    The Transformers Collectors' Convention - BotCon 2011!

    "The BotCon 2011 Sheraton Hotel block is currently SOLD OUT!
    We are currently working on an additional hotel block that should be
    available in the next week.

    We are also looking for another hotel location --- keep checking this page!"

    Just noticed this. Quite glad I booked my room as soon as they put the block up... >.>

    People were saying that the night they announced it.

    Kinda sucks, I guess we should have hopped online after the dinner instead of hitting the bar.

    Did you book online or did you call? We tried to book online a few hours after it was announced and it was sold out then, I called them and they only had double rooms left.

    They shouldn't have put up reservations this early. It's way to soon to be planning a vacation for next year. How am I supposed to know how many nights I want to stay and how many people I'm going with yet? Oh well, this will give me a chance to stay somewhere cheaper and spend more $ on toys I guess.

    I booked yesterday on the phone for June 1st - 6th as I just discovered Botcon 2011

    I was not amused that I got 2 double beds in my room as I wanted a king size bed instead, anybody wants to swap ?

    Just called and the gentleman on the phone mentioned that I needed to call Brian Savage (gave me his number) to book it. I specifically asked if the block was sold out and he said he couldn't pull up that info. Very strange.

    UPDATE: Called again and spoke to someone else who was much more helpful. She also saw that there was a note to call Brian but suggested we take a look as see if there were any other rooms available. She found me a room for $159/night ($20 more than the BC rate) for June 1st - 6th. Should Brian reserve a larger block we can always move the reservation over. Should Brian book an overflow hotel nearby with a better rate we can always cancel the reservation and there would be no penalty. She did mention rooms were scarce outside of the BC block for that timeframe.

    Did anyone check yet to see if there was a much smaller convention going on that same weekend there like say "Hot Wheels"? That way we could get the cheaper rooms that aren't sold out.:inquisiti

    Well it was already unlikely I'd be able to go since it's the other side of the country for me. I still have TFCon 2011 though.

    TF Con does sound appealing even to me down here in the Florida swamp land.

    I may actually try to attend that one next year instead of BotCon.
