I didn't get any e-mails for either round. Should I be getting e-mails saying I'm on the waitlist?

Yes (presuming that you ticked the box that requested the waitlist when you filled out the lottery form). I believe that the deadline to hear about the waitlist is tomorrow.

I did tick that box. This is confusing and a little frustrating.

Ugh. I definitely marked that I would like to be included on the waitlist, but have not yet received anything and I did check my spam folder.

I didn't get access to the hotel request list until probably 9:08-9:09 or so. Does everyone who requests get put on the waitlist and receive notification, or was I so late to the request list that I am completely out of luck?

I believe that everyone who didn't get allocated a hotel is notified....?  But then, onPeak is very flaky.

Thank you, Jun.

Still nothing. From what I have seen online, there are quite a number of folks who are not receiving waitlist emails from OnPeak as expected. So frustrating!

It does sound like that. You may want to follow the discussion in this thread.

Thank you to everyone who submitted their results to this poll! I used them to create an analysis of overall lottery results. You can read the analysis here.

Great write up - thank you for sharing!

It also reinforces just how lousy my luck has been with Hotelpocalypse. Entry after 9:09! No email in either Wave 1 or Wave 2! No email for the waitlist!

However, I've had good luck and gotten a room at my first choice (admittedly, not a popular first choice) through other means every year.  :)

This is the advantage with sites like this. When things are randomized, there will be years where you are lucky and years where you are unlucky. However, as a group, those who are lucky can help out those who are unlucky. We're really all just each others' big safety net. ;)

Thanks for all your hard work!!
And I always said that 9:02 (which has been my time in all but 2 lotteries) is cursed! But on the bright side we get a waitlist email (well some do but that's for another day).

Yep, I was writing how everyone got a waitlist email, then realized the mess that went on yesterday, and put in a qualifier... ;)
