Report Possible change in Dance - We want your opinion! in Otakon 2009 Posted March 20, 2009 im giving a big NO to this as a person that is staying in the hilton, last thing anyone else wants in the hilton, is more people riding the elevators or having "rave" parties in the elevators. also bringing this crowd closer to where people are trying to sleep dosen't strike me as a good idea, i can already see the disturbances caused by people thinking its funny to go up on the other floors and start banging on peoples doors. that also brings up another point, less security. if people want to do something they aren't supposed to, instead of leaving the con or going back to their own hotel, they will go find some unsupervised floor and take advantage of it just out of sheer laziness. I really don't feel like walking out of my room at 1:30 am at seeing a dry hump orgy going on at my floor outside my door. now im not saying EVERYONE at the dance is going to do this, but past videos have all shown us there is that minority of idiots that will pull something like this. unless you have some kind of security riding in the elevator and on every floor to prevent this, i don't think its a good idea. If I'm not mistaken isn't the vast majority of the rooms seperate from the actual ballrooms and meeting areas in the Hilton? I stayed there recently and when I was there we were in the main hotel area which housed the bar, front desk, valet area, and a few meeting rooms. The second area which is accesible by a glass bridge seemed to house the main ballrooms, resturants, and meeting areas. Not to say that even if this is the way the hotel is setup that you won't have the issues described, but it would cut down on some of the things you discussed above. Personally I think its a good idea to utilize the extra space in the hotel for the dance. It leaves rooms open in the actual convention center for other things, like more video rooms, and it gives ravers more space to do their thing.
