Wyndham Bayside you can hold a room now. I have done this the past few years holding a 2 bed room with them as my backup as you can cancel right before the trip if need be and the hotel is only just under a mile away from the convention center. Yes it is a bit of a walk but better than being stuck in hotel circle or further back! Then if I get in good on the hotel lottery I just cancel it or offer it up to someone on the forums.

Y'know, this isn't a bad idea.  I was out on Harbor Island with roommates this year, and the shuttles could be such a royal pain as the weekend progressed.  I'll book this as a backup in case my (first time ever) going for a hotel in 2017 doesn't pan out.  Thanks for the tip!

Don't forget you have to book at full price ($359 per night, I think) in order to be able to cancel the room later.  The other, cheaper options require a non-refundable deposit, and are non-cancelable.

Good reminder to always check and double check before booking!

I used some reward points that I had through Wyndham and booked the Wyndham Bayside for $150 a night plus points. Not bad. I can still cancel if I want.

NICE!

Also, remember, many places will take AAA for booking and you can get a discount.  It's about 10% but it's better than nothing!

With taxes it worked out to $404 a night (savings not found :P  ). Exorbitant, but it's better than winding up empty handed in the lottery and not having the option.

Also, Google Maps says it's 1.3 mi walking distance but that's to the middle of the convention center.

FYI, I just recently saw on Expedia, that the Hilton Airport/Marina was available at below $200/night.

Looks like a good idea to book a hotel early on to be on the safe side..

Was going to book this but when I got down to the bottom it did tell me that I would be charged immediately. Yes, I can cancel but I can't afford to tie up $500+ so soon after comic con, but thanks for the heads up.

Looks like the Pendry website has been updated.  Booking is available through the end of June 2016.

A lot of the downtown hotels are showing as available through the Skyscanner app. Pricey but available. If you want to take the plunge :)

I saw that the Porta Vista in Little Italy has availability for only $9,999 per night on Booking.com.

Now I stayed at the Porta Vista one year during Comic-Con, and I can tell you that it's not even worth half that price, but they did have a free hotel shuttle at the time. ;D

I've stayed there too. Nice hotel but as you say Steve, not worth that.
However I do think it is an error.
