on shaky ground, need a room!

Our room is currently on shaky ground because our roomies are sick and may not be able to attend. We paid them $120 up front for a stay in their room but they don't know if they will be able to attend and so we may not have a place to stay. Which as you can guess is very scary, this close to con time!

So, to help ease my nerves in case they really can't go, I'm posting this.

Details About Us-
Days: 1-3
# of People: 2
Names: Cass, Michael
Ages: 21, 20
Genders: Genderfluid, Male
Drinking: Possible (but we aren't bringing alcohol)
Smoking: None
Contact: Facebook- I am open to using messenger, or email me at yensidlove@gmail.com
Other Social Media: insta, tumblr

We can pay 120$ up front, either in person in cash or over paypal, for the two of us. If you would like to negotiate more, contact me.

We don't mind floor space and we are not the party type; all we need is a room to sleep in and a place to put our stuff. We each have three cosplays in tow but there aren't any huge props, just delicate wearable things and smaller props.

If you think you have space to take us in, that would be fantastic. Please let me know.

Hi I don't really know if this thread is active anymore but I'm currently trying to decide if I want to rent a room and find roommates or find a room someone already has. I'm 20 years old and genderfluid and I enjoy cosplaying, anime, and video games. My name's Leora and I'm in Colorado.

I prefer a bed-space! I'd be arriving on the 26th. Please let me know if you're interested in renting a room together or if you have space available!

Name: Freight
Hotel: Ontario Airport Residence Inn - I know it sounds odd, but I have rooms in 2 different hotels.
Dates: January 26 - January 30
Rate: $220/$150
Spaces Available: 6 (Updated 9/23/16)
Room Type: Split-Level Loft
Smoking or Non-Smoking: Definitely non-smoking
E-Mail: blackfreight03@yahoo.com

Details about me: I'm a 39-year old male who will be attending Anime Los Angeles for the 7th time. I've gone to the Anime Expo from 1993 to 2010 and 2012 to 2016, AM2 2011, San Diego Comic-Con from 2013 to 2016, and Fanime in 2011 to 2013 and 2015 to 2016 with other odd conventions here and there.

My simple philosophy about rooms is that if you go, you should only have to pay the money requested and show up. I'll take care of getting the rooms squared away. At AX 2005, the Hilton at Anaheim said they were overbooked and I had to take a set of smaller rooms. I managed to talk them into giving us a suite parlor to replace one of the rooms for no extra cost.

I've also led a suite full of otaku at AX 2006, and I still look at that as the most fun I've had for a convention. If I can get enough people together to do that again at another hotel, I would do it in a heartbeat.

I'm called a fair and attentive leader, and I will be available for any questions.


What rooms do you have? Split-Level Lofts with full refrigerators and kitchenettes.

How long is the stay? January 26 to January 30

Are the rates per night or for the whole stay? It's for the whole stay. I do not have a per night rate.

When would payment be due? I ask that payment be sent about a month prior to the convention. This gives me time to turn payments into cash for the hotels, as well as weed out any last second drop-outs. Besides, it makes it easier to keep other people's money separate from mine until necessary.

How do you like payment? I prefer checks or money orders. If cash is sent in the mail and the postman loses it, it's lost for both you and me. Checks or money orders can be traced by the sender, or cancelled and retrieved, if necessary.

Do you accept Paypal? I avoid it unless I have no other choice. I ask that you send it as a "Friends/Family" item to so the fees associated with it are handled on your end. Any other way, and they can take a serious chunk out of the hotel monies.

Aren't you a bit... um... old? That's a fair question. Simply answered, my inner child and I get a long pretty well, so I still collect anime and comic books, watch professional wrestling, cosplay, and hang out with a lot of younger people. If you see me talking to a bunch of 20-somethings, I'm not having a mid-life crisis. I just relate well.

I'm a girl and I don't want to room with guys... Not a problem. I have one girls only room currently set up. When you contact me, please mention you're interested in this specific set-up, and I'll give you the details.

I'm under 18... Can I still go? Sure. I'll take people as young as 14, but if you are between 14 and 18, I HAVE TO SPEAK TO YOUR PARENTS FIRST. This is non-negotiable. It sounds very over-bearing, but if you're a minor, you lie to your parent/guardian about where you are, and you're found with me and/or my friends, that's a potential kidnapping charge on the adult(s) you're found with, and that's a great way to ruin a convention.

What is your cancellation policy? I totally get life happens and unexpected things pop up like money troubles or friends suddenly inviting you to go. If you can decide if you're cancelling by the end of May, I'd appreciate it. Though, I'll accept your cancellation up to a week before the convention. However, it's very hard to guarantee a full refund within a week of the convention. The reason for this is there's other people counting on everyone paying their fair share.

What's the rule about drinking? I don't mind social drinking or fun drinking, but I don't condone getting fall-down drunk. Also, NO MINOR DRINKING, PERIOD. If you're an adult who gives a minor alcohol, we'll have a few unkind words, and I won't hesitate to involve the authorities.

NEW RULE! (2/21/16) I am very against drugs! Last year, I went to a convention and had to help out 2 people roofied at a party, so drugs are on my bad side. You want to see me angry? Bring up drugs to anyone in any of my rooms and it gets back to me? It will not be fun...

Someone I'm rooming with is getting on my nerves... Bring anything like this to me. I'm a decent negotiator and I will handle all issues like this. Few things can make a weekend more tense than people irritating each other and drawing lines in the sand. Even if it doesn't get to fighting, you're giving the cold-shoulder to someone else, and everyone else in that room will get frustrated and caught up in it. That's not fair to everyone in that situation.

"Um... I broke something in the room." This should be a no-brainer, but be prepared to pay for it. I also inspect rooms quickly before I check them out. The reason for that is if these things are reserved with my credit card and something comes up broken, I have to pay for it. I limit my risks by being careful.

What happens if I break "the rules?" I escort you out. Not out of the hotel or the convention, but out of my room block. No refunds and no arguments. You're out.

Any other questions, please feel free to ask.

I'm looking for a room for the con!

Dates wanted: 26th through 29th (Day 0 - Day 3)
Space: floor is fine!
Drinking/smoking: Not for me, but I don't care if you are as long as you're not going crazy
Other: Hoping for a non-partying room

Me: Dude in my 20s, LGBT-friendly, laid back and ready to have fun at the con! I'm in the Artist Alley this year, so I'm not even sure I'll have space to bring cosplay, but at the very least it means I shouldn't take up a lot of room and I'll be super organized.
My other social media: twitter.com/amarokster amarokster.tumblr.com

If you might have space for me, please send me a message here or e-mail me at amarok.tristalli@gmail.com. Thank yoouu!

I have two spaces left in my room it'll be Jan 26 - 29. There's free breakfast all three mornings. We will be checking in late on Thursday because I have to go pick up my friend at the airport. We're both female; 20 and 24. We're pretty calm, we don't drink or smoke of any kind. You will get a bed, no need to worry about floor space. Send me an email for more information like pricing, distance, etc. Thank you!

I currently have a room at the Ramada Ontario Airport, basically right up the road from the Con. I have one bed and an unknown amount of floor space available. Dates are January 26-29th.

Price is unknown until I get roommates.

If I only get one roommate, the price will be $140.
If I get two, it'll be $96.
Three roommates, $72.
Any more than that, and we'll be looking at much lower prices.

I will need payment at check in or earlier, no exceptions, as I will need to deposit the money into the bank as soon as possible.

Full disclosure, I do snore, quite loudly, so I'm sorry about that. Bring earplugs if you need them. Also, if you seem to be sick before the convention, I will not be letting you into the room. Had an instance where a roommate gave everyone the con flu and I'd really rather not spend any of the con sick again. Finally, this will not be a party room. If you want to drink, you can, but no partying, as I want to get to sleep at a decent time so we can be up early enough to hit the convention.

Hopefully I can get at least one person, or a couple of people, to join me. Also, I do look forward to making some new friends, hopefully, in the process.
