If I put in Guests: 1, I get some downtown hotels to return. Guests: 2, I get none. This is of course for the standard stay of Wed - Sun.
That's dumb. It makes it impossible to plan. If every badge is a random number then I could've received it the moment I bought the badge. Then at least I would have known ahead of time that I needed to look outside the GenCon system. Making people wait until the last minute to learn that you're screwed seems quite arbitrary and malicious.
There appears to still be several downtown hotels still available, but only for 2 guests or less.
Wasn't this the problem in 2014 (the portal opened for everybody at the same time, and it became a de facto lottery as to who could get a connection to the server before the downtown rooms sold out) that led to the random times being assigned in 2015 in the first place?
I got screwed like a lot of you, and won't get a downtown hotel.
Can I just not buy anything and check every day for cancellations? Or do I have to buy *something* and get on that "wait list" somebody mentioned? I had a backup already booked down in Southport, but I'm on the fence whether I actually want to bother going if I have to commute again, it's such a bad experience, I was screaming and cursing all weekend over parking.
Just got thru from 60m countdown. Double/doubles downtown are all gone. There are still some king rooms depending on your dates.
This thread so far: "There are no more downtown rooms, except there are plenty of downtown rooms."
I got one of the last connected rooms downtown I think - JW marriott just at 12:12PM CT
Just checked, there are still rooms available.
I am staring at the housing portal right now. There are rooms at the JW MArriott and the Hilton available.
The wait time I got is a million hours. A million. Thanks Gen Con!
When are they going to set up a convienent round the clock shuttle service that runs every 10-15 minutes to make hotels outside of downtown practical? I wouldn't mind staying outside of downtown if there was an easy, fast, reliable way to get between the hotel and the con at any time.
I had 1:18 minutes. When I logged on, there were no longer any downtown hotels for 4 people.
Am I the only one that feels this "Q Rooms" system just plain sucks? I have never had an issue reserving a room for Gen Con. Now, after not going last year, this is terrible.
