Can someone point me to the info board that talks about the lottery and how that works for SDCC? I'm a newbie, so I'm still figuring out the navigating part of it
Here is a good guide as well --  https://sdccblog.com/2019/04/visual-guide-to-the-san-diego-comic-con-2019-hotel-sale/

I cannot believe it's been nearly three years now. Remember that time we thought this would be gone by Fall 2020? Oh, only me?  :P

Can anyone please refresh for me - does speed matter when filling out the hotel lottery form? I have memories of trying to frantically type in my name and info as fast as possible, but is it more based on entry time, that once your form loads up it doesn't matter if you submit in 10 seconds vs say 1 minute? Thank you  :)

Here is the quote from that 2019 article, that suggests that time does not matter it is just gaining access to the form at least in 2018. Is that how it was dealt with in 2019/20?

Quote
All reservation requests last year were processed in order of the timestamp that you gained access to the form, with phone reservations being processed in a random order.

I agree with Exhibitors having until the 20th that seems likely.

Twas the nights before Hotelpocalypse,
and all through the forum,
many con-goers were stirring,
but keeping up their decorum.

Yet soon there would be movement,
much communication and planning,
with spreadsheets galore,
and emails being sent like spamming.

Do I have my computer(s) right,
my hotels ranked in their list?
If I don't get the Bayfront,
I'm gonna be pi$$3d!

But we do this every year,
preparing for our trip out west.
And every time we go,
it's always the best!

So let's get this rolling,
pray your internet connection doesn't get the yips.
get your popcorn ready,
and bring on Hotelpocalypse :D

(the above brought to you by 2 hours of sleep and, at the moment, 3 coffees :D)

That kind of makes sense: dealing with WonderCon "cleanup," + Member ID Portal update right now in order to get the Hotel stuff ready for early May.

Also, not to panic anyone, but today, April 23, = 88 days to Preview Night!!

So even though early bird hasn't closed yet, there is strong speculation that the hotel sale is this week?
Title: Re: SDCC 2022 Hotel Discussion
Post by: Michael M on April 24, 2022, 04:28:59 PM
That, I think, is the only thing pointing to it not being this week...I just can't see them having hotelpocalypse *before* early bird closes.  I mean, that's the whole point of early bird. And I do not think that's ever happened before.


Peeps keep me honest here.

I thought so also but a friend of mine said they dug into past dates and it was open at the same time in the past.  Disclaimer I was too lazy to research it.

ITS HAPPENING!

Hello!

It’s almost time to book your Comic-Con 2022 hotel room! Below you will find the link to the waiting room for Comic-Con 2022 Hotel Reservations. The waiting room will open at 8:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) on Thursday, April 28, 2022, and Comic-Con 2022 Hotel Reservations will begin at 9:00 AM PDT.

Important! Downtown hotels are limited and in high demand. We encourage you to read all of the information below to increase your chances of booking your desired hotel.

Waiting Room Link: https://cci.onpeak.info

The Waiting Room

Beginning at 8:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) on Thursday, April 28, you may access the waiting room via the link above. The time you enter the waiting room has no impact on your position in line. At 9:00 AM PDT, all users in the waiting room will be granted access to the form in random order. If you enter the waiting room after 9:00 AM PDT, you will be placed at the end of the line and your chances of getting a room will decrease.

Hotel Selection

To understand how the hotel request process works, please review the details on our Hotels page by visiting www.comic-con.org/cci/hotels. We strongly recommend that you research and make a list of the hotels you have in mind well before the sale. You may select up to six (6) downtown hotels and six (6) non-downtown hotels for a maximum request of 12 different hotels. Only one (1) hotel selection is required to submit the form. The full list of hotels is available on our Hotels page.

Phone Requests

Hotel requests may also be accepted by phone beginning at 9:00 AM PDT on Thursday, April 28, 2022. To submit your request over the phone, please call onPeak at 1-877-55-COMIC (1-877-552-6642) or 1-312-527-7300.

Thank you in advance for your participation in this year’s hotel sale.

Sincerely,
Comic-Con and onPeak

Interesting change to the form this time around: rather than picking our top six downtown hotels (with an option to pick top six non-downtown as well), now we can just pick (up to) our top twelve.

For those that are new if you are staying additional nights it is typically cheaper to book those separately outside of the lottery. Hopefully that stays true as I've been doing that for Tue and Sun nights the last few cons and saved me some $$$

I believe so. Basically, if you make a deposit, they take a 3% non-refundable fee.

Does anyone remember how to check the time you got access to the form? I remember it involved having to do something with checking the source code. I'm trying to make a guide for my hotel buying group lol.

Also, are people doing the full 12 hotel list or only sticking with 6?

The email may not go out, but the junior can certainly participate. However, it takes an adult to book a room/pay the deposit.

I actually got through on my phone's browser in 2019. It's been a while, so I can't say this with 100% certainty, but I'm pretty sure I remember the page keeping the phone "active" so to speak, so the screen never actually blacked out. If you're planning on using your phone this year, I'd keep an eye on it though, just in case. Bc the waiting room could definitely time out if your screen blacks out.

Is this the shortest turnaround between announcement and actual sale? Less than 48 hours. I seem to recall past years we got maybe a week, or at least 4-5 days heads up.

Comic-Con 2022 Hotel Reservations Are Coming!

https://www.comic-con.org/toucan/comic-con-2022-hotel-reservations-are-coming
Quote

Hotel reservations for Comic-Con 2022 will open on Thursday, April 28, 2022, at 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT). The waiting room will open at 8:00 AM PDT, but there’s no need to rush! At 9:00 AM PDT, everyone in the waiting room will begin to be randomly filtered to the hotel reservation request form. However, anyone who enters the waiting room after 9:00 AM PDT will be placed at the end of the line. We encourage you to visit our Hotels page and read everything—including the fine print—to get ready in advance of the sale.

All Comic-Con 2022 badge holders were sent an email with information on how to access the onPeak waiting room and the hotel reservation request form. If you have a Comic-Con 2022 badge and did not receive the email, you may not be opted in to receive marketing emails in your Comic-Con Member ID account.

To ensure you receive important emails from Comic-Con, please log in to your Member ID account and click “My Account Information”. Select “Yes” from the dropdown for “Do you want to receive marketing emails?” On the same page, there are three additional opt-in preferences you can customize.

To confirm you have a badge for Comic-Con 2022, log in to your Member ID account and check under “My Orders”. If you have badges to attend Comic-Con 2022 but did not receive the hotel sale announcement email, please contact us.

Comic-Con 2022 Hotel Reservations Open Thursday, April 28, 2022 — 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)

Each year hotel rooms for Comic-Con sell out in a matter of minutes. We want to make the process as clear—and more importantly—as fair as it can be. Below is a guide to the process for opening day.

Comic-Con International
 
Click here to download the Comic-Con 2022 Hotel List

The PDF above includes a complete list of all the hotels in the 2022 block. Please review this information before reservations open on Thursday, April 28, 2022.

 

The Email (Tuesday, April 26, 2022)

On Tuesday, April 26, 2022, an email will be sent from Comic-Con to Comic-Con 2022 badge holders, which will include the link to the waiting room/hotel reservation request form. The form will not open until 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) on Thursday, April 28, 2022. Opening the link prior to opening day will only take you to a page indicating you are in the right place and to check back when the form opens.

The link will only grant you access to the waiting room one hour prior to the opening.

The Waiting Room (Thursday, April 28, 2022, | 8:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT))

Beginning at 8:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT), you may access the waiting room via the link in your email. The time you enter the waiting room prior to 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) has no impact on your position in line. At 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT), all users in the waiting room will be granted access to the form in random order. If you enter the waiting room after 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT), you will be placed at the end of the line.

From within the waiting room, you will have an opportunity to view a sample version of the form to review hotel options, rates, and form instructions. You will also have access to a browser check form, which allows you to perform a simple check for any browser issues that may impact the performance of the form. Both resources have also been made available for you on this page (below).

Placing Your Requests (Thursday, April 28, 2022 | 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT))

The hotel request form officially opens on Thursday, April 28, 2022, at 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT). On this date, you will need to submit your request via the online form or over the phone. Once the maximum number of requests have been received, the form will shut down and callers will no longer be able to submit a request.

Online Submissions

At 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT), everyone in the waiting room will be assigned a random place in line. Guests will then be moved from the waiting room to the request form based on this order. Randomization will not take place until 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) and is not based on the time at which you enter the waiting room before that point. No further randomization will take place throughout the process. Anyone accessing the link after 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) will be placed at the end of the line. Forms will be processed based on the time at which a user was granted access to the form — NOT the time at which the form was submitted.

Sample Form

To allow attendees to prepare for opening day, we are providing a sample version of the form for review. The form remains similar to previous years, but some processing options have been updated and the hotel list has been updated to reflect 2022 availability.

The sample form is available for review here: https://cci.onpeak.info/sample

In addition to reviewing the options available on this year's form, attendees are encouraged to verify that their browser settings are configured for best performance of the form ahead of opening day. Use the following link to verify that JavaScript and cookies are enabled on your browser: https://cci.onpeak.info/browserCheck.

Note: You will be given the option to select up to 12 different hotels. Only one (1) hotel selection is required to submit the form.

Request Online

To submit your request online, click on the link in your email or copy and paste the URL to your browser.

Request by Phone

To submit your request over the phone, please call 1-877-55-COMIC (1-877-552-6642) or 312-527-7300.
*Calls will not be accepted prior to this date and time.

Hotel Placements

Confirmations of hotel placements will be sent out in two groups. The first will be sent on Tuesday, May 3, 2022, and the second on Tuesday, May 10, 2022. Those whose request cannot be accommodated and therefore cannot be placed will be notified no later than Tuesday, May 17, 2022.

If you have been placed at a hotel, you will have 72 hours from the date and time the email is sent to confirm your reservation with a deposit. If you do not confirm within 72 hours, your reservation will be cancelled.

Once confirmations are sent, you will be required to provide a deposit equal to two (2) nights' room rate plus tax.

For reservations confirmed on Tuesday, May 3, 2022, the required deposit must be provided by Friday, May 6, 2022, at 9:59 PM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)/11:59 PM Central Daylight Time (CDT).
For reservations confirmed on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, the required deposit must be provided by Friday, May 13, 2022, at 9:59 PM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)/11:59 PM Central Daylight Time (CDT)
Reservations without a deposit will be cancelled and cannot be reinstated for any reason.

In order to defray the costs of credit card processing, a non-refundable service fee equal to 3% of each hotel deposit will be charged to the credit card provided for each reservation. Any change to a reservation that increases the required hotel deposit amount, such as extending the length of stay, changing to a more expensive room type, changing hotels, etc.; will incur an additional non-refundable service fee in the amount of 3% of the additional deposit amount. All charges will appear as "Comic-Con 2022 Hotels" on the user's credit card statement.

A Few FAQ's

As everyone knows from past experience, Comic-Con hotel rooms sell out very quickly. We work hard to create a process that is easy and fair for as many people as possible. That said, there are a LOT of details. Please take a moment to read through the fine print.

Who is onPeak?

Comic-Con has contracted with onPeak to provide hotel accommodations.

How does the randomization process work?

To ensure fairness in the request and placement process, Comic-Con uses a randomization process for granting users access to the form. Beginning at 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) on Thursday, April 28, 2022, all users within the online waiting room will be assigned a random place in line. Guests will then be moved from the waiting room to the request form based on this order. The order in which requests are processed will be based on the time a guest was granted access to the form. No further randomization will take place throughout the process.

Is there anything special this year that I should be aware of?

In order to defray the costs of credit card processing, a non-refundable service fee equal to 3% of each hotel deposit will be charged to the credit card provided for each reservation. Any change to a reservation that increases the required hotel deposit amount, such as extending the length of stay, changing to a more expensive room type, changing hotels, etc.; will incur an additional non-refundable service fee in the amount of 3% of the additional deposit amount. All charges will appear as "Comic-Con 2022 Hotels" on the user's credit card statement.

The 2022 request form is the same as it was in 2019 and no changes have been made. We encourage all guests to review the 2022 sample form prior to opening day to familiarize themselves with the options this year.

The sample form is available here: https://cci.onpeak.info/sample.

When will I find out if I've been placed at a hotel?

Confirmations of hotel placements will be sent out in two groups. The first will be sent on Tuesday, May 3, 2022, and the second on Tuesday, May 10, 2022. Those who cannot be placed will be notified no later than May 17, 2022.

Once confirmations are sent, you will be required to provide a deposit equal to two (2) nights' room rate plus tax.

For reservations confirmed on Tuesday, May 3, 2022, the required deposit must be provided by Friday, May 6, 2022, at 9:59 PM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)/11:59 PM Central Daylight Time (CDT).
For reservations confirmed on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, the required deposit must be provided by Friday, May 13, 2022, at 9:59 PM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)/11:59 PM Central Daylight Time (CDT).
Reservations without deposit will be cancelled and will not be reinstated for any reason.

What if I don't like where I've been placed?

If you receive a confirmation email and are not happy with your hotel, you have three options. You can decline your hotel assignment directly from your confirmation email, you can notify onPeak of your intention to cancel your reservation(s), or you can simply opt to take no action. If you do not provide your deposit by the required deadline, your reservation will automatically cancel. If you would prefer to contact onPeak to cancel, you may do so by calling 1-877-55-COMIC (1-877-552-6642) or 312-527-7300 and referencing the onPeak ID number included in your confirmation email.


Policy Information

Hotel Deposit & Payment Policy

A deposit equal to two (2) nights' room rate plus tax must be provided in order to confirm your reservation.

For reservations confirmed on Tuesday, May 3, 2022, the required deposit must be provided by Friday, May 6, 2022, at 9:59 PM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)/11:59 PM Central Daylight Time (CDT).
For reservations confirmed on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, the required deposit must be provided by Friday, May 13, 2022, at 9:59 PM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)/11:59 PM Central Daylight Time (CDT).
Reservations without deposit will be cancelled and will not be reinstated for any reason.

In order to defray the costs of credit card processing, a non-refundable service fee equal to 3% of each hotel deposit will be charged to the credit card provided for each reservation. Any change to a reservation that increases the required hotel deposit amount, such as extending the length of stay, changing to a more expensive room type, changing hotels, etc.; will incur an additional non-refundable service fee in the amount of 3% of the additional deposit amount. All charges will appear as "Comic-Con 2022 Hotels" on the user's credit card statement.

Full payment will be due for your hotel reservation(s) at the time of check-out. Each hotel’s payment policies vary; the date that your total balance is due will be dependent upon the policies of your hotel. All hotels place a deposit on your credit card or debit card when you check in and charge the balance at check-out. Please refer to your confirmation for specific hotel policies.

Changes Policy

Changes can be made by accessing your reservation online. Access your reservation via the link in your onPeak confirmation or by visiting http://www.comic-con.org/cci/hotels and click on the "Make Your Hotel Reservations" button to reach the login screen. Changes can also be made by phone at 1-877-55-COMIC (1-877-552-6642) or 312-527-7300. Changes are on a request basis and are subject to the availability/discretion of the hotel.

Cancellation Policy

Reservations may be cancelled on or before Tuesday, May 31, 2022, by 11:59pm Central Daylight Time (CDT)/9:59pm Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) to receive a refund of the two-night room and tax deposit minus the non-refundable service fee.
Reservations cancelled on or after Wednesday, June 1, 2022, ALL DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.

Fine Print Reminders

Hotel rates include a $10.00 per night reimbursement to Comic-Con to help defray shuttle and convention costs (this charge is subject to change). San Diego city blocks are small compared to other cities and take approximately 2-3 minutes to walk. You may find walking in the morning is a great way to explore San Diego and find new places for dinner, lunch, or shopping.
Reservations are booked based on room availability. Bed type and special requests are not guaranteed. All special requests will be noted with the hotel, but are subject to hotel availability at the time of check-in.
Hotels in San Diego charge a Transient Occupancy tax of 10.565%, a Tourism Marketing assessment of 2%, and parking fees, all of which are subject to change without notice. Hotel rates are not guaranteed until booked and confirmed. Hotel rates may vary by number of occupants and other requested services. Comic-Con and onPeak reserve the right to correct any identified errors.
Responsibility and liability: Comic-Con and/or its agents act only in the capacity as agents for customers in all matters pertaining to hotel accommodations and transportation whether by railroad, automobile, airplane, or any other means, and as such are not responsible for any damage, expense, or inconvenience caused by train or plane arrivals or departures, or by any change of schedule or condition from any loss, injury, or damage to any person or property from any cause whatsoever.

I remember in the past, if there was any sign that your form was a duplicate, they'd throw it out and remember some people saying that having the same roommate names, and/or the same address would be a giveaway as a duplicate entry even if you're using different Member IDs. Does anyone have any information on this?

Just got the hotel email.

Is this the shortest turnaround between announcement and actual sale? Less than 48 hours. I seem to recall past years we got maybe a week, or at least 4-5 days heads up.
It was two days in 2019 too (4/9 and 4/11). Before that I believe we had a bit more warning.

So I don't recall there was any solid evidence, just a lot of anecdotal evidence this occurred.

What I usually do is I use completely different names for roommates (I've never had a hotel check IDs of the other people listed), and I use different addresses. It's usually me and my sister going, so one form I'll use my name and a random friend's name. For the second form, I'll use my sister and another random friend's name.

Ah ok. Would you also put your hotel choices in a different order/add in other ones or would you keep that the same on both forms?

Yup. Mainly because whatever browser window gets in second is usually quite a bit of time after the lottery starts, which means it’s highly unlikely the hotels I put on the first form (all within a few blocks of the convention center) would still be available by the time OnPeak gets to my form. So I put down other downtown hotels that are still walking distance but further out.

But in the unlikely event I’m extremely lucky and get two browsers in within the first minute, I’ll still put down mostly different hotels, and any of the same hotels will be in a different order.

I'm actually preparing to go into the office on Thursday and put on a do not disturb notice on my computer so that I can have the fastest and most reliable high-speed internet and request my hotels. My home service can drop without a warning and I can't let that happen on  Thursday morning.

Is anyone else bummed out that there are so few hotels offering breakfast? At these prices, it should come automatically included in the price.

Hello! Hard to believe that we're finally back for the first time since 2019!

I'm not sure if I am posting this question in the right thread, but I could swear that there were some sort of issues for folks in the past depending on which button is selected on the form under "If none of my preferred hotel choices are available..." and/or "Waitlist Preferences".

Does anyone remember something like this? Like it affected whether you were kicked out of the system or something? Or maybe placed in a hotel you really didn't want and then kicked out when not taking it? Ugh. I really don't remember exactly.

What does the Waitlist actually do for you?

I've never had luck in the initial lottery, but have always gotten my hotel of choice when reservations are returned by keeping an eye on availability.

Thank you!

To have breakfast included is always a nice bonus but getting up early for queuing does not always make it possible. I wish there were more grab bags when they did provide breakfast.

I could not be more excited and more terrified. Whatever happens with Hotelpocalypse, I just really hope Comic Con returns to its former glory and the fervor, media participation, and excitement hasn't dropped off too much. I know the hotel sale link isn't unique and I can find it anywhere but I still haven't received the hotel sale email which is concerning. Anyway, it's SO good t be back!

The practice form lets you choose Sunday July 17th as the earliest arrival date and Tuesday July 26th as the latest departure date, so you should be good to book with Wednesday included, but I have heard that sometimes it's cheaper to book outside the OnPeak system and merge later.  For Wednesday I would probably just book with OnPeak, but if you're going earlier/staying later it might be worth comparing since it might not be peak pricing.

People on the waitlist receive direct emails with unique links to access (and book) available hotels BEFORE those rooms are made available to the public. At least, that's how it has been in the past.

I have seen a few people on these forums who did not get the email, but they do not have a confirmed badge (i.s. press or pros).

One of my friends thought they didn't get it, but then realized that the mail associated with their Member ID was an account they no longer used. They had to go check that account to find it.

I also did not get the email.  All the permissions are set in my account to allow for emails.  I have been getting the other emails.

As per the announcement, they are only sending it out to people with confirmed badges.  In the past, that also included volunteers.  I am only a volunteer.  But things are backwards this year.  Normally, volunteer registration happens before this.  This year, it's happening after.  So right now, there aren't any registered volunteers.  So volunteers aren't anything and didn't get this email.  That's how I'm rationalizing it.  Of course, it could be that I didn't get the email for other reasons.  Did any volunteers, only volunteers and not badge holders otherwise, get this email?

For me in the past I have tried to book Tuesday-Tuesday through CCI Onpeak system as I usually have great success in getting my top 3 choices since 2012. Depending on how fast I get in tomorrow I might switch it up and only do Wed-Sun. For my Tuesday-Tuesday request in the past the price point is always around the CCI rate and that is why I haven chosen to go that route. I would rather have 1 reservation that numerous ones.

You don’t need a password. If it’s the same as last time, if you are assigned a room the email from OnPeak will contain a link to your reservation and you would create a password at that time. The password you create will be linked to the reservation, not an OnPeak account, and it would not carry over to next year.

Someone on reddit made a Google map with all of the SDCC hotels on it and grouped them the way SDCC does.

Map (https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=1pBF4v8Cb6JX7nh45o9l2ilS1TIIPpZUN&ll=32.71227282507991%2C-117.16192124911156&z=15)

Thanks for the map. Really helps with the visual on how far the distance really is for some of the hotels. Good luck!

This is mainly a note to self: When selecting Room Type, choose TWIN (2 people / 2 bed), not DOUBLE (2 people / 1 bed).

At least twice in the past 5-6 years, in my rush to fill out the form, I accidentally selected "DOUBLE", thinking that meant two beds. One of those years, I couldn't get my reservation changed, so I ended up sleeping on a pullout mattress that the staff brought in.

So yeah, TWIN TWIN TWIN.

Is filling the form out fast important?  Is the order reservations are processed based off of time stamp when you are granted access to the form, not the time when you submit the form?  I know there is a time limit to fill it out, but there’s no need to try to set a speed record filling it out, right?

It depends on the hotel. If the hotel catches you, they can charge you the higher rate, or they can add an unknown fee for the additional roommate, or if they really want to they can cancel your reservation and kick you out. People definitely do it, but it is very much at your own risk, and you should be prepared for possible consequences.

I just checked with everyone in my family. 
Out of the 4 of us, both my son and I got the badge order receipts and hotel emails, my sister only got the hotel email, and my wife got none of the emails.
So something is a little screwy with what CCI is doing.
And just got another badge email 10 minutes ago!

Yikes! There may be folk who miss this hotel sale if they are not watching here and other places almost daily.

This almost was going to happen to me. I've received THREE badge confirmation email but ZERO hotel emails. The only reason I even knew about it was because my cousin called me and essentially said "Hotels are happening! Are you freaking out?" I was very confused. Still have not received a hotel email.

The hotel may notice if you ask for two keycards for your room. It's usually $10-20 a night extra for occupancy tax, the rate difference in the sample form is for 2 people/2 beds which would put you in a different room type.

ITS HAPPENING!

Hello!

It’s almost time to book your Comic-Con 2022 hotel room! Below you will find the link to the waiting room for Comic-Con 2022 Hotel Reservations. The waiting room will open at 8:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) on Thursday, April 28, 2022, and Comic-Con 2022 Hotel Reservations will begin at 9:00 AM PDT.

Important! Downtown hotels are limited and in high demand. We encourage you to read all of the information below to increase your chances of booking your desired hotel.

Waiting Room Link: https://cci.onpeak.info

The Waiting Room

Beginning at 8:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) on Thursday, April 28, you may access the waiting room via the link above. The time you enter the waiting room has no impact on your position in line. At 9:00 AM PDT, all users in the waiting room will be granted access to the form in random order. If you enter the waiting room after 9:00 AM PDT, you will be placed at the end of the line and your chances of getting a room will decrease.

Hotel Selection

To understand how the hotel request process works, please review the details on our Hotels page by visiting www.comic-con.org/cci/hotels. We strongly recommend that you research and make a list of the hotels you have in mind well before the sale. You may select up to six (6) downtown hotels and six (6) non-downtown hotels for a maximum request of 12 different hotels. Only one (1) hotel selection is required to submit the form. The full list of hotels is available on our Hotels page.

Phone Requests

Hotel requests may also be accepted by phone beginning at 9:00 AM PDT on Thursday, April 28, 2022. To submit your request over the phone, please call onPeak at 1-877-55-COMIC (1-877-552-6642) or 1-312-527-7300.

Thank you in advance for your participation in this year’s hotel sale.

Sincerely,
Comic-Con and onPeak

Bumping for those who didn't get the email:


"The waiting room will open at 8:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)"

"At 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT), all users in the waiting room will be granted access to the form in random order."

"The hotel request form officially opens on Thursday, April 28, 2022, at 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)"

"Anyone accessing the link after 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) will be placed at the end of the line."

"Forms will be processed based on the time at which a user was granted access to the form — NOT the time at which the form was submitted."

Yeah, but even chosing a room for 2 people does not guarantee 2 beds and with already a really tight budget this year, got me thinking if I should risk it with my bud paying for 1 bed 1 person...

Waiting room open

Welcome to the waiting room for Comic-Con 2022 Hotel Reservations!

The Comic-Con Official Hotel Request Form is scheduled to open on Thursday, April 28, 2022, at 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT). No reservation requests will be accepted now. Please check back on April 28, 2022.

When the Comic-Con 2022 Official Hotel Request Form opens, everyone in the waiting room will be given access to the request form in random order in an effort to ensure fairness of the request and placement process. Guests will then be moved from the waiting room to the Comic-Con 2022 Official Hotel Request Form based on this randomized order. If you enter the waiting room after 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time PDT, you will be placed at the end of the line.

You may enter this waiting room on April 28 prior to 9:00 AM (PDT), but the randomization process will not begin until 9:00 AM (PDT) on April 28, 2022. Early arrival to the waiting room does not guarantee hotel selection. This randomization process will determine the order in which you have access to the form. All successfully submitted forms will then be processed based on the time at which a user was granted access to the form — NOT the time at which the form was submitted.

A sample version of the Official Hotel Request Form is available here.

To ensure best performance of the waiting room and hotel request form, you must have JavaScript and cookies enabled in your browser. IE 10 and below are not supported. Click here to verify you meet these requirements.

Sincerely,
The Comic-Con Housing Team at onPeak

If I remember correctly one year someone made a spreadsheet to try to analyze when everyone got in and just rooms they ended up with but I don't remember how we found the timestamp. I may try to dig through forum threads, I think it was 2019.

IIRC, someone figured out how to find the exact second you logged in a couple of years ago via browser logs...or something.

anyone remember how?

I don't know if it's right, but my browser history shows 2 timestamps for SDCC. I'm thinking one is the time I hit the button to enter, and the other is the time I hit the button to submit. 9:00 and 9:05.

I got in right away on my iPad, but after I filled everything out and hit 'submit', it took me back to "it is your turn". I'm thinking my timestamp is not going to be great. I wound up getting in on another device about a minute later, so I made selections using my Con roommate's name and email with that. I'll be happy if either of us gets a room at all... (and if we both get one, we'll take the best and the other goes back in the pool...)

Yea, there was a google doc form to enter what time you were given access, how long it took to submit (all details of if you seleted waitlist etc), and what hotel you received. So maybe it's better to wait until after the hotels go out.

Got in late 9:07, too.but first browser got in first. Only submitted one form 9:11

FWIW

Print button on Confirmation screen! Save as pdf.

Error on later browser, waiting it to time out:

I think it would be easier to get rid of a day than add one, system wise.  If it's before the convention, like before they send everything to the hotels then try calling OnPeak to get it amended, if its close to the convention then call the hotel to modify it.

Did anyone else notice that once the sale went live, it took a while for the walking man to update with your actual position in line? I noticed that right went 9am hit, all of my walking man progress bars were at the beginning but after 10 seconds or so they all automatically updated to varying positions.

Had three computers with three browsers each running a session, plus my phone. So 10 total sessions. Got in with my phone session first around 9:05 which... is not great. Especially since all the hotels I listed are the most popular hotels for the con. Kind of a pain in the butt filling out the form on my phone too.\

When can I post in the hotel request thread!? Ha Ha!

Out of three devices, I had two--my iPad and one of my laptops--get in at nearly identical times around 7 minutes.  While the iPad was less than a second faster, I chose to use the laptop because of the keyboard convenience.  I remember the one year my iPad got in fast and it was clunky to submit the form.

I'm assuming there will be no downtown hotel for me.  It's been a long time since I had such luck.

Fortunately, I was tipped off weeks ago that the Horton Grand had rooms.  I got one.  It's pretty expensive, but I'll use it given I'm probably not getting anything downtown in the lottery.

The Horton Grand is no longer on the official hotel list.

That was so nice! Finally, a confirmation page ~

I had 3 browsers going and Firefox for me got in the quickest at 9:02... I think Chrome was next but I only did the one form so only had the one actual time stamp check (my group also applied, so that was enough to try with, me thinks)

Hotel rooms for Comic-Con 2022 are fully committed at this time. However, as Comic-Con gets closer, hotel rooms do free up! We urge everyone who still needs a hotel reservation to check www.comic-con.org/cci/hotels regularly for updated room availability. If you haven't been able to secure a room yet, check back later to see if rooms have become available

There is a thread under the 2017 Hotel discussion on timestamps. Trying to find the link. They did write ups in past based in access times and whether or not folks got their hotel choices.

If you're using the Chrome browser, there is a tool from nirsoft called chromecacheview that will show you the full browser cache.
For the entry timestamp, you're looking for a cache entry with a URL that starts with https://cci.onpeak.info/addRequest?q=.
For the submission timestamp, you're looking for a cache entry with the URL https://cci.onpeak.info/thanks.

Hope that helps.

Well, no one is complaining about waiting 20 minutes to get in.

FWIW, I filled in the first form with my list exactly how I want it. I filled in the second form willy nilly just hoping to get anything. If I don't get hotels from the first form, no way would I get those hotels in my second form. The second form is for my backup hotel.

It's the same link every year.  Which makes it baffling why SDCC tries to be so hush hush about it.  Especially since the link is easy found online.  Including, in a way, on the housing page at comic-con.org.  The waiting room link is the base URL for the sample form and the browser check.

So reading here and on Reddit, it seems duplicates are based on


Now the only question is, are there additional fields that OnPeak looks at, like home address and the same names on the forms (even if in different order). I don't know if anyone outside of OnPeak knows for certain.

Sorry long day but I was in it with you this morning!   I was lucky and got in fast, I hope I broke my curse of 2019! 

I agree it seemed to be soooo fast for everyone.  I don't know what to read of that, did they let more in at once? Did people not realize it was happening?  Did that many refund their badges? 

As usual, I am in a sea of unknowns.

So wait, you guys have multiple windows open, even tho you have 1 or 2 accounts that can submit one form? So next year, I can have like 10 windows open and just submit the first one that gets in first?
Also, since the link appears to be the same, is there anyone without a badge that still submitted a hotel form? Or do they verify that you're a current attendee before giving out rooms?

It is a duplicate if certain information is used during submission. OnPeak said that duplicate submissions were based on three factors: phone number, e-mail address, or a unique identifier associated with the user’s queue/waiting room session (likely the QueueID at the bottom of the waiting room).

Multiple browsers, not windows of the same browser. And no, they do not verify that you have a badge.

Yes run multiple and just use first one. Yes can get room without a badge like volunteers. No they don't confirm member id

Multiple browsers + multiple devices. I had a desktop, my work laptop, two other laptops and an iPad. You've got 15 minutes to put in information, so you don't have to rush if you get access in more than one browser.

I too am concerned on how many people got in right away but they increased the amount of hotels you can select at one time.  I'm assuming they also increased the amount of people allowed into the lottery.

It seems to me that a lot of people didn't know about the lottery.  I also have a friend who opted out because she had something else to do.  The increase to 12 hotels is an intriguing element.  In the past, if you were an early person and selected "closest to the convention" you should have gotten any of the hotels you might have selected 7-12 without having to name them.

As for people admitted later, I'm not sure what advantage it had.

I got notified of a duplicate waaaaaaaay back in 2010. I'm 90% certain the only thing that matched was the full name.

I tried to get all the names different, but I think I messed up and put my husband's name on two forms. He was a guest on one form. Do you think that would be a match?

It could be, but I wouldn't worry about it too much yet. Some years they just notify you that they have a duplicate name... and some years they don't even flag it. Whatever it is, we'll find out Tuesday.
Title: Re: SDCC 2022 Hotel Discussion
Post by: Iris on April 28, 2022, 09:52:57 PM
I'm trying to remember what year it happened, and I don't have access to that email anymore to verify either. Either way, it was either one or two years before Travel Planners became OnPeak or vaguely possibly the year of the merge. Either way, my group of friends got a duplicate reservation flag (as in after the deposits were made) on one of our reservations, we had a large group and reservations were made split for probably multiple stupid reasons, for duplicate occupant names. Now, back then you could easily go in and change occupant names online with no issues and we did get like 24-48 hours or something to make the change before they would void the entire reservation.

But honestly, it's so uncertain beyond some very obvious things (unique names, same session, etc.) what will actually cause them to flag something as a duplicate. I would hope that the name name being in different positions in the submission (reservation holder vs. occupant/guest) wouldn't be an issue.

Unfortunately, I think there was also a year in which you got no notification if you were flagged as a duplicate even if you were and they just automatically trashed it. I don't recall it being a widespread issue though...

I guess I am a little confused about why everyone is so concerned about duplications.  I do see people doing multiple forms, is that it?  You get in, fill out the form, why fill out later forms?  They sort by when you got in. At that point, it seems we are taking from others trying.

I do understand why people try on their multiple laptops, tablets, and phones.  It's a lotto and we all have too many electronics.

I also get people are at different locations when filling out for the room, but everyone should have their own phone number nowadays and then just use family names for the room of people you know who are not going.  If everyone is just doing one form for themselves this should be easy.  I think we all have a family member not going for an address.  Or maybe a few coworkers?

Is it just that people have gotten nothing in the past and are paranoid?

I was unable to try for a hotel since I didn’t receive link. I don’t have a badge, so didn’t get it.
Today I was notified of my chance to register possibly for volunteering. So now I may have a badge but no room.
Can I reach out to anyone who may get an extra room in downtown area?

Personally, while not super concerned with duplicate submissions, I have had a submission vanish into what I think was the duplicate void in the past (most of my group was busy/unable to help, I ran multiple sessions, submitted two requests that I thought had no duplicate info, and, in the end, only got a room confirmation for my second, slower request) (Naturally, it was not a downtown room).

I don't know if this was due to duplicate info or simply my request getting lost, but ever since, I have been super cautious about doing everything I can to minimize the chances of having that sort of thing happen again. In fact, this year I actually typed cheat sheets for myself and my sister prior to the sale, each with different addresses, phone numbers, and room occupants, to ensure that, aside from our hotel lists, our requests did not overlap in any other way.
Title: Re: SDCC 2022 Hotel Discussion
Post by: accelerate on April 28, 2022, 11:02:42 PM
@NCDS. For me it’s the paranoia and having a backup in case something goes wrong. At least once in the past, not only did I not get a hotel, I wasn’t even notified that i didn’t get one, which led me to believe my submission got lost in transit. Another reason: putting down the wrong info. Like the wrong dates or wrong room size (both of which I’ve done).

Side story: before Travel Planners became OnPeak, the hotel form date picker was a calendar instead of a drop down menu. And the dates I had selected one time were the week before. So imagine the elation of getting the Marriott Marquis, only to realize it was for seven days too early.

My third reason is that I usually have lots of other friends going, and inevitably one group of them strikes out, so I tend to give away my extra reservation, if I happen to get one.

I do agree however, in a perfect world, everyone would submit just one entry.

That's why we do multiple forms, one time the person with the last time stamp was the one to get a hotel (not something we picked, but at least something) and the person with the quickest got nothing.  It's just to cover a few bases and stuff and then you release or offer up extras that you can to help out.

There is a hotel exchange section with information about the whole process in this subsection ~ something to check out :)  If you don't meet the requirements there are still opportunities to get a hotel through CCI/OnPeak especially after the last deadline for deposit refunds.  Keep an eye out on the hotels page and the link they provide, I think following the last email batch that goes out to people who participated in the lotto, they will have a link to the available hotels.  And sometimes downtown hotels are released back into the pool (I've gotten the Intercontinental and even the MMM through this).
Title: Re: SDCC 2022 Hotel Discussion
Post by: NCDS on April 29, 2022, 08:53:05 AM
Okay, Paranoia I can understand and appreciate all the responses. 

I know there are times we can't communicate with the other person trying the lotto.  I know someone that took an emergency bathroom break once to do a form.  Clearly, they were not going to be able to tell anyone they were in.  Other people sneak it in on a meeting, break, and such so then you need different information.  On peak wants a lottery announced 2 days before and during the workweek, so they can't expect people not to get creative to get a form in.  They essentially make it every man for themselves and work it out when the results come.

My roommate and I live in different states, so duplicating is never a worry, but we are at work and sometimes don't get to catch up until the end of the day.

We filled out two forms just because we were in two different places and it's hard to coordinate knowing who actually got in first or not.  Previously we've tried to all be on a call or in the same room so we could just go with whoever got in first, but with the short notice we weren't able to move work meetings and arrange it this time.

Post by: rabbitwarren on April 29, 2022, 09:30:08 AM
For me, it's so we (a group of 2) can try for 2 beds instead of a king.  The first form goes for a king and if the second one gets in at a good time, we try for 2 beds. 

One time, we got absolutely burned even though we got in within the first 2 minutes so our priority is getting downtown and then getting a good room.

You can normally do a daily refresh of the hotel list after the second round goes out. Prime downtown hotels end up popping up once a day or so that you can get if youre quick.

I got in almost immediately with one of the forms. That one got me my first choice, which wasn't most other people's first choice (MGH). The second form got in quite a bit later. I believe it was probably around 9:07. I haven't heard back on that one.

I will say, my friend did two of our forms for the group. She got in first for us and no email yet. She got in with our 2nd person afterwards, and THAT is the person who got the hotel email.

I was able to get MGH last time through the kindness of an FoCC member. The hotels also popped up all the time, like everyone said. After I realized that, I was no longer afraid of going hotel-less during the con.

You can normally do a daily refresh of the hotel list after the second round goes out. Prime downtown hotels end up popping up once a day or so that you can get if youre quick.

Got MMM this way a few years ago too!

It's really crappy that it appears I have to wait for Round 2, again, for my hotel placement. Those lucky to get in within the first 3 minutes appear to be the ones who got their assignment this week. Now the rest of us have to keep our fingers crossed that we get lucky next week, and I didn't even ask for the top hotels. This all just makes me sick, it's not a fair process especially considering that I was Round 2 last time, and I'll be in Round 2 for next week.

Thank you. But it's so much time wasted, as you demonstrated the effort of 20 minutes of your time absolutely wasted in not getting a hotel through this system. I know what you mean, and I know good downtown hotels come up weeks before the event, but for peace of mind, I just wish this wasn't broken up in two rounds. It's unnecessarily stressful, it's not an efficient prcoess.

Does anyone have the link to the hotel list? I would like to keep checking. I kind of want to see if Hard Rock ever pops up even for one night. I like to go in and out of that hotel during the con and you only get to do it if you have a key. Last time, someone let me buy their key when they were done with it and I was able to hang in the lobby when I wanted.

I don't have the link, but it won't be active until after the second round deposit deadline expires anyway. Nothing will "pop up" until all the official requests are confirmed/denied.

That’s a tough one. You can always ask but it’s pretty unlikely as they are also allocating the two-bed rooms now. I have tried it at Omni and they said no.

When you have a king bed room you’re normally allowed a rollaway, so while not ideal you can sleep at least 3 people.

It's considered the airport region.  You will need to take the shuttle.  I stayed there one night like 10 years ago, when I needed a last minute hotel room.  I got it from priceline or one of those hotel websites with last minute deals.  Anyways, it was a perfectly fine hotel with a very good view.  But you had to take the shuttle and it took about 30 minutes to get to the convention center on the shuttle.  A bit far away from the action, but better than Mission Valley IMO.

I stayed at Solamar one year.  I did not like it because they had us next to an adjoining room and we could hear our neighbors and their TV loud and clear.  The actual hotel was nice and it's not too bad of a walk, but the noise was a problem.  Thin walls.  Other rooms may not be as bad, and we may have just been unlucky.

You can try checking the hotel review thread, as that's been an SDCC hotel for ages, and see if anyone's reviewed it on here. That's on the island bar thing behind/by the airport, which would be about ~3mi walk by foot. You'll want to take the shuttle.

Looks like I didn't meet requirements for the hotel exchange this year (made my profile in 2019), is there another thread to help with hotel exchanges? Was hoping to get a downtown hotel considering I will have an 8 month old with me at the time of SDCC. Thanks all!

I would just post in the discord. Could be people with extras don't meet the requirements and they have to post them somewhere. Hopefully they look at the discord before going to other groups.

Twitter is also a good place to scour. You're going to have to search different tags/keywords. Also, keep checking the onpeak link once it goes live again. I received downtown hotels twice that way in May and June by checking it several times a day, every day.

I have only ever once gotten lucky during Hotelpocalypse. I am beginning to think I am cursed... I had a glimmer of hope this year when I made it in by 9:05am but OnPeak kicked me in the nards again this year.

Congrats to those that got in early!

I once missed the hotel sale for whatever reason. By sheer luck, I was able to score Omni. I called the national line and they said they had one room. I was so newbie, I hung up and called the hotel directly later not realizing I should snatch that up. They said no rooms. I called the national line back and booked the room (it was still available). The price was not bad at all. That method doesn't work anymore.

Someone on twitter pointed out the mistake. Looks like a typo for sure. Definitely do not wait until May 13th to make the deposit! If you like the hotel you made put in the deposit before the May 6th deadline. Good luck

My parents were able to use their timeshare with marriott to get me a room and one time I had a condo with friends. This is the first time I was actually depending on a hotel in the sale and didn't get one so we will see ..

I would not be too nervous. In the past, the hotels popped up all the time on the hotel page. You WILL have a place, though depending on your luck, it may or may not be walkable. FoCC is also a great source. I got nothing during the last hotelpocolypse, but a kind FoCC'er helped me out.

Keep checking the onpeak page. Downtown hotels will pop.  If not the big ones, then definitely the likes of intercontinental or Wyndham.

I know the Pulse allow us to do it. Really early on before the sale got like this the Marriott gaslamp let us do it but I think we got someone who had no idea what they were doing. They wouldn't allow it after that and that was maybe 6 years ago. Plus was about 2018

It's usually cheaper to book the out of con days on your own instead of adding them to your On Peak reservation. They will usually let you combine reservations once you get there so you don't have to change rooms.

Thank you! After your suggestion I ran the numbers and I think we're in trouble.  There must be another event/convention/something going on that weekend because it's $694 per room just Saturday night at MGH  :'(  so now I guess we look at staying one night somewhere else, or stick with my backup hotel I booked months back that has our full stay.

Has anyone had any luck (or advice) on converting a 1-bed double occupancy to 2-beds?  Or is it pretty set in stone?

So two years, I've accidentally selected DOUBLE (1-bed) when I meant to select TWIN (2-bed). One was Omni, and the other was Westln Gaslamp. Neither time, I was able to change to 2-bed.

BUT... in the case of Westin, I booked an extra night (Tuesday) directly through their website. And when I checked in on Tuesday and had them combine my two reservations, I asked if I could just keep the two bed, and they said YES! But for the Omni, they couldn't do the same since they were absolutely booked to capacity.

So the answer is, it depends on how accommodating then hotel staff is.

I purposely didn't check my email until noontime, as I was busy with work and didn't want the disappointment of possibly not getting a hotel to interfere.

But I did finally check at lunchtime, and I found out I got my second choice -- Hilton Bayfront! My first was Marriott Marquis, which I thought I had a good shot at getting since I got in at 9:00:50 PDT. But I'm not in any way disappointed, because we all know, any downtown hotel is a victory. And I've definitely enjoyed my stay at Bayfront in the past.

My sister got in a few seconds after me and got her first choice -- Manchester Grand Hyatt.

BTW, if it matters, my email arrived at 8:54am PDT.

Post by: scottydizzy on May 03, 2022, 03:31:44 PM
Also keep in mind that OnPeak holds the reservation until about 3weeks before the con and the transfers it to the hotel. Once it's transferred, you can call and try to make any adjustments ahead of time since you'll be talking to an actual rep of the hotel that can look up your reservation.

I've done this a few times requesting certain floors/balconies, etc. The hotel folks are usually very helpful if you are kind to them and understand they are likely dealing with a lot of us trying to get our way :)

Best of luck

We got Springhills, which was our 5th choice. It was a last minute addition since I read all their rooms were practically suites, which seems about perfect for 3 (possibly 4) of us. I didn't have time to look up anything on it then, but it appears to be a bit of a walking distance (1 mile). We do a lot of back and forth. Seems like a shuttle ride could take long, if not longer, than walking. Was really hoping for MMM or something closer or even somewhere on Shelter Island. I kinda like being out there. Doesn't look like I made it into Hotel Exchange, so we'll probably just stick with this one.

So I think SpringHill Suites is where the old Holiday Inn by the Bay used to be (or on the same block). That Holiday Inn I’ve stayed at a couple times for SDCC, and it’s walkable, Depending on the shuttle route and whether the hotel is near the first or near the last stop, it might be faster walking than taking the shuttle. In my past experience (which was over a decade ago), walking to the con from that area has been faster, but taking shuttle back to the hotel has been faster (also, tired feet).

I wouldn’t worry at all. Even now, I’m going to try for a better hotel too even though I have MGH. Downtown ones WILL pop up on Onpeak. You just have to be diligent on the forum and Twitter. There are many people in the same boat.

Add to the above, if you are especially persistent and don't mind potentially hotel hopping, you can find available rooms for one or two days on OnPeak if you stalk the website frequently enough. And eventually, you might be able to secure a walkable hotel all four days, just potentially at different hotels. Though getting a Saturday hotel is by far the most difficult.

I've gone this route in the past, where I had a hotel further out (near the airport), but then got lucky and found a room within a few blocks of the convention center for the latter days. Yes, it was annoying to pack up and switch hotels, but being closer to the con was worth it.

In 2018, I crapped out on the lottery and ultimately wound up with a room at the Hotel Republic. It had never been on my radar before. Turns out, before it was the Republic, it was a W - and the rooms were modern and super-comfortable. It was also two blocks from the trolley, which turned out to be as convenient as any of the downtown hotels that aren't adjacent to or directly across the street from the Convention Center.

If that one turns up on the OnPeak list on May 17, I give it my strongest recommendations.

It’s not too terrible a walk especially if you walk the bay side - cuts down a few minutes. But this hotel is also right across the street from the trolly station if the shuttle service isn’t being ideal. We usually went those routes when we stay here. Don’t think I’ve ever used the shuttle? Haha.

It's actually when you check out...but they'll put your card on file for the weekend to make sure it can cover the cost, then charge it and any other expenses when you check out.

~S

I guess coz they have always put a hold on the money I just take it that I don't have the money from when I check in lol, but you are right the finalisation of the payment doesn't happen till after checkout

I received no email and got in around 9:02 ish. I am wondering how many rooms were actually available through onpeak because I've seen people who got in at 9 am or a fews seconds in and either got nothing or some random choice. Google says hotels are 53% available currently, so I wonder are hotels keeping more of their rooms?

I got in shortly after 9, and got my first choice. But also I didn't book something popular, at least not in my mind. I'd be curious what hotels you put in your top 5 or 6, and whether or not they are the ultra popular ones. Cause to me that has a humongous affect on the lottery.

First timer here with hotelpocalypse. Got in around within 45 secs and selected 8 hotels with no email received. I keep hearing that there’s a chance next week. But some folks were saying Hotel draws was based on the time of entrance to the form and not when it was completed. Is that correct? Or are there folks that got in under 1 min and also didn’t hotels or were placed on a waitlist?

ahh yes, here comes that familiar feeling of me trying to figure out what the OnPeak pattern is after six cups of coffee while realizing none of it makes sense.

feels good to be back.

People have been trying to figure out the OnPeak special sauce for years

Their is a really interesting article written a few years ago. It might shed some light

I feel a little guilty posting about my good luck, but this year was the easiest ever for me--got in in less than 15 seconds, spent a leisurely 10 minutes selecting six downtown hotels and triple-checking that I had entered everything correctly, and got my first choice (MGH). For anyone worried about getting a room, if my previous 10 SDCCs are any indicator, you WILL get a room and very probably one downtown. I've managed to get one through the forum's Exchange, by stalking the On Peak site for weeks, by combining days at two different hotels, or by just sending out a general appeal to this group of lovely humans. It's nerve-wracking and time-consuming, but it's completely possible.

BTW, I always make MGH my first choice because (I think) it has the most rooms of all the downtown hotels, increasing the odds of getting a room. Also, it won my allegiance the first time I stayed there, when I came down from my room and found Matt Smith standing all by himself at the front desk, waiting for the concierge. :-)

Yeah, the only way you possibly won't get a downtown hotel, from my experience, is if you're too lazy to check Onpeak daily until you get one once the second chance sale is done. There are cancels every day and hotels are still holding some rooms open, so downtown hotels trickle in once a day until very close to the con.

I’ve gotten both MGH and Bayfront this way.  I would check the Onpeak website religiously throughout the day on my phone.  A lot of times  people will also post in the forum when  a new block of hotels appear on the Onpeak website..

So I was looking at booking a room directly through the hotel for Tuesday night. And I’m reading up on the Destination charge, which I’d never paid attention to. For at least the two hotels I looked at — Hilton Bayfront & Manchester Grand Hyatt — the charge includes free Wi-Fi, $10-15 daily credit for food, one hour bicycle rental, discount for spa, and other miscellaneous unspecified discounts.

The food credit will definitely come in handy when it comes to grabbing something quick in the morning.

I assume so. They didn’t specify exactly. I’m hoping it extends to whatever cafes are in the hotel. A coffee + croissant would be a nice way to start the day in some long ass line somewhere.

My friend and I stayed at the Bayfront for the Green Day/Fallout Boy/Wheezer concert overnight (didn't plan to drive home same night) in summer last year, and they told her that it could be used at any of their restaurants too. So we ended up using it for breakfast in the morning at Odysea Lounge (Vela was closed etc.) So, unless they changed that policy, it should be other places within the hotel's purview too.

But yeah, it's apparently a relatively new-ish fee, at least that's what they told her last year, and she is a pretty high Honor's member, but they didn't waive it.

Hilton gives $15 dollar credit's to 2 folks in the room. As long as the main member has gold status. More for Diamond etc

it's usually good at any hotel restaurants on site. Like, not at Starbucks for example

My friend got a group reservation for 3 rooms at the MGH and when she submitted the deposit, she was able to assign each room to the person responsible for that room.

Not really a transfer, but the confirmation she got included the updated names and emails. She was even able to reduce one of the rooms to 3 nights instead of 4 since the other occupants are going down Thursday.

Ultimately, you may be able to just wait until the reservation transfers to the hotel a couple of weeks before the convention and make any name changes, etc.

Luck!

I haven't actually heard much from anyone about what OP will do over the phone this year. All I've heard is people are having trouble getting through to them period. People started trying the main line recently, but I don't think anyone has reported back on how it's going. The person I transferred to this year was able to get her name on as a roommate at least, and in the past that's always been enough to deal with it later directly with the hotel.

Hi! I actually was able to successfully change the name on a reservation transferred to me from somebody on the exchange. I was NOT listed as a Roommate.

First, do NOT call the 877-552-6642 number. I didn't get anywhere there. Use the international number which is 312-527-7300. Select the appropriate prompts (There were two I believe, one asking if you were a single or group reservation. I can't recall the other).

As long as you have the identifying information of whoever is on file initially (Name, address, etc.), the representative simply asked what name I wanted the reservation updated to. I was able to update all this info before the phone-call via the email confirmation OnPeak sent initially. They sent me a new confirmation email afterwards and everything was now under my name.

I know someone that called to change the info on their reservation - OP also asked for the last 4 digits of the card used to put down the deposit. OP changed all the info they couldn't change - including roommate name and the address on the account.

Okay, I am trying to transfer a room to another member.  That member tried calling yesterday and was shot down and they said they needed me to call.  I called today myself and they said comic-con now requires a credit card on file to transfer the room.  Therefore the member I'm transferring to needs to call again and give them my information and put down her card on file in order to transfer.

So it looks like if there isn't a card on file, you need to have one in order to change anything on the reservation over the phone.  If there is already a card on file, you need to have the information available to change reservation details.

Update on name changes with OnPeak. My situation is I had a one room reservation with someone else's name on it. I needed to make it my name. I already made the deposit.

I logged into the reservation and clicked Help (top right), then Contact Us link. Since I was logged into the reservation with the other person's name that needed to be removed, I asked them to remove "me" from the reservation and make [my real name] the occupant name and my daughter the roommate name. They changed it within a couple hours. :)

Can't tell you how happy I am not to have to call them!

I got the MGH, which was my... 4th choice?  I was really hoping for Bayfront or MMM this year considering I got in within the first minute of queue but oh well.  On the plus side, MGH allows doggos so she'll get to enjoy the SD humidity as well.

On a side note, out of all my hotelapocalypses (5 now?), I've only gotten MGH or Omni.  It's really weird.

So from what I can tell due to submitting multiple forms with multiple people at the same time, it seems like they consolidated your submissions based on username and gave you a choice based on that. I split emails on the same username at the same entry time to test, and the email differences didnt seem to matter.

I'm very disappointed with the hotel On Peak assigned me to. I got into the system 6 mins into the sale, and at the tail ass end of Wave 2, they assign me, a single female requesting one single room, has been relegated to Shelter Island, Bay Club, a hotel that was NOT one of my 10 choices! I'll decline it because there is no way in hell I'm dealing with the shuttle. I need to be downtown and this process is incredibly unfair and extremely random. For people to get hotels within crawling distance, and for someone to get one of the hotels so far away that was not on my list just doesn't make sense. I'll have to take my chances with other options but this just sucks.

The hotel I was assigned is absolutely gorgeous, but a 45 min Shuttle ride from Shelter Island is not convenient. I'm working on securing an extr room in downtown. It's more expensive, but the convenience of the hotel is what I need, especially as I"m going solo.

Yes, basically all the hotels in the CCI block don't have all their rooms in the SDCC block. They then put them up for reservation at ridiculous rates outside the lottery. People who can and want to are able to pay those prices to get a room there as such.

You would need to reserve the room first with a credit card, then you can make changes.

Just know that representatives have been telling people different things. Some people are being told that they have to put a deposit down before they (customer service) can make any changes to the reservations. Some people are being told that they can make the changes in advance of the deposit being placed down. Also, I don't know if it's changed from wave 1, but during wave 1 the OnPeak dedicated SDCC line was down and basically not working. You could only reach them via the email, the reservation help button (which I don't know if you have access to without a deposit being down,) or via the main line.

For anyone who might need it, OnPeak's main line is: 1-312-527-7270

Edit: I believe their phone hours are currently 8am-4:30pm CENTRAL! So they've been down for a while today yet.

Extra edit: didn't say it initially because Steve basically already answered in a way, but I'll expand. You can usually change reservation dates after deposit online, this year they are not letting you do it on individual reservations before paying the deposit (you used to be able to adjust more things before the deposit.) However, unless you're removing nights, you probably can't add nights at this point. They generally lock adding nights for all reservations during the two waves. After the waves end, and definitely by the time the site goes live for waitlist etc., you should be able to adjust nights after all this calms down. So long as you're not trying to add convention nights (thurs night, fri night, sat night) it should be fine and should be available at a later date.

Has anyone ever had any luck changing their beds from 1 to 2? We were lucky enough to get the Marriott Marquis on Round 1 with 1 bed. It would just be me and a friend so we'd share the bed as we usually do. I found out this week I'm expecting and would be around 18 weeks at SDCC, and think it might be easier for me to have my own bed. That being said, I wanted to see if anyone's been able to change their bed preference after putting in a deposit? Thanks!

Congratulations!!!
I stayed at the MMM in 2017 and my reservation was for 1 king and I was able to get two beds. Now I don't know if this will work and I just got lucky but I added a third person to the reservation with onpeak. Once the Marriott got my reservation, I was changed to 2 beds room type. The 2 beds type was a slightly higher rate but nothing crazy. Funfact but the Marriott later upgraded me to bay view while I was checking in. They are seriously the best!

We did not have any luck getting changed to 2 beds in 2018 when we were at the Omni. We did get a rollaway bed to help. Made the room cramped but it was a lot easier than having to share a queen bed with my son. Congrats on expecting! Hopefully you can get your own bed. Each hotel is different.

I hadn't seen anyone get the Residence Inn Downtown/Gaslamp either, and it was our first choice as well. I've seen a lot of people getting the Hyatt, Hard Rock, and Omni, but nothing downtown. This is our first time doing the Hotel Apocalypse, and we got a hotel that wasn't on our list (Shelter Island), so we are in search of a downtown hotel as well since this is our first time doing the con with a little one and we want to be close in case of emergencies.

That being said, shameless plug, if you have an extra Gaslamp room we'd love to be considered! I hear there is a Hotel Exchange thread on this forum, but I didn't discover this wonderful forum until today (first time doing the Hotel Apocalypse, read about it in the SDCC unofficial blog) so I will keep active until I get access next time!

I will be frank, those coming here just for a hotel at this point don't really have a chance.  This forum has a strong community and everyone tends to take care of the people that are active and around all year long.  So I encourage you to look around the forum and get to know where things are and become an active participant.  Maybe you will be the one able to help people in future years!

I will be frank, those coming here just for a hotel at this point don't really have a chance.  This forum has a strong community and everyone tends to take care of the people that are active and around all year long.  So I encourage you to look around the forum and get to know where things are and become an active participant.  Maybe you will be the one able to help people in future years!

@sefton42 (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=2091) Sorry about that! This is my first ever hotel apocalypse so I apologize if I'm doing things incorrectly! We went through the process and have a hotel (Shelter Island -- wasn't on our list), just wanted to try and see if we could potentially grab a closer downtown hotel that someone has to spare and pass our hotel to someone else who might need it. We also have a friend who has a couple of non-downtown hotels to share too -- is there a place we can post those as well? Or should we share it here?

I just discovered this forum because of the hotel apocalypse, but I will for sure keep active in this community as well (I am an active follower of the SDCC Unofficial Blog Twitter and in a few reddit/FB groups)!

This thread is to discuss hotels, however, this thread is not for asking and giving away hotels.  There is a thread for those who don't qualify for the exchange in this area.  You may post your request there.

@kimchi_paradise (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=9501) We're always glad to have new members! I think @NCDS (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=2339) was just trying to keep everyone's expectations realistic. We all try to help each other out, but basically everyone wants a close downtown hotel - even in here - so not everyone will get what they want. Definitely stay to discuss, and of course it never hurts to ask for what you want (in the appropriate thead, of course). Welcome!

Also I don't speak for NCDS so she's welcome to come kick my butt if I have totally misinterpreted her.

I won't kick your butt  ;) 

I know I can be more blunt than I should be sometimes, but yes I am trying to level expectations.  I don't think the Unofficial blog really let's people know what we are and what we are doing here.  I think they give the impression that you can come here and just get what you want and that is 100% not it.  I wish they wouldn't mention us.

This only works if we work together, when people come here for the first time after the hotel emails go out it's pretty much game over and they are not going to get anything.

Personally, if I have room to give I look for a member that has been on for a while and participates. 

However, if people thought of it as oh look at this great resource I am going to stick around and get to know everyone I would be thrilled.  We can use more community members like that!

I did say I was sensitive on this subject, but it's really me trying to protect everyone here.  You all are my family!

And honestly, if someone just asks me here in this thread if they can have a room (I gave that MMM room to a friend who struck out anyway), I’m just going to ignore it, because if I respond to one person, I could get flooded with requests.

Thanks so much guys for all of the reassurance! Lol so sorry, I probably came in here crashing the party like the Koolaid man! I appreciate it all -- I wish I found this community sooner! Yea the SDCC blog leads here but even then I had to google and join. Maybe some disclosure that it's usually for long-time members could be useful! Usually we just go early-bird for our hotels since it's easiest for us, but we had a kiddo during the pandemic, and so with that the life changes encourage us to be closer this time and try out the craziness that is Hotel Apocalypse. I can see why it gets that name! It's interesting that you could still score a hotel even without going through the whole process -- so I could totally see others trying to take advantage of that. Keep doing what you guys are doing!

And that meme is hilarious! @NCDS (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=2339) you don't deserve a broomstick! lolol you are the bearer of justice!

I am not sure what page it was but there are some good stories about people's experience with the waitlist and open sale that could be helpful.

I know there are people on here who got good hotels that way in the past.  I haven't used it so I am worthless to you there.  I think a lot of F5 is involved.

I've definitely heard a lot of stories about people who stalk the waitlist and check it every hour or so, then jump on a downtown room that becomes available. I did it myself one year and got Hilton Bayfront.

Ugh on that SDCC Blog mention. It does make it sound like anyone can wander over here and we are just handing out hotel rooms to any takers. That is NOT what we do here... but I'm sure that if CCI gets wind of it and thinks that's what we're doing, we might be subject to some blowback.
Title: Re: SDCC 2022 Hotel Discussion
Post by: semigeekgirl on May 11, 2022, 02:38:15 PM
Well, if CCI would like to remove us from the process by moving to well-organized and fair live-booking utilizing a randomized queue and upfront payment, so that no one reserves extra rooms and everyone gets to choose for themselves from what's left during their booking slot... I'm all for it.

But since they seem to have no interest in doing that and/or are content with paying OnPeak the big bucks to manage the process incredibly poorly... we will continue to help each other out as much as we can for as long as we can.

True and it's not like we are hoarding rooms, but they make us enter on a wokday when we can't communitate with our other roommates at work.  Two days notice isn't enough time to come up with a plan to al fill out the form together.  We are lucky our jobs let us do it in the first place.

It's not the lack of notice. It's the fact that we can't just choose our own rooms. This whole lottery + no transparency as to how rooms are actually allocated means that EVERYONE is entering the lottery, because we have no idea what we will get. If we were able to choose and book.confirm immediately, then everyone else in our room would leave the queue and there would be very few cancelled rooms. An immediate deposit upon booking would seriously discourage room hoarding. But CCI refuses to do that.

@NCDS (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=2339) @SamTurtledove (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1732) we checked off the waitlist! Although I did call OnPeak to ask some questions, and they said that since we got a hotel that wasn't on our list but still "was the closest available regardless of price" we weren't eligible for the waitlist. It sounds like that may not be true? I feel like everyone seems to have different information from their conversations from OnPeak.  What is the source of truth? Would love to be on the waitlist if possible, especially if we don't go with the room they gave us.

Some other things I learned from the person I spoke to:

- If you have multiple rooms, you can give rooms that you don't need to others. For example, if you have 2 rooms with 1 bed each and only need one of them, you could give one room to another person.
- You can add days depending on eligibility -- it is contingent that those days are actually available. So if you get a room from someone who reserved from 7/21 to 7/23 and you need 7/20 to 7/24, you can call and ask to extend, but there is no guarantee.
- You can have multiple deposits for rooms, but you are on the hook for the 3% service charge if you cancel. If you cancel after the June 1st deadline, you forfeit your 2 nights+tax deposit completely. You can however have your stay broken up (i.e. Residence Inn for 2 nights, Omni for 2 nights, Sofia for 1 night) on the same card.

I thought I'd share this info to anyone who could use it, but it looks like this info might depend on who you talk to.

Yes that info is correct & how most of us operate with rooms.  When I do my forms, I always have a lot of days that was someone can shrink them if they want a lot easier to subtract then add lol

Even if you can't be on the waitlist, after may 17th probably there will be a link you can use to refresh a million times and catch hotels as they pop up available.

I kinda have been doing that the last 3 cons and got MMM, HBF and Horton out of it. I have an office work with 2 monitors, so I just do my job on one and on the other have the waitlist open with and auto refresher addon all day long lol its a little exhausting but have been really worth the time for me, the MMM was for my honeymoon!

It IS exhausting. I've done this quite a few times. But for me, it was worth it to get a hotel within walking distance (which for me is under a mile). I've managed to have a downtown hotel every single year since I've been going (2003), except for that first year (mainly because I didn't know anything about SDCC, and I was a complete noob). In at least 5-6 of those years those downtown hotels came due to my persistence, stalking OnPeak / Travel Planners multiple times a day an hour, but a couple of years the hotel came because of FoCC.

The lesson is, persistence / tenacity can pay off, with maybe a sprinkling of luck No, it's not a guarantee you'll get that downtown hotel, but you definitely increase your chances over passively waiting.

Congratulations on your honeymoon! What time does the waitlist usually start? I still have to read up on the "what happens next" of the hotel apocalypse, but I agree with @accelerate (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=4314) that I'd rather be actively instead of passively waiting!

If you have a room you don't need a link, open up your booking and then log out it will take you to the page that has the current availability, at the moment it just has the early bird hotel with no availability but that will be updated when the waitlist opens.

In at 9:06 and got nothing, but someone in our group ended up with an extra Springhill Suites Downtown (Little Italy) and transferred it to me. :) No complaints about the hotel from me…it’s pretty new, with free breakfast, and less than a mile away from the Hall A side of the convention center as well as right across from the trolley.

Changing my name was easy. After I paid the deposit I simply emailed OnPeak from the form with my name & roommate’s name and they changed it within 24 hours.

Hi,

First of all, thanks for everyone's help during this hotel apocalypse.

Just wondering, if you got a hotel room, but it wasn't part of your top 12 selections, would you only get access to the first waitlist if you cancel or did not do the two nights deposit? Or would you still be able to be on the waitlist if you did do the deposit.

Thanks !  :)

In 2019, a Waitlist Process email arrived on April 24, before the end of Round 2 deposits. The email confirmed the Waitlist sale on April 29. Around that timeframe, a separate Waitlist discussion/watch thread was created.

The 2022 "Form Successfully Submitted" page stated "If your request cannot be accommodated, you will be notified no later than May 17, 2022. At that time you will be able to book any available room and a deposit will be required at the time of booking."

If the 2022 waitlist sale does occur on or about the 17th,  a similar process email may arrive soon.

If we were able to choose and book.confirm immediately, then everyone else in our room would leave the queue and there would be very few cancelled rooms. An immediate deposit upon booking would seriously discourage room hoarding. But CCI refuses to do that.

I couldn't agree more. I wish the hotel selection was like buying the hottest concert tickets (after 30 years, buying Pearl Jam tickets is a b***h) because EVERYONE would be on the same playing field and there would be no hoarding. We would request exactly what we want. If that suddenly isn't available, go to our #2, and so on. Those participating would have the funds available to participate, but this slow roll out lottery based on your time stamp of filling out the request form is not fair, it's not random, and it's not efficient. None of us should have to be praying and crossing our fingers to get be notified of winning a room in one of our top 5 choices, spread out over several weeks. This is torture.

I got placed in Wave 2 at a Shelter Island hotel. As I'm not all that familiar with SD, I had to Google Shelter Island. The hotel was gorgeous, and I wouldn't mind staying there in the future for a non-SDCC event. But I'm not down with being so far removed from the convention center, and I'm a walker, I love walking. But to be placed at a hotel that wasn't in my top 10, I pre-selected a MV hotel, and I got none of them. I'm grateful that a member of this forum who is a very seasoned Comic Con attendee, had an extra room at the Manchester Grand Hyatt and reached out to me. It was a little more than I budgeted, but it's worth it due to the time I would have to commit to a 45 min shuttle, r/t, over 4 days. And again, I'm going solo so I just didn't like being so remote.

Anyway, I just wanted to add my two cents and say that On Peak provides a good service, but it seems like 60% of the users are not happy with the end results and I was one of them.

OnPeak is a strange animal.  In the forest of hotels, no one I know of has ever captured the elusive Pendry hotel, though many have tried.  The Pendry has finally been banished from the forest, perhaps never to be seen again on the OnPeak list of hotels.   8)

I couldn't agree more. I wish the hotel selection was like buying the hottest concert tickets (after 30 years, buying Pearl Jam tickets is a b***h) because EVERYONE would be on the same playing field and there would be no hoarding. We would request exactly what we want. If that suddenly isn't available, go to our #2, and so on. Those participating would have the funds available to participate, but this slow roll out lottery based on your time stamp of filling out the request form is not fair, it's not random, and it's not efficient. None of us should have to be praying and crossing our fingers to get be notified of winning a room in one of our top 5 choices, spread out over several weeks. This is torture.

I got placed in Wave 2 at a Shelter Island hotel. As I'm not all that familiar with SD, I had to Google Shelter Island. The hotel was gorgeous, and I wouldn't mind staying there in the future for a non-SDCC event. But I'm not down with being so far removed from the convention center, and I'm a walker, I love walking.

That's exactly what happened with us. And I think some things to boot as a newcomer to this process are the lack of clarity of what happens next (really the source of truth seems to be "what happened last year" or "in experience" ), the slight inconsistency of information across OnPeak employees (basically depends on who you talk to)... Somehow the process creates more of a "some who have all, many who have none" where if you don't have an extensive network going to the con that you can work together with, it's pretty much the luck of the draw. Same with badges, honestly.

Luckily though this community is nice enough to help each other out, where those who get lucky are open and super kind to help others out (like yourself!) so that everyone gets a slice of cake in the end. I can't imagine what it would be like if this community wasn't as nice as it is.

I got in 902ish and didn’t get any of my choices but they dropped Residence Inn downtown. Wife got in 903-904 and got Humphrey’s. Neither were on our list. We had luck with a friend and got something we’re happy with.

Interesting quite a few of you are still getting downtown hotels. I know round 2 in the past has given out downtown hotels, but it kinda seems like there’s more this year? I will be interested if final statistics bear that out.

My friend got Palomar today, which was one of his choices. so I’m excited for him.
Yeah I also got a downtown hotel, closer to the airport than the Convention Center. I only tried to help out someone so it's not a big deal for me.  But I too was surprised to get a relatively close hotel

In at 9:02 got the Sheraton (yep the one you could get from the early bird sale) that's about 4 miles away which doesn't work for me since i just had surgery. It's wasn't on my list. I swear my 9:02 time is cursed! Lol
Is that hotel on the SDCC shuttle line?

CCI is also its own strange animal. 

Hotels are for profit.  They have their own infrastructure that handles 'normal' reservation traffic.  Then you've got Comic Con.  130,000 rabid fans of pop culture.  The hotels obviously wouldn't be able to handle the traffic, especially those most in demand.  In addition to that, is the complexity of determining who gets what hotel (approximately 50), all with different configurations and capacity. For an event that occurs once a year, the hotels and I guess CCI, determined it's more economical to outsource the process.  In comes On Peak. It serves the purpose of handling the traffic.  They're probably never going to tell us the algorithm they use, and it would obviously be impossible to make most everybody happy.

I did get a chuckle around @Dune930 (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=8372) comments on staying on Shelter Island.  That's where I stayed my first year.  The hotel was fine, and I was very impressed with how well the shuttle was organized.  I traveled solo as well.   :)

What is interesting is that The Pendry was available during Comic Con Special Edition back in November. So either it's a recent development that OnPeak and Pendry parted ways, or something behind the scenes is going on.

They’re booked. I had called when I noticed they weren’t blacked out for the corporate rate, and they told me there were no availabilities.

Looks like maybe a big studio booking the Pendry? That sounds good from that end.

I wasn't surprised the Pendry was available during CCSE.  There was a lot of availability at all the downtown hotels. It was an opportunity for business, which I'm sure they were happy to get, given the shut downs from the previous months.  It pretty much made sense that the Pendry was no longer part of the hotel sale, as in the years that it's been open, we haven't heard of anyone getting it during Comic Con.  I put it as one of my choices the first year it opened.  After that, I didn't waste any of my choices on the Pendry.

From Marvel I've ran into Mike Colter (Luke Cage) and Chadwick Bosman (Black Panther) at  Hard Rock.  But also from WB side I've seen Jason Mamoa, entire Suicide Squad cast, and Ezra Miller there.
Maybe not a battle of the studios, possibly just more likely with the TV shows filming interviews there.

One year, one of my personal group's rooms was across from John Barrowman's room lol

Isn't SyFy everyone known to always stay at Solamar? Or am I thinking of the wrong one?

Many years ago I stayed at Humphrey's on Shelter Island. I absolutely agree with you, never again.  The bus took forever, and oftentimes was full and so I couldn't even board.  The price of the Shelter Island hotels aren't worth it versus downtown. I'd pay a little more to be in Downtown. I probably sound super snobby saying this.

Hey...  I get it.  I absolutely LOVE staying downtown.  LOVE IT!!!

But, there will always be a special place in my heart for Shelter Island.  It's where I stayed for my first Comic Con (2015).  This may be a surprise, but I did absolutely no research on Comic Con.  I stayed at Humphrey's as well.  I didn't know anything about the hotel sale, so I didn't even participate.  I did look at the list from CCI, and took a shot at Humphrey's not knowing anything about it (After striking out at trying to get a hotel close to the convention center   :) ).  I had no expectations, so the shuttle trip didn't bother me.  After having a blast my first day, I had so much energy, that I would get up early to catch the shuttle, so I always had a seat.  As there were many Con attendees on the shuttle, I fed off their energy.

On a side note, a couple made a reservation at Humphreys at the moment that I was checking in.  The rate they were quoted was $100/day more than I was paying.  They took that rate.  That told me something was special about the adventure I was about to embark upon.

I wasn't going to do SDCC this year, but did the Hotel Lottery "just in case." I ended up getting a downtown hotel for the days I can attend and I'm HAPPY I'm going back to Comic-Con. The flight is way more than I usually pay and because my crew can't make it this year, the hotel cost is all on me. But, this is the FIRST trip I've taken all year and after this past year, I'm looking forward to being with MY PEOPLE!!!

It is one of the smaller hotels, so I think that may be part of it. Fewer rooms. Compared with The Marriott Marquis Marina, especially.

It's got a full kitchen, free continental breakfast, and it's walking distance from the con. Probably one of the best value hotels to stay for comic con, it's like staying in an apartment for the same price as a hotel room.

But like others said it's also really small since you've got suite style living.

So I didn't get a specific email, but I got an email that said my request was cancelled, and there was a link that said "Book now". I refreshed the page a couple of times, and it look like the waitlist went live! My top hotels had all but one day (omni missing saturday, MGH missing Friday, etc.) but I got Solamar hotel!

There were 2 residence inns, but none of which seemed close to the convention center....

Were all days available for you? I think I tried that one but not all the days were available...

Maybe if I waited a moment then it might have popped up...?

Also Hard Rock wasn't available when I had access to the hotel...

It might have taken it out of inventory when i got to the booking page. Took a little while for me to enter all the information. But yes i saw all days.

I see a lot of availability. 

Obviously the real close hotels are booked, but there are hotels that are considered downtown that are open, and there's definitely availability further out and on shuttle route.

Finally got the email and grabbed Wyndham San Diego Bayside. Not the closest of what was available but we liked it in the past and didn't require us to change rooms during the con. Still will keep an eye out for some that we're higher on our list opening up though.

This might be helpful for those that didn't get the waitlist email.

I didn't get a waitlist email.  I got a message that I didn't reserve a hotel that i got in the second round, and that the request was cancelled..  In that same email, there was a link that said 'Book A Room'.  I clicked on that, and it went thru the motions to create another account for me (send activation code, email address).  Once I did that, and picked my password, it pulled up all availability.

Ended up getting Springhill Suites off the waitlist. There were some closer hotels available, but most didn't have the occupancy I needed or the days. Stayed at Springhill in 2019, so I was good with it this time around.

I have a Hotel Indigo 7/20-7/24 if someone needs a Gaslamp hotel.  Will need to transfer funds for the deposit and switch to your credit card.

You can transfer a reservation, but the new reservation holder will have to repay the deposit directly to you - OnPeak will not refund you and charge the new person.

The cancellation policy per CCI is:
"Reservations may be cancelled on or before Tuesday, May 31, 2022, by 11:59pm Central Daylight Time (CDT)/9:59pm Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) to receive a refund of the two-night room and tax deposit minus the non-refundable service fee.
Reservations cancelled on or after Wednesday, June 1, 2022, ALL DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE."

So you can cancel until 5/31 but you will lose the 3% fee.

Call OnPeak at (312) 527-7270 and let them know that you have not received your waitlist email and they will send you another one. HOWEVER - stay on the line with them until you receive it and verify that it works. It is very slow to arrive and the first one they sent me came up as 500 Internal Sever Error.

In my skeptical mind, I do believe OnPeak was toying with us. It took 2 links for me as well. I think the employee I spoke to was hoping I would hang up right after getting the first link, without checking it.  He was soooooo slow. Thanks to notes here, I tested the crappy first link, then stayed on for as long as it took to send and test again. Yay!

Note: He checked my email and name. I think to make sure I was legit. That was a good thing.

I think it should open up for everyone on May 25th! So you'll be able to see what's left after then. You're less likely to stay downtown, but honestly you'll have shuttle access so it shouldn't be too bad! And there's always early bird hotels in Mission Valley!

To follow up on what kimchi_paradise said, also keep an eye on them especially around the cancellation deadlines (ie. full refund - processing fee, only 1 night's fee cancellation, etc.) But people often keep an eye on the list regularly and get gaslamp hotels closer to July too right up until shortly before the con. (By that point, you've usually booked something else though and may eat a fee if you cancel that one.)

There will of course be Mission Valley hotels definitely available through early bird (I can't remember when it ends but probably soon) and definitely once the main list opens up on the 25th. So you're definitely not completely out of luck.

There are several Comic Con week units at the Gaslamp Plaza Suites available for rent on tugbbs.com.  There's a studio that sleeps 4 for $1500, and two 1BR/2Ba units that sleep 6 for $2500 and $3000. The dates are 7/17-24 and it includes free breakfast at their rooftop restaurant. and it's a 0.6mi walk to the Convention Center.

If you are going to be attending SDCC regularly then you might want to consider buying a unit at the Gaslamp Plaza Suites.  You can pick up resale units for free or very cheap.

You are correct. Strange I thought that the dates used to default to Wednesday through Sunday, now it looks like it defaults to just Thursday night.
onPeak is forcing us to enter check-in and check-out dates to get the true inventory for the con dates.

We got the MGH but only from Tuesday-Saturday. We tried calling Onpeaks & the hotel but no progress so far. I can see the MGH still has room availability from Saturday to Monday so it’s not like rooms aren’t unavailable. Does it get easier to extend once the general sales happen?

Did you try to do it online.

I did it for mine with my reservation at MMM.  I clicked on 'view details, make changes, or cancel' link.  it showed the days i wanted were available, so when i clicked on them, it took my changes.

Thanks! I guess I always made it in time for the lottery before, so it didn't occur to me that you couldn't even check the list if you didn't.  It's such a change from the Special Edition one last year, where there was so much hotel availability I was even able to find reward nights at the Hilton Bayfront.

Where are you seeing the availability? If it's OnPeak, have you tried doing it online like sessionka said? Though as Sam said, they're only seeing Sunday availability.

MGH won't be able to help you directly with an OnPeak reservation. Reservation information doesn't go to the actual hotels until 1-2 weeks pre-convention. So, until then only OP can help you.

Sam mentioned this, you can do bookend dates in a separate reservation(s) directly through the hotel, sometimes depending on the nights you can get better rates too than the con rate for certain nights. Ideally, make sure to book the same type of room you have through your OP one (guests, beds, etc.) When the reservations transfer, you can then call them and ask if they can combine the reservations/note in them that they're basically for a single stay. They may or may not do a full combination.

When you check-in to MGH then, you also tell them about it and request to stay in the same room throughout the duration of your stay. Then you can discuss if you need to do anything additional due to the multiple reservations (like call the desk to confirm or something or go down to check-in briefly.) Many people on the forum who have longer stays do this basically yearly and it's almost always successful. I haven't done it personally, but maybe one of the people who have can chime in on this. It's escaping me who usually does this...

Edit: Someone mentioned resort/destination fees. Sometimes those are waived for SDCC lotto reservations, sometimes they are not and are still charged on check-out. If I'm not remembering incorrectly, I'm pretty sure OP has somewhere verbiage about how there may be extra hotel specific fees that you will pay when you arrive. So that may or may not be an extra cost when booking directly.

Edit 2: I'm attempting to find the verbiage about the extra resort/destination fees and I can't find it on the current OP emails, reservation, etc. so they may have removed it. But I'm like 90% certain they used to have something as to that affect, but very vague.

Post by: marcia29 on May 19, 2022, 06:32:13 PM
I have had success combining bookend days with OnPeak days. It may help if you are a member of the hotel  reward program or similar.  It has probably helped that they were the same room type.  Pretty smooth.

Thanks for the advice about bookending Onpeak reservations with hotel ones. I just made reservations today to do just that and I was hoping to keep the same room throughout the con.

Resort fees are definitely charged when you check in at MGH. I stayed there in 2019 and I'll be staying there this year. Their fee is $39 a day.

Marcia made a good point. Joining their rewards program (they're basically all free, you'll just be a low tier member) seems to help in many things, so it's recommended even if you don't stay there/with that chain often (sometimes they also give members, even basic, free wifi and things like that if it's not already included in the nightly fees.) Some hotel chains will waive the resort/destination fees sometimes for even base level hotel rewards members, you just have to ask about it.

If you don't want the rewards emails, just make sure to unsubscribe from the list so they don't spam you with vacation email twice a week  :D

@sessionka (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=5681) This is slightly random, but out of curiosity, when you changed your dates on your reservation, did you get an additional confirmation email of the change or anything? I'm a bit curious so as to update the guide with that info.

@Iris (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1256) I did get a confirmation email of the change and when I check my reservation from the original email, it reflects the additional dates.

Thank you so much for the information! I forgot to mention that I saw MGH being available from Saturday - Monday on booking.com and Expedia but with the crazy $1,000+ fee. I'll share the info with my roommates. Greatly appreciate this!

Where are you seeing the availability? If it's OnPeak, have you tried doing it online like sessionka said? Though as Sam said, they're only seeing Sunday availability.

MGH won't be able to help you directly with an OnPeak reservation. Reservation information doesn't go to the actual hotels until 1-2 weeks pre-convention. So, until then only OP can help you.

Sam mentioned this, you can do bookend dates in a separate reservation(s) directly through the hotel, sometimes depending on the nights you can get better rates too than the con rate for certain nights. Ideally, make sure to book the same type of room you have through your OP one (guests, beds, etc.) When the reservations transfer, you can then call them and ask if they can combine the reservations/note in them that they're basically for a single stay. They may or may not do a full combination.

When you check-in to MGH then, you also tell them about it and request to stay in the same room throughout the duration of your stay. Then you can discuss if you need to do anything additional due to the multiple reservations (like call the desk to confirm or something or go down to check-in briefly.) Many people on the forum who have longer stays do this basically yearly and it's almost always successful. I haven't done it personally, but maybe one of the people who have can chime in on this. It's escaping me who usually does this...

Edit: Someone mentioned resort/destination fees. Sometimes those are waived for SDCC lotto reservations, sometimes they are not and are still charged on check-out. If I'm not remembering incorrectly, I'm pretty sure OP has somewhere verbiage about how there may be extra hotel specific fees that you will pay when you arrive. So that may or may not be an extra cost when booking directly.

Edit 2: I'm attempting to find the verbiage about the extra resort/destination fees and I can't find it on the current OP emails, reservation, etc. so they may have removed it. But I'm like 90% certain they used to have something as to that affect, but very vague.

Ah yes, those are rooms that are technically outside of the block of rooms reserved/contracted by CCI for SDCC that the hotel is able to book outside of OnPeak. So they aren't beholden to OP/SDCC nightly rates and don't affect your OP reservation beyond the bookend reservation(s) method mentioned before.

No problem!

Edit: Additionally, keep checking your OP reservation page/this thread to see if you can add the days. As people cancel/change their reservations, the nights you need may become available. You just need to be vigilant.

FYI I originally booked at omni hotel without convention rates last year in case I didn't get a hotel with convention rates. They emailed me this week that regardless of what my original reservation was, they will be charging a 3 night deposit fee that will be non-refundable. They said it's because of comic-con with the huge demand and supply they want to make sure those rooms would be used. Originally my reservation was refundable up until 7/17 with no deposit being taken out of. So if Omni is doing that other hotels may follow suit. Omni's deadline to cancel without card being charged was 5/20 without convention rate prices.

Omni's deadline to cancel without card being charged was 5/20 without convention rate prices.

This seems to happen every year, not specifically the Omni. I've had it happen with back-up hotels at least two separate years too. I believe one was The Keating? They suddenly try to charge cards or impose a deposit deadline etc. I can understand it in a way, but it is supremely annoying.

I always try to keep copies of cancellation policies and such at the time of booking and when cancelling and whatnot just in case something goes wrong. It wasn't for SDCC time, but a gaming event in Atlanta, where a hotel tried to charge my card for a no-show on a hotel reservation I'd cancelled well in advance and within the free cancellation/refund deadline when I decided to go with something else. I ended up having to dispute the charge iirc and sent over the cancellation policy for the booking and confirmation of cancellation.

Edit: iirc with The Keating they told me in an email that ALL reservations were now non-cancellable, regardless of cancellation policy on booking. They didn't give a time frame for canceling before it would go into effect or anything. I think they also attempted to charge a deposit after the email came through, but the card happened to have had an issue and was replaced with a new one a few months prior, so the charge didn't go through. I ended up canceling same day (that was probably their goal, but I also had another option for accommodations and I wasn't going to keep a potentially problem back-up any longer.) Ended up not having an issue with it at least.

I think its annoying that hotels do that. Like if I have an original reservation with the email and what it entails they should honor that. It is shady that the hotel will email separately and assume your stay is because of comic con. Like what happens if my email went to spam. I would have had no idea my card would be getting charged like that. I think they forgot to block out those dates ahead of time and are now covering up their mistakes. I guess I should be happy that they waited after 2 rounds of hotel apocalypse before charging. Would have been better if they did it closer to the stay in July.

OnPeak is a strange animal.  In the forest of hotels, no one I know of has ever captured the elusive Pendry hotel, though many have tried.  The Pendry has finally been banished from the forest, perhaps never to be seen again on the OnPeak list of hotels.   8)

Glad that's its off the list. Veterans will know after the first year that no one gets it, newbies will pick it thinking it's close by as a pick. Hence it's a wasted pick on everyone's list. Glad this year they said you can do up to 12 downtown hotels. Still didn't get one from the email, but thanks to a member I did get a room at the MGH, which I've been staying for the past two years.

Even though I don't need it (have the hotel I want) I have access to the waitlist.  I'm assuming others have it as well.  I got it when I didn't put in a reservation for a hotel I requested that came up for me in the 2nd round.

FYI,
 I would avoid omni hotel cuz of their horrible customer service. I emailed that manager telling him that I am going to cancel my reservation since of the email he sent out to guests with their non-refundable rates for 3 nights. I told him that I now I only needed wed to Thursday so I canceled the reservation (since I got a comic con rate at another hotel for the other dates). He reinstates my reservation and charges me for wed checkin and thurs check out and its a NON-REFUNDABLE rate which he didn't even mention. My original non-comic con rate was refundable. My credit card now has a pending charge.

I call and speak with reservations and they are trying to talk me into staying, and I'm like nope I want my money back. She calls front desk and they are like we can refund you. Reservations still wants me to stay and asks front desk to modify the rate. Front desk is like nope. I'm like nope I don't want to stay either with your changing rates and fees. Reservations still wants to talk and front desk disconnects the call.

Seriously that is a messed up customer service experience. I don't think I will ever stay at omni on this property. I really should email their corporate office saying that this location is changing rates out of the blue. Like I feel bad if someone booked that wasn't attending and their like why should I be punished for these rates because of the overlap in dates.

If you don't get anywhere, you can always go the nuclear option and start a chargeback. Be sure to have documentation and stuff ready to send to the credit card company to prove your side. Before doing so I hope you can resolve your issue via other means, because a chargeback I think could lead to other consequences from them.

This is one of the reasons why I try to avoid getting housing that isn't through SDCC. Our group has been burnt once by Airbnb (cancelled 1 month before the con, relisted at 2x the price), and honestly hotels try to nickel and dime you when it comes to big events like these. I'd honestly stay at a mission valley hotel via early bird (with a shuttle and everything) than to pay for a downtown hotel outside of the con.

If push comes to shove, I'd do what @quantumslip (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1243) mentioned and do a chargeback.

Yea I think its somewhere around $29-35 for downtown hotels in the low $300/night range. Totally worth it (at least for me) to switch from a hotel that is downtown but not super close (20 min walk, 16 min shuttle, 14 min trolley ride) to a hotel that is in the Gaslamp and only an 8 minute walk from the convention center. Even more since our original hotel was on Shelter Island.

So frustrating, soul crushing, annoying that I was either driving, sleeping or just could not get to a keyboard in time to grab a Manchester Grand Hyatt room when there were more available, and now I see the hotel still has plenty of rooms, but only if one is willing to spend $1300-1400 per night.  That hotel never gets more than $315 the rest of the year, and if they are going to participate in the lottery, then they should go all in.  It's just so cruel.

EVERY hotel keeps high end rooms available if you have enough cash.  Those have been available at any time over the last year at that price they just wait for some one desperate enough or for whom money doesn't matter.

On the flip side, and this might not make you feel better, they take a risk holding out rooms from the lottery.  There's no guarantee they will get someone to rent rooms at that rate.  While the close hotels are pretty booked up right now, there is still plenty of inventory both 'downtown' and further out.

If I remember correctly from 2019, these are the same rooms that a couple days before the con, go up on onpeak for like $900 a night.

Yes, I noticed that as well. It was on the lottery list, then nowhere to be found on the OnPeak hotels...not even as 'unavailable'. I wonder if they overbooked, and are hoping some people just cancel so they can fulfill the reservations they already have.

 I didn't even see more rooms go live for Manchester when I saw the link go live on twitter. I've been watching it for the past week and I only see days before the con available not anything during. In addition, it was for 1 bed and single occupancy that I kept seeing.

Don't give up hope on the Manchester.  The deadline for deposit refunds is May 31, so some may yet open up then and even after.  We saw that the last time there was a hotel sale.

It's probably gone now, but yes, like right across the street. I actually find this grouping of hotels pretty easy to get in and out of. The MMM was disappointing so I've preferred  these. I opted for springhill for the breakfast option.

@jnyama (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=4669)    Have not seen a specific date for that, but I see on my confirmation that changes are to be made through OnPeak on or before July 7.  Thinking the site will be open until then.

Right now, the worst case is the Westgate, which is an easy walk, and you can always stagger hotels to get better ones (saw the Hilton available for Saturday only, for instance). Shouldn't have been an issue cancelling.

Been thinking that this is a bit different from prior years. Figure folk may be keeping what they have because everyone is coming! Or...maybe the hotels have put fewer rooms into the lottery, hoping folk will pay higher prices.

Yeah, I'm really confused as to what people are looking at. In prior years at this time, all we had was Mission Valley stuff constantly up and even stuff like the Coronado hotels would only pop up briefly. Even having the Republic and the Wyndam currently available for all days is unprecedented, much less me being able to pull a choice of multiple Gaslamp hotels casually in the last couple of days.
Title: Re: SDCC 2022 Hotel Discussion

Hotel Republic is nice and three blocks from the trolley.

In the past, there would be NO hotels downtown at this point. I think attendance will be lower due to Covid,which is fine with me.

I think in 2019 OnPeak collected rooms that studios/people would give back and would release a bunch at a time. I think that allows people to get a full stay more easily.  But as with OnPeak, who knows?

For the MGH, must be some of those $1500 a night ones they kept outside of onpeak hoping people would be desperate enough.
The Bayfront and MMM still have rooms so it's possible we will see them on onpeak as hotels try and get rid of too many rooms they kept.

I think we may be witnessing a hotel strategy change because of the pandemic.  In 2014 I really wanted to stay at MMM, so we upped our budget and got a room there.  I think it was almost $600.00 a night.   I saw all the hotels still had rooms, but the rates were crazy high that year right before Con.  With revenues down during the height of the pandemic, I think all of the hotels will have goals of completely full occupancy.  Several other downtown hotels showed up this evening.  Hopefully this pattern will continue for all who hope to stay DT.

I just checked the Bayfront's website and their rates are $2094 to $2867 a night for con dates! I am pretty sure that's the highest rates I've seen of any of the hotels.

In case anyone is a Marriott Bonvoy member and is staying at a Marriott, earlier this week I got an email that was 20% off all e gift cards, so you might be able to use it to buy a gift card to reduce the actual cost of your hotel room.

That's potentially a great discount for those staying at Marriott!

I see info about that online but I think you need to be one of the ones that got that email I think, looks like a customized link per customer and it expires end of today
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
  Also I think I turned off all emails anyway due to avoiding email floods, guess that goes against me this time  ;D


Edit: The way the website looks, you can actually send the gift card to someone else (in fact that's the way gift cards are normally intended to be used) (https://wwws-usa2.givex.com/cws4.0/marriottprcom/e-gifts/). So one person could buy it for someone else and get paid back if they wanted to coordinate that.

what kind of room? Your able to transfer to someone else without losing deposit. The person your transfering room to would pay u the deposit, and youd call onpeak, and give onpeak the persons name & email and theyd make note in system and then youd give the person the reservation ID and when person calls onpeak onpeak changes all the info

It's a 1 bed double occupancy $325 a night 21-24 (still trying to add that Wednesday) not sure what room type it is like a studio or suite or something.

Nevertheless thanks for the info. I honestly had no idea about this.

I saw that there were double beds at MMM (which I really want), and I have a room with a single bed. I went to OnPeak to change the room, but even though doubles show on their page, the option isn’t available in my existing reservation. So I tried to call OnPeak, but of course they closed at 4:30pm Central Time until Monday… Ah well.

Fingers crossed for a sofa bed. Or - worst case scenario - I’ll toss an air mattress in my trunk when I drive down from LA.

I think so. A friend of a friend who works at one of the big 5 said they usually keep rooms to have availability for their business class folks (we all know the hotels really keep them hoping people going to the con will pay big bucks). As it gets closer to the con and in order to sell all rooms they will likely be releasing them bit by bit.
I think this is year will be the odd one out because not as many people will be going including those who despite not having badges still go and those who refunded their badges.

I doubt we’ll b able to tell the difference. Think they posted about attendance records one year of 14 or 15 was 180k and since then it’s been 130-140k. Only time seems can tell is preview night of some years seems more crowded than other years and same for Sundays floor

I would like to know the answer to this too. I have a room but I have friends that are further out. Based on reading of the room rates terms and conditions the text it makes it sound like one could switch hotels without losing their deposit, but in practice it doesn't seem like that. Is this something that you may have to call in? Would make it kind of difficult especially if the room is in high demand. Not sure if this is something I would want to go back to fix after the fact.

It's not on the shuttle route, but according to the map, it looks like it's close to Best Western Plus Bayside Inn, which is on the route.

Post by: peperryvt on June 26, 2022, 10:30:04 AM
I have a Studio Suite at the Gaslamp Plaza Suites for 7/17-24 that I'm trying to rent.  If I don't get some interest soon I'll have to turn it over to them to rent for me.  I've done that in the past.  They charge more than twice as much as I'm asking, but after fees and their cut I get about same or slightly less than renting it myself.

Is anyone interested in a Gaslamp district room that sleeps 4 for $1500 (all in cost, no resort fees or taxes added) for the full week of Comic Con?  The room has a partial kitchen, free wifi, and free breakfast every day.

Finally remembered to call and ask before they closed for the day.  They said at this point, if you cancel, switch, or otherwise modify your reservation you lose both the deposit and your booking fee unless you end up staying at least 2 nights at your original hotel.  They also said that they expect the rooms to be sent back to the hotels by 7/7, although some may go earlier or later.

1). I think somewhere I saw the target was the 9th
2). Usually the next year’s dates are announced at the show.  But most hotels don’t do reservations more than 50 weeks out.  So that wouldn’t work.

You can actually attach the loyalty program now if they haven't sent over the info yet (YMMV if they already did); there should be a field in onpeak to enter this (frequent guest number).

You had to add the Omni Select Guest loyalty number when you entered your credit card.
The hotel confirmation number should eventually show up in your Reservation Details in your onPeak online confirmation.
When logged in to the onPeak site, click on Folio, and then View Confirmation.

I just checked and no joy

@Jim Watari (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1237) Nothing here, either.

Does anyone know that once after on peak transfers hotel reservations to our specific hotel, would we be able to cancel and get all of our money back? I know when reservations were tied to on peak the answer was no up until that specific deadline? Also once it shows up, will it let you add more dates with the comic con rate?

I asked one hotel (Holiday Inn Bayside) when I was calling to ask about availability after the On Peak sales end, and they were unable to make a statement on whether the rate would go up or not...but the impression I got was that the rooms would go back into their regular inventory and would be priced at the non-sale rate.

My reservation on the Hilton site says "Cancellation Policy: Free cancellation before 11:59 PM local hotel time on 14 Jul 2022. " I don't know if that means I would get all my money back or not...it kind of sounds like I would but I would always call and check with the hotel before canceling!
It is allowing me to "edit stay" to add more dates but when I click that the rates are very high(not OnPeak rates).

And I'm betting that non sale rate is higher.  Already some down town hotels that have inventory outside of on-peak are quoting higher rates than the on peak rate.

My first year (2015) as I was checking into my Shelter Island hotel, a couple made a reservation at the desk.  The rate they were quoted was $100 more per day than mine.

Post by: Transmute Jun on July 06, 2022, 07:43:23 AM
Sefton is right. While we are laughing at these prices (because we have in-block rooms), those hotels have been listing rooms for over $1,000 per night, so this is a decrease.

onPeak states one week before for the Omni Hotel. It may be different for others, but the reservations are usually transferred earlier than they say.

eta:  Looking at my confirmation, the Changes Policy lists 7/7/2022 as the final day onPeak can make changes. So maybe tomorrow for the Omni?

Quote
Changes Policy
If you need to make any changes or cancellations to your reservation on or before 07/07/2022, make your changes online or call (877) 552-6642. Changes or cancellations to your reservation after this date must be made directly with Omni San Diego Hotel at 1-619-231-6664. All changes are based on availability.

It looks like it... I have emails from OnPeak about my reservation on 7/3/19 and 7/12/18. The 2018 one includes the hotel confirmation number, but the 2019 one is just a recap of the reservation and doesn't mention the trasnfer to the hotel itself.

Did anyone who have MGH get theirs transferred over yet to their account? I haven't heard anything but I don't think on peak added my rewards member. I'm debating about adding a pre-stay at a Hilton, but their cancelation says free cancelation up until a certain date. I originally was thinking it meant I would get my amount back up until that date, but my friend said no. So we were going at it back and forth. What do you all think if a reservation has free cancelation

When booking hotels right now on comic con's website beware of the free cancelation date. It's conflicting dates. On the main screen it says cancel by July 18, but for one of the hotels, if you view the hotel policy it is the 17th on further details. I also recommend you play around with prices. Take a look at the hotel's website and compare it with on peak. After I clicked the one with pay at hotel stay I noticed it's even more expensive than booking from the original website.

I wasn't charged last night. So I called Omni this morning they couldn't find my reservation, and told me to call On Peak. On Peak is closed until Monday, called back to Omni and they said that group reservaiton would call me back monday. I did use a debit card since it was one of those omni reservation posted grab it in 30 seconds . Didn't realize we were going to be charged the whole amount today so we hadn't moved anyting to savings . So now my anxiety brain is going to be" I know we are homeless all weekend."  Omni why do I do this?

Omni warned people who booked not thru the comic con they were gonna get charged in email if u booked with them separately. Because onpeak transferred info to omni they probably charged your card automatically.  I wouldn't be surprised if they did that. Yet to do it without notice you can call your card to dispute and contact on peak as well. Yet they might not have control anymore wants it gets transferred

The Marriot Marquis Marine (MMM) is currently on the open sale for $623 a night 1 King Bed. Not sure if that fits your needs, but at this very last-minute stage you may not have much luck at getting a con-rat transfer.

I have to check my card to see if Bayfront charged me or not. It's confusing cause it says 0 for payment after the initial money down. I wanted to know the balance but subtracted it myself.

Is anyone still looking for a hotel room to share? I posted on the thread but this is the only thread people are posting on so if you still need a room share head to the other thread.

OK, this is kind of bizarre and a little funny, but I just called the MGH to check on my reservation, which has not yet shown up in my account. The operator who answered explained that there is ONE GUY there who is working on transferring the reservations one at a time to the hotel. She suggested that I email him: [email protected] I'm going to email him now--I sure hope I wrote down his email address correctly.

Update: Armando rocks! He emailed me back with my hotel confirmation number a couple of hours later.

Interesting when I called Hyatt to see when on peak had open availability and it's the same rate as general to see if they will honor the comic con rate since I'm staying there for the next few days. They said my reservation was from Expedia. I'm like no I booked directly with on peak so it's weird if there saying that it's Expedia. So in on peak working with Expedia then?

Mine did not. I didn't receive it until I emailed Armando at the MGH (see my slightly earlier post). I first tried to call the MGH directly (which is how other people have gotten their confirmation numbers), but the wait time for someone who could help with reservations was "more than 10 minutes." I also tried the chat feature on the Hyatt site, but that's useless because those guys don't know anything about specific hotels and had never heard of OnPeak. Finally, I called the MGH again and entered 7 to get an operator, and she told me to email Armando. He seems to be the only person who is transferring the OnPeak reservations to the hotel, but he replied within a couple of hours with my confirmation number. He also added my Hyatt rewards number to my reservation and changed my roommate's name for me.

But this was annoying to see "Please note - A daily destination fee of USD 35 plus tax will be added to the room rate. The fee includes bike rental, food and beverage credit and more."

Thanks! I am seeing it there this morning. Looks like I have to call, too (but because it's not under my name). Did you put it in when you added your cc info in On Peak?

I am able to look it up, which is a big relief! I will try not to check it a million more times before next week LOL
Yes, I added my select guest number when I put the deposit down, but had to call the hotel to get the reservation added to my account,.

Technically I can add my stay to my Marriott account online, but the system doesn't allow it until after the stay is complete.  I'm ok with that, but sometimes it can be done at check in, so I'll see if that's possible.

@Transmute Jun (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=314) .  Can you tell me how you got your stay added to your account?

@sessionka (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=5681)   When I booked with Onpeak, I gave them my frequent guest number. When they transferred the reservation to MMM, it was then atatched to my Bonvoy account, and showed up when I logged into Bonvoy.

I missed that, but then again, I didn't do the original booking, as I got my room thru the exchange, so it may not have been an option for me.

Whew - got everything sorted. Adding my number transferred the reservation to me, so the address that was entered incorrectly (wrong city, for some reason, and a bogus zip code) was cleared up as a result.

I am letting out a huge sigh of relief!

Hi,

I did the same, I called the hotel, and stated to confirm my reservation but also I forgot to add my Marriott Bonvoy number, which they added for me.

Logged into my Marriot Bonvoy account , and poof ! it was now loaded in. :)

OK, this is kind of bizarre and a little funny, but I just called the MGH to check on my reservation, which has not yet shown up in my account. The operator who answered explained that there is ONE GUY there who is working on transferring the reservations one at a time to the hotel. She suggested that I email him: [email protected] I'm going to email him now--I sure hope I wrote down his email address correctly.

Update: Armando rocks! He emailed me back with my hotel confirmation number a couple of hours later.

Your lucky armando has replied back. Ive emailed him and haven't heard back in a few days. Tomorrow is the last day to cancel at MGH for a full refund. So im glad their not following onpeak with no refunds at all

So it's my first time staying at MMM, I looked up my reservation in the Marriott Bonvoy app and the total cost is $140 more than the total from my Onpeak booking. The $140 extra is a $35 per night resort fee.
Is this normal in years past?
Thanks

Not sure if the OnPeak Hotel Desk is open in Sails, can you try that? Badge pickup hours open until 5pm.

As a proud union member (of a different union) I really appreciate that!! I understand those with room reservations can't do anything, but cancelling other activities is awesome and I appreciate people who see it as something other than a personal inconvenience to themselves. ^5!!

I'll be checking in tomorrow for HBF. I guess I'll warn my friends who won't know about it to expect it. Like Mel said, we're kind of locked into our hotel reservation and there isn't terribly much to do about that unfortunately at this stage in the event even though I'd prefer to not cross a picket line when possible.

Especially since I lost count of how many times the Bayfront replaced my missing,lost, or forgotten keycard d. My only complaints for Hilton Bayfront ,well outside of the one day housekeeping strike, was the digital key wouldn’t work for elevator lkike it said it would, and I couldn’t get a late check out.

Oh ok! I just didn't want to leave a long rant of a post lol. It's was just generally a bad experience at that hotel where the only good thing I can say about the hotel was that it was close to the con center. I can share a few highlights.
It started even before I checked in. I drove there and it was an adventure to get to valet. They didn't believe me that i was staying there. I had my email, reservation but i figured they were just being strict.Than upon check in they wanted to charge $25 a day for wifi and amenities like the pool, gym, 207 lounge etc. All those amenities are closed because some celebrities are staying there and some of those have been reserved for parties. I tild her that too and front desk agent just laughed. I have their rewards program and the front desk agent said she never heard of the program when i mentioned it to her. Her manager came and said the rewards program doesn't do anything . I am like ok well thanks for letting me know. Also we weren't allowed to wait in the lobby. I was waiting for a friend for dinner and the hotel staff said I can't wait in the lobby and sent me to my room. She says go back upstairs or wait outside! I've never stayed at a hotel where the lobby is forbidden to wait in. Day 2 I was only allowed to use 1 elevator because the other 2 were just for celebrities. I thought ok whatever but than the day of EW party they wouldn't me use any of the elevators to get to my room on the 7th floor. They told me to go to the other end of the hotel and use those or take the stairs. When I tried to take the car out they said they weren't taking valet calls because of the party. So I paid 50 a night to have my car trapped behind celebrities cars. Checkout time came and I asked for bell service and no one came. Called again and the guy said oh we forgot we are busy. At this point I just want to leave and get my car from valet but plot twist they aren't 0taking valet calls. So me and my group go downstairs finally get a guy to find our car. 3 trips up and down to get our stuff in the car. I should mentioned that I tried to checked out like 5 times and never got my bill. I finally get a txt 3 hours later saying I checked out. I will never stay at the Hardrock again. I will say that most people staying there were industry people but the hotel needs to decide if they want to be a celebrity hotel like The Pendry or a half assed hotel experience for us regular folks.
Edit to add that the hotel was insanely noisy at all times of the day! You know your hotel stay was bad when the noise level wasn't even the worst thing about the stay. And l never received my hotel folio. I emailed them already.

I probably should have said something to them but i just didn't want to be that person. I tried to be understanding but my patience only went so far. I just don't like the feeling of being treated like this. I hope my experience will help and save others from going through this in the future.

I’ve stayed there a few times and it’s always like that. I was there again this year and I’m over it, won’t be going back. No one was rude to me but that’s probably only bc I have stayed there enough to “know my place” and follow their rules. It doesn’t feel nice to be treated that way. There are a lot of other hotels, several just as close to the convention center, and all of them offer  better amenities to con goers, I’ll be giving them my business instead.

I was looking for the right words but your right I think I didn't "know my place". I also didn't do enough research about others past experiences like I normally would have because this was my first con since the pandemic. I've stayed at MMM, MGH, courtyard marriott and Westin, they were all good experiences (except the courtyard was haunted but thats for another day). I guess I am shocked how this hotel being of moderate quality can get away with treating people like this (their rooms are dated and were probably new 20 years ago). I now at least know it wasn't just me. Thank you for sharing your experience.

I've always thought the noise level was the top reason to avoid the Hard Rock, but it seems your experience reinforced that it wasn't the right pick for my Con experience. I'm sorry you had to go through all of that! I've stayed at the MGH past years, and this year at the Hilton Gaslamp. Both had their pros and cons, but definitely were stays I'd easily recommend to most people. Hard Rock seems like a coin-flip at this rate.

I'm sorry you had to go through that, that's horrible :(
I actually had a good experience there everyone was nice to me I even got free drinks at both bars met some cool ppl,
I was able to use all elevators, and yeah the noise was kinda bad in the morning but I just put headphones on.
I saw some ppl just hanging out in the lobby at a table charging their phones idk why they told you to go to your room that sux.
I was walking to my room late when some ppl from the EW party invited me to an after party that was nice and fun!
Again I'm sorry you had a bad time there :(

No. One of my volunteer assignments was holding a sign that said limited signings and Horton. I asked my supervisor about it, and he said there wasn't anything there and they were just using old signs. Someone asked me who "Horton" was.

I guess I am shocked how this hotel being of moderate quality can get away with treating people like this (their rooms are dated and were probably new 20 years ago). I now at least know it wasn't just me. Thank you for sharing your experience.

It certainly wasn’t just you. While not rude, I found them to be quite unhelpful and disorganized when I stayed there.  I can certainly see the celeb appeal, but I’d rather stay at the Marriott and HBF.

Now that I've had time to reflect, I just chalk up the whole thing as a learning experience albeit a not so pleasant one. I still had fun at the con and it was cool to be in elevators with celebs(for like 5 mins) but like you,I would prefer the MMM or other better hotels and a nice hotel stay. Hopefully my experience can help others in the future.

This is a little early, but the Horton Grand has rooms available for the SDCC dates next year. Booking through Hotels.com allows you to pay at the hotel as well, no pre-pay needed.
The MGH has all room types available for 2023 but its pricey at $1700 a night. Just throwing that out there.

I stayed there a few years ago but I had a friend stay there this year and she was charged $15 to replace her misplaced key card

Yup that happened to me on Saturday night. I had a complete melt down. Broke down and cried. It wasn’t so much about the dang money it had to do with not being able to use the elevator. I have issues walking and bad knees so all I wanted to do was just go to my room and finish working. I had been so excited to stay at the Hard Rock but no way in Hades will I ever stay there again. I was exhausted from doing press rooms so it was the last straw with losing my key. I had been in the same press rooms as some of the celebs so I was tired of being treated as not worthy in HR’s eyes to use the same elevator as they were using. (Yah I know petty) At least a few guards took pity on me when they saw the ADA sticker on my badge and would let me use it.

The biggest issue that I had was the actual room I was assigned. Mind you I was super happy with the location. Arrived on Monday way ahead of the crowds. The room I was given was on the second floor #230. It was directly above the loading dock. Not an issue until preview night all the way through Saturday. Trucks would unload directly under us and outside on the street from 8 pm through 3 am sometimes. I knew the hotel would be noisy but this was way too much. The bed was super comfy but it was hard to stay asleep. The hallway outside our room also was a main way for the staff to cut through so we could hear the security detail radios at 4:59 am every day of the con. I will write a review on the hotel thread soon. Just wanted to chime in and give a warning to any that might get stuck with the same room we had. It is definitely a party hotel and they do value the celebrities. Just wish they also valued those of us who are actually paying for the room and not a studio with deep pockets. Location was great so that was a positive.

That is pretty stinky. Never been charged for a key replacement at other hotels. I wonder if it’s because you have to show your key to get in, they’re trying to dissuade you from selling your key or having more people in your room but $15 isn’t really a barrier to either. Idk.

Two things...

1.  I hope you do put your review of the Hard Rock on the hotel review thread

2.  Do we have dates for next year.  I want to see what MMM is charging.   :)

Next years dates are one day shifted from this year (starting 7/19 for preview night, ending sunday 7/23).

Also hot tip for people who's blackout shades don't fully close and need complete darkness for sleep (like my vampire of a wife). Take one of the pants hangers that are almost always provided in hotels and use it to clip the blinds closed. We've done it multiple years and it's a really good tip.

I am so sorry you had to go through all that. I feel your pain. It's just a horrible feeling being treated as lesser. I feel like the Hardrock should just be like the Pendry and only be for industry people.

I will definitely leave a review, I just want to make sure I leave one that is helpful. I also contacted the hotel and I am waiting for a reply.
The dates for 2023 are July 20-23 with preview night on July 19th.

I do this all the time, too!! I said once, "if only I had a clip", and a light bulb went off over DH's head, and he came out with one of the hangers. That is a great tip - thanks for sharing it!
