Ive done the Omni and the MMM, I agree with You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login exit from the back and it should be quicker for Hall H line from now on especially if the city wont let them use the lawn by the bayfront anymore, but I will always recommend the Omni, I felt when I staying in 2018 that it was closer for thing that weren't just Hall H, not sure if it was but defiantly felt like it lol.

If they aren’t allowed to use the lawn anymore, where are the tents and chutes?

I am not talking about that lawn area with the tents, remember Hall H isn't just a morning line.  To me, the benefit of Bayfront being close to Hall H is not the morning of, it was doing shifts during the two days.  Now that area on the sidewalk right outside the Bayfront is off-limits so they moved it behind the convention center.  It's more in the middle of bayfront and MMM.

Ohhhh, you mean the part of the line when you cross the street between the center and the Bayfront?

The three hotels on the south side of Harbor (the same side as the convention center) are the Marriott Marquis & Marina "MMM", the Hilton Bayfront "HB", and the Manchester Grand Hyatt "MGH". All the other hotels usually get typed out as words. :)

I have stayed at both and enjoyed more the MMM I felt more of that comic con atmosphere and closer to the exhibition hall which I spent a lot of time in, the HBF is a really cool hotel tho and the only place I have encountered some celebs casually walking by.

To expand on me for the big 3:
3 - MMM. Has the best pool! Location is good for Funko Fundays, Video Game stuff, and panel pickups.  Beyond that it always felt like a munch longer walk for me.  Personal run ins there, Will Wheaton at the bar and Cladio Sanchez in the pool.
2 - HBF. Best Views.  Location is great for Hall H & Ballroom, FX area, Stadium events and the convention hall in general.  Probably my favorite room if you have3+ people in your group for size.  Personal run ins there, just Dan Harmon.
1 - Hard Rock.  Best Atmosphere.  Great location for off sites and very easy access to the show floor. Its across the train tracks....but just barely, easy walk everywhere.  Rooms are really small for bigger groups....but they are the nicest quality to me.  Personal run ins there: Walking Dead cast, Suicide Squad cast, Deadpool cast, Jason Mamoa, Ezra Miller, Chadwick Bossman, Harrison Ford.....and so many more.  Bonus points as many big parties are in the hotel and depending on what floor your room is on...you may be able to walk right in to some.

I would think the MGH would be best for Fundays, since the event happens there. Second, would be MMM since it is closer to the MGH.
