Above and beyond Alec.
I found this info very helpful last year which was available in this forum. Such a shame this information this year is only on Facebook. Not a Facebook user so I’m locked out on getting any housing updates.
my friends are losing hope as i relay the messages on hotels being sold out on the page. didnt want to have to drive back and forth but thats looking like what itll be now. thanks for the updates though, much appreciated because now they can stop waiting till their 7pm time slot to look at other options.
For those unable to see Facebook, there Are only 5 downtown hotels with space left.
Thanks for the info! Maybe next year we can have the full information shared on the regular Forum. I know I'm not the only one who boycotts Facebook.
I think all the downtown rooms are gone at this point. I almost got one, but got kicked out.
Facebook is the ultimate low effort method of communication. Put the burden on other people to get the news you want to communicate.
That said, thanks to Alec for the updates, and for making them viewable to those without FB logins.
And it’s sold out.
Can I ask where you saw those updates from Alec without Facebook?
Interesting. My Firefox will not allow me past the Facebook Log In page and gives no options other than create account or Login. Oh well, too late for me this year. But perhaps next year Alec can include more than just the Facebook crowd. Thanks to him for providing the updates anyway. It is a useful service.
Sorry for those not on Facebook who couldn't see the updates. If someone wants to take on the task of copying the updates here next year (like someone did last year), I certainly welcome it.

Thanks so much, Alec!!
Happy to help.
I just booked Thurs-Sunday at Hampton Inn Indy Downtown. (king)
My start time was 2:16 and was screwed seeing available downtown for all the days for any skywalk types.
While pondering just refunding... I changed the default search for #guests from 1 to "2"
...that made Hampton show up in the sort near to far. Not ideal for these old legs but it will suffice.
Surely after one year of refunding you could afford an out-of-block room instead?
naw... a 90 refund won't cover out of block cost per night difference, let alone 3 day minimum on a connecting hotel.
Canceling is more out of spite really since they went lottery.
