View Full Version : Hotels and Roommates

10-08-2002, 09:09 PM
I was thinking about something.

Since AX03 occurs on the 4th of July and is a huge event, many hotels are going to fill up early.

I was thinking we could use this thread to post information about hotels in the area and the possibility of cosplay.com members who will be making the trip by car or jet to the Expo maybe bunking up together to save money.

As for myself, I know the Super 8 across the street from the convention center charges around 50 a night (at least thats what it was when my grandparents went to Disneyland a couple of weeks ago.)

If a few people get into groups of two or three (heaven forbid, four :) ) to room together we could all probably stay at the same hotel and get a group discount.

This means more money for the con! :D

I was alone last year, and aside from being expensive it was kinda lonely, lol.

I haven't done my hotel research yet, really need to; I hear good things about the . . . err, something "Islander". It has the minifridge, microwave, iron action going on that's good to have for the congoer (if not musts). I don't know, sorry, just overheard other people talking about it a while back so . . . ^^;

Well, unless you know the person, or are feeling REALLY adventerous, it probably wouldn't be a good idea to bunk with members of the opposite sex.


But all you ladies, dont worry. I'm a perfect gentlemen. ^_^

10-08-2002, 11:04 PM
Wah. I really need to get thinking about this hotel stuff or I'll be stranded! Must...remember...to plan... in advance... Anyway. rooming with other people would be just lovely. I need to save as much money as possible, provided that I actually save enough in the first place to drag myself cross-country...

10-08-2002, 11:23 PM
Yes, I know, Kusanagi. lol. I can fend for myself if need be. Especially since I will have WEAPONS at this AX. MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!


10-09-2002, 01:34 AM
lol....i wouldn't mind going in on a room. ^_^

10-09-2002, 05:02 PM
You male or female, katchoo? ^_^

10-10-2002, 05:34 PM
I book the Islander... looks nice... My little brother and best friend are going with me so it'll be fun with someone ^_^

10-23-2002, 04:26 PM
Heres the best link that I could find since AX doesnt have its website updated yet (geeze its only 9 months until the con, they need to get on the ball!!!)

Im looking at the Dupre Hotel for big groups, because mine is going to be around 6 or 7.

As soon as they post up hotel info on the AX website, book it! They fill up fast! I usually book rooms at the hotel right next to the convention center because of the proximity.

10-23-2002, 09:29 PM
lol...I'm female, but since I am 26 I don't think I should room with anyone under 21. But if you are 21 and over and wouldn't mind creating the party room, let me know!!!

katchoo ^_^

10-23-2002, 10:01 PM
im probably going to end up just getting a room for myself, by myself. but i havent looked at any hotels yet...

i emailed the address given at the site for registration info, but they never emailed me back. are yall people registered, or is not open yet? this is my first con, so i wanna make sure i get registered and stuff on time... HELP!

10-23-2002, 11:07 PM
Nope registration hasnt opened yet! Dont worry. I mean it is 9 months away.

10-27-2002, 10:23 PM
Okay, okay, so I'm definitely going to AX even though its a kazillion miles away and I am looking for 2 people who might want to share a room with my friend and I. We're both girls, are probably looking for gal roomies and so on. If anyone wants to do this, you need to be 100% sure that you are going, because we can't afford to have anyone bailing out at the last minute. Anyway, I don't wanna clog up the board, so email (yuki-chan@kuririnmail.com) or AIM (twosadsexually) me if you want more info!

Heres my scary Expo-ness story...
Last year in march, my friends and i got this crazy assed idea to go to AX2002... so basically we made the best last minute arrangements we could and went... but we had some SERIOUS problems... Like first, AX02 was on long beach, which in my opinion is, well, for lack of a better word, scary. especially for a bunch of 17 year old out of towners.. (And a bunch dressed in weird clothing for that matter) Plus, in our haste, we didnt get a room at the Hyatte, where it was last year, and ended up staying in a hotel a few blocks away.. One night, at like 2AM our friend, just didnt happen to make it back to the hotel, so we all FREAKED OUT, (Naturally) and went on the insane hunt to find her.. but 330 we found her ASLEEP in a CHAIR in THE LOBBY of the westin hotel.
After that fun little expierence... well... we decided we were staying at the hotel where the con was at... safety is worth a few extra bucks.
As far as hotels go... The room space for the Hilton is sold out... we got out rooms in mid october, and there was about 20% of the hotel left for AX03.

If you go there and poke around the page, you can get hotel listings and stuff. There are tons of hotels/motels around there, since DisneyLand is like two feet away.

I already made reservations too, but I'm being cheap and staying at the Islander. It's close enough. Cheap enough too, but I'm still willing to shove a few more people in that room. He he.

Are people still getting rooms together? I was thinking of driving each day, because it's xmas time and I can't reserve the room just yet. But if there are groups of people staying at a cheaper hotel maybe we can create a party atmosphere there. hmm just thinking.. I would like to stay close to the action so I can meet more of you.

12-10-2002, 11:42 AM
I need a room now too.

12-10-2002, 01:01 PM
Well, I am willing to go in on a room. *if you don't mind being with a girl*. Do we have any takers?

12-10-2002, 01:07 PM
I'd room with ya. I really don't care about the Gender. Don't worry, I'm a gentleman.

12-10-2002, 01:10 PM
lol...I'm not worried. We'll probably have two beds in the room, so we could fit a couple more maybe....

*who should we call to make the reservations at? Kusanagi
mentioned a certain hotel, but I can't remember which one.

12-10-2002, 01:20 PM
Let me look at the website?

We have 3 options.

Anaheim Hilton
Anaheim Marriott
West Coast Anaheim

And I think you should make the reservations Katchoo. In case something happens to my plans and I have to pull out.

12-10-2002, 05:47 PM
Ara, the Hilton might be booked already, u should check :\

12-10-2002, 06:54 PM
I need a room as welll... I'll room with anybody. Not like I know anyone who's going, besides Will, Studmaster, and Ayaka ^^;

12-10-2002, 07:29 PM
Unlike both other years I attended AX, I am going to book a room. Oshi (what am I, chopped liver? I know you and I'm going) or Studmaster, if you still need a room, you can stay with me. I will try the Hilton or Marriott... ^^

12-10-2002, 07:46 PM
Room problem may be solved. ^_^

12-10-2002, 08:12 PM
Oh, geez, sorry I forgot about you Celine ^^;;; Yay!

12-10-2002, 10:29 PM
oops sorry celine, didn't know they had plans already. It's not a big thing for me to have a room, because I live rather close, but I really can't want to meet people and would love to be able to stay out there and party.

12-10-2002, 10:40 PM
You can stay with us Katchoo.

12-10-2002, 10:44 PM
Really??? wow yay!!! How cool?!! Thank you so much. how fun!

12-10-2002, 11:41 PM
Ah, Katchoo, I wasn't trying to exclude you or anything... I was just offering to those two if they were stuck without a room, since I've met them in person and know them pretty well, because I am very uncomfortable staying with people I don't know well. ^^

12-27-2002, 02:39 PM
ah *run around* I forgot about the hotels >.< @_@ *panics?*

12-28-2002, 04:30 PM
I will stay with Tohru!! :D

12-28-2002, 06:29 PM
Ok Shashu! ^-^; yay *does happy dance*^^;;

01-13-2003, 05:04 PM
I live pretty close too, but I am definently down for going in on a room because I like to meet new people, and being at the Con the whole time would be awesome. Anyways if anyone is interested e-mail me or catch me on AIM or whatever. I am a 21 year old male btw.

Whee, I had to do alot of fun faxing. :: had to book three rooms at the WestCoast. Mainly because it was the cheapest con hotel. Has poo' people in his group :: And it's only 1/2 a block away...and 32 bucks a night saves some cash. Not only that....there was no way I could pay for a night in advance.@_@ to book the Hilton.
