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.
Since you already mentioned that you wanted to be on the wait list on your hotel request form, you're probably already on the wait list (for whatever option you selected). ^_^;

Don't book/pay for the hotel you got. You'll automatically be on the waitlist, and even if you don't get a hotel that way, you'll be on the email list for notification when hotel room resales go out in May.

Still waiting on my request, but my sister (who submitted by 9:07) just got a confirmation for the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina (3 miles away by the airport).

Not on our list and given that we have a much cheaper hotel booked in Hotel Circle, we probably won't be taking it.

Just go my confirmation for the San Diego Marriott Gaslamp Quarter which was my first choice.  Submitted list of top 8 hotels around 9:03 ish

The difference between in and out at gaslamp Hilton appears to be 1 min or so. I submitted at 9:04 with it as my first and got my second.

@[email protected] Man, that's a small time frame for submissions.  I wonder about the people who submitted their requests after 9:10 am PDT...

People submitted after me got something, but I didn't.   Not cool.

I just got a letter stating I got none of my choices.

Finally got my e-mail.  I was given the Westin Gaslamp, which was my second choice.  It was $40 more than on the preview sheet ($254/night), but that was expected (my wallet is still dying though).  I submitted at 9:03.

I'm just wondering what place people got?

I got the Marriott Marquis and Marina which was my first choice mainly because i ranked hotels in distance and those that did not appear on the bed bug registry recently. Of course the total expense is a fortune and I am like ARRRRRRGGGGGG im going to spend a lot on comic con this year. Normally I stay with my sister in Chula Vista but I miss so much driving back and forth. I don't want to make it back to her late because she has two little girls so i always leave the con at like 5 or 6.
SDCC, WC, SWCA, Comikaze, D23, Paleyfest, E3 hopefully Vidcon soon

I opted to be booked at the nearest, and waitlisted for downtown, and I got absolutely nothing. Not a booking, Not even a confirmation that I got waitlisted.. SHould I call and confirm that I am on the waitlist?

I got my 13th choice out of 18, submitted at 9:06.  Was disappointed at first (Sheraton Suites Symphony), but grateful I at least got something on my list!

Nope.  Was trying to just submit on a tablet (wasn't home at the time) as fast as I could.  I'm inquiring with condos near by now.  For me money isn't the issue (well not that big of an issue).  Being close to the convention is.

It was having four people in the room, instead of two, I think.  And the $254 doesn't include tax  :'(.

I looked on the booking site and the room types/rate are as follows: Single and Double - $214, Twin - $234, Triple - $244, and Quad - $254.  I don't really understand the Double/Twin price difference, since I would think both would involve only two people in the room.

I think they're still sending out e-mails about whether you got a room or not.  My friends, who tried for the hotels, didn't get a room either, but they did get an e-mail stating that there were "no more inventory that met [their] selected criteria."

It seems like it's just the "unfortunately, the rooms are all booked" e-mail for now.
