I think you nailed it, left over from an idea they were going to do, then realized it was too much work.  Or CCI asks them to collect it so they can determine the % of badge holders trying for rooms?

So it's like...  the appendix or the tailbone of the form.  It had a use at some point, but it no longer does and it's just... hangin around.

I'm sorry I'm tired and ill and weird toda  ;D

my initial thought was that this was going to be a clusterf*ck. Too many people vying for few resources.


Actually (IMO), the 'few resources' are really what I call "The Big 6"

Hilton Bay Front
MMM
MGH
Hard Rock
Omni
Marriott Gas Lamp

I don't stress over hotels, because I know worst case scenario (and I don't consider it horrible), I'll get a non-downtown hotel on the shuttle route.  There are rooms 'out there' up until almost the first day of the Con.  I did that my first year, and I was fine.

Possibly, we will never know unless someone at CCI decides to crack and tell us.  Do they make their employees sign NDA's?  I wouldn't be surprised if they do.

Their phone reps don't seem to be held to secrecy.  But they also don't seem to know what's going on most of the time.  Calling them is always fun and interesting.  Sometimes they reveal more than they should, and sometimes they don't even know enough to reveal anything of value.   :'(  If we knew someone who worked more the backend of things, that'd be someone whose brain I'd love to pick for info.

NCDS makes a good point: there was probably much more demand for badges because it is the 50th, but I don't think that will translate into a lot more demand for hotel rooms from non-badgeholders (no more than usual).

I love it when I make good points!

I did not know where else to put it. Also, we have to remember what is important before The Hotelpocalypse drives us crazy!
