    Anyone else staying at the Radisson Boston? It's not a PAX-endorsed hotel but I found a great deal for it, and if anyone else is staying there it'd be awesome to meet up.


    I'm at the Radisson from Thursday (today... arrive at 4pm local time) until Monday.

    I'm Scottish and will be cutting about in my kilt no doubt! :)

    Not to rub it in or anything..Or to be a fanboy to start a city war...But this wouldn't be an issue if it was in New York...hotels every few blocks! Parking would be a complete bitch though! And expensive. but no over crowded problems.

    boston does have quite a few hotels, i don't think that's really the issue. there is a HUGE number of people coming to pax, and many of them want to stay in one particular hotel (westin, obviously). and yeah, the expensive factor in new york would basically cancel out any other benefits.

    not trying to hate on new york, just saying. this is hardly boston's fault.

    I am so sorry for all of you that had booked with the Westin (A Starwood hotel). I had a huge issue with them last year at the Sheraton. last minute cancellation and moved 2 miles down the road. I really wish the PAX organizers would realize that Starwood is not very customer friendly when it comes to bumping people (which i am seeing the do quite a bit now) with confirmed reservations. perhaps next year Marriott might be the answer.

    "You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young." "Why, what did she tell you?"

    "I don't know, I didn't listen."

    Has anyone staying at the Doubletree Downtown Boston not received a confirmation number? Unfortunately this kind of fell on being a thing that I hadn't noticed until it being pretty late while I was filling out an authorization form.

    I already plan to call up OnPeak tomorrow morning but has anyone else ran into this problem / found a solution?

    I haven't gotten one myself, I'm calling shortly though to make sure I'm set to check in tonight.

    the problem with this is that the bcec is the only convention center in boston large enough to contain us, and the westin just happens to be adjacent to the center. pax could, hypothetically, not include the westin in its discount thing, but that would really only hurt the many many people who would probably still book the westin anyway for the convenience factor. i think the real thing to hope for is that the westin (or onpeak) will learn from this experience and not overbook so heavily next year.

    Intercontinental here too, as for the partiers i'd guess they're spread between the Pre PAX dinner, the Poke-crawl and the Pre PAX gaming night. and of course there is bound to be a few impromptu get togethers.
