Need a place to Crash For Free?

Hi,

Looking for a place to crash? Low on Cash? Why not stay with your friendly neighborhood Anime Club?

OtakuArmy and NYO are providing free crash space from to all tired otaku.

OtakuArmy is covering Friday, in the lyceum on the 5th fl.

NYO is covering Saturday, in the Imprial/Juliard on the 5th fl.

We’ll have chairs and floor so you’ll need bring your own sleeping bags and pillows.
Doors open at 1am, quiet time starts at 2:30 am; check out time is 7:00am.

Don’t feel like sleeping? Come to OtakuArmy’s all night party on Saturday in the Astor Ballroom on the 7th fl. Dress to impress, may not be appropriate for younger otaku.

~Anna

hmm, otakus crashing to sleep, but no place to shower in the morning...

The T-Shirt Ninja Brigade will strike with Febreeze, you can count on it.
You won't know when
You won't know how
You won't even know it happened, til you wake up smelling fresh...
We're just good like that. We've got real ultimate power.

I was unable to secure other crash space. So around 2 am, i headed over to the juliard room on 5th. The listing on the door said NYO 1am-7am, but the hotel concerige kicked us out at like 4 am, telling us they needed to clean the room, and that we needed to go up to our own rooms. Well, not having one, we tried hiding in a different room on another level, which was moderately sucessful, until that same conceirge came around, found us, and had us removed from the hotel by security. (at about 6 am.)

We eventually snuck back into the hotel, and spent the remainder of the evening camped in the atrium lobby on the 8th floor, surrounded by other hotel staffers, none of who gave us the least problem.

However, due to the antics of that particular concerige, i was unable to get any sleep whatsoever that evening. I'm still awake from saturday morning even now, as i post this.

I have other thoughts about both the con staff and the hotel itself, but i'll post those in the thread targeted at the topic of gripes.

Indeed. My girlfriend and I went down there on Friday, and after waiting for the organizers to show up at 1, we were told that there was no such offer ever extended, and they knew nothing about this top post. This caused us a big headache and was extremely inconvenient (and appears to have been a huge lie). Now, it seems to me that there was a communication gap or something, here, and I'd be curious to know exactly what happened.

This, among many other things, made for a pretty bad con.
