    I have now gotten in the hotel queue twice only to be told "You have left the queue. Click here to reenter." Sigh...

    Got a room at Olive 8 for a week. This is my first Prime, and after a bit of research figured this would be the best hotel for us. Anyone have anything positive or negative to say about it? From what I've heard, people have enjoyed staying here.

    Do they charge you instantly or will it just be a hold on your card and be able to pay a different way later?

    For some reason the hotel booking page would not accept anything but a very weak password, at least looks like you can change it after the fact and it worked

    OnPeak does not charge your card, but they may put a hold on for one night to test the payment method. Once OnPeak transfers to the hotels themselves, which happens a few weeks before pax, the hotel might do either of those things.

    Anyone know why the hotel system is kicking people out of the queue?

    No, but PAX is on it, chasing down the issue.

    Thanks Zerzhul. It was on my phone when it failed both times. My wife got through on desktop.

  • DapperPumpkinDapperPumpkin Registered User regular
    Wow, guess I was really lucky. Got in quickly when queue was only 20 people and had no problems.

  • EnticeEntice Registered User new member
    On desktop and it's only giving me PAX Dev and Exhibitor options. Back to the end of the line...

  • windfallwindfall Registered User regular
    So anyone know how strictly they'll be enforcing the occupancy counts?

  • soozerellasoozerella Registered User regular
    Has anyone gotten their email confirmation from OnPeak? I got in right away and got a confirmation page, but no email yet.

    Yeah there were only 28 when I started, then it failed the first time. For the record, my desktop also did the Dev or Exhibitor list but nothing else, whereas my wife got through.

    I reserved a room and OnPeak said "You're all set!", but I have yet to receive my confirmation email.

    No email for me. Made sure to take note of the confirmation number and made a PDF of the detailed confirmation page.

    Finally got through but Thursdays at the Sheraton are gone.

    Tried on my phone. Got to the front of the line and kept saying "waiting..." After the page refreshed a few times, it finally said I lost my place. Back to the end...again.

    Glad you got through. Hoping for everyone here! Sucks when these things go wrong - I suspect the staff are as stressed, if not more, when crap like this happens.

    That's on the individual hotels to enforce. Just remember violating them can cause a fire code issue, not just inconvenience. Violate at one's own risk.

    The OnPeak confirmations notoriously take forever. Like over an hour.

    Happened to me three times. Only got through on my work computer.

    Please continue to report OnPeak issues occurring after right now. Some things have been addressed, hopefully.

    I stayed at motif the past 2 years and it a great location. I wanted motif but when it was my turn they didnt have any quad rooms left.

    I am back in the queue. Though even if its fixed, I am pretty sure the hotel selection is going to suck. :(

    This has to be something with the mobile site, because I just tried to get back in the queue and got kicked out for a 4th time on my phone.

    Was able to book the Sheraton, but no confirmation email. My session expired and I wasn't thinking about writing down my confirmation number so hopefully there isn't an issue there.

  • EnticeEntice Registered User new member
    Finally got through...so many Thursdays sold out already. Staying 2 blocks further and ~$20 more a night than I hoped, but I guess it'll do.

  • BitTWistBitTWist Kitsap CountyRegistered User regular
    Well, 3rd times a charm, sort of. None of my top 3 picks are available for whole weekend anymore. Sucks considering how fast i got in.

    I couldn't find any information about occupancy limits on the site or on the site of the hotel I booked. I know last year we crammed like 8 people into the room, but I'm not sure how okay that was. Is there like a standard occupancy limit for all rooms or..?

    Agree. We are local so this is the first time I was looking but there are four of us total (two under age 18) so I was confused by the whole thing and abandoned ship. Next year, perhaps. Still, it would be nice to have a "home base" that's closer to PAX.

    Is the Inn at the Washington Athletic Club new? Has anyone stayed there before? If so, how was it?
