Room Needed:
+ Introduction: Hey, I'm Haiden. I'm going to be 19 when the convention rolls around. I first attended Fanime in 2015, didn't attend the next two years due to personal reasons, and just got back to attending last year.
+ Hotel Information: I'm hoping to be able to do Friday night-Monday morning.
+ Requirements: I would prefer that whoever I room with be between 18-30 (I would just feel more comfortable if I wasn't rooming with someone who was much older than me). I'm also fine rooming with either just guys or both guys and girls, I don't have a preference. I have no preference in room rules.
+ Contact: you can message me here or email me at
+ Miscellaneous: I am a trans man so you and whoever else is in the room should be comfortable with that.

Looking to take over a reservation.

Hello! My name is Jenaye. My friend and I was out of luck this year. We weren't fast enough to get a hotel reservation this time and are now looking to take over a reservation. Any distance away is fine. This will be our 4th time going to the Fanime. We are looking forward to it so please contact me if you have a reservation to give away.
-Staying Fri-Mon

Contact me by or a dm on here :) I respond very quickly and kindly.

Thank you~

Room Needed:
+ Introduction: Hi! My name is Amanda. I'm looking for a place to stay for myself (34F) and a friend of mine(35M) within walking distance of the con center as we weren't able to get a hotel this year. This will be my 10th Fanime, my friends' 5th Fanime. We are both cosplayers but none of our costumes take up a large amount of room.
+ Hotel Information: I would prefer a hotel within walking distance of the con, so Fairmont, westin, hyatt, but not opposed to hotels attached to con center either.
+ Requirements: Both of us would be staying from thurs-mon. Just would need one room key for the both of us, we're fine with floorspace just as long as we're able to use an air mattress that's about queen sized. Would prefer a non-party room as we don't really party. We tend to stay out late, but are quiet when we come in.
+ Contact: Please email me at or send a PM

My name is Nicholas. I'm male, 32, and looking for a room at any of the hotels within walking distance of the convention. I'm on the quiet side, but generally looking to meet new people and make new friends.

I will be wearing rather bulky, warm cosplays (they do not take up a ton of room when broken down, and are only bulky when worn), so anything not within walking distance isn't an option. I'll be crossplaying, in case that would be an issue (Letty Whiterock and Yamame Kurodani from Touhou Project for anyone curious). I'm very into retro computers, games, and technology.

Ideally I'd like to stay from Thursday night to Sunday night, but I can stay through Monday if that makes things easier. Please contact me at if you'd like to work something out.

Ac hotel 106/night Friday- Monday. So far we have 2 people. Total for all 3 nights 318. Any questions let me know. This is 6 blocks from the con.

Looking to fill up this room it will be split among how many people we get in this room. This is a no party room.

You will pay the day of con. You get access once the room is paid off.
I have a hotel room at
 AC hotel: 350 West Santa Clara Street
San Jose, CA  95113
Cost: 106/night
6 blocks away

I need roommates! I am in my 20's but I have been going to this convention for about 15 years, I love to have fun and keep it real. just a little bit about me.


No drinking (or coming in drunk), No DRUGS, No weed, E-cigs out side of the room, no smoking, everyone must be respectful, NO STEALING. no minors.

This room is just realistically for sleeping, we all want to have fun at the convention and don't want to worry about causing problems. but biggest rule of all; HAVE FUN!
I will try to pack the room pretty full. my guess is 6-8 people. depending on what everyone else says. honestly I don't know how big these rooms are I have never stayed in this hotel before.

I need a room desperately!

+ Introduction:
I’m 23 years old(female), been to fanime for 5 years and want to make it 6 this year. I already bought my flight from Ohio to California and willing to spend $100-200 to room with a nice group of people. I am super chill and would like a bed rotation option due to medical problems. I don’t drink excessively and can pay cash upon arrival or via PayPal because I have a lot riding on arriving from across the country.

+ Hotel Information:
 Being at something close or connected to the convention center is ideal. I am willing to pay $100-200 from Friday-Monday morning. Willing to sleep in the same bed as a male as well if that is alright.

+ Requirements:
Please do not steal my things. That’s all.

Introduction: My name is Olin Pritchard and I'm a 17 year old boy who desperately needs a place to stay.

Hotel Info: I won't be wearing big bulky armor but the closer the better I'm willing to spend up to 150$ on a place to stay with at least one roommate. I'd also apreciate it if I had a two bedroom hotel room. I'll be there from day 1 to 3 leaving on the evening of day 3.

Requiremets: No smoking, drinking, uninvited guests, or stealing my stuff.

Please contact me through PMs on my facebook page Olin Pritchard. Hope to hear a response soon but the fanime forum DMs would also work.

NEED A ROOM for 2 girls

Hello friends, my name is Lillith (22F) and I’m looking for a room for me and my friend, Ling (24F) from Fri-Sun. We were looking at AirBnbs however it seems like it’d be better for us to make some friends and room closer to the con! Yay friends!2

Hotel Information: STAYING CON DAYS! We’re pretty flexible about where, we’re just sort of looking for a hotel near the convention! We’ll be driving in from Colorado somewhere from Thurs/Friday and we’re looking to get out by Monday! So I guess from Friday - Monday. As always, sort of on a budget since this isn’t our only con (however our first Fanime! Yay!) so preferably under $175(?).

Both of us are cosplayers, however space isn’t a problem we are not bringing anymore than 1 small suitcase or duffle since no big cosplays until AX. (We also have a car to shove everything in.)
Again super flexible so I don’t care if it’s a floor spot or a couch. Bed would be super nice, we’re both pretty small so you can pretty much cram us into anything.
Gender doesn’t matter. (Again super flexible about rooming.)

Requirements: Uhhhhhh somewhere we can crash for the nights? Don’t steal? Unless you want cheap wigs.
We’re very respectful, mostly just need room to sleep in after con day is over.

Sorry for much a long post.

I need a room

Hilton or Marriott only - thursday to monday or friday to monday.

name is Charles and i stopped counting how many years i have been going to fanime. its been many.

i do not drink, smoke or use drugs and would like a room that wont do those things. no party room either as i typically use the hotel for storage and sleep. less people the better.

you can reach me at chuckdeezel (at) hotmail (dot) com. i will pay cash when i get my room key see the bed or floor space i will be sleeping at. i usually don't hang around the room so you might not see me much. great roommate, yes?

Need a room:
+ Introduction: Oi. Name's Idi, Male 30yo, this'll actually be my 10th Fanime if I've not lost count yet. Stayed in a room with random folks my first and last year. Looking for a room since I don't live in downtown anymore--twas the best cheating but alas. Dunno if I'm cosplaying, but if so it won't be something bulky. Last year I made rice-maker fried rice to share with my roommates(if I do end up in your room tell me any food restrictions! I can work around em.) :P I'm pretty chill, tend to run late--but am good at tiptoeing in to sleep.
Slayers and Outlaw star ftw. ;P
+ Hotel Information: Greatly prefer Hilton or Marriott, but could consider others con-adjacent. Looking for Friday-Monday, wouldn't turn down Thursday-Monday tho.
+ Requirements: Non-party room. I do drink a lil, but that's it. No smoking/drugs. Thx.
Looking for a floor or solo bed/couch/such spot. Basically just somewhere to sleep and stow mah stuff.
+ Contact: PM here on the forum or on discord at Kaze Horosha#7264

Need a room / Would be happy to take over a reservation
+ Introduction:
Hello! I'm Eileen, and I'm looking for a room for 2~5 people (mixed genders, all of us in our mid 20s)--whatever works for you. This will be my 4th year at Fanime! I had a very nice experience rooming with strangers previously and am looking to do the same this year. We're friendly, quiet, neat, clean, don't drink/party/smoke/do drugs/bring people over, and don't have lots of stuff. We're super chill and can get along with everyone, and don't mind sleeping on the floor. I might be bringing a costume for cosplay, but nothing fancy!

+ Hotel Information: Within walking distance of the hotel, Hilton/Marriott preferred. Thursday-Monday please!
+ Requirements: We're cool with everything
+ Contact: Please PM me! Look forward to rooming with you.
