Yep, I JUST booked a room, 10 miles out, without a car, exciting.
No wait list means that at random come on back and maybe you'll get lucky, or maybe not.
When the Indy Housing and Convention was handling the rooms, a wait list did not seem to be an onerous task for them to handle. Getting not only any room downtown, but the specific hotel and type of room that I wanted had never been a problem, much less, "impossible".
marimaccadmin, I'm sorry, I DO understand that you are trying to help answer people's questions - venting frustrations upon you is not fair to you.
I sincerely apologize.
I get that it's a frustrating experience, and it's fine to vent; I truly wish everyone could have the room they wanted, it's just not possible.
Typically the two rates are self parking and valet parking rates. Valet parking usually has in / out privlidges as well.
The FAQ on the housing page is somewhat unclear on the process of modifying an existing reservation.
In order to modify an existing reservation,"... log into your Gen Con account, visit your My Housing page, and click the View Reservation link for the reservation you'd like to change. "
What happens at that point? Does the existing reservation stay until the new one is completed? Is the only way to view what is available to attempt to modify an existing reservation?
This isn't necessarily a housing question, but more about the forum on housing trades. If someone posts a "Looking For" thread, can they bump their own thread, and if so, how often? Otherwise, their post gets buried very quickly.
EDIT- Please put all room requests in the rooms wanted sub forum, thank you.
Admins - When I go to my housing portal, I see the following...
Total reservations you can make for the following badge holders: 1
Reservations remaining for the following badge holders: 0
I haven't made any reservations and the "Go to Housing Portal" button is active...I can use it. Does the above mean that I'm not able to make a reservation?
For full background, a friend of mine did make reservations (Airport area), and I figured I'd check back periodically to see if something Downtown opens up. He added my email as an additional occupant of the room. Did that somehow eat up my reservation slot?
Thanks in advance!
Does it show a confirmation code or access code? If it shows an access code, you should still be able to make a reservation.

So I'm good then, eh?

What is the process of getting a room reservation from another attendee? I have someone whom has an extra downtown room that they are going to trade to me, but I have no idea how to go about switching card info and the like in order to get the room in my name. Any direction on how to accomplish this would be very helpful.
