HE 2017 Questions about Room Transfering
« on: May 01, 2017, 01:19:33 PM »
Sorry if this info can be found easily in different thread but I didn't see and this is actually the first year I got offered through hotel sale and didn't have to rely on room share.

I was offered my #6 choice Hotel Solamar with a King bed.  Not bad and we are SyFy fans and from what I read this is where they all stay and have parties so thats pretty cool.  There are 3 of using coming from Hawaii and the other 2 didn't receive emails today.  Few questions:
- When I go ahead and pay deposit to lock this one down can I try and change to double beds?
- Also if I go ahead and pay deposit then one of other 2 gets offered something we like better on the 8th can I easily cancel without losing deposit
- Lastly does reserving this room remove me from the waiting list for my #1 - #5 choices.

Not complaining especially looking around not that many emails went out just trying to figure out our options. Thanks in advance!

you can try but frankly, it's doubtful they will do it- but try!

the refund dead line is the 15th of May. you should get your money back but it will be tied up

Hi,

I joined Sunday night (forever the procrastinator). I asked my friend to PM me so that I could setup my Gmail account to give me a special alert for emails from this forum. In the process, I discovered that I can't reply to PMs until 24 hrs after joining.  If by some miracle I get a PM with a room offer  ;D would an admin be able to activate PMs for me? I was worried about the hotel exchange "reply within 1 hour" rule. 

Thanks!

I confirmed by king room, but will I stay on the waitlist since this was not my choice?

At this point, I am crossing my fingers my BF gets Springhill/Residence Inn

I had a friend get Solamir last year. They will not give you a double. The only way to do so is to request a special needs room that handicap accessible.
