uhhh....

I saw 'The Omni San Diego Hotel' on the Early Bird site.  I couldn't believe my eyes.  I actually tried to book, but I got an error.  I called On Peak, and they confirmed it was an error.

 ??? ??? >:(

I'm not having any luck posting the screen grab in the forum.  I did create an account in imgur, and I'm posting the link here.

That's definitely an Early Bird price.  When seeing that on the site, the thumbnail only said price TBD and then got an error note when clicking, before that hotel disappeared.

Edit: added Tapatalk version of that screengrab for viewing/discussion.

I can’t open up imgur on my work computer and the screen grab is too small on my phone, but that looks like $280 a night for the Omni? Definitely feels way too low for the general sale, but Omni as an early bird makes no sense either.

The real takeaway here is that I need a job as a hotel desk clerk so I can have dozens of con goers flirt with me.

Is it still there? I didn't see it when I went to the website.

Sounds like it disappeared.  Likely a mistake.  Wonder if anyone nabbed it before they took it down.  It's SUPER odd not just that a downtown hotel was there at all, but at such a low price.  Makes me wonder how that even happened.  What wire got crossed where.

You should have told them you were well-versed in Bird Law and made them give it to you, haha. ;)

I tried to book, but got an error on the last screen.   I called On Peak, and they said it was definitely an error and it was removed very soon after I got off the phone with them.

Last year the Omni was $279 for one bed and $289 for two beds.
I imagine that onPeak was just updating their database with new hotel data and forgot to exclude the Omni listing from the Early Bird sale.

Interesting.  Omni is currently listed at $305 per night on most sites for tonight ($287 discounted on one website).  Feels weird it'd be cheaper for OnPeak during SDCC.  But Omni is usually my 3rd or 4th on my list so I don't recall it off the top of my head like I do Bayfront ($400 for 4 people EEK!!).  Shoulda googled last year's list tho maybe haha.

We might need to put up a thread looking for a volunteer to teach us how to flirt to get better rooms.

Wait, I thought you were going to do that, and provide a helpful Google doc full of instructions... ?

I'm retired until I find a job that doesn't block google docs.  I mean you don't think I do my volunteer work on my free time do you?   >:D

It's all in the smile :D

Listen, I'm on to you guys. It's not the flirting--it's that there are nerds among us who have FINALLY PERFECTED THE JEDI HAND WAVE. I hereby humbly submit myself as Padawan to anyone looking for an apprentice.  ;D
