    Best Contact Method: My email jdixon1972@comcast.net (my real name is Pete)

    Additional Notes: I'm hoping that I can share a room with someone on Thursday night at the Westin since I couldn't get a reservation for that night (I got Fri. and Sat., though, go figure). I just really don't want to miss the pre-pax dinner, pokecrawl, and the game night at the Westin. I'm a non smoker/drug user/drinker and wouldn't be out past midnight. I hope someone can help, just email me. Thanks!

    Additional Comments: This will be my buddy and I's first PAX. We're both going to be 22 by then, and we're flexible. Floor space would work just fine. Really just looking to get the most out of this experience, because I have heard great things about it. Arrival/departure dates will be determined months before PAX, and can be discussed if the above is an issue.

    HAVE SPACE AVAILABLE:

    Hotel: Courtyard Tremont Boston Hotel
    Total Cost: $727 including tax, split between the two of us ($159/night for 4 nights, plus 14.45% tax)
    Date Arriving: Thursday, 3/21
    Date Leaving: Monday, 3/25 (i.e. We will have a room for Sunday night, then check out Monday morning)
    Number of Spots Available: 1, unless you would like to share a twin-sized bed.
    My Gender: Male
    Your Gender: Surprise me!
    Best Contact Method: mheveran at gmail dot com.

    Additional Notes/Requests: This room has two beds, presumably both twin-sized. I've never stayed at this hotel before but it's supposed to be less than 2 miles from PAX, according to the convention center, which is good, because I don't think they have parking available.

    I will give preference to people who sound interesting and who want the room for the whole weekend.

    Updated as of Jan 23rd from Need Space to Have Space, thanks to a kindly soul here on the forums.

    HAVE SPACE AVAILABLE:

    Hotel: Westin Waterfront (Whoo!)
    Total Cost: ~630 total, divided amongst 2 or 3 folk
    Date Arriving: Thursday, March 21st
    Date Leaving: Sunday, March 24th
    Number of Spots Available: 1-2. See Additional notes.
    My Gender: Male
    Your Gender: Not super picky, but male is probably preferable.
    Best Contact Method: PM here

    Additional Notes/Requests:
    I'm a 19 year old male from Canada, and this will be my second PAX, my first as a regular attendee, rather than an exhibitor. I'm going to be attending the convention on all 3 days, and I'll probably be about fairly late most of the time. I plan on attending a couple of the concerts, so that brings me back in the wee hours of the morning.

    For the roomies, I mostly just ask that they be generally presentable people, and that there be no alcohol (Unlike my own country, I'm not even legal in America) or other such debauchery in the room itself, although potential boarders can feel free to gallivant about the town partaking in such things as their heart desires, returning at whatever hour they please, so long as they can make their return without causing an absolute cacophony. I'll make the same considerations of late night stealthiness should any guests be an early sleeper.

    For the bedding situation, I'll be claiming one of the 2 double beds in the room as my own, as I'm a greedy jerk, while the other is up for grabs by the first successful applicant. Whoever ends up taking a floor spot, I'll lower their share of the price a little bit accordingly.

    This is my first time as the host of one of the room shares, so please tell me a little about yourself in your message, so I have something of an idea about which stranger will come knocking on my door.

    HAVE SPACE AVAILABLE:

    Hotel: Westin Waterfront
    Total Cost: It was $635 total, so cost to you will be $300ish (or 200ish if we have a floor dweller)
    Date Arriving: Thursday 3/21
    Date Leaving: Sunday 3/24
    Number of Spots Available: 1 extra bed. I could fit in another person if you want to sleep on the floor and are totally rad, I just don't want it turning into the cramped fire hazard it has in past years.
    My Gender: Male
    Your Gender: Any
    Best Contact Method: a PM on here is fine.

    Additional Notes/Requests: Just let me know a little about you in your request. I'm a long time PC / board gamer, and I'm bringing some of my board games with me. Last year we had a lot of fun playing board games after PAX at the hotel. This will be my third PAX and my first going alone. Interests include game design, programming, cryptography, sci-fi/fantasy worlds, and general geekery.
    EDIT:Wow, that was fast! Thanks for everyone's replies, I'm pretty sure I've filled the room now.
    EDIT: Got another spot open due to one person canceling. So there's ONE SPOT open now - and to be clear, we'll only have the room until Sunday morning (which is all they were offering through OnPeak). We're also rotating who gets to use the beds, so you'll spend one night on the floor.

    EDIT: Filled again.

I'll be meeting some friends at the con so you don't need to worry about me latching on to your plans like a needy barnacle, but if we do end up hanging out that's always fun! I'm very cleanly and have a sleeping bag so floor space would be fine.

    We're a pretty chill group, no crazy drinking. We like board games a lot when not playing video games. Also enjoy anime and I'm well into Starcraft.

    Would prefer to share with someone staying Thursday through Monday.

    Update:
    We just added 2 more dudes from ye olde forums so there's 6 total right now.
    We're open to the possibility of adding 1 more for cost / world domination reasons.

    Please be comfortable with possibly sleeping on the floor and hygiene is a must!

    Additional Notes/Requests: This will be the fourth year of four I will be going to PAX East, second year in a row for my friend. We rented a double at the Hyatt last year and it worked out great but decided to get a triple room this year for cost reasons and maybe meet some cool people. It's a triple room with two double beds but we will happily discuss who sleeps where and don't require you to sleep on the floor or anything.

    I know this makes me sound like some sketchy landlord (sorry I don't want it to!) but I'm someone who would rather not have something like another person's promise of payment looming over my head throughout the show. I completely understand if life intervenes but if you don't feel confident that you can produce your share in cash upon arrival then I would have to respectfully decline your offer. I would also request having someone who generally avoids heavy drinking or knows they can come in more than a little sauced back in the room and not disturb others or need assistance. I'm generally someone who avoids drinking and my friend will also keep to a minimum if he drinks at all.

    I highly doubt this will happen but I don't want to be put in the position of deciding between refusing your stay or hoping you come through. Instead, let's keep it simple, happy, and have it all taken care of right out the gate so we can enjoy the show! :) Again, sorry for the downer message but I just want to be clear where I'm coming from and don't' want there to be miscommunication when it concerns something we care about a lot.


    All set!

    Additional Notes/Requests: Non smoking only please. I am a 37 year old Kevin Smith clone, friendly and funny and just need a place to crash on late Saturday night/Sunday Morning. I might table game into the wee hours of the night so I might not get to the room until 2am or so.
    Sometimes I snore but am usually quiet, I don't care if you snore or stay up while I sleep. I'm clean, groomed, respectful, and courteous. I don't mind drinking and foul language, in fact I may have a few craft IPA's before I come back to the room if anything is open.

    A bed is preferred but can make do with a floor for the right price.

    Sunday morning I will use the shower and be out back to PAX, leaving from there late evening for home.

    Total Cost: $450 per person for all three nights for 2 more people, cost goes down with more than 2 (so once we get past 4 total), but you get your own keycard (well, 2 more do). Why so high? Because I missed the OnPeak deal, but Expedia had rooms available. Expensive rooms, but worth it, IMO. Can produce Expedia confirmation upon request. Also, we may be able to drop the "extra guest" $180 fee (that is $45 less a person) but then we'd only have 2 keys. Ideal for people wanting to save money and don't mind having to constantly meet up to get in the room.
    Date Arriving: Thursday March 21
    Date Leaving: Sunday, March 24
    Number of Spots Available: 2-4
    My Gender: Friend and I are both Male. I am a 30 year old lawyer, and my friend is a 27 year old bank manager.
    Your Gender: Doesn't Matter to Us. As long as you aren't...Vorcha. Seriously. No Vorcha.
    Best Contact Method: pm me here for now

    Additional notes: This is my second PAX. Last year I went, last minute, and shared a bed... yes one bed... with a stranger. BUT that is how awesome a. this hotel is and b. being connected to the exhibition hall is. Not having to worry about travel, missing things, waking up later and still getting in early... It pays for itself. What I have is a double double bed room. One bed is for me, the pleasure of putting all the money down early. The second might go to my friend, but it's up for grabs, especially if a couple, or 2 friends... or 3 friends... want to share. Whatever, I'm a hip 80s guy. No judgment.

    The cost is split 4 ways, and I threw in an extra $180 to try and get a rollaway (unlikely) and 4 total keycards, which is convenient. especially for those who want to nap during the down time. Not sure when that is, but hey, I say the same thing to myself. Usually there is a big chair too, which someone slept in last year. He lived in Boston, but paid to sleep in that chair. YES THAT AWESOME.

    All in all, I would love a couple or multi-friends so I can give a bed to more than 1 person. My friend is a handsome guy, BTW. He's dating someone, but, well, I'm an 90s guy, so no judgment. I would make the same joke about myself, but then I would be creepy. I'm not, I'm totally a 00s guy. Trust me!

    No Vorcha.

    NEED SPACE:

    Date Arriving: Most likely the 21st
    Date Leaving: Most likely the 25th (see additional notes)
    Spots Needed: Just one
    My Gender: Male
    Your Gender: No preference
    Best Contact Method: PM me here to work out the details

    Additional Notes: I'm 21 and this is my first PAX (or convention/expo of any time, WOO!!!). Flexible when it comes to a room and don't mind being a floor dweller if that's what it takes to save some cash. Also flexible on dates which is why I say most likely. I would definitely like to come out the night before and be able to leave the day after, but I live in Massachusetts so if I can find someone coming on different dates, as long as there would at least be a room for Friday and Saturday night, that's perfectly fine with me.

    EDIT: I forgot to add this in there, but I've only been to Boston once and it was a long time ago so if I can find someone somewhat familiar with the area around PAX, that would be great!

    HAVE SPACE (A BED) FOR ONE QUIET, NON-SMOKING PERSON

    Hotel:The Westin Boston Waterfront
    Total Cost: $140 for each of 2 nights. Total $280, paid in advance. I'll of course show you our reservation, which I got the second they went on sale. Last year we stayed in a hotel miles away, and the travel back and forth was a drag and expensive. Cabs were like $35 each way, and the Pax buses were infrequent and unreliable. I vowed to get the Westin this year if possible, and did. If you join us you'll get a room key and the room is half yours.
    Date Arriving: Friday, March 22
    Date Leaving: Sunday, March 24
    Number of Spots Available: 1 bed. We will take one person only, just to save a few bucks. No floor sleepers, etc. Just looking for one quiet person who wants to stay at the Westin. No one else allowed in the room.
    My Gender: I'm a dad taking his son. We can share one bed and you can have the other one.
    Your Gender: Doesn't matter. Must be a non-smoker.
    Best Contact Method: PM here to start. I just posted this and hopefully I can figure out the PM system. If not, I'll put an e-mail on this.

    We are quiet and friendly and I'm just considering this to save $$, but it's not that important to me.

    Going with a female friend of mine. We are looking preferably for a room at the Westin or Seaport because we plan to stay up late with the board gaming that goes on in the lobby. Won't be spending much time in the room so sleeping arrangements are flexible.

    Additional Notes/Requests: I am a single female (32 non-smoker) with 2 double beds. I am looking for 1 more non-smoker who will have their own bed. This is a great way for a single person (preference given to another female) to save some money without being in a crowded room.

    Additional Notes: Me and my friends have a place to stay Friday and Saturday but we really need a place to stay Thursday night. I realize 4 people is a lot but we really need a place to stay just for the night. We will gladly pay a good amount for the night. A room at the Seaport or Westin would be nice but anywhere really is fine.
