Basically it will be whatever they have left. IIRC, people have until tonight to finalize their bookings. I'm guessing there won't be any downtown hotels, but you never know...

I have not heard of TP clearing anybody from the waitlist (did I miss it?) and since they have not I suspect that they won't until after the sale on the 10th. We know there are cancellations at downtown hotels from double bookings. I expect we'll see some downtown availbility on 4/10.

Did anyone receive an email announcing the hotel sale for tomorrow?

there will be a sale tomorrow at 9am pdt (are you guys on daylite savings time) or 12 edt.

they don't know what will be available tomorrow

Did they say if it'll be the same waitlist process or will you be requesting specific hotels this time (like the early bird sale)?
...you had me at hello...

I called them a few days ago. Everyone agrees there will be a sale tomorrow, but beyond that the reservation agent I talked to only had rumors, no facts about the sale. I don't know whether they really don't know anything there or they do know but don't want to say. It's not a very well run organization.

It's either going to be like the Early Bird sale where you search for availability and then book it in real time, or it's going to be like the first sale where you use a form to request 1-20 hotels.

I looked into my crystal ball and my advice is: be ready for the form.

agreed! 
i think this thread on the cci fb page about summed it up; You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
What i don't understand is how they can have a 'resale' without having notified anyone from the wait list

i'm not sure abt that.. maybe i'm giving them to much credit but i would think they'd only be selling MV hotels which seem more like the early bird sale method.  like i said I'm giving them to much credit,  :o

I think if you need a room you should just keep checking tomorrow morning (particularly n the hour leading up to 9 am Pacific) and be prepared to deal with anything. Know beforehand what you're willing to buy (presuming you have the option to book immediately) or all relevant information (fi there if a form to fill out).

Good luck to everyone who will participate!

I agree with you Transmute Jun. People should be familiar with both processes so they are ready for whatever comes tomorrow.

Me neither. I'd be pissed if I were on the waiting list. They do what they want.

I don't give them much credit but maybe they'll turn it around tomorrow? We'll find out in the morning.

I could be wrong but I believe on the hotel pages it says to check often to see if hotel rooms open up. So even after today if you need a room check. You never know what will open up.
