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. :)

That sounds like good news :)   We'll be waiting to hear if more rooms are added.  *daydreams about the Fair*

Finally called today and I figured it would all be booked. I might call the hotel directly to see if I can get the $99 rate for Saturday and Sunday at least, but if they already added more than sold out again I doubt they'd add more yet again.

I don't think any more have been added yet, DP.  At least I haven't seen an announcement for it.

More were added according to a post on facebook, including king bed rooms. I booked ours a week or so ago so you might want to call.  Hopefully they haven't sold out again.

I'm confused (I should check their facebook more often lol). Did they add to the room block or is what is available still from the first set? If they added more rooms to the block they are already sold out. :(

I just called today to make a reservation and they only had rooms for the night of the 26th and 27th (double beds only). Were more available initially? Will more be added? >.<

Did anyone have luck calling to try to get the group rate for another night? (Thrusday or Sunday?)

From what I understand, on Dec 10th they added more rooms for Thursday and Sunday, including King Bed rooms.  When they originally got the group rate, they didn't have as many rooms blocked off for Thursday and Sunday nights, thinking not as many people will be staying those nights. So those sold out fast. They added more for those days, but I'm not sure how many more. Sounds like they sold out again, which surprises me!  You may want to message SweetTune directly and find out.

Did they say they had any days left, Prideth?

Maybe they can add yet another block to the hotel since it is so popular? :p

If we don't hear anything else I'll try to message SweetTune directly after the holidays. I'm sad I didn't see the Facebook message sooner. >.<

They had the $99 rate avilable Friday and Saturday, but I would call soon to lock that in.  I went ahead and booked at the group rate for those two nights and then booked Thursday and Sunday at the "normal" rate.  I was told that if they add more blocks, I can transfer my "normal" reservation to the block rate.

I do hope they add more blocks.  We considered staying in a different hotel the two odd nights to save a bit of money.

I don't really do Facebook much, so I missed the message too!

When you book your rooms, you pay at the same time right? I can't remember.

No, your card is charged when you check in or checkout.   And if you need to cancel your reservation, you should be able without penalty up to a day or two before your checkin day.

I could kick myself, I finally called to book my room and no new rooms have been added, but they do have some available.  They can switch your reservation over to a Pony room if one opens up, but something something sales team has to do that, and they're not there until tomorrrow.  It's not that much more expensive to just book one, it's not the rate I want, it's the PONY KEY!
