Are these dates still valid, you think? Seems like the page that originally posted then seem to have removed the dates.

At this point, who knows? They haven't even 100% confirmed the November dates for this year. Regardless, they probably want to focus on the November show before promoting SDCC in 2022.

That being said, it doesn't seem like there's a reason to NOT hold it next year.

This isn't a confirmation, but last week it was noticed that people were able to reserve those dates at the MGH. And now it says those specific dates are not available. All the weeks before are available and the week after is available, but the 20th to 24th is not available. Again, not confirmation, but interesting nonetheless.

A few rooms at the MGH were (overall) up until sometime Sunday afternoon PT that included refundable and non-refundable (pay now) with or without your cancellation penalty. One option was by booking through Booking.com. Later I checked the MGH website and it also had some rooms up, but they were non-refundable and pay now with a cancellation penalty. I think some people took all of the available rooms that were up more than the hotel taking them off for now. Once the UBlog retweeted the news/a person’s tweet, 30mins later, the rooms were gone on Booking.com. The MGH website selection was gone later in the afternoon. I was keeping tabs on what was going on the best I could.

The prices weren’t that bad, but still not cheap. But you are right nothing is available that week so far from MGH. The other big hotels next to the convention center aren’t there yet as of today.

Could you please share that blog link/post ? I didn't see that MGH info, not 100% sure which one you mean. I am definitely interested to keep track of hotel options for 2022. Thanks!

It wasn’t a blog post from the UBlog, they retweeted someone’s tweet. Here’s the link: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I was doing my best in keeping tabs on what was going on that day (July 4th) after seeing that person’s tweet. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one on the forum who saw it. Anyway, I hope this helps. :)

I saw the MGH tweet and went ahead and booked a refundable room through booking.com. Not crazy expensive, not cheap, and booking.com makes me a little nervous but *shrug*

I use Booking.con. They are good. I only use them for free cancellations though. I got a room for next year for those dates. A little expensive, but when CCI does the hotel thing, I have that option of cancelling before the con dates

Booking.com has the Sofia up for the week for cheap.  I put in 6 nights and it showed $515 for the week.  That's about 85 bucks a night. Can't beat that!

This is probably a good week to scope out hotels for next year. A lot opened up in my daily search this morning. The Sofia was definitely the cheapest so far.

The Sofia currently has no rooms available for 2022 SDCC dates.

Yikes! Prices shot up all over the city for that week. I think we lucked out.
