View Full Version : In need of room for Ani-Magic


Anele

Hello everyone.

Considering that I have heard many good reviews from various cosplayers of Ani-Magic, I am considering attending the con this year. Before it gets too near the time of the convention, I would like to ask if there is anybody in need a fellow roommate in their room (to help lower costs, of course), or anyone who would like to get a group for a room started.

My plans are to arrive either in the morning or afternoon of October 1st (Friday), and leave during the afternoon of October 3rd (Sunday).

Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I thank you in advance! ^_^

Well Anele I wish i could help you out but on the other hand I only live 25 min from the con so i am not going to really bother to room with anyone unless i can stay for free in someones room. You probably like about 40 min from the con itself. But if you like we can talk on AIM or email me alright thanks!!

Thanks, Shinji, but I am in need of an actual room, since I am considering staying the whole weekend.

I'm planning on staying the whole weekend and I actually need a room myself.

why don't you and I get a couple more roommates together and we can just all get one room?

Can I join in on this I need a room still too

Gainax Boy
07-14-2004, 10:46 PM
You're more than free to join me. We can all get a room together (pending we find a few more people).

I'm not sure what Anele wants though.. he seems to be not replying to this thread ^^

Im all cool hopefully the Army will let me have that weekend off and all that over fun junk....well when the word is official i'll check back in

*pokes Gainax* It's "she". XD

I'm registering tomorrow for Ani-Magic. We'll work out rooming afterwards, though I think I found someone to room with. Keep me in mind though, just in case things fall through! I'm no where near 100% sure yet. ^_^

Ack!! Gomen-nasai, Gomen-nasai, Gomen-nasai *bows like Excel in front an angry Il Pallattzo*

I had no idea, I'm sooo sorry ^^;;

Alright. Yeah, if 4 or 5 people who need a place to stay all get together, then we can get a room and then we'll have a place to stay ^_^

If it's you, me, Quisty-chan, and then we get 1-2 (maybe even 3) other people.. then we'll have our rooming situation all taken care of ^_^

Sakurada
07-15-2004, 02:30 AM
I might need a room, depending on what happens with my financial situation. If I do good, I'll probably get my own room, if I do bad I might be looking for a roomate. Keep me in mind!

me me I need a room for me and Andrew. Us us definitely where do I sign? and maybe one more person too.

I'm going to need a room, but I don't know if I'm going to book with cosplay friends. My sister wants to go with two friends and my mom might want to too so its possable that I will stay with them.

If someone else books the room.

I'm tired of booking rooms

Anele
07-15-2004, 02:54 PM
I will know later this afternoon if I have a room with my friend or not, so don't worry! I'll keep you guys posted on my situation! ^_^ I'm going to register for the actual convention now (*is happy*). Just so everyone remembers, TODAY is the last day for $25 pre-registration! It goes up $10 tomorrow! This will be the first time I go to two cons in a year! Last year I went only to Anime Expo 2003.

*pats Gainax's shoulder* It's fine, no worries. XD

Okay, well, I'm not going to leave you guys in the dark here. The rooming situation is still about 60/40 I would say. My friend has to do some things before he can reserve a room. Do you guys just want to start gathering a group for a room (it looks like you already have, hehe)?

*cough* I have a room *cough*

I reserved my room last year and I have almost no one in it with me, save the possibility of evilchii and I think Rouge Marvel. Last year I had Gainax Boy (and girl) in my room, so Justin you are welcome to come back. Sakurada, you're welcome as well. For the others, I'll take any nice trustworthy people who ask nicely and are willing to get to know me through AIM. ^_^

Also, I may require your share of the room fee up front, which is to be directly sent to the Hotel to begin payment of the room. Last year we had a money issue in our room and it was quiet the hassle. I want to get that out of the way ASAP so I don't have to be the one sweating over weather we'd get kicked out or not. ><

I will find out prices, which I should add will depend on how many people I have in my room. The overall room charge is split evenly between all people who stay. Thanks and good luck!

I'm still seeing about it this year because as of right now it looks like my mother is coming and booking a room. But its sort of up in the air because there might be somthing with my dad so who knows.

I do know that my buddy liz (I think you met her at the BR gathering) is planing on coming and if we don't have space with us (or my mom doesn't want to book a room and that leaves both of us hunting since I'm no longer in the room booking game) she might be up for rooming with you..or both of us..I don't know yet....we should see in the next month

I still need a room too..so..what gonna happen??

SohjiroX
07-19-2004, 08:54 PM
If your still looking for room people, I would gladly ask than if I may join up on this.

Seig Warheit
07-20-2004, 01:27 AM
Ok, I need one more person to stay in the room before I can register it. It's going to be a room at the hilton, and that's $100 a night. So far it's me, Anele, and most likely Sakurada. We need one more person. We plan to have everybody pitch in $50 to cover the costs.

Anele
07-20-2004, 02:13 PM
Seig, you will need 2 more people. As of today, I have a room (my friend and I are reserving a room at the Hyatt). And I believe we are having 2 more join us. So I am situated as far as that goes.

I wish you guys luck with finding rooms, though. ^_^ I'll let you know if anything changes, or if extra room in our room becomes available for those still in need.

Sakurada
07-20-2004, 03:22 PM
Like I told you before Seig, I still need a room. I told my mom, and she says as long as I can pay for it, she doesn't care.

Quisty_Quest
07-20-2004, 04:51 PM
Seig I'll jump on you deal..

Seig Warheit
07-20-2004, 05:00 PM
Ok, so that's 3 ppl, we still need one more. I will reserve the room as soon as we get a fourth. So far it's me, Sakurada, and Quisty. So what's up Sohjiro, you need a room still?

Quisty_Quest
07-20-2004, 05:02 PM
how far is the hilton from the hyatt?

Seig Warheit
07-20-2004, 05:05 PM
Yeah... that was my mistake. I'm getting a Hyatt room. What about you Gainax boy? Need a place still?

Quisty_Quest
07-20-2004, 05:24 PM
okay can u put that in stupid terms for me i dont feel like thinking rite now..Ohh Yea if you get the hyatt its gonna cost like $400 so I think your better staying at the hilton dude

Seig Warheit
07-20-2004, 06:02 PM
I was checking it out last night. It's $109 a night and we are staying for 2 nights. We all pitch in $50 and we're golden.

Sakurada
07-20-2004, 06:37 PM
As long as I get a few babysitting jobs before then, I should have no problem being able to pay for the room (and my ticket, and my gas, and my food.. blah.) :3

Quisty_Quest
07-20-2004, 08:10 PM
what website is it $109?? cuz at hyatt.com its 179+%10 tax

Anele
07-20-2004, 08:24 PM
You have to go through the Hyatt link on the official AM site's hotel page. ^^

Well, I've been negotiating with the various members of my household... Valencia is, say, a 35-40 minute drive from my house. For people who don't mind driving to the con and back, I'm THINKING of letting people stay at my place for free. But chances are slim. If not now, then at Anime LA, because that's a scant 20-minute drive.

Seig Warheit
07-21-2004, 12:51 AM
Wow. When is anime LA?

Sakurada
07-21-2004, 01:00 AM
February, if I remember correctly.

dEmEnTeDcHiCkEn
07-21-2004, 04:39 AM
Yeah, it's February 4-6. I'll just have one of my parents tag along with me to ani-magic, so they'll be less paranoid about it.

Now I have to figure out how many people I can have over...

Seig Warheit
07-21-2004, 06:30 PM
Hmmm.... Well... Let us know because I would definately rather spend my money on stuff/food at the con...

dEmEnTeDcHiCkEn
07-21-2004, 11:41 PM
Hmm... Let's see... At my Mom's place, there's about 2 sofas fit for sleeping on, and a guest bed. At my dad's, it's about the same situations, although I think we could work out something with sleeping bags. But there is still only a slim chance that they will consent to it. I'll just take them to the con for intros. Then again, I'll probably have school during anime LA, so it's a VERY slim chance.

07-26-2004, 01:18 AM
If a bunch of you peoples are planning on getting together and all sharing a room, then count me in on it. I'll sleep on the floor if I absolutely have to.
After Anime-Expo, I know I can't pay the full room fee by myself, so splitting the cost with people would definately be awesome.

*-Ashe-*
07-26-2004, 05:13 PM
Yesh..I mitez need a room since Niki decided to do something stupid

dEmEnTeDcHiCkEn
07-28-2004, 02:44 AM
Damn. Because of some complications with my brother being irresponsible at Comic Con, I doubt I could get a room. I might just come for a day, but I'll have to see.

Nall
07-29-2004, 04:26 PM
Hey all ^^

I'm planning to attend Ani-Magic this year, and am in definate need of a room as well. X.x;; If a room gathering is being planned, would you mind counting me in as well? I'm pretty flexible on sleeping arrangements and whatnot. Thanks! ^_^

So Seig whats the plan on the room?

YamiMegumi
08-02-2004, 11:46 AM
I need a room if possible ^^ IM me at my screen name. and let me know if anything works out with you for letting me stay in a hotel room ^^

Quisty_Quest
08-02-2004, 08:38 PM
Ok, so that's 3 ppl, we still need one more. I will reserve the room as soon as we get a fourth. So far it's me, Sakurada, and Quisty. So what's up Sohjiro, you need a room still?


hey Seig sincec i think thats you Sohjrio and I are in like all the FF gathering together..why dont we all share a room?

SohjiroX
08-02-2004, 10:08 PM
Sounds good, anyone else want to join in FF style? Its Seig's and Quisty's call though. I'm in on it for sure.

08-04-2004, 06:40 PM
There is some small chance that I will be able to go to Ani-Magic this year *crosses fingers* and I am in need of a room, so if anyone is willing to house a crazy 18-year-old female, I would be very appreciative. I will know for sure if I can go in about 2-3 weeks. Thanks in advance!

Seig Warheit
08-04-2004, 06:41 PM
I think five ppl, wouldn't be TOO much of a stretch. Since we got enough ppl, I'll be registering the room in the next couple of days. We have Sakurada, Quisty, Sohjiro, Nall, and myself. Great! :D

You're welcome in my room! :D Try and contact me through AIM or email if I don't try and get to you first.

SohjiroX
08-04-2004, 07:20 PM
Cool, I should plan something for this con like I ussually do.

Seig Warheit
08-04-2004, 07:37 PM
Like? Like what? Hmmmmm? *curious*

SohjiroX
08-04-2004, 10:19 PM
You'll see, but first off I have to make sure I have all this ready for me to go.

Seig Warheit
08-05-2004, 08:03 PM
Yeah, I'm reserving the room tonight, so all should be cool.

Quisty_Quest
08-05-2004, 08:04 PM
cool! so this should cost each of us like $50 rite Seig?

Seig Warheit
08-05-2004, 08:14 PM
Yeah. But if there is five ppl (I haven't heard back from Nall) then it'll be $40. But we have a for sure 4, so that's good.

Nall
08-05-2004, 08:42 PM
Eep, sorry. ^^; Sure, count me in!

Though just to be certain, will the room be reserved for thursday night as well? Should make it a lot more comfortable/convenient if so. ^_^;

Quisty_Quest
08-05-2004, 08:48 PM
is badge pick like at AX where you cann come a day early to get it?

Seig Warheit
08-05-2004, 08:54 PM
Nah. It's Friday and Saturday night.

Sakurada
08-05-2004, 09:13 PM
so five people? Wow, that'll be an interesting event! I definately have the money for sure now so I should have no problem. It's just a matter of getting down there... and praying to god I finish my Inuyasha costume >_<

Quisty_Quest
08-05-2004, 09:13 PM
Whats Friday and Saturday night?

Seig Warheit
08-05-2004, 09:32 PM
The room. Sunday afternoon the con ends, so I'm not gonna stick around, and it doesn't start til Friday Morning. So paying $100 extra for more nights than is needed is kinda..... dumb.

SohjiroX
08-05-2004, 09:40 PM
Not if you go a day early, that way you could be able to hang out for a bit and take some pics without other cosplayers around and get to have some fun by getting to know your roomies and such, I would pay the extra amount if it came down to it.

Nall
08-05-2004, 10:00 PM
Yeah I agree with sohjiro. ^^; Sure, staying sunday night might be a little without need since the convention is over by then, but staying Thursday night is a very good idea. People won't have to worry about getting there early enough to arrive and settle in, having to rush to get dressed up in costume and then still have enough time to attend the whole convention day and the events therein. Its also just nice to be able to sit back and relax, not have to rush, and be able to get to know your roomies/hang out/see the other cosplayers etc. Having to pay a little bit extra is more than worth it, and I definately wouldn't mind paying for the 3 days. ^_^

Maybe we can take a tally to see if the others would be willing to go for Thursday as well? The hotel rate is pretty fair, so I'm sure it would still be very affordable. ^_^


-Nall

Seig Warheit
08-05-2004, 10:07 PM
Hmm... I can do that.... As long as everybody is willing to pay extra. Any objections?

Quisty_Quest
08-05-2004, 10:12 PM
I'll pay up but then imma need someone to come get me a day early cuz I still have school Thur and Friday

SohjiroX
08-05-2004, 10:18 PM
Seig, IM me will you, I want to talk to you about that real fast.

Seig Warheit
08-10-2004, 07:42 PM
I'm going to aim you today. your not on right now, though.... I'm Squall Suprem0

Sakurada
08-10-2004, 07:48 PM
Extra $100... 5 people... $60? Sounds reasonable.

Seig Warheit
08-10-2004, 08:49 PM
Ok guys we got the room! Only one slight snag: On Thursday night we have a DIFFERENT room than we have on Friday Saturday night. We have to switch on Friday. I don't think it's THAT big of an issue, and I think we can fix it once we get there.

YamiMegumi
08-10-2004, 11:42 PM

Hey, sorry I don't have time to read through the whole thread, but I'll be attending animagic this year and will probably have to room with somebody.

I'm hoping to join a group at the Hyatt since it's the best location, and I don't care about sleeping arrangements. All I need is a place to leave my stuff and crash for a few hours, and I'll be at the con from Friday morning (unless thursday night is easier) until sunday afternoon.

Anybody still got room?

Seig Warheit
08-16-2004, 07:20 PM
Well we already have 5-6 ppl, so I don't think it would be a good idea...

We have Nall, Sohjiro, Sakurada, Quisty, and myself (and a likely 6th, Sohjiro's friend). I will be pming everybody to confirm. The price was $317, so everybody should expect to pay $60-63ish. If Sohjiro's friend does come, it'll be a little less like 55. Also, everyone who is under 18 (at actual con time, because I know it's your birthday in like 2 days Sakurada) must have written permission from their parents (I know, it's lame, but it's what my mom has stated). Also, to avoid confusion, please be ready to put in your part of the pay as soon as you get there. I will set up a meeting time in the lobby on Thursday afternoon. I think a good time would be 4:00. We also have the one wrinkle that we have to switch rooms on Friday, but I think it's a wrinkle we can iron out once we get there (We actually move to a nicer room with a view of the pool...).

Captain Jack
08-17-2004, 03:30 AM
Ah i see, well if somebody ever drops out or something comes up, and you have space, please let me know! I'm very flexible with meeting places and such.

A little reminder: The principle signing occupant of the hotel room MUST be 18 years of age or older.

Parents: DO NOT sign for a hotel room and leave it with under age occupants for the weekend. If anything happens you will be held legally responsible

A maximum of FOUR occupants per room (you might sneak in a fifth, but no more!) Trust me the Hyatt will check on this.

Well, I certainly doubt the Hyatt staff is going to be conducting door-to-door searches during the early morning hours to check the current count of sleeping bodies. ^^; Though hosting a small con, its a fairly large hotel, so there really isn't much worthy to be paranoid over.

08-18-2004, 05:07 PM
Ok Ok ok, I think we all get the point, and I may not be a mod, but I think that we should listen to AM chair but at the same time, that last comment AM was a bit harsh and I'm sure everyone gets the point. Seig, PM me so we can talk about what is going on.

AM Chair
08-18-2004, 07:28 PM
That last comment AM was a bit harsh and I'm sure everyone gets the point.

What? How? Limits to the number of people in a room are not set just make life difficult for you. There is a legitmate concern by fire officials over how many people are occupying a hotel room above the stated limit. Especially in a multi-story buliding such as the Hyatt Valencia. I have been to cons ( and prevoius AMs) where there where as many as ten people sharing space in a 4 person room. And WE have to think about those things.

So if getting the direct idea across that it is ill advised to stuff people in a room is harsh, I make no appologies for that. I'd rather hurt your feelings than see you brought out in a body bag.

Seig Warheit
08-18-2004, 07:37 PM
Yeah, I have to agree... too many ppl is not a good thing in one room....
