Are emails going out then?

ETA   You may want to offer 2 more options:

Other - got 11th choice or worse (or choice not on list)

None - wasn't offered a room

And here's another suggestion...my friend from Wales got our picks in before me and he just got an email telling him we're booked at the Double Tree in Mission Valley. That wasn't on our list!! we didn't have any Mission Valley hotels on the list and we didn't check the "book me somewhere and keep me on a waiting list" option. So how about...I got booked somewhere I didn't even choose. We so confused... :o

I just got emailed at 4:28 PM PDT (Pacific) time that I got my first choice hotel, Hilton San Diego Bayfront! Yeah!

I submitted my 8 choices by 9:03:00 AM 3/29. I have seen on Facebook that others have been having confirmations going out for about an hour before I got mine. Some got their first choices and some didn't. I think that all the reservations are processed but the confirmation emails are not necessarily going out in the order you booked because one person on FB posted that they got their confirmation email even though someone else in their group submitted before them, so I wouldn't freak out if you don't get an email right away and you submitted early.

I read this comment on CCI's wall

Based on twitter and Facebook comments, it seems hotel reservations are going out by hotel and in alphabetical order, not in order submitted.


It sounds pretty true from what I've been reading.

Edit: hehe Alyssa so on top of things  ;D

My girlfriend and I both received our first choice of the Hard Rock. Since we both got the same one I will cancel mine, so there is at least one more slot that I can assure will be opening up for that hotel down the line.

It looks like most people are getting their early choices! That's great!

It's been two hours since this poll went up.... not looking good for me.   :-[

EDIT:  I intentionally only picked 9 hotels as I wanted to submit fast.  I finished at 9:04am, but still no email!

Request went into lottery five minutes after they opened.  Just got my confirmation for a hotel not on my list.  Disappointed to say the least.  I think I would rather have just been added to the wait list (which was what I requested on the lottery form).  Sigh.  So what do I have to do to get put on the wait list?  This is my first Comic Con.  Thanks for any advice anyone can share.
