Got a Deluxe Double/ Double at the Sheraton! it really DOES work!
I do do not know the process for trading, but I would be happy to oblige!
My email is REDACTED. Shoot me an email with your room rate when you can.
Swapping process is easy--you call housing, give them the name of the person you're giving your room to. Then the other person calls to confirm and give a credit card number, and it's done.
EDIT: Oh, just to make sure...did you mean you have Sunday night reserved too? So Monday checkout?
Email sent with details and answers!
Just released a double/double at Sheraton four blocks from con. Keep an eye out.
Thanks Britbrit! I picked it up! :-)
There is a hotel available that is 6 blocks from convention center
It's already gone. :(
I clicked into it about a minute ago and got the timeout eror.
I see the 6 blocks away when searching Aug 3-8 for 4 people (Home2 Suites) currently for those interested
Just saw a Sheraton room available 4 blocks away (someone grabbed it while I was looking)
Keep on looking if you still need a room downtown. You never know when one will pop up!
YES, I saw that one as well, though in order for it to show up I had to uncheck the box of "View Available Rooms Only" and then manually click on each hotel "Show availability" manually. For each close hotel that otherwise looked as if it's booked. Hopefully Q-Rooms will fix this...
So doing my morning scroll through the hotels(manually checking each of them) and saw something I thought was different. Several of the airport hotels had only friday marked as unavailable and neither Thursday or Saturday appeared to be wait listed. Found this odd and mildly irritating. I did not see this in any of the other hotels. Have other people seen this or am I seeing a glitch of some kind?
Yeah, I see it too. While it could be that they didn't give an equal number of rooms to each night. Friday is probably just the highest demand night for airport hotels. Many people fly in for GenCon for the weekend, plus they are still managing the business customers from the week. It sucks that it locks makes sense. =/
You should be able to (easily I think) find outlying motels outside of the block at similar prices. At least I have in the past, and had friends who booked late last year.
Earlier this morning, I was able to get a King at the JW Marriott. It really does work!!!! Each day I would check once or twice at random times and today I feel like I won the lottery.
