    Unfortunately, due to a communication error SW.CA, RW, and I currently don't have a room for Botcon yet. What are the chances of more Botcon rooms coming available at the group rate? Just want to know whether I should cut off my left nut and book at the regular rate or wait.

    I think the front page news about it said they are going to try to open up more rooms but who knows.

    I really hope they do. Otherwise, I've got a nice cardboard box that could fit another three people comfortably.

    CDN Id say go ahead and book the room at the convention hotel, so at least you'll have a place to say. Then keep an eye out for when they announce the overflow hotel or more rooms being added to the block and when it does call and have your reservation changed or cancelled.

    From what Ive heard the neighboring hotels aren't any cheaper than the normal rate for the convention hotel, unless you want to stay 20 minutes away from the con, but then you'd have to drive.

    I'm getting ready to cancel the room I reserved, but it was a single king bed as well.

    I'm cheap. Found a good hotel for only $80.00 a night. Which means $150.00 more for the dealer room. :)

    Well my fiance and I managed to get a room for $46 a night. We're staying at the Radisson so we get a decent harbor view and its not too far away. All the more for the dealer room!

    Then what are you going to do? TFW must have a strong presence in the Westin. We must bring the thunder!

    What was the communication error? Was it because I didn't speak Canadian? :(

    Well all I was able to reserve online was a single king room. But Tricky called up later that night and snagged us a two bed room for her, me, Draven, and I believe Rhansen at this point...but I think we may have more possibilities.

    Don't worry, I will aid in defiling the Westin :)

    BYW, I don't know if this has already been posted elsewhere, but I just saw this on the botcon.com front page:
    Hopefully they'll find somewhere decent that's really close; based on the amount of stuff I bought myself last year I sure as hell wouldn't wish carting a load of stuff around on anyone...

    Much as I want to stay at the Westin, I really like the sound of $50-80/night for the room... so I think I'll look around a bit.
