    Edit: I was successfully able to do so. You'll want to speak to in house reservations or a front desk associate. YMMV due to availability.

    how are you guys getting released hotels in the seaports area? Are you refreshing the hotel page? Calling the hotel directly? Just curious.

    so since hotels are now closing up, you would probably have to call the hotels directly at this point.

    I know one opened yesterday because I unfortunately had to cancel my trip this year... and I checked and saw it pop up on the onpeak page yesterday. It was the Seaport itself.

    Im not getting a released hotels. The hotels I had already booked have been sent from on peak to the actual hotel and I am getting actual reservation numbers from them. Although, the hotel cannot edit the reservation yet. I was told onpeak still had control over them. Idk.

    Probably. Like for the element, it says "there is a complicated rate system speak with a customer care member" etc. I was talking to the aloft earlier. They were the ones who said they could not modify or cancel any reservations.

    I called to get my double turned into a single and they said there were none available?

    Interesting... I booked a single bed and got a hotel confirmation for 2 beds :? we've never had an issue getting a single bed room since doubles are usually so in demand... did they reverse what everyone put in for or what?

    Sent you a message. Trying to do the opposite so maybe they can switch us.

    Are you sure about that? I think all of the 'standard king' rooms at the Element have a pullout sofa.

  • imnotalawyerimnotalawyer Registered User regular
    FYI - I just called OnPeak to make a modification to my reservation. They have already sent a preliminary list of reservations off to the hotels, but they won’t be sending their final lists until 3/26.

    Edit: ignore this. Posted on the wrong account AND with bad info.

    Did you book for Quad occupancy with OnPeak? I would keep calling the Element back daily and tell them each time that you have 4 people and need a room to accommodate all 4.

    Nah I don't think I chose quad occupancy. I've called a few times and they say they have nothing available to switch it too.

    Was onpeak able to make a change?

    Yes - sorry if I was unclear. You can make modifications up until they send their final list on the 26th.

    For those staying at the YOTEL, download their app! I used the same email I used for OnPeak and my reservation is showing up with a confirmation number.

    Hmm.. debating changing my reservation with some of the open hotels close by.... Normally I do the same hotel every year, and I know exactly what to do (which subway to take, which stops etc).

    If I am arriving by Amtrak at North Station... what is the subway path to get to the Element hotel? One year I had to take a bus and the silver line was some weird trolly thing and I freaked out a bit not understanding where to go, unlike my normal path its along the green line which is all super easy.

    edit: Im looking at the transport map here https://cdn.mbtace.com/sites/default/files/maps/Rapid_Transit_Map.pdf im seeing lots of line changes and me getting confused on which stops and which train to take lol

    From North Station, take the Orange to Downtown Crossing, switch to the Red Line, one stop to South Station, switch to Silver Line 1 or 2 to the World Trade center stop.

    Confirmed - Westin has reservations transferred over from onPeak - just got mine validated with a phone call. If you added your SPG rewards number to reso you should be able to see it on the SPG site as well.

    Anyone know if there's a way to add SPG to onpeak after a reservation is made? Apparently I goofed up there, and my last name lookup isn't working either (special characters in names break everything).

    Just call the hotel directly - they can add it to your reservation (I had to do that) - Or call OnPeak if they haven't transferred the reso yet.

    That’s what I called OnPeak about yesterday. Apparently they have already sent a “preliminary” list to the Westin, but they will be sending a “final” list out on Monday. Just give them a call, provide them with your OnPeak ID #, and then they’ll be able to add your SPG# to the reservation.

    Speaking of SPG... I have finally qualified for Gold status. Does anyone have any experience with this at the Westin during PAX? I have to imagine upgrade availability will be non-existent.

    Yes. Was Platinum multiple years staying at the westin, upgrades were nonexistent. Think the PA people snag most of the upgrade rooms.

    Slight update on adding my SPG points; I was feeling particularly lazy and antisocial yesterday so I just shot OnPeak an email with my info and they added my SPG account to my existing reservation that way as well. :)

    did anyone who booked the Reinassance get a confirmation from them yet?

  • MephistoN7MephistoN7 Registered User regular
    Took it upon myself to call the Westin and confirm my reservation. She said the Onpeak ID means nothing to them ("We can't see third party systems like that."), but was able to look it up by name. Locked and ready to go for next week.

    A question for past Westin attendees: They keep the sky bridge closed until after the show begins, correct?

    That's what I figured, and makes sense.
