcase / Re: the masquerade is a huge joke
« on: June 16, 2018, 10:16:14 PM »
Regarding the hosts...if you're gonna cosplay as the middle finger potatoes of Pop Team Epic, you need to be raunchy or crude and unpredictable, to say the least.
The hosts were way too tame as far as I could tell. They could have chosen a different duo to work as >_>

There was only one guy selling tacos. Should have been more. Especially since word is that La Vic's took a nose dive in quality.

I presume you mean the La Vics on San Carlos, right? (I've been there before and liked it, but have yet to visit the one on Santa Clara St). And thanks for the heads up.

I've heard of people having the same thing happen to them at the Fairmont last year.

What is going on?

13
My work in progress. If a cosplayer does not like a photo that I took, I'll take it down upon request (send me a message for the request).

Straightforward enough, just share your experience with the hotel you stayed at this year.

Hotel: Westin (Saint Claire) on Market and San Carlos

Pros:

1 Smooth check in and check out.
2 A fridge
3 Awesome shower that goes above my head. Yay for not having to bend, squat or lean XD
4 They got me a room on the 2nd floor. Sweet.

Cons:

1 What's taking so long for them to email my receipt that I asked for? XD
2 Tiny elevator
3 One night, my key card didn't work on the door from the stairs to my floor, forcing me to use the elevator...come on...

Would I come back?
Very likely :)

Side note, my first choice for several years, the Ramada/Pacific Motor Inn is already sold out for next year's Fanime 0_0

I got the 1pm slot today. After booking my room, I made a phone call to get my confirmation through. It all worked out.

Yesterday at YumeCon I entered a Smash 4 tourney. I made it to the top...of the Losers Bracket and got knocked out by 3-1 (it was best of five games at this point)  ;D Oh well.
