PAX Hotel Room-Share Thread

edited September 2008 in PAX Archive
The hotels have been announced, so here it is, your PAX 2008 Room-Share thread. Here's how it works, if you have a hotel room with space to fill, use this format

HAVE SPACE AVAILABLE
Hotel/Venue:
Date Arriving:
Date Leaving:
Spots available:
Notes:
My Gender:
Your Gender:
Best Contact Method:

If you need a place to crash for you and/or your friends, use this format

NEED A PLACE

So, that's pretty much it. Please keep posts in this thread to either looking for space, or have space available posts. To talk about the hotels, use the hotel discussion thread.

Important quote below
This is my annual plea to please use the hotels linked from this page: http://www.pennyarcadeexpo.com/hotels.php

Reason: the City of Seattle (and the convention center) measure the success of PAX by the number of hotel rooms booked. Kind of weird, but that's how they do it. The only way for us to track that number is by you guys using the discount codes--specifically, the PAX discount codes--for the official hotels.

If you book elsewhere, or book through a reseller like Hotwire, or use a AAA code or some other random discount, then you're not counted. That warrants a sad face because unless we show a big number to Seattle, they won't let us have more room next year.

So, please: use the official hotels. They're awesome, they're familiar with PAX, they're deeply discounted, and they're the closest hotels to the convention center.

Thank you!!!

    It's too bad that they do it that way... I mean, I bet if all the PAX attendees booked at those hotels, we'd have all three filled up and would need more room elsewhere. Seattle's low-balling us! =(

    If history has taught us anything, Khoo and Feh will have to negotiate with those hotels for more rooms and other hotels as well as the year wears on.

    Oh! And also, the rates we offer you can actually get refunds on, whereas places like hotwire and such don't have cancellation policies if something pops up.

    Indeed. you can book your hotel and cancel like 24hours in advance. Not that you should DO that but it's worth it to book it now and not have to worry if you find out in 5 months you cant go.

    HAVE SPACE AVAILABLE
    Hotel/Venue: 1 bedroom apartment in Kent
    Date Arriving: n/a
    Date Leaving: n/a
    Spots available: 1 full size futon, one couch, and lots of floor
    Notes: See below
    My Gender: My wife and I
    Your Gender: Either/or
    Best Contact Method: [email protected]
    Cost: Negotiable

    My wife and I are opening up our 1 bedroom 820squarefeet apartment for the PAX weekend. We are located in Kent (20 miles south of downtown Seattle). Now I know it's not next to PAX, but for those who don't have much cash, or don't care about the party scene, this might be for you.

    We are located 2 miles from Kent Station (Bus station), and there is a bus that leaves from Kent to downtown Seattle every 15 minutes (takes about a hour from Kent to Seattle). What I would probably do is try to arrange everyone staying to pile into my car and travel down to the bus station. If you want to go earlier, there is a bus that goes from my apartment down to the bus station. I believe the last bus leaving Seattle runs at 1am.

    The cost right now is negotiable. I will probably set a firm price later on, but it will be noticeably cheaper then the hotels. Also, my wife may cook breakfast :-D

    Also, we do have a cat. If that's a problem...well this might not be for you.

    We are willing to host around 3 to 4 people depending. If you are flying into Seattle, we may be able to arrange some sort of transportation to/from Kent.

    Please be sane. Also we have a shower. Please use it.

    Date Arriving: Thursday August 28
    Date Leaving: Monday September 1
    Spots available: 1
    Notes: Non-smoking room, 21 or up preferred but we can discuss that. Booked to conincide with the CCST so if you're going to be a part of that or it's your first time and are attending by yourself (like I am) think that would be cool too.

    Date Leaving: Monday September 1
    Spots available: 1-3.
    Notes: Non-smoking room. Currently it's just myself, and I'd like to share with at least one person, but I'm not adverse to having Three to four people total in a room to cut costs. All I really care about is that we're all respectful of each other. I would also prefer 21+ in case we decide to party but this is negotiable.

    Hotel/Venue: Seattle Sheraton
    Date Arriving: Thursday afternoon
    Date Leaving: Monday morning
    Spots available: Two
    Notes: Other then the fact that I don't have a solid number of how many spots are open. The room is non-smoking, and hopefully you don't mind a sleeping bag. I am 21+ if that is something you'd like to know. I tend to be a pretty silly guy and a late sleeper too... just as a warning. I'll be bringing either a Wii, 360, or both. However I'll defiantly need controllers for both, and good games are always valued.
    My Gender: Male
    Your Gender: Doesn't matter
    Best Contact Method: AIM at Crustyrailgun2, over PM, or possibly email (ask over PM for it). Email though isn't the best since I check it pretty irregularly.
