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.

LOOKING FOR ROOMMATES (Room is already booked, just looking for roommates)

Name: Rose V.
Hotel Area/Name of Hotel: Using airbnb and renting an apartment. It's 3 blocks away from Grand Central Station and approx 17 minute subway ride to Javits
Days: Oct 5 -10 (check-in on Wednesday 3PM, checkout on Monday at 1PM)
Price Per Night: $248 for each bed space (prices are for whole stay) You can either pay in full OR pay half to  reserve a spot. The second half is due by Aug 30th Sep 30th. Paypal is preferred. NO AT CON PAYMENTS. This is a first come, first serve basis!
Smoking/Drinking:   No/No since this is someone else's home (What you do outside of the room is none of my business.)
Spaces: 1 bed, 2 sofa bed

Preferences and Description:
Age Preference of Roommates:
18+
Gender Preference of Roommates: any gender is fine
Include a brief description about yourself: I am a 29 y/o female, This is my first time going to NYCC (but I've been to SDCC 4 times before) but third time running a room. I'm a little shy at first but polite and friendly (but I do geek out about fandoms I love). I keep my stuff nice and neat. NYCC just so happens to fall on my birthday so I will be going out to celebrate it (and anyone who rooms with me is more than welcomed to join me!) I am also a cosplayer/crossplayer. I basically will only be there to drop off stuff, shower, and sleep.

Additional preferences for roommates: Please be clean, respectful to others and their stuff, have a good sense of humour, and mature.  Showering daily is a must! If you come in the room late or leave the room early please be respectful to those trying to sleep. Cosplayers are very  welcomed! Let me know if you plan on bringing any large props (just so I know how to situate the room). And let me know a little bit about yourself!

UPDATE: 2 bed spaces left
UPDATE #2: Changing the payment due date to Sep 30th
UPDATE #3: 1 sofa space left

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

Name: Russell B.
Name of Hotel: Meadowlands View Hotel - You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
Days: Check In Thursday 10/06, Check Out Sunday 10/09 (3 nights)
Price Per Night: $80 per night or $215 for ALL 3 nights
Smoking/Drinking: No smoking (at least not in the room), drinking is okay so long as you can hold your liquor
Spaces: The room has two double beds (one of which I am using).  I am willing to share the room with an additional 3 people if nobody minds sharing the beds (so long as you all belong to the same group - I will not accept multiple offers from multiple parties - just so everyone is comfortable).  I don't mind sharing my bed if you don't.  There is an additional $20 per night charge for EACH additional person in your group.

Preferences and Description:
Age Preference of Roommates: Doesn't matter to me.  But I'm 39, if that makes a difference.
Gender Preference of Roommates: If it doesn't bother you that I'm a guy, I don't care what you are.
Include a brief description about yourself: I am a recently published comic book writer (You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login).  I am married and have two small girls and a cat.
Additional preferences for roommates: Just be a decent human being and we should get along fine.

Additional Info About the Room: The hotel is in North Bergen, New Jersey.  It has shuttle service to and from the Javits Center that (last year) costs $8 one way, or $15 round trip.  The shuttle takes 20-30 minutes depending on traffic.

Update:  The spot has been filled.  There are no available spaces.
