Name: Male
Hotel: US Grant Hotel - 9 blocks from Convention Center Downtown
Days Booked: Wednesday & Thursday night - check out Friday
Price: Negotiable. I do not have a place to stay on Friday & Saturday night. I am willing to do a trade so long as the hotel in question is in the vicinity of the convention center. I was only able to purchase a Thursday and Sunday badge but I am staying in San Diego for the weekend. Visiting from elsewhere.
Smoking/Drinking: I do not smoke and request the same.
Spaces Left: 1 or 2 people depending on the room arrangement. I assume 2 queen beds will be available and would prefer to sleep in a bed separately.

Preferences and Description:
As mentioned earlier I have not received a specification on the bed layout, I assume 2 queen beds, depending on allocation you can decide the sleeping arrangement. I am traveling alone.
 
Do you have an age or gender preference for roommates?
Male or female does not matter, age 21-40 does not really matter. You have to be respectful, non-confrontational, and allow for entrance to the room at any hour of the night.

Include a brief description about yourself: I am a male 31 years old, travelling from abroad this is the second time I've visited the San Diego Comic Con. I am a friendly laid back guy. I do intend to leave the room at any hour and return at any hour. I will remain as quiet as possible in consideration for room mates. If you have any questions or concerns please let me know.

I prefer a roommate that is organized, clean, and a non-smoker.

I have my reservation confirmed I would prefer serious inquiries and offers in exchange for stay on Friday and Saturday night.

Thanks.

EDIT

Have room available on Saturday and Sunday as well. Need space for a Friday night.

Roomie found!



Name: Reshef

Hotel: Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina (3 miles from Con), It was booked as a room for my wife & myself, but she can't make it...I can ask to change the double bed we reserved for 2 singles, or ask for a roll-away, and, if push comes to shove, there will be floor space...

Days Booked: 6 nights - Monday 15th July (arriving around 7:30 pm) all the way to Sunday July 21st (check out is 12pm, but there is a bag check service...)

Price: I'm not looking to get rich off this, just recoup some of the expense, i'll take 400$ for the duration if i can get you a bed, 250$ if i can't...

Smoking/Drinking: Non smokers only please... i hate the smell of it, sorry... i'm a light drinker, at best, so would prefer like minded people...

Spaces Left: 1

What type of room is it, and how many people can it fit? single room, can fit 2 ppl

Do you have an age or gender preference for roommates? - no gender preference, but I would need to be sure that I like the person i'll be staying with...

Include a brief description about yourself: 35 y/o,writer for high tech company, married... attending my first con (best b-day gift ever from the wife)... i'm not a cosplayer or a fan of anything specific, i'm simply there to enjoy as much con as i can...wait in line for some panels, buy/get some merch, maybe a party or two, and that's about it...
I'm a pretty quiet person, can get up & out of the room in 10 mins flat...i'm also pretty sturdy (6ft 250lbs.), so i can be useful as a line buddy...

Specific behavioral preferences for roommates?: like minded person...would need to chat with you ahead of time to make sure it's a match...

feel free to message me here or on twitter @reshefshire316

Name: Reena
Looking for a room for 4 people
Days needed: Wednesday - Sunday
Smoking/Drinking: We're non-smokers and we won't be drinking. Prefer non-smokers, but don't mind responsible drinking.

Preferences and Description: There are four females, early 20s. I've been attending SDCC since 2008, the other girls have been on and off for some of the years. I'll personally be paying for all four of us, so I'm looking to find a cheap place for all four days. We can all fit on at least a full-size bed. No preference for roomates.

If people are still looking for roomies, I've seen on Craigslist that there's some people looking for a place to rent or hotel to share. They *might* not me murderers. ;)

Er...May want to avoid the craiglist especially the ones advertising housing if you looking for a place to stay. One of the boardie from differ forum nearly got scammed until he talked to real owner about it.  :-\

Just a suggestion for those with rooms available who aren't getting responses here...you might want to Tweet a link to your post here with hashtag #sdcc.  Just be ready for the onslaught of responses :)

OFFERING A HOTEL ROOM

Price: Total I paid was $1161.93, but am open to negotiation.

I have had email confirmation from the hotel that if I was to find someone to take this room, and I give that persons details to the hotel, then a name change is fine. Obviously I can provide any and all communication regarding this booking.

Cleverly forgot to add my email address - [email protected]

Looking for a room

Days Booked: Looking for Thursday night and Friday night, am fine with just friday night.
Price:N/A
Smoking/Drinking: fine with drinking, prefer non smoking


Preferences and Description:
Got tickets last minute, just looking for me. I'm a 21 year old female, I don't smoke, drink occasionally but never drunk, and I don't mind floor space. Cosplay so might take minimal space in the closet. I can't afford more than 200 for a room, but I am glad to bake and provide snacks for roommates. Help a girl go to her first Comic Con  ;)

If anythings available just message me at [email protected]


So actually have a room now (thank you priceline :D ), and offering up a spot for someone if they still need it:

Name: Teighlor
Hotel: Mission Valley Resort Hotel
Room Type: Superior Double Room With Two Double Beds - Superior Air-Conditioned Double Room. Also comes with free parking.
Age/Gender Preference: No preference for male or female roommates, between the ages of 18-30.
Days Booked: Check-in July 19th, 2013 Check-out July 20nd, 2013
Price: $120 for the night.
Spaces Left:  1 for the other bed, 2 if someone doesn't mind floor space.

Preferences and Description:
No Smokers please. I'm a 21 year old female, I don't smoke, drink occasionally but never drunk. This is my first Comic Con, and I plan to enjoy it fully. I will probably be going in and out of the room, but I will be considerate with whomever is sharing the room with me. As I mentioned when I was looking for a room, I will probably bake and bring snacks down, so you'll be free to eat those. I also cosplay so will take up a bit of closet space, but am happy to share. Just asking for someone who will be equally considerate.

If you're interested PM me or email me at [email protected]
