Herm. Not bad but annoying nonethelesss. I will have to consult friends on if we should book elsewhere. I imagine this is trying to prevent people from booking then cancelling when they get a spot at the Delta.

I imagine the Sheraton and Rad will open before the Delta will then.

Yeah, I've kind of reached the point of indifference, honestly. If I can't get a room, oh well, I'm not going to worry about it and will just drive back and forth. I'm done with trying to figure out how they do things/dealing with hotels that don't care about opening early/booking and cancelling back-up rooms/etc.

I really, really wish they would adopt a system similar to Blizzcon where all of the hotels go on sale at the same time (through one singular booking engine) and then people search/book through there.

Yeah PAX East has the same thing and it was wonderful. If the they wanted to AN could have that set up. I've asked because I don't want to deal with this crap every year; but didn't get a positive response.

I can't drive back and forth since I live in London. QQ

I would love it if they could adopt that same system. It would make getting a hotel less stressful each year. I live between London and Windsor so driving each day is also not an option for me.

@DireKitty: Thank you for at least asking. Maybe if enough people start requesting the same thing, they might eventually be able to do something (wishful thinking on my part).

Yeah, need a room as well with taking public transit I would need to spend 6 hours a day to travel...

Unlike with FanExpo with the greyhound bus dropping me off at Front Street.

At least Fan Expo opens their blocks in spurts for the closer hotels.
I booked mine in January this year before the prices went up. I never have issues getting a hotel for Fan Expo (maybe it's the price, pfft, whatever) but for AN it's ridiculous.

I know a LOT of it has to do with certain a-holes booking up to 10 rooms at a time. I know a specific person who does this. Then they get people in their rooms, and charge more so they can make money off the room to pay for their stay and pay for their fun. Like a bloody landlord.

Just booked my rooms at the Sheraton:
  • $155 (+tax)/night for a King or 2 Queen room (I had double occupancy, so I'm not sure if it increases for additional guests)
  • Deposit of one night's stay (per room) due when booked ($155+tax)
  • Can cancel up until May 23, 2017

Hope this helps someone

So anyone know how far "in advance" the hotel info will be posted on the website? We only have two days before they are suppose to open hotel registration and nothing (as of this post) has been added to the website. I may just call hotels on August 2nd and see what happens.

No idea. I saw a few people asking about it on Facebook as well, but there hasn't been any response that I've seen. With it being a long weekend I have my doubts anything is going to show up before Tuesday.

They finally updated something on their website. Here's what they posted.

"Just a reminder that hotel booking information for Anime North 2017 will be available the morning of Tuesday, August 2 on the Anime North website. Please don't try to contact the area hotels before that date as they will not be able to help you until the block officially opens."

LOL, racers take your starting positions!
