No worries,
I hope you're able to find a room downtown! Keep an eye on the forum things have been popping up but they're grabbed up quickly too.
Good luck!

I know it's a long shot & not sure how it can be done even if there is an interested party but:

My group has two rooms at Marriott Marquis & Marina but would rather stay at Embassy Suites San Diego Bay or Residence Inn Gaslamp quarter.
 
Current Res:
Rm 1: Marriott Marquis & Marina 7/17-7/22 1 King or 2 Double
Rm 2: Marriott Marquis & Marina 7/17-7/20 1 King or 2 Double
Through TP so reservations are 'cancelable' before 4/30 and I believe dates can be adjusted based on availability. Two nights deposit has been paid.

Willing to trade for either at Embassy Suites San Diego Bay Residence Inn Gaslamp quarter (queen bed w/ pullout sofa sleeper):
Only caveat is that we cannot be in smoking rooms, allergies.
One 2 bdrm suite for dates 7/17-7/22     
<OR>
Two single rooms for dates 7/17-7/22 & 7/17-7/20

If anyone has the rooms & wants to swap, pm me & we'll see if it's possible. Thanks!

Newbie12, I sent you a PM re we have a room at the U.S. Grant Hotel (nonsmoking hotel) in the Gaslamp area we would trade for Marriott Marquis & Marina.

We have a "1 King or 2 Double beds" reservation through Travel Planners at the U.S. Grant hotel from July 17 to July 21, 2013 (my understanding is the dates can be extended) that we would like to trade for the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina or the Hilton San Diego Bayfront, the Hard Rock Hotel, the San Diego Marriott Gaslamp Quarter, or the Residence Inn Gaslamp Quarter.  We have already paid two nights' deposit via our credit card. 


@KatDancer and newbie12:
Let me know if you have successfully swapped hotel rooms.  (Posting in this thread is fine.)  Otherwise, I can add both offers to the first post.

Thanks!

Hilton Bayfront has provided their link via twitter and FB again for $599/nt rooms.  To book, visit... You are not allowed to view links.

Rooms are definitely still available at that rate. If you haunt the Marriott site, you can find rooms there too for $650 or $675 per night.

Certainly.  You're welcome.  Yep, I'll keep checking this thread and updating the first post as necessary.  (There might be in a point in late May where I will stop though, ha ha.)

Your offer will be added to the first post.

I booked two rooms at the Manchester Grand Hyatt for July 13 - 22.  It is $229/night/room but to get that rate I had to arrive the 13th.  Anyway, we have a smaller group going and need just one room so I no longer need the second room.  It is an ADA King room.  I can just cancel it if no one is interested but thought I'd put it out there just in case....

The scoop:
Manchester Grand Hyatt
July 13th - 22nd, 2013
ADA King room
$229/night

We booked a room last August but my husband wasn't able to get the approved time out of work and the hotel says if we cancel, they'll still charge us one night.

So, if anyone wants to take over the reservation (it was booked Wednesday - Sunday), it's for a non-smoking 1 queen bed at the Inn at Sunset Cliff.

My husband works 3rd shift and I'd have to ask him if he remembers how much the room was reserved for, but it was pretty cheap.  If interested in details, email me directly - I'm not a regular user of this forum and I'm bound to forget to check here.
