2013 Official Hotel Give/Trade Thread
« on: February 27, 2013, 09:52:03 AM »
No clue how this process will work.

I assume you log in to your reservation, update the names and then make your 2 night deposit to hold. If anyone has done this before or has insight, please share!

Otherwise, if you have an extra reservation and want to give it away or if you're looking to obtain something on your preference list, post and see if someone can help you out!

Good luck!

HOW TO GIVE AWAY RESERVATION:

1) Click link provided in email
2) Enter information as requested (last name, reservation # and reservation phone #)
3) Click Reservation Change
4) Update reservation names, dates, etc
5) Enter Payment info

(will update with more specifics once the link allows me back in - sporadic)

--------------------------------------------------------------

LIST OF HOTEL RESERVATIONS FOR TRADE/GIVING AWAY:

  • Post the name of the hotel and the dates of the reservation.  We'll start up a list for potential trades between forum members. 
  • If you are interested in a particular reservation, contact the person via PM and work out the details.
  • We will link the person's post offering the hotel for easy accessibility.  To be fair, please use a "first-come, first-served" system when you get people PMing or e-mailing you to take your offer.
  • If you max out the PM limit, you can click the little envelope button under the person's "Join Date" and avatar picture in the post.  The PM limit is supposed reset every hour, but if you used up your PMs for that hour, I recommend using the e-mail system on the forums.
  • As usual, the moderators and administrators at the Friends of CCI Forum are not responsible for the reservation offer.  It is between you and the party of interest.
  • To protect yourself, remember to NEVER give your personal financial information in this thread!

To simplify the info for easy-viewing, the template in this post will be as follows:

Name of the Hotel (The list of hotels will be alphabetized as well!)
Name of person giving away the reservation (original dates of reservation, # of beds, # of people)     *additional notes*
We will also link the person's original offer as reference. 

*NOTE: THE DETAILS IN THE RESERVATION CAN BE MODIFIED.  Once the reservation has been "transferred" to your name, you can change the dates and number of people, if necessary.  Availability is subject to each individual hotel.


If the entry is crossed out, then the offer has been taken. (After a few weeks or so, we will remove the entry from the list.) 

Please note that if there are two entries for one person, it means that he/she has TWO SEPARATE reservations at the hotel.

Without much ado, here is the list!

We chose 4 hotels downtown and 2 hotels in Mission Valley.  If we get stuck in Mission valley, help getting a room downtown would be appreciated.  Likewise, if we end up with 2 downtown, toooootally willing to swap it over.  The four we are really rooting for are the Bristol Hotel, the Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown, Best Western Bayside Inn and Four Points by Sheraton.

My sister and I both requested all downtown hotels, so if we get anything good we'll happily offer up whatever we're not using. (And if we don't get anything, I'll be here begging for whatever downtown scraps there are).

This is a great idea! Our group had no luck last year with the hotel lottery but hoping this year will be different. Definitely willing to help out if we do wind up with an extra room!

Spoke w/ Heather from TP. She said the transfer process is "really easy."

When you receive the confirmation, it'll have a link for you to go in and fill out your info and leave a credit card. You can either fill the info out yourself or you can provide the link to whoever is taking over the room for them to go in and update it to their info and put down a credit card.

She seemed very confident that it wouldn't be difficult to transfer the reservation. Once the confirmation emails start coming out, I'll attempt to do so and will update the first post w/ instructions on how to do a transfer (so that you don't lose it!) or if someone else figures it out before then and wants to share the easy way to do it, it'd be appreciated!

Could just list what you have, and give the link to the first PM you get or whatever.
Or beg for a reservation and whoever has an extra can PM the reservation link to them.

Ill probably be begging as I misclicked the number of rooms and it wouldn't let me continue till I set it back to 1 room and reentered the names =(. I think i was done by 9:08

It also depends on the number of days reserved right?

As far as I know and remember, you can change that in the reservation when you go to pay.

I'll be happy to participate in a trade if I can help someone out. Of course, I could be looking for a room myself.
