After refreshing a ton of times, I was able to get a JW King room.
There are no more downtown rooms.
At this second may be, but people will drop rooms. You just have to be persistent.
1 hour 35 minute wait time, no downtown left when I got in :(
Persistent? You mean that, after waiting until my wait time to get into the system, I now have to spend over 30 minutes looking/refreshing just in the hopes that the people who got in before me dropped a room? Hoorah.
I don't know if they dump the VIG rooms into the regular block after everyone has booked but it still has everything other than suites. I would keep checking back over the next few months.
Looking at our list of rooms booked, eight people booked five rooms at Marriott Downtown and one at the JW. I'm guessing a couple will get canceled.
For those of you who are enduring the sick feeling of wondering if there are any close rooms left, the closest rooms currently available are 7 miles out. Sorry... :(
I don't show anything, not even the rooms that are miles away, I have a blank page regardless of how long I extend or shorten my reservation, for 1 person.
Welp, game over I guess.
I am seeing a room for Marriott downtown. Select for 2 people and do not view available rooms only, for some reason. But it shows Aug 3-7 available (nights of 3-6)
Edit: Seems gone.
Joy 24 mins to go... I will switch off the lights when I leave...
This whole room mularky does make you wonder why you bother trying...
Ohh well c'est la vie...
