The fridge has never been locked in our room so we use them. We also have the I bed and 1 pullout bed option for the room. I'm not sure what the deluxe rooms have but usually you get charged if you eat something provided in the room as a hospitality service.

The one year in the Rad you used the fridge in room DireKitty.

I hope that is not the case though, cause like you, I really want to store some food and water in there during the convention.
no extra charge... we've had them all 3 years we've stayed in all rooms we booked (total of 4 in 3 years) ... we load them full and there's never been an extra penny added to the cost of the room...

Were they already turned on when you got there? Or Did you have to do it yourself?

We are calling tomorrow mostly about the Fridges to see if our room has one or not. No use in bringing food for lunches if we can't keep it cool after all. We only have one room as well.

typically the fridges are free and ready to use. however if theres stuff in the fridge then the hotel will charge you if its removed from the room when you guys check out.

Do most of the sit down restaurants take reservations for large groups during the weekend? Not HUGE...but... 15-20?

I'd consider 15-20 to be borderline huge (2010, my boyfriend and I among others had an hour wait for a table at Milestones, and not even during the dinner rush, because there was a group of FIFTY people... many peeved-off congoers there, and I feel bad for the waitresses)... and yeah, most aren't accepting reservations due to the huge amount of congoers. Especially the sushi restaurants. My suggestion is waiting until the main dinner hours (usually around 6-8) have passed, then it may be less crowded.

I'm hearing rumours of people getting pretty sick from undercooked Harvey's burgers. Any personal anecdotes about that one?

Never eating at sushi dragon again if it's Friday or Saturday. Too damn long a wait for both a seat and your food, every single year since 2010 I've had my order screwed up, you practically have to yell at the staff for minuscule things like another cup of tea or to ask how long a wait is left... nope. Trying sushi ya next year (unless you have deep pockets, a small stomach AND a love for searing hot spice, don't ever eat at ginkgo.)

Swiss Chalet is always my first choice. The service was good on Friday and it was quick and not busy at all even at dinner hour. I think Friday at AN wasn't as busy as other Friday's in the past.

I got to eat at Harvey's twice this year, things surprisingly weren't as crazy packed and busy as they have been every other year. Other than that, I pretty much just ate stuff I brought with me from home, Japanese snacks and ice cream. Got a couple of awesome hot dogs on the final hour of Sunday too.

Yeah I felt the same about Harvey's this year as well. Went once or twice, and it was a rather in and out experience, unlike previous years where I recall having waited for quite some time, let alone finding a seat.
