    Botcon.com has been updated.

    Although not new news, they announce the $129/night rate at the Westin, and have a link to the hotels site, to reserve at that rate.

    Really? Because just going through it I see double bed option, and get the con rate (+25 per person beyond 2) on 4 just fine. I didn't complete the thing though since I already booked over the phone earlier today.

    Yeah, back when I reserved my room a few days ago, they gave me a double-bed room no problem.

    the option shows up, but then when you click on "reserve" you will see:

    likewise when you select 4 guests you will see the following message:

    I was just able to pass to the personal info stage, it just tacked on an additional 50 bucks a night...

    Maybe they've opened more rooms to the package?

    I don't understand how anyone is getting such different results.

    The max I was able to pick was 3 adults.
    Anytime I choose 2 double beds it says that preference is unavailable (it will let you continue to reserve but if you look at "bed type" it will say 1 King

    This is all when I pick check in of 6-27 and check out 7-01, check out 7-02 is now also coming up unavailable

    I Booked a room with double beds, ran the search again and it shows a double with 4 people available. Unless something is worng with their search I imagine that you can get the double with 4 people online for the rate.

    Right, the website was giving me nothing, so I ended up just calling them anyway.
    I did get a room at the BotCon rate, double beds, from the 27th until the 1st, but the sunday night was $239. When split 4 ways that isn't so bad so I just booked it anyways. :) 

    She admitted though that their computer system is having problems, so this might be why the online booking is noy going so well :(

    I made phone reservations last night for a single king for the wife and me. Gonna feel like we're sleeping in a field as we're used to sleeping in a king with a eighty-five pound dog, and another sixty pound dog, plus two cats. Kinda sucks you can't get con rate for Sunday night, as we really wanted to take off Monday morning, but you couldn't convince me to pay over two hundred a night for any motel that doesn't include some special amenities in the room rate.

    We went to book it this morning, but as others have said it wouldn't let us book from the Thursday to the Monday. Thursday to Sunday and Sunday to Monday is fine as two seperate bookings.
    It must be because FP told them that people would only need Thursday to Sunday.

    Then again last year we were so bored on the Sunday we wished we had booked our flights home for that day.

    Bah. Even with the higher price for the Sunday, it's still doable.
