    I managed to snag this...but it seems like a couple people are cancelling this specific day at the westin for some reason as it's disappeared and reappeared a couple times today.

    I really hate this new site. It is not user friendly. Hopefully they are better on the not overselling the rooms side of things.

    I'm bummed as I have an Aloft King room for Wednesday, and Thursday, And Friday-Sunday ... but they can't merge the individual reservations :( soooooo really hoping they can fix this b/c I'm not a fan of checking in and out 3 times.

    You could probably call the hotel once we get sooner to merge the reservations.

    yeah, that's what I'm hoping for. Just a pain, and there is no way I can release the rooms and have a chance at rebooking them all under one reservation without someone else scooping them up haha

    You should call or email. I semi recant my previous statement. The site is not functioning well for what I needed. But I needed several rooms, and I called and they got me setup, no problem. They were actually super accommodating and clearly have a strong customer service team. I made a ticket/email on the site and then setup up a callback time.

    I think I am gonna have to call about a Thursday at the Element. I have a Wednesday reservation, and a Fri/Sat. Been checking daily to see if a Thursday has opened up.

    I was in this exact position two years ago, with three individual bookings at Seaport. I called the hotel and explained my situation, and she was able to just remove the check in/out options on my account so it just looked like one big reservation. She said it makes no difference to them because you're already paying for every night anyways, it's just a system adjustment on their end.

    Just in case someone else runs into this. But glad to hear you were able to get it a new reservation with every day!

    Heads up y'all, the Aloft has Double Queen and King rooms available from 27th to the 31st at the PAX group rate. Just booked two double Queens for the 27th to the 31st and the representative mentioned that they had a couple more rooms available. You have to call in though as their site and the PAX hotel registration site don't show any availability. Super hyped to be next to the con again this year!

    NFG, I got one of those Aloft double-bed rooms and I'm happy to add you to the room group! I still need to make a post on the roomshare thread, but if you want to get in touch with me, my email is [email protected]

    I can't see the Westin even when I look for all hotels, regardless of space availability. Others show up, but Westin is just not on the list at all. I was just going to compare prices, but it struck me as odd. What'll happen if somebody drops Westin? That's how I got it last time...

    Anybody else seeing the same, or just me?

    Same thing. Westin isn't even showing up on the list.

    You may need to click the 'Show unavailable rooms' checkbox in the top right of the hotel list.

    I have some rooms, but I'm still holding out for a double bed Seaport, Aloft, Element, or Westin as well for my group of 4. X_X

    Even then, other unavailable ones show, but not Westin. Very curious!

    Where did you manage to get rooms, out of curiosity?

    Well I just called the hotel booking company asking if there was any possibility of a Thursday Element since I have a Wednesday night and a Friday/Saturday night, and the lady didn't seem very friendly or helpful at all. So if anyone drops a Thursday, can someone please please please let me know? Thanks.

    Appreciate it! I do have a full room of people to house though so unfortunately room shares are not an option. :P

    Yeah, this new company is nowhere near as good as onpeak. I really wish they'd switch back

    Finally got a room close to the BCEC @ the reinassance! I got screwed over when I was booking a room on the ticket drop date. Had the element all ready to check out then the site crashed. Feels good to be close to the convention center and had been staying at the reinassance the past few years. I can finally relax a little bit haha!

    Ok. I just booked a Wednesday Double Bed room at the Westin and I already have a Single Bed room at the Westin Thursday-Sunday. Does anyone know if their able to merge that to a single bed room Wednesday-Sunday. I know it's doubtful since its two different room types

    You might have to wait until the hotel gets the reservations and you will have to call them. If not, then ask at check in. You may even get a free upgrade. I did at the Element last year when my preferred bed type was sold out online.

    Just dropped an Omni Parker Double bed from March 26th-April 1st. Got a double bed Aloft room for the same time period.

    omni parker is a decent hotel too.expencive for what it is but service was good and the lugage caddys were nice.
