    Hey all,

    I've never been to TFCon before so I have no idea about how convention/room pricing works. I plan on going to the one in DC next fall so I reserved a room at the Hyatt Reston today just in case, looking at about $170/night with the ability to cancel up to 24 hours prior notice without penalty.

    My question is, when more concrete details about TFCon is released, do room prices drop or is there typically a Con admission/room package available?

    Thanks for any replies! Cheers and Merry X-mas eve to all.

    They have always had "block" pricing for the shows, and links are given here and on the TfCon page when they go live. Usually a form of online coupon code or promo code is utilized to gain the block placing and price.

    Cool, now I know what to look for when the TFCon pages go live. I hope the block pricing will be much better than the $170~ish per night rate which I have so far.
