Will there be storage lockers at PAX? I'll be checking out of the hotel early to save money but I don't want to carry around my luggage for the last day.

Thanks for reading/answering

    There isn't, but depending on the amount, if you signed up for the BYOC, you might be able to use that to store stuff temporarily. reasonable security (other byoc members only allowed in), and it'll last until pax closes. I doubt they'll be happy if it's like 4 suitcases, but something that fit under the desk probably owuldn't be a problem. most people at the byoc store swag with their pc...

    There used to be the goat check, but they've done away with that. There is no longer any checked storage at PAX itself. However, a hotel *may* hold your bags for a while, you could check that out.

    Yeah if you ask the hotel nicely after you check out they will hold your bags for you for the rest of the day until your flight.

    Last year I arrived at the Sheraton @ noon, but couldn't check in until 3. The front desk lady was nice enough to watch my bags while me and my friends wandered the town for a few hours.
    Just wish the rest of the hotel staff showed the same level of courtesy.....

    They do...until they realise that their hotel will soon be swarmed with folks like us.

    ...And then even more of a realisation that we would seriously clog up their front lobby at the end of the convention.

    I have nil sympathy for them. Next time I pax, I'll be staying at the Inn at Queen Anne. I had a MUCH better experience there.

    Only about 2 miles. As cheesy as it sounds, my wife and I like long strolls. And we absolutely love the scenery in Seattle.

    Ah, the old goat check sign. I checked a bag there once. When I picked it up, I was asked what it looked like, I responded "a black backpack." She gave me a look and said, "we have lots of those."

    Double-Check with your hotel before you book, but I've never stayed at a hotel that DIDN'T have a place to store baggage.
