SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2016 — HOTEL REQUEST FORM GUIDE
« on: April 04, 2016, 01:56:23 PM »
[member=1233]jopari[/member] just posted his walk though of the the forum. While we don't have a test form this year we do have a very good idea of what's on the 2016 form.  Returning Vet's will be happy to know it's essentially like the 2015 forum.

so for this part, can i just leave this blank? i really just want the 6 hotels I have specified. i wasn't sure since this is my 1st time doing the hotel sale.

If none of my specified hotels are available... *
-Book me into any available downtown hotel. If NO downtown hotels are available, discard my request and do not waitlist me.
-Book me into any hotel that is on the shuttle route. If NO hotels on the shuttle route are available, discard my request. NOTE: If we are able to book you into a hotel on the shuttle route, you will also automatically be waitlisted for your original, specified hotel choices above.
-Book me into any available hotel. NOTE: If we can book you into any available hotel, you will still automatically be waitlisted for your original, specified hotel choices. If we CANNOT book your requests, you will be automatically waitlisted.

You HAVE to pick one, its a required field. you can ONLY pick one. I personally pick the second option because i want a shuttle if i cannot stay downtown.

Also, if they book you into a hotel you won't stay at, you can just not pay the deposit, and that room will go back into the pool. The only drawback to this is that then you would not be waitlisted for your original 6 choices.

Thanks for the guide, Jopari!

Thanks Alyssa. This practice form was a great help! Both me and my husband used it to get ready for today. Now just trying to wait until we receive any word if we were successful or not.

I selected the option to book any available hotel. I didn't give it much thought when I looked at the form but I suppose it'll be better than nothing

Do you think they gave people who selected this option (myself included) less priority given that we'd still get a hotel we'd be "satisfied" with even if it's not in our top 6?
