Yo, all. I'm in a bit of a predicament. 2 people dropped out of our hotel room, it being a double room at the San Jose Marriott, the hotel affiliated with the con center. Thus, the 3 of us remaining cannnootttttt afford the place!!!!

So I'm in need of a little help. I need to know of a cheaper hotel close to the con center. We have a car and won't mind a drive, albeit only a small one. I see a fat listing of San Jose hotels, but I don't know how close they are to the con center and don't feel like mapquesting each one.

Lastly, if people are looking for a room, you'd be quite welcome under a few circumstances. FIRST -- you muuusssstt pay, because we all have to go pay tuition and rent and this is costing us enough as it is.

Secondly, due to not being able to miss work and midterms, we'll be arriving Friday afternoon. We're checking into the hotel on Friday, but you'd have to wait for me to arrive first since the room is in my name. Sooo that'd be around 2ish on Friday that we'd be arriving. You'll be missing a little of the con, but they may let you check your stuff in or something. We're checking out on Monday. (2 guys and a girl).

On that note, if anyone's wanting 3 more people to lower the cost of THEIR rooms, we'd be interested. As I said, 2 guys and a girl, the girl (me!) age 19, the guys age 19 and 23. The 23 year old is my boyfriend (so he'll behave!), and the 19 year old is really nice and quiet and often shy. (He'll be cosplaying a white mage, think of it that way).

Sooo yeah! If anyone has offers, advice, ANYTHING, pleeaaaaase respond to the post or PM me or whatnot! Thaaaaaaanks!

There's a hotel called the Alameda and it's located at:
1050 The Alameda
San Jose, CA

Rooms start at $65/night, but I think that's for a single room. That hotel is 1.5 miles away from the con, so you could drive or walk!

Hey, does anyone need a room? I'm looking for about 1 maybe 2 more people. It's for all 4 days of the con... So depending on how many I get, it'll be $110 if I get one other person and $88 if I get two more... Let me know, IM me, or PM me. Thanks.
