SDCC 2019 Room Sharing Thread
« on: November 28, 2018, 10:32:21 AM »
Welcome to the SDCC 2019 Room Sharing Thread!
 
It's that time again!

I will open up this thread sometime around the end of this year.

In the meantime, now is good opportunity to familiarize (or re-familiarize) yourself with the room sharing request guidelines in this first post! Isn't that neat?  ;p

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

Kindly follow this format.

Please don't post anywhere else on this site trying to get a roommate for San Diego Comic-Con.  ONLY POST HERE! 

Please post only ONCE in this thread (to be considerate of your fellow forum members and to avoid spamming the thread). 

Duplicate posts will be deleted without notice.  You have been warned.

Please note that this thread is for finding roommates for ROOM SHARING ONLY.


PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS THREAD FOR DISCUSSION.  PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS THREAD FOR HOTEL EXCHANGES OR OFFERS. 

In an effort to keep things organized and easy to read through, this is for room sharing requests only

Conversations in this thread may be deleted without warning.

Please edit/modify your post if the spaces in your room have been taken.

This is so that people can see which rooms are available and which aren't. 

You can also use the strike-through feature to indicate that your request is closed: [ s]text goes here[/ s]    

Remove the spaces, so it will look like this ==> text goes here



Please note that this thread is for finding roommates for ROOM SHARING ONLY.

This thread is NOT intended for making hotel requests.  It does not replace the hotel exchange in any way, shape, or form.  Please do not post here if you are looking to trade a hotel reservation or get a hotel reservation giveaway.

 
If you post in this thread, please be aware that this means you are saying that you WANT roommates at whatever hotel you end up with.  Provide details about yourself.  Include the description and preferences!

If you post in this thread, this means that you agree to have other forum members contact you via PM for the possibility of sharing a room together at Comic-Con 2019.

We're doing our best to help keep the forums organized for reading and discussing, but we need your help to do this.

Thank you for your understanding!



IDENTIFY THE TYPE OF REQUEST (Select one):

LOOKING FOR A ROOM SHARE (I want to share a room with someone.)

(or) 

LOOKING FOR ROOMMATES (I already booked a room and need roommates.)

Name: (This is optional; you can use your forum username instead)

Hotel Area/Name of Hotel: (What is your preferred hotel or area to stay in?)

Days: (Include which days.)

Price Per Night: (For those looking for roommates, YOU NEED TO BE UPFRONT ABOUT THE PRICE IN YOUR POST.  If you want to room share, what is your price range?)

Smoking/Drinking: (Yes or No)

Spaces: (If you're looking for a room share, how many people do you want to be in your room?  If you're looking for roommates, how many spaces are available in your room?  Don't forget to include yourself.)

Preferences and Description:

Age Preference of Roommates:

Gender Preference of Roommates: (Type in "all-male," "all-female," or "co-ed.")

Include a brief description about yourself: (Ex: I am a cosplayer, so I have props and other cosplay items that will take up a portion of the room.  I'm a morning person, so I like to wake up early to get ready for the day.  I prefer non-smoking roommates.)

Additional preferences for roommates: (Ex: I prefer someone who is organized and clean.)

NOTE: Do not add your phone number to your post.  To protect our forum members from potential phone scams, phone numbers will be removed without notice.



DISCLAIMER:

The forum administrators and moderators do not vet individuals that post here!  This thread was created with the intention to provide a designated venue that allows interested individuals to initiate contact with each other for the possibility of sharing a hotel room at San Diego Comic-Con.

Please use your best personal judgement and common sense, and as always, please proceed with caution when arranging any agreements (especially with strangers).  Discuss payment details and rooming expectations thoroughly.



Just a quick word about condo shares:

If you book the condo for a good price, you will find people to share the cost. 

Make sure you understand the *total cost.*  This includes taxes and cleaning fees.

You can create a post for condo sharing using the same format as above, but just type "CONDO RENTAL" or "LOOKING FOR CONDO ROOMMATES" at the top, instead of "looking for a room" or "looking for a roommate."  Replace any sections as necessary to describe the condo and explain the pricing costs.



HOW TO CONTACT SOMEONE FOR ROOM SHARES OR ROOMMATES

1. Go to the person's post in this thread.

2. Under the profile photo (or avatar), click on the icon that looks like this: or :

3. Fill out the "Subject" box with "Comic-Con Room Sharing."

4. Type in your message to the other person.  Don't forget to discuss details about the room share thoroughly before making agreements!
 

HOW TO EDIT YOUR POST ON THE FORUMS

1. Click on "Modify" at the top right corner area of your post.

2. Alternatively, you can click on the little paper and pencil icon on the bottom right area of your post.

3. Edit the text as necessary.

4. Click "Save."

5. That's it!  You have successfully edited your post.

LOOKING FOR A ROOM SHARE (I want to share a room with someone.)

UPDATE 05/17: Still have not found a room share, hoping still for a Downtown site, again willing to take a floor space if available.

Name: Chris

Hotel Area/Name of Hotel: Any Hotels in the Downtown/Gaslamp Area

Days: Wednesday, July 17th thru Monday, July 22nd

Price Per Night: 120/night, really don't want to get over 700 if I can help it.

Smoking/Drinking: I don't mind either, but I won't do either.

Spaces: Doesn't matter to me, willing to take a floor space.

Age Preference of Roommates: No Preferene

Gender Preference of Roommates: No Preference

Include a brief description about yourself: I'm 27, male, I do plan on doing a little cosplay, but otherwise I'm just trying to enjoy my second Con and make it a little nicer for myself by getting into a hotel room instead of a hostel. My priority is a space with A/C, and to store my luggage/swag. I keep things pretty tidy and I'm open to being as involved or as disassociated with you as a roommate, whichever you prefer. I'm coming in as a volunteer to SDCC so chances are I'll be sparsely in the room given everything there is to do.

LOOKING FOR A ROOM SHARE (I want to share a room with someone.)

Name: Lavinia & Deb

Hotel Area/Name of Hotel: Downtown area, with a great preference for the closest Hotels to the con site since i have some trouble walking great distance due to a little disability.

Days: Tue-Mon would be perfect, but i take anything i can get.

Price Per Night: Flexible. The usual rates of Hotelpocalypse are ok.

Smoking/Drinking: No smoking. I'm fine with a glass of alcohol.

Spaces: Preference of about 4 people

Preferences and Description: As long everyone is respectful, don't mind male or female

Age Preference of  Roommates: 18 - 81 :)

Gender Preference of Roommates: co-ed is fine.

Include a brief description about yourself: Looking for a room for a friend of mine and myself. She's American. I'm a 37 years old italian girl. This will be my 7th and probably last year of SDCC so i would like to both have fun and relax. I'm a cosplayer, but i'll bring just simple stuff, no props at all since bringing them from europe would be tricky. I like to explore the con and the sites around it. Love to walk the Gaslamp area after the con and grab something to eat with friends.
This would also be my 3rd year volunteering at SDCC.
I have a slight disability, as in I might need to rest every once in a while due to M S but i'm pretty ok.

Additional preferences for roommates: I'd love to meet new people that can turn out to be friends. It happened last year. Shared the room with 3 amazing girls and we're still in contact, so will love to find roommates that don't mind to chat after the day's done.

Name: Tom & Chris

Hotel Area/Name of Hotel: Top 5 Hotel, so Bayfront, MMM, MGH, Omni, Hard Rock. I personally have always wanted to stay at Bayfront or MMM but have never had the chance.

Days: Wed night through Saturday Night.

Price Per Night: Block rate is fine

Smoking/Drinking: No smoking. (Is smoking in hotel rooms even a thing?)

Spaces: 4 to the room max for a regular room

Preferences and Description: I'm not sure we have any?

Age Preference of Roommates: 18 - whatever

Gender Preference of Roommates: co-ed is fine.

Include a brief description about yourself: Looking for a top 5 hotel for myself and my friend. We are SDCC veterans, having gone every year this decade (I think?). Myself (Tom) is a highly collaborative con goer, always trying to make connections with people I meet at the Con. I've done the line camping for Sails Pavilion and even did a Saturday Hall H camp back in 2017. Chris is less collaborative in my experience and hangs out with our other friends a lot at the Con -- I go wherever I need to! I am always willing to help out friends and roommates get what they need at the Con if I can, and I consider my Con "expertise" to be above average. I'd be glad to make new friends and help people out!

Additional preferences for roommates: None?

LOOKING FOR A ROOM SHARE

Name: Brent H. and Bart C.

Hotel Area/Name of Hotel: Looking for something downtown -- the closer to the convention center, the better

Days: Arriving Wednesday 7/17, departing Sunday 7/21

Price Per Night: Max of $200 per night ($100 for each of us)

Smoking/Drinking: No smoking. Drinking fine, as long as it's not excessive and/or disruptive.

Spaces: No more than 4 people (including us)

Preferences and Description: bed for one of us, floor for the other

Age Preference of Roommates: 18+

Gender Preference of Roommates: No preference

Include a brief description about yourself: We're both journalists: we'll be onsite to shoot photos, conduct interviews and cover the big announcements in Hall H. Neither of us are loud, we travel fairly light, and we don't need a lot of space -- although a spot at the desk would be helpful for writing up articles or working on photos. We've done SDCC many times -- we generally leave early and get back late, with a quick stop to drop off gear in between, and we always try to be respectful of everyone else's schedules.

Additional preferences for roommates: Just be pleasant, clean (daily showers are a must) and organized.

LOOKING FOR A ROOM SHARE (I want to share a room with someone.)

Name: Dr. John Flynn (attending professional)

Hotel Area/Name of Hotel:  Near the Convention Center, the closer the better

Days: Wed thru Sunday

Price Per Night: Open

Smoking/Drinking: I don't drink or smoke

Spaces:  Looking for bed space, ideally no more than 3 or 4 people in the room

Preferences and Description:  Again, I do need bed space

Age Preference of Roommates:  I'm over 50, but I have no preference on age.

Gender Preference of Roommates: I'm male, but I have no preference on gender

Include a brief description about yourself:  I am an attending professional (SFWA and MWA author of 19 books) and cosplayer, so I will be up early and out on the exhibit hall, either signing my books or wearing several costumes.  I cosplay Doctor Strange often at CC.  I am not a late owl, so often back to the room by 9 or 10.  I may do one day in Hall H.  This will be my 18th CC.  I do not drink or smoke or do drugs.  I have a girlfriend at home in Florida, so I won't be bringing anyone back to the room.  I am over 50, and have been in fandom since I was 18.  I do have a bad back, so I must share a bed.  The days of sleeping on the floor have unfortunately long since past.  I have a badge from Wed thru Sun, so likely I will arrive on Wed and depart on Sun.  I have not gotten to the stage of booking my flight.  If you still have room space, please let me know.  Thanks. John

Additional preferences for roommates: I am organized and clean, and prefer to share a room with similar fans.

LOOKING FOR A ROOM SHARE (I want to share a room with someone.)

Name: Linda

Hotel Area/Name of Hotel: Preferably near downtown

Days: Wednesday - Sunday

Price Per Night: Negotiable (hoping for a room with 4 or more people for lower cost total though!)

Smoking/Drinking: (Yes or No): No

Spaces: 4 - 6

Preferences and Description: Mainly looking for a place nearby downtown for the 5 days of comic con. No preference other than that since I'll mainly be in the room at night for rest.

Age Preference of Roommates: No preference.

Gender Preference of Roommates: Co-ed is fine

Include a brief description about yourself: This will be my third time at comic-con. I got badges this year for most of the days, but am volunteering as well (2nd year volunteering). I usually cosplay at other conventions, but not for this one. I won't take up too much space since I won't be cosplaying.

Additional preferences for roommates: No preference, really. I'm easy going and welcoming to making new friends at sdcc :)

Please email me at [email protected] if you'd like to share a room.

As of July 7, this room share offer is still available
LOOKING FOR ROOMMATES (I already booked a room and need roommates.)

Name: Michael

Hotel Area/Name of Hotel: The Westgate Hotel. 1055 2nd Ave, San Diego, CA 92101
This is located Northeast of the Spreckels Theater (aka Conan Show) on the other side of Broadway

Days: Tuesday - Monday (6 nights)

Price Per Night: If 1 additional roommate, I am hoping to receive ~$500 total to share the cost, but flexible. If 2 additional roommates, then we split the bill.

Smoking/Drinking: No and No

Spaces: 1-2 spots on the floor or an air mattress. I was only able to get a 1 King room through OnPeak. The room is 400 sq ft and there should be plenty of floor space. My group consists of myself (44 year old father) and my 18 year old daughter. We are planning to share the bed. I am willing to ask about a roll-away and contribute to the extra cost, if it is available. Or we can bring an air mattress and just leave it behind. Target has some for under $50.

Age Preference of Roommates: 18+

Gender Preference of Roommates: Any is fine. LGBTQ is perfectly welcomed.

Include a brief description about yourself: This will be our 5th SDCC. We don't party or drink or smoke. We spend most of the day away from the hotel room and usually back at the room around 10pm. We are clean and respectful.

Additional preferences for roommates: The most important thing is that you are clean and respectful. We usually buy a few things but not too crazy (famous last words). If you need a lot of room for cosplay or purchases, no problem just keep it organized. We usually only get a few hours of sleep at night so being considerate when others are sleeping is important.

Other info:
I would like to have a phone introduction or Skype/Facetime call to speak with you and meet each other.
I would like payment by June 16. That gives me 1 month to find a replacement if you change your mind.
No parties in the room.
Non-smoker is important because I really don't like the smell of smoke.
