    Even though my odds of coming to PAX are slim, still booked a hotel just in case. Let's hope I can come!

    My friends and I are going this year for sure, so I booked the hotel since location and rooms are usually the first to get snapped up.

    We Booked a 2 bed room at the Sheraton

    There's a possibility that I might be PAXing solo this year, is it wise to make reservations now and then deal with finding possibile people to split it with later?

    Booked! Sarah and I are staying at the Olive 8. We got a transfer to it two years ago when the Grand Hyatt overbooked. Beautiful place.

    Thanks for the heads up, Wingedillidan!

    Was the Homewood Suites on there at any point? I booked a twin room for my group earlier, and figured I could cancel if I got a cheaper rate via PAX... from what I've seen so far, very glad I booked early!

    Oh, and I'd agree with what others have said about book hotels first. My advice is to book, in order:
    1. Hotel
    2. Tickets
    3. Flights

    Thanks Wingedillidan for posting!!

    I just nabbed the Homewood Suites for 4 nights. I was torn between the Sheraton and Homewood Suites, but my other half has food allergies and being able to store and prepare our own food is huge. I also saw before this that there's a Whole Foods not to far away, which is more awesomeness.

    3rd PAX, but 1st Prime, SO EXCITED! :D

    I am happy that I got my room booked although of course it happened on a day I slept in and I now have to find a room for the first night I am there (no pax rooms in the Grand Hyatt on Wednesday night apparently, but there are rooms so I will call the hotel).

    I believe you should book in the following order:
    1. Flight (Generally cheaper the farther out you book)
    2. Hotel (Because you know your dates because of how you set up your flight)
    3. PAX Tickets (3-day badges are normally around for months before they start sending out the warnings).

    I'd rather prefer to have a hotel I need to cancel (for no charge) over the much more likely scenario of tickets and nowhere to stay...

    yeah...I don't know...having a guaranteed roof over my head seems pretty like a pretty concrete thing.

    Edit: To further nail this home, I don't think I'm even going to be able to make it to PAX and I've reserved a hotel. That should tell you something.

    at the sheraton. do they give any complimentary breakfasts or dinners or anything? you would think paying 209 a night they would. vs a hotel/motel thats cheap giving free food.

    Over the last five years of booking hotels, I've learned how far we are willing to walk, scummy the hotel can be, and what amenities we want. I found having a refrigerator is the best, since I rarely finish a whole meal at one time. Honestly just need a bed and a toilet!

    The Sheraton has been good to the Boyfriend and I, so we go there once again.

    FYI!! Some hotels (ie The Westin on Fifth and Stewart) are having a sale on Priceline, so check out there as well.

    fair enough though i want to stay till the 1st of september and there's no option for that date on the hotel reg page.

    Yeah, you can only get the PAX rate "around pax". People that I know that are doing longer vacations tend to book at the PAX rate for the nights that are available, and at full price for other nights. It may be 2 or 3 separate reservations depending on days before and after the pax rates, but it's likely worth the discount. Also, once OnPeak gives your reservation to the hotel (usually a couple of weeks prior to PAX) you could probably get them to link your non-OnPeak reservations with your OnPeak reservation so it's one cohesive stay (that's just conjecture though, not sure if it can be done).

    Tough decision, because I've had a really good experience at other Homewoods, but I went with the Sheraton because I'm bringing my son and being able to just run up to the room whenever we want will be a huge convenience for us.

    This will be my first PAX and im also going to be solo. The general consensus seems to be to book hotels now but I can't afford to book an individual room or risk not finding people to split with. Will people who do have a group room and need to people to share advertise on here or anything?

    A thread will go up closer to the event and people can post if they have or need room in there.
