Post here if you are looking to share your room, or looking for a room to share. Please keep your posts up to date!

YOU MAY NOT POST HERE TO TRADE ROOM SPACE FOR BADGES.

You get ONE post in this thread per UNIQUE room share situation. Do not re-post your offer/request. Re-posts will be deleted if not pre-approved by moderation staff.

If you need to modify your post and cannot edit it yourself (accounts below a certain participation threshold), PM me and I will make the edit for you. Not having permission to edit is not a valid excuse for re-posting.

If you *really* think you have a good reason to post for a second time, PM me first.

This is not a discussion thread; ONLY POSTS IN THE DESCRIBED FORMATS BELOW WILL BE ALLOWED.

If you have a room and want to fill space, use this format:

I will occasionally cull posts from the thread that have been struck out or marked as no longer valid. I will try to do this as necessary, but there will not be a hard schedule for this purpose. This will mean that there should not be a wall of inactive posts to sift through in order to find active ones. Also it means that if someone had a post that was culled from early on, they can freely re-post it later if things went south. If you abuse this, your ability to post in this thread will be revoked entirely.

    Your Gender: don't care
    Best Contact Method: email isaiaht@gmail.com with subject including "pax unplugged hotel"

    Additional Notes/Requests: I'm a longtime PAX East-goer, and super excited for the very first PAX Unplugged! I love board games a lot, but if you're here you probably do, too. :) I'm 33 and don't smoke and don't generally party, but if you do that's cool so long as you are able to be not insane in the room. Since this is the first PAXU I'm not yet sure how things are going to work out with timing, but assuming there are pre-PAX activities like at East, I've booked Thursday as well, for now. Happy to get more people in to bring down the cost; the rooms look pretty big and include a sofa. Plus there's a kitchen!

    EDIT 11/3/17: we are up to four total, which means we have a bed spot for one more, and another floor spot as well.

    Additional notes: Been a PAX West and South regular, done room shares in the past most recently with Godmode, Tonkka and Grey Ghost on these very forums, who can vouch that I'm not completely disgusting. Non-smoker, not much of an after hours party guy, mostly just looking for a place to park my body at night and catch a shower in the morning. I don't mind sharing a bed, but a solo bed or couch would be ideal because I am big and have pointy elbows. I prefer to get into town early enough to have a full day to do tourist stuff, but I'm mostly timing this to match whenever a room is available.


    Edit: Room found, thanks!

    Additional Notes/Requests: I am an Enforcer looking for roommates. The hotel is very close to convention center, less than 10 min walk. 2 spots on a King bed available, I will be on a rollaway. WI-FI, a space to chill out/rest/sleep, no crazy partying but its fine to be social at night, I don’t snore. I have a request in for a two queen room but the hotel cannot guarantee it. So it's possible there will be no bed sharing. Paypal, Cash.

    Notes:
    I'm thinking about getting a room In Courtyard Philadelphia with a couch and king. I'd be happy to either split the king (plenty big enough that I've never really had a problem with anyone rolling around) or take the couch. I'd be interested in getting one or two people on the floor as well. The cost would be 1000 split however many ways we can make it
    Another option is a little further away (4 or 5 blocks) at only 550 for both nights. It's just got the one bed.

    I've already messaged a couple people, if you're interested let me know and I'll grab it.

    Hi All, I'm looking for a room! It's just me, no partying or late nights planned, just giving a workshop, playing in a tournament, and showing my illustration portfolio around. I can take floor space if I can set up my sleeping bag. Let me know!

    Additional Notes/Requests: There's only 1 bed in the room, but I should be able to get a roll-away. So one of the spots would be for the roll-away and the other would be a floor spot, unless you're comfortable with sharing the bed. Also, no snorers, please. I have a very hard time falling asleep if I have to listen to that.

    Additional Notes: I've got a reservation for ~$200/night at a hotel other than the official convention hotels, and the reviews are making me less than excited about the prospect of staying there. Deadline for cancelling my reservation is 4PM EST 11/15 so if I can't find an alternative by that time I'll delete this post/am no longer looking.
