South 2018 Room Shares - READ THE OP BEFORE POSTING

zerzhulzerzhul Registered User, Moderator mod
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 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.


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

Additional Notes:


I will occasionally cull posts from the thread that have been struck out or marked as no longer valid.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.

    AirBnB Home: 2 possibllties, deciding on which one, will keep apprised.
    Total Cost: $520 (Home) + $280 (Transportation) ≈ $800 ÷ X number of people. (Prices may change)
    Date Arriving: Thursday, January, 11th, 2018
    Date Leaving: Monday, January, 18th, 2018
    Number of Spots Available: 4 (+ myself =5)
    My Gender: Male
    Your Gender: Human
    Best Contact Method: Discord: Kingdom1232#7983 (Primary) or Email: Kingdom1232@gmail.com (Secondary) [Please refrain from messaging via the Penny Arcade forums i do not check here very often.]
    Additional Notes/Requests: This home is somewhat close the convention center, it is a 10 min drive both ways; to help alleviate Uber/Lyft usage I will be driving us to & from the convention center. I strongly ask that you are FOR SURE going and will not have to bail because such I ask for partial payment to ensure your spot and your seriousness of going. Please contact me if your are interested or need more information via Discord or Email.

    Update 1 11/19/17: I have found a place that is closer to the convention center, if 4 people can join I can book it and the cost per person will go down.
    Update 2 11/27/17: The new place i wanted got booked so now we have to go with the original idea. Starting to lose faith.
    Update 3 11/29/17: Going to go ahead and trash the original plan in favor of a new one. Changing locations and amount people cost will be lower, modified the Notes/Requests section.
    Update 4 12/04/17: All accommodations are on the verge of being cancelled due to low interest. Along with the need to make sure that i have place for myself to stay. Even though PAX South is still a month away.

    I've set up a Document that has some points on what may happen, this document is updated moderately:

    P.S.: Second Year doing home share.
    P.S.S. Second

    Update 5 12/8/17: Unfortunately I have to cancel this Arrangement. It is getting closer to Pax South and AirBnB homes are being booked quickly, in order for me to comfortably get a home I needed at least 2 people on this arrangement so i could book it. Pax South is a month away and I still have nobody. So I need to make sure that I have a place for me to stay (which I already do). Possibility of revival not likely.

    Have space available

    Menger Hotel
    Arriving: January 10, 2018

    Price:$186.80/night divided by x number of people
    Number of spots: 1 definite but willing to discuss floor space.
    My gender: Male
    Your gender: any
    Best contact: fortcowboy@yahoo.com

    This will be the second time I've hosted a room share since I've been going to PAX (first time was this year in Boston) and it went very well. Since it went well, I'm willing to do the room share again. The Menger is not far from the convention center and can be a cheap rate if people are interested. If you are interested, email me and we can discuss sharing a room. Also please be 100% sure you're coming to the convention.

    Thanks in advance!

I am a quiet room, good for those who want somewhere to eat, sleep, relax and shower, lol. You're on your own for parking. I will be providing some food. But I will be asking that people volunteer to bring things for the room. Everyone will get a room key. PREPAYMENT VIA PAYPAL PREFERRED. :)

    Date Arriving: 01/11

    Additional Notes/Requests: Hotel includes free parking and free breakfast, microwave/fridge, and is also closer to the entrance than hotels like the Menger or Crockett after the convention center remodeled. It also has a shuttle to the convention center if you don't want to walk the 3/4th mile.

    Also, I live in Austin, so I don't really have a need to stay the whole day on Sunday and will check out at noon.

    Date Arriving: 1/11 3pm Check in

    Date Leaving: 1/16 10 am Check out

    Slots Open: 3 as of 1/5/2018 (Space is running low!!!)

    Contact: darksolstice1379@gmail.com or 817-701-9977

    Room: 4 Bedroom Penthouse Suite, Square Footage - 1,898 to 2,260 (This is a fully furnished suite with full kitchen and 3 bathrooms not a hotel)


    Distance: Less then a mile from the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center


    So I might have over planned for this year... Currently I have 2 Penthouse Suites at Wyndham, La Cascada resort at 226 Dwyer Avenue San Antonio, TX 78204. I had filled almost both rooms up until about a week ago when a significant number of people dropped out due to money issues. Since I've already booked and paid for the suites you could imagine I would like to fill as many slots as I can so I don't end up eating the whole cost! I'll be checking this pretty regularly as you could imagine! But texting or calling me would probably be the best way to get a hold of me! As a little note, since there will be quite a few people in the space I would recommend you be okay with partying and having fun! We've had people in the past who are more antisocial in nature and I know the whole weekend was a little hard on them because of it so if you need anything unique let me know but be aware it will be more loud the quiet at times! If you need to know anything else let me know!!

    Hotel: Grand Hyatt San Antonio (Primary convention hotel)
    Total Cost: $632.78
    Your cost: $158.00 (see note below)
    Date Arriving: Fri, 1/12/2018
    Date Leaving: Sun 1/14/2018
    Number of Spots Available: 1
    My Gender: Female
    Your Gender: Female
    Best Contact Method: kbakonyi@gmail.com

    Additional Notes/Requests: There will be four of us sharing the room (which may lead to a slight price increase, the Hyatt loves to upcharge for every occupant even though the room size doesn't change). The other two room occupants are a married couple who will be sharing a bed, you'll be sharing with me, so I'd like to share with another girl, despite the fact that there is a guy in the room.
