Yeah, I found that Wed-Sun within walking distance was generally sold out by the time I got in. My friends found a hotel already on their own, outside of the housing portal for Thurs-Sun, within driving distance, at a better going rate not listed as available in the housing portal. While the portal is handy, you may want to just start shopping around on your own.
Does my card get charged now for the room or is it like a regualar hotel and I get charged when I check in?
Yep.. Got a 3.5 hour wait, and nothing nearby within 10 miles.. Looks like its time to cancel that badge.
There are still block rooms available, just nothing downtown at this moment.
Are they going to announce when you can book under the waitlist?
How many on block downtown rooms are made available to non-VIG each year? Is there anything we can do to increase that number?
Are you able to answer the first question I asked?
How do we transfer rooms from one party to another using the housing block?
Is there a reason you can share why there is no wait list?
The end of the wait list is the end of my interest in the future of gencon. I think I'll begin scheduling other versions of vacation. Hell, I can reserve later and get a better price than the ones left in gencon's housing block.
is there no rooms left at all in any of the housing blocks? It keeps coming up with nothing in my search criteria. Why isnt this event in a first tier city that can handle larger amounts of people?
It's been that way for the past two years. I imagine it's because it would be impossible to keep a waitlist of that magnitude regularly.
There are still people, as we speak, booking rooms in block hotels on the website. Tomorrow and until a couple of weeks before the con, people will be dropping rooms here on the forums, and in the system. With persistence, you can get a close room. With no effort at all, you can get a hotel room 15 minutes away now. It's certainly you choice to attend or not under those conditions.
guess my browser isnt functioning properly as it shows nothing available even the furthist hotels
I'm told there are still rooms available outside of downtown. Try for diffrent days or different numbers of people.
i see now. i cant leave tuesday.
