    They put a hold on your card when you check in and they finalize the charge when you check out.

    Thanks.

    It's just that the limit on my cc is pretty low (since I know myself and spending) and my flight took up most of that limit.


    I guess I'll book my hotel then.

    RESERVATION GET.

    Room with 2 double beds at the Shearton. I'm splitting it with my buddy and as someone stated earlier, there were only rooms with a single bed left at the Crowne. At least we'll have a fridge to keep our Bawls cold.

    crap, I didn't even think about a fridge. The Crowne doesn't have them huh? The fridge/freezer at the Extended Stay America last year was really handy for keeping the booze cold. It also allowed for the about 75 jello shots that we made. Hmm, someone at the sheraton better be making some jello shots this year, or at least let me keep my Jaeger in their freezer...

    Hotel room reserved at the Sheraton now. 23rd to 26th. Already filled. :D

    I'll hold off on reserving a second, if at all.

    wow. I tried the links on the PAX site for hotels and both of them are telling me there's no rooms available. I guess I'll have to call and see exactly what the deal is, but goodness sakes, that info was only posted on Monday... snooze, lose, etc., apparently.

    Really didn't want to have to commuter-con it this year, but I don't particularly want to pay out the nose, either. :\

    I just talked to reservations at the shereton when my online reservation wouldn't go through. It looks like the block for Thursday is sold out, but friday & saturday still have space.

    I was able to book thursday at the AAA rate which is only 5$ more and they said to cancel the thursday reservation and extend the Friday / Saturday one if they are able to open up the thursday block any more.

    Nah its the 165$ cost with estimated taxes. And yes its the sheraton. The room is supposed to be 234 sq feet. I think that should be enough. 23.4ft by 10ft if I estimate correctly. Depends on the layout but I think it will be enough.

    Ya, I wish I had a suite for pax. oh well. I may have a nice suit though instead :P

    Just got off the phone with the Sheraton. I was able to get a room with two beds from Aug 23rd to 27th at the PAX rate... When I checked last week both hotels seemed to be booked, or at least had all the PAX rooms booked. Anyone who was still looking for a room should try calling them again.

    I missed Khoo's post... Thanks Khoo!

    Last week I told my friend that the hotels were announced. He had no idea. So he went ahead and booked 4 rooms at the Sheraton. He cracked up when he was on hold and heard:

    For a group of people. He figured he'd want a room for him and his wife, his friend would want one for him and his girlfriend, I'd want a room for myself plus one, etc. We should easily be able to fill four rooms. But he thought it would be a good idea to get them all in the same area.

    dude, until my car broke down last week, i was sleeping in my car for about 3 weeks. even though the laptop and all the video games make it a bit more liveable, it's still a crappy way to go. and seattle cops are dicks, they will bust your ass wide open (in more than one way!) any chance they get if they catch you sleeping in your car. only thing i can recommend if you're gonna do that: find one of the free parking structures down off first ave (there are a couple, one is by club trinity), and park back in the corner. cops don't come in there, although some "other" people do. No good options any way you go, really.

    Not that I've ever had to live in my car for more than a couple days, but if I did, I'd definitely check out The Survival Guide to Homelessness, particularly the section on the car cover.

    Very good tips on your rights, where to park, and how to deal with the cops.

    That said, I'm booking a hotel.

    i had to sleep in my car once . . . . i left my house without my keys it 11:30 at night. . . . locksmith wanted $80 . . . i had no cash and for some odd reason the bank never activated my new atm card even though i called and sopposidly activated it over the phone. there was nothing left to do but crawl into my car and sleep until the bank opened. luckily i had my plastic spare key from AAA. The car was in the driveway and no one bothered me while i slept.

    It was the night before I left for PAX 06 too.

    Me and Citrus booked a room at the Sheraton for the nights of August 24th and 25th, checking out at noon on the 26th. This is mostly because of budget and the fact I will have classes started up by then. We are flying out of Indianapolis, so its about a 7 hour flight with a stop in Chicago. My question is, since we will be getting to Seattle at around 10am on Friday and will be leaving sometime afternoon on Sunday (We plan on checking out, and going to PAX for a few hours, since we will only be packing backpacks) will we be missing out on much? Since this is going to run us about 700 dollars each just for flight and hotel room, wanted to make sure we get the best out of our trip.

    All you are going to miss is the honour and glory of waiting outside the WSCTC for 24 hours to be the first nerds inside. Other stuff, you should be game, but I recommend getting in line right after you check into your hotel is you absolutely need to get in quickly.


    Not that you will.

    so, you'll just be missing part of sunday? well, the second half of pax sundays tend to be a bit of a sad, mopey drag. sure, i wouldn't trade a pax sunday for any other day of the year, other than pax friday and saturday, but comparatively, it's pretty slow. everybody's worn out from God only knows what, and probably the biggest event of the day is the final round of the omegathon, which, if you're not in it, probably doesn't excite you too much around that time. so, to answer your question, I'D never miss it, but you probably won't mind.

    Booked at the Sheraton 23-26. Too expensive to stay through Monday. I was planning on making a side trip through Oregon, so I'll just hit the road early and find someplace down there.

    Is there anyplace with free wifi near the convention center or the Sheraton? Although $10 a night isn't bad, I would rather surf for free and spend the $10 on a meal or drinks.
