  1. sven72383 is correct. Room nights reflect the amount of rooms total that the hotel is willing to provide over the course of Otakon (Peak nights + shoulder nights). Because life never goes as planned, some hotels are willing to juggle a few room nights from shoulder over to peak (or vice versa) - or even move a sunday night room and extend it into a Monday night room.
  2. I keep forgetting about the hampton inn. I'll see what I can do to negotiate rates for you.
  3. I created a troubleshooting guide for hotels here: /viewtopic.php?t=13115" target="_blank">http://board.otakon.com/viewtopic.php?t=13115 This is coupled with updated hotel info here: /viewtopic.php?t=13110" target="_blank">http://board.otakon.com/viewtopic.php?t=13110 I'll continue to field questions via pm or on these threads as much as possible, and port major questions over to the troubles guide.
  4. First, I'm sorry that the hotels situation is the factor that might drive you away from attending Otakon in the future. We did have a fairly low rate at the Holiday Inn Express at the Stadiums, and it even offered a free shuttle to and from the BCC. But very few people actually used it. To the point where it is not worth contracting blocks at that hotel this year. As for the hotels before announcement, that was the plan. You have two factors here: 1) Hotels have varying policies about when to open reservations. 2) The contracts are in place (although unsigned), the rooms blocked ou
  5. So like, if anyone knows those folks, and knows names, please feel free to contact me. PM me or use the contacts page and drop down to something. Any messages concerning me will eventually get to me. I don't want to say "rat out your buddies" .... but rat out your buddies. 'Cuz seriously, I want Otakon to stay in Baltimore for many years to come.
  6. If they said they would call you back, I'll hold them to that. I'll call up the Days Inn sales folks and follow up with what they're doing over there (among other things to talk about tomorrow). Hyatt does have a block (very small). Rates are: Single $259 / Double $284 / Triple $309 / Quad $334 Indeed there are two blocks there, make sure you state that you are reserving inside the "Attendee" block, method of reservation is "individual call in." I do not know when they will open up reservations for August 2008. The other block is reserved through me, and you need to be on a speci
  7. Holiday Inn is a flat 189 per night. Rooms available thurs - sun. I'm not sure when they'll start reservations.
  8. I sent the compiled info to Andy yesterday. Expect an update to the website soonish. *Update* Signed the contract with the Days Inn this afternoon. I'm not sure if I'm able to negotiate a price lower than 199/night for you guys. The important thing is that the contract is signed, and the block is now open to you folks. I'll keep trying to lower that 199 rate to something a bit more reasonable as an addendum to the contract. Some 200 rooms on peak are being negotiated over at the Sheraton City Center, however their prices have gone up a bit too (comes with the renovations and n
  9. Eep! Totally missed that part. That's what i get for speed reading responses. What kind of problems?
  10. I am waiting on exactly 2 contracts (Days Inn and Sheraton City Center formerly Wyndham). Everything else is set to go. Actually guys, the cheapest hotel you'll get is the Radisson Plaza Lord Baltimore, and it isn't *that* bad of a walk to the BCC (not much further than say, the Baltimore Arena). It is right next to the Sheraton City Center (connected by skywalk to Sheraton's Restaurant "Shula's"). Prices for the Holiday Inn and the Days Inn skyrocketed this year. Shame, but what can ya do?
  11. "Thursday thru Monday $1,432.00" I paid that much for my suite at the Sheraton (well, 1500+change). My sales rep promised me the contract in my inbox today, but failed to deliver. At this point, we're playing phone tag and email tag. Expect updates soon!
  12. That is mostly our fault, as we basically reserved what they were willing to give as staff block. That's why it was "sold out." I'm handling that a bit differently this year, and trying to hand over the majority of the days inn for you folks.
  13. well, there's already 100+ rooms in the block that you guys can't touch until my signature is on the paper. I'm just trying to increase that number for y'all. Buuuuuut, looks like y'all don't want the sweeter deal. Oh well.
  14. Hey folks, I been doing back and forth emails with the Days Inn. We're going to try to open a few more room blocks at the lowest rate possible (it should be lower than 179$). But until then, you gotta keep that weekend as free as possible. So stop booking there for a few days yet.
