Well, I booked Friday and Saturday.  We are actually going to fly in from New York so we should be able to get there pretty early in the morning.  But fingers crossed some more blocks get added and I can and Thursday and Sunday too.  Now, just to work out how we're going to pay for this massive East Coast month and a bit long trip we're doing.

Just booked my room.  None of those little tricks worked to get the special rate rooms.  I'm starting to suspect maybe they only gave us like 8 rooms on that rate block  :huh:  BUT I got a rate of $129.00 per night.  I'm going to be calling back to see if I can get a better rate as the convention approaches.  Room prices seem to be in a constant state of flux.  BUUUUT YAY  MLP 2015 here I come

Seriously? I got $154/night. :( Definitely will be calling every now and then to see if rooms have opened up. Might check out the aforementioned Double Tree, though. If it's the hotel I think it is, then the Double Tree is basically at the end of the "driveway" to the hotel anyway. :huh:

Still looking forward to the convention, though!

Any chance of having an overflow hotel? ;)

Edit: Nope, not the location I thought it was. :( Still, a 6-minute drive/25 minute walk isn't bad compared to what it could be. :) So now I've two rooms reserved at different hotels. If a room opens at the Hilton, cool, and if not, I'm covered regardless! :D

My creativity keeps running into a lack of time and resources.  :cry:
I'm also available via twitter at @Kazzellin :)

So many projects!! What do I want to work on? :awake:

I've had some issues reserving a room as well....I was quoted $119-$129/night (I was also told the group rate was $119, not sure what's up with that). Is there a way we can either expand the block (I think this has been done in the past), or make a wait list with the hotel?

I'm currently working with the hotel housing coordinator to get this all smoothed out. They have plenty of space available on Thursday and Sunday nights at the host hotel. They just have to get more rooms added to our room block (including some King rooms.) She doesn't think this should be an issue, she is just making sure it gets approved by her supervisor and added into the system for their central reservation call center. Also, according to our event contract, our attendees should be eligible for the $99 room rate for the two days before the room block and two days after the room block as long as space allows and according to their reservations report I was sent, it appears they have lots of space.

I've been away on vacation and this week I've been trying to get some answers for us. I'll give another call on Monday and update. :)

Yay!  Thanks, Summer!  I might be either driving or catching a train so those days extra would be great.

Thank you SweetTune! I did book a reservation for Friday and Saturday at the Fair rate, just need to get Sunday adjusted when the room block situation is sorted out. :) Can't wait for the Fair!
