    1st of if this is in the worng section I'm sorry.

    Once we got the email about the location and date my boyfriend jumped on the net and got us a hotel room at the con rate. To help out with the hotel bill, we are going to split the cost with a buddy that my boyfriend has known for a few years. On Saturday when we stoped by their place we were talking about Botcon. His buddy's wife now wants to go which we are ok with. Here is the problem we think that the hotel bill should be split 4 way. My his buddy thinks it should on be split 3 ways as his wife does not collect and is only going to spend time with him.

    Both men should pay half I believe. That way, regardless who collects or not, wife/partner are there to spend time with their loved one.

    Even though she's not there for the con, she is using the room. Since it's only the room bill being split, not Botcon registration, her non-attendance is not a factor. The room is what's in question, and she is using that.

    If she wants to stay for free, let her sleep in the bathtub. Otherwise split in half and let each couple pay.

    Or share the room with people who aren't cheapskates.

    Either four way, or half for each couple. Whether she collects is not an issue, she's using a quarter share of the hotel room's amenities, presumably.

    I recommend that each couple get their own room. The privacy is easily worth the extra cost to all involved. If that is not financially possible, then the cost of the room should be split in half between the two couples.

    Interesting little pole, lol. To be honest, if his wife didn't go and it was just the 3 of you, I would still split it with him. There are 2 beds in the room (I assume) and he gets one of them.

    Having done the room-share thing for most BotCons, and DragonCon -

    Rate is split evenly between all bodies occupying the room each night (meaning if you gain/lose someone for a day or two, split that night accordingly). The *only* time it might be an even split is if someone is sleeping on the floor, & providing their own bedding - then they'd be a little less (thank goodness for Japanese folding futons).

    We have done this in the past as I am usually the one who books the room and my friends crash my room. If we have myself and my girlfriend and two others then we always split it 4 ways. I don't mind paying more than everyone elese as wel always have a bed and others rotate with the sparebed/floor.
