CCI 2012 Room Shares
« on: November 21, 2011, 07:11:58 AM »
If you're interested in sharing a room/apt/condo post here.

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 & cleaning fees.

kindly follow this format

LAYOUT
Name: (This is optional; you can use your forum username instead)
Hotel: (Which hotel you are staying at?  Are beds available? Is there floor space available?  Will there be roll-out beds?)

Days Booked: (Include which days)
Price: (Include calculated hotel tax and the like.  If you're looking for a room, just write "N/A" here.)
Smoking/Drinking: (Yes or No)
Spaces Left: (In other words, how many people do you want to be in your room? Don't forget to include yourself.)

Preferences and Description:
  • What type of room is it, and how many people can it fit?
  • Do you have an age or gender preference for roommates?
  • 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.)
  • Specific behavioral preferences for roommates? (Ex: I prefer one that is organized, clean, and a non-smoker.)
Please edit/modify your post if your room is full, or if you made any changes to the room.
This is so that people can see which rooms are available and which aren't.

* Disclaimer*
****I do not vet people/agencys who post here!  Please use your personal judgement as to the other person****

***Thank you Zero for putting structure to this page! :)***

2 cousins from Canada coming down to the Comic Con looking for anyone who has a place for the whole convention including the preview night.
Just your typical fun nerds, we like comics, games, magic and movies.  We are planning to do cosplay on one of the days, so someone who is doing the same would be cool.

Looking for not just a room but people to meet and possibly hit a club or the beach (Lego land even!) with, so not just the con.
would like a place that is short walking distance from the convention center we'll have a car but I suspect parking will be stupid.

Send me an email to [email protected] with rates and what you are offering whether its a couch, bed or floor.

Thanks for reading
Cheers

Re: Room Shares (500 West Hotel)

I have a dilemma:  I was able to purchase a Comic-Con pass for myself but unable for a family member :-(  I'm waiting to hear from Comic-Con when they'll release returned badges for resales.  If I'm unable to get a badge for my family member, I'm interested in sharing the following accommodations. 



I'll be at Comic-Con from July 11-15, 2012 and have reserved a standard double room (non-smoking) with city view at 500 West Hotel:  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

This room is furnished with a flat screen TV and a wardrobe for a maximum of 2 people.  There is no meal option with this room. 

There is no capacity for extra beds/cots in the room.  Public parking is possible on site (reservation is not needed) and charges are applicable.
Wi-fi is available in the entire hotel and is free of charge.  Pets are not allowed.

San Diego Convention Center is a short 5-10 minute walk from the hotel's front door. The 500 West is an urban, European-style hotel with 260 contemporary guestrooms, fitness center, and cafe.

You'll be able to cancel up until July 6, 2012 8:00 am at no charge.

Hi everyone !
This year will be my first Comic Con, I'm going with a friend.
We would be interested in sharing a room with 2 other persons, considering the prices of hotels.
We are both 19-year-old-french boys, particularly found of TV shows like Lost, Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, The Walking Dead...
Send me a PM if you are interested ;)

EDIT : Sorry, but i have bought the hotel yesterday (just for the two of us)

So this is my first year going. I'm a 40 year old man recently single Currently from South Carolina (I'm FROM Chicago, I live in SC). I'm a non-smoker, and I drink very little. I'm also a culinary arts student, not that I see myself cooking this weekend. I'd like to talk to the person I'm sharing a room with ahead of time, dont wanna crash with a complete stranger. e-mail me anytime.

Hey, Dijetu
Did you mean Holiday Inn Rancho Bernardo ? If so, that's quite a bit farther then 1/2 mile from the Convention Center. I'm a San Diego resident/native, and I'd estimate, that it's at 15-20 minute drive....just an FYI

I've managed to get a  room, (2 beds, I believe, but bring your sleeping bag and we'll sneak you in past security if there's lots of you}  about a half mile from the Con.  It's a little too soon to be making anyone any promises, but if you're interested in sharing, I'm down with that.  I'm at the Holiday Inn Ranch Bernardo.  I've booked for the 11th to the 15th.  No free breakfast or anything, but it's within walking or a cheap cab fare.  Email me at [email protected] if you're down.  I'm volunteering this year, so I'll be there for the duration.  Cheers!

@Alyssa: May I suggest including this formatting in the first post?  I think it'll really help with organizing posts in this thread (it might even make it easier for people to look for roommates).

Hope it helps! ^_^d

Mr. Donuts
500 West
4 days Thursday through Sunday
Smoke yes/ Drink no
One space left (possibly two depending on security)
The room has a single & double bed, but I only have my guest w/me.
18+ yrs, organized, clean, responsible, and respectful. I don't mind any cosplay gear, costumes, tourist stuff, or what you get at the CC. I'm in my mid-thirties, have lived in SD for over fifteen years, know what a carne asada burrito is, and remember the days when you could walk up to CC, and buy a badge. If you like Star Wars, Robotech, anime, movies, zombies, and Big Sonic Chill...then I'm sure we'll get along. I'm responsible, and believe that respect goes both ways. Also, NO drugs, underage drinking, or anything illegal. I don't, and hope you will do the same. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

So if you have read this far, here is my offer:
I would like two badges for Friday and/or Saturday for my guest and I. I'm aware that badges are non-transferable, however, if you were to purchase these (resales/refunds in May) for me then the space is yours. Now here's the kicker, I am willing to pay the purchase price of the tickets (if you get them), and the room is yours for free. Yes, this may sound too good to be true, but some people have good luck, or are just ahead in line. I will try to purchase them on my own, but if I can't and someone else comes through, well then whomever has a place to stay. If you have any concerns, questions, or what-have-you feel free to ask.

Also, I think it would be appropriate to communicate before hand that way we have an idea of who the other is.

Looking for a place to sleep, shower, and store my items Thursday - Sunday.
Within a mile or so of the Convention is fine, plenty of shuttles, and I don't mind walking.
Easier to make this trip if there is a way to share lodging costs.

I'm a non smoker, responsible late 30's. Star Wars fan & collector, love comic books, movies, and art. Not much of a party person, SDCC will be a little break from paramedic school. I am neat and organized, and trustworthy. (firefighter/paramedic student)

If you have a room booked and want an extra person to share costs with, please get in touch. Sharon

Hotel - 500west
Dates- July 7- 14
Single person occupency
Not looking to share only to "sell" a nonrefundable hotel booking that I had already paid for in full.



Ok so tried to get a badge and didn't.
 Now I have a paid for hotel reservation that is non refundable because I was reeeeeaaally optomistic. I am aware there is a chance that I could get a resale but I've had to alter plans since the main sale.
 If any one is interested it's at the 500West hotel/hostel from July 7th - 14th. It's a single occupency room. 15 min walk to the convention centre.  I would be willing to work out a deal with someone to recover some of my cost and (try to) switch the reservation to another name. I'm asking $400. Which is less than what I paid for it.
 If your interested please send me an email and we can discuss it.
