    I seriously cannot believe I got the Sheraton. Considering how impossible it is to get into the Westin in Boston during PAX, I thought I was out of luck for sure. Thanks for smiling on me PAXen gods :)

    The sheraton is *huge*

    While proximity is comparable to the westin, capacity is not. Also there's lotso fo ther close hotels.

    I got in right away and all the hotels were still available. That NEVER happens! I think no one was stalking the site cause it was late on a Thursday. I never would have known if not for my monitoring.

    I figured that was what was up with my impeccable timing. Well, at least I won't have to get up 2 hours early to get to PAX on time like East! I'll have to scope out the hotels to see if I can get a better sense of their pro/cons while I'm there. I was just jazzed to get to be in the hotel with all the board games and nerds hanging out XD

    Is anyone having a lot of trouble with the hotel site? It's been saying It's my turn in line for a good 5 minutes but I can't actually get directed to the registration site

  • shadowscoutshadowscout Registered User regular
    yeah I got through at the start and got kicked out when trying to confirm booking - stuck now at end of queue and twice have clicked on the pop-up button to take me to the website

  • Foo_DogFoo_Dog Registered User regular
    been at the same place in line for the past 20 mins, hopefully it will sort itself out

  • shadowscoutshadowscout Registered User regular
    and now it just told me I'd left the queue and I had to queue again >.<

    Yes, you can cancel tickets. I've been able to in the past anyway! It's how tickets can come up again later before the show.
    Also, it doesn't charge you until you actually get to the hotel I believe. It did not charge my card today.

    Yeah I know two folks in Seattle I am going to try to stay with, but will probably try to reserve a room just in case. Glad to know they can be canceled (at least until 30 days prior, I assume).

    * been at the "It is your turn. Waiting room is paused and should resume shortly" screen for a bit now!

    Anyone else frozen on the OnPeak page? They said someone booked all of the available rooms while I was finishing reserving my room at the Hyatt. Now it's just stuck loading.

    Folks who didn't get what they want, here's good news: hotel availability changes a lot, especially once the reservations get transferred. If you didn't get your dream hotel, get something else you can live with, and login to OnPeak once in a while to see if any new rooms have opened up in a better hotel. Last year I missed out, but later got a MUCH better hotel (Homewood Suites, which I just reordered for this year).

    I have been in the hotel page three times, hit an 'IT' error and can't do anything. -_-

  • kaZombiekaZombie AlbertaRegistered User regular
    yupp kicked me out too :c

  • ZombicusZombicus Registered User regular
    Did anyone see any smoking/non-smoking options for rooms? I believe they were there last year, but I fail to see an option this year. Is it just going to be random?

    Can anyone confirm the cancellation policy for hotels? Specifically, whether or not there is any sort of cancellation fee or lost deposit. I booked a room at the Mayflower Park Hotel. Only after booking it did I realize that I wouldn't necessarily need it.

    Thanks for this. Pretty much using this advice since I kept having problems with OnPeak today.

    *Typically* it's around 72 hours advanced notice for cancellations. I would double-check with your reservation details, it should have them listed.

    Blocked for me too, I used my phone and boy was that a bad experience. I would recommend a full desktop browser if people are still trying this...

    Got through and made a reservation at the Mayflower. Hoping I don't have to use it but still better safe than sorry.

    Man the OnPeak site was buggy, repeatedly got an ajax error that blanked out the page and made me sit staring at it for a couple minutes before it would load and error out again.

  • DreamwriterDreamwriter Registered User regular
    Yeah, you don't have to worry about cancellation policies until a few days before the reservation. While everything is still in onPeak, you are free to make cancellations, changes, whatever. And making those changes/cancellations helps other people get the rooms they want, so the earlier you do it the better.

    I am booked for the Saturday night at the Sheraton, but now the wife is saying maybe we should stay the Sunday night as well.

    What are the chances of me being able to get that additional night booked? When are where should I be following up?

    the chances are pretty good if you check the hotel site daily between now and pax
