Okay, I've spent a frustrating day trying to get you guys some rooms. The host hotels continue to be sold out. Of the overflow hotels, the closest is the Omni, which is going to break down to about $290 per person for a four-person room for the duration, counting tax. It is also a hotel with a non-refundable deposit, so I haven't booked it yet.

Because the Omni is an overflow hotel rather than an official host hotel, it has some drawbacks. The first of these is the longer walk to get to the con, and the second is the lack of DCTV. The Omni also does not get favorable reviews from DragonCon attendees who have stayed there in the past. If it were me, I'd prefer to book us a lot of rooms at a cheap and refundable far-away hotel now, and keep trying to replace that reservation with a host hotel up until the last minute. It runs the risk of being stuck in Decatur and having to take the MARTA every day if the host hotel remains unavailable, but at least if that happens it won't cost nearly as much. However, it is not me, and that may not be people's preference.

The Choices wrote:
Option A) Book the rooms at the Omni as soon as possible. Everyone pays more, but at least they're at a hotel in walking distance of the convention and know there will be rooms. I would need to do this in the next 24 hours, these rooms are going FAST!

Option B) Book many rooms at a far-away hotel as soon as possible. Then keep trying to ditch those reservations in favor of reservations at host hotels, as they become available. It runs the risk of having everyone end up far away from the con, but at least if that happens they'll only be paying like $120 for their room cost.


Which option suits you guys? If I'm booking a far-away hotel, I'm booking in Decatur, because I'm passingly familiar with it, it has a lot of restaurants, I know it's on the MARTA line, and it's the cheapest of the hotels I've found. If I'm booking the Omni, I will be unable to change the reservation later. Also regardless of what I book for you guys, Poe and I already have a room in the Hyatt Regency Atlanta, which is a host hotel. So that will be available for use, at least, but you won't be able to crash in it because the room is tiny.

If we're going to have to travel a bit regardless I'd rather stay in a nicer hotel even if it means travelling a little farther. Especially if there's one on-site room where it'd be okay to leave daybags or whatever. :)

I once walked across Spain. I think I can handle some public transport in Atlanta. Option B with a hope to get a host hotel later.

Also, I bought my plane tickets last week! Super pumped!

Turns out my boy and I have friends in Atlanta that will still be around at the time of Dragon*con, so if we manage to make it down there we'll be staying with them and won't need hotel rooms :) Hope this makes logistics a bit easier?

(Oh man I forgot all the weird-ass smileys that got added to the forums :billnye: )

Okay, I let this thread sit long enough so that I felt guilty, so it's time for an UPDATE!

The situation as it stands now is that I have three double rooms at the Hyatt Place in Buckhead (which is outside Atlanta but theoretically accessible by MARTA). The rate for that room is $209 per night plus tax and internet. Call it $250 per person for the weekend. I'm sorry I couldn't get the cheaper rate, but when I checked it seemed like Buckhead would be better than Decatur for access to the convention. There are still rooms available at the Hyatt Place, so if Rennya wants to book her rooms there as well, that'd be great. These reservations did not require a deposit, and can be cancelled right up until 4 PM on August 27th, so we're free to move elsewhere if we prefer. If you want me to look for cheaper accommodations, the quality of the hotel is going to drop substantially, but I can still give it a shot if you guys want.

I also still have Poe's and my room at the official host hotel Hyatt in downtown Atlanta, which he and I have decided will be available during the day as a kind of group lounge for us Kyhmmers. We'll keep at least some coolers full of drinks and some snacks in there, too.

Now then, let's sort out who is definitely going, who needs a room, and who will be rooming with whom. At this point, I've completely lost track, so this list may be less than accurate. If you have secured your badge for the con, please tell me so I can put you on the confirmed list. If you haven't secured your badge, you may wish to hurry up as they are getting more expensive the longer you wait. Also, now is a good time to start telling me your rooming preferences. There are twelve available spots in my rooms, plus whatever Rennya secures and whoever wants to stay with Omni or other local friends.

The Attendees wrote:

Confirmed, Registration Paid:

Imp-Chan** +
Michael Poe +
WrenDraco**
Skjie

Actor (bought plane tickets, did you also get your badge?)

Additional semi-confirmed people:

Very Maybe:

** Room Captains


Edit: I'll update this list as people post, because otherwise I may go insane.
Edit 2: People with a + sign next to their name have already confirmed their accommodations.

Skjie and I are registered for the con and I can book more rooms, but I think I'd rather wait and see who else is actually registered and how many spots we need.

Did you still want a King room to yourself? The king rooms are more like suites at a Hyatt Place, so you may want to go ahead and book your room there. All the rooms I got were doubles.

It's looking less and less likely I'm going to make it... Unless things change I am likely going to be starting a new job/company the week before. :(

Just put me wherever with whomever.
Speaking of which, I plan to arrive (I.E the plane will arrive) to Atlanta on the 22nd in the evening. I'm still considering accommodations for those three days before the con starts.

Still looks like I'm going, guess I should book some plane tickets at some point in the next month.
As for a room, toss me in with whoever as long as there's a safe place to sleep.

A safe place to sleep? You're rooming with people from kyhm forums, remember. >.>

So here's the rooming situation so far...

The Rooms wrote:
Hyatt Regency (Host Hotel) King

* The room will also be used as a lounge and base of operations at the con. Kinda a miniature con suite.

Hyatt Place Buckhead Room 1

- Actor
- Wolfie
- Spiketail
- Gazing Rabbit

Hyatt Place Buckhead Room 2

- Shinimegami
- Shinimegami's Boytoy
-
-

Hyatt Place Buckhead Room 3

-

Hyatt Place Buckhead King
- Skjie
- WrenDraco

Have Offsite Accommodations
- Omni
- MiaoMing & Boy


Rennya, I'm assuming that you're booking your king room since you said you didn't want to share. If you need me to put you in one of the three rooms I got instead, please let me know. We can also still shuffle room assignments as needed, up until the start of August. If folks could start sending me their $250, though, that would be really helpful, because then I can mark you as paid and know for sure how many rooms are already paid for. Money can be sent to:

Hilary Hatch
1033 Harbury Drive
Cincinnati, OH 45224

Poe and I saw BDM05 today (totally forgot to take pictures, dammit). He indicated some interest in going to the reunion, but may or may not be able.

I realized Skjie and I won't actually be able to fly in until the Friday night, because we both have to work the Friday. Not sure how much that affects rooming situations.

Oh right, this is happening!

I can definitely make it down to Atlanta, but the Hyatt Place Buckhead is way too goddamn far. Luckily, the W Atlanta Downtown has a few rooms available despite being listed as sold out on the Dragoncon site! Their remaining reservations are completely non-refundable/modifiable, but as the Bard himself once wrote, #yolo. I've reserved a small suite from the 28th through the 2nd: http://www.watlantadowntown.com/rooms/studio-suite

The suite is spacious enough to easily fit four people, and maybe more if they like each other. However, it only has a king bed, and as per my usual convention policies it will be frequently used as a sex dungeon drug den generalized debauchery zone. Notable hazards of rooming with me include:

  • Getting sexiled at odd hours
  • Tripping on stray dildos when you get up to go to the bathroom
  • Coming back to the room to find a stranger tied to your bed
  • Being exposed to awful power metal

If you can live with the above, either post here or email me at eronarn@gmail.com! But be honest - if that's not your kettle of fish, don't put yourself into a bad situation. Also: no creepers.

I tried to check the prices and I got 314$/night (including taxes) at that hotel, at the cheapest room.

Edit: I'm considering getting a room through airbnb.com, even if only for the duration of my stay prior to Dragoncon itself (I plan to get to your hemisphere on the 25th).

I'm considering sticking around the city to look around, likely a couple days in advance so I can get my registration done before the con is running, though a day or two after for recovery might be taken as well. Anyone else going to be in the area? Figure I can save costs if I'm not alone.

Hotel room money would be good, guys. For the rooms I reserved, it'd be $250 per person. So far, only Spiketail has told me it's in the mail.

The Rooms wrote:
Hyatt Regency (Host Hotel) King
- Impy
- Poe

* The room will also be used as a lounge and base of operations at the con. Kinda a miniature con suite.

Eronarn's Room at W Atlanta Downtown
- Eronarn
-
-
-

Cost for this room is unknown, but it is much closer to the convention than the Hyatt Buckhead, which will require use of the MARTA or somebody driving people for the weekend. I will not be able to drive people, and it has only just now occurred to me that I have to check into two different hotels on Thursday. -_-'

Hyatt Place Buckhead Room 1

- Actor
- Wolfie
- Spiketail
- Gazing Rabbit

Hyatt Place Buckhead Room 2

- Shinimegami
- Shinimegami's Boytoy
-
-

Hyatt Place Buckhead Room 3

-
-
-
-

Hyatt Place Buckhead King
- Skjie
- WrenDraco

- MiaoMing & Boy


We can also still shuffle room assignments as needed, up until the start of August. If folks could please start sending me their $250, that would be really helpful, because then I can mark you as paid and know for sure how many rooms are already paid for. Money can be sent to:
