Hey, I got in at the Wilshire too!!!  I had the Holiday Inn but it wouldn't accept May 22nd and once I backed up to change my date it was gone.  The Wilshire was my second choice, so I am relieved.  But I got stuck paying $179.00 a night.... :-X

I think the only available for us was the Millenium (Falcon) Biltmore....  it's like $250 a night or some such crap..... (oy my wallet.... now how can I ever pay for stuff AT C4?)

That stinks.  It looks like they may have done the same thing they did for C3 - opened blocks of rooms gradually.  I just looked at the hotel list at it looks like rooms are available at most of the hotels.  Some are sold out for certain nights (mainly Friday night), but others have rooms available for the 23rd-28th.

Damn day for too many meetings.  I missed the chance to get the hotel I really wanted (Hilton).  Oh well, I do have a room at Hampton closer to the airport.

I think the Hilton was the first to sell out... I think only 1 or 2 people from the DCSWCC made it into the Hilton

I'm glad I ended up booking a hotel early on since I stuck at work at and it sounds like most of the close hotels are gone or will be soon.  I'm also only paying $90 something a night so thast saves me money to spend at C4.  Now hopefully the hotel is in a good spot of town.  May have to take a look during my lunch hour since its close to my work.

I ended up booking at the Mariott.  I just didn't want to deal with a cab ride or rental car from the Hampton everyday.

Done.  That was easier than I had ever hoped it would be.

That's a relief.

BTW, I booked my room at the Wilshire Grand. I was able to book Wednesday & Thursday nights last week for around $139/night tax included. It cost me $179+ tax for Friday night. So much for great convention rates.

Hey, I got in at the Wilshire too!!! I had the Holiday Inn but it wouldn't accept May 22nd and once I backed up to change my date it was gone. The Wilshire was my second choice, so I am relieved. But I got stuck paying $179.00 a night.... :-X

Party at the Wilshire! I got a room there as well. I would have liked to have gotten into the Holiday Inn but it was booked, my own fault for sleeping in until 2 today.... :-X :-[

Now I just need a roommate or two and some $$$...

Well the booking was done as soon as it came online, 6 nights arriving on the 23rd & leaving on the 29th my Birthday. I will be bunking in with locals & couple of other Canuckleheads.  ;D

We are staying at the Holiday Inn, 0.2 miles from the Convention Centre.   :-*

Yeah, it'll be great staying across the street from the convention center - no need to deal with cabs or car rentals.  8)


the first round of drinks are on me at the JD party! :D


Just wanted to get that in quotes.

You can count on it.  ;)

I booked my flights tonight.  I was able to use some frequent flier miles so I got them both for $10 :)  I'm only going to be there on Saturday and Sunday (with a possible late Friday and early Monday appearance).  Still, excited to be going!

Damn ..no 50% off entry fee like I get at the CC annually, oh well.
Sounds like I get a free drink though...
