To add to the hope people checking have, I just swung a double queen at the Hilton. I checked 4-5 times a day, didn't just sit there refreshing. Keep randomly checking and you never know!
Speaking of which, there is now a double queen at the Candlewood airport if that gets you closer (6.7 miles)
I have been doing the refresh all day in a separate window that I could keep an eye on, so apparently that does not work because I never saw that pop up.
Additionally the Candlewood has been available for awhile. It just doesn't show up through a standard search for some reason but if you uncheck show only available it is present.
So... I don't want to brag, but rooms ARE opening up. Because I just booked my buddy at the Sheraton City Center (4 blocks) Wed-Sun. I don't know if I'm just getting lucky or what - but I've now scored THREE rooms after the lottery royally effed my group over.
Keep at it!
Right now (10:55am Est 3/23) there is a double queen available at the Alexander for Wed-Sun. Not any closer than what I have but thought somone would like to know
Never saw this one either.
What are people using for search critera? I am researching every five or so minutes and changing my critera so it pulls a new list.
My search criteria every time I pull it:
Check in: Wed Aug 3
Check out: Mon Aug 8
Max Guests per room: 4 (I know this one matters, 4 max will give you double queens, if you choose 2 it will give you 1 king rooms. You can see the number of results change when you change this number)
View: Available rooms only
No specific amenities checked
Sort: Distance Near to Far
I always searched for the 3 night minimum of thursday through sunday and nothing more. If you search for a room for more nights and the room is only available for the 3 it won't show in your search. I grab it when I find the 3 key nights of the con available and then try working with the waitlist for shoulder nights.
See a Hilton garden inn downtown available.
It is gone now.
Sheridan City Circle just poped up.
I got in there and was on the last step of checking out when I got this error:
The operation you requested did not complete in a timely manner.

Is this something wrong with my computer or is that just what it shows when the room is gone?
ROOM AT ALEXANDER AVAILABLE NOW. Wed-Sun.
It is gone.
A friend just snagged a room in the Hyatt - good luck everyone - they do come up - I got a room in the Hilton a few days ago.
There is a double/double at the Sheraton Indianapolis City Centre Hotel (4 blocks) available right now.
DANG! too late...
