    I want to go...

    ...but I doubt it. Time constraints.

        I'll be there next year providing one of 2 things happen first...

        1. Win that damn lotto
        2. Get a job where I can take that time off that actually pays me a decent wage...

          signing up next paycheck that isn't for covering bills. Room-wise, waiting on the rates to be released for the Hilton, and trying not to put the cart ahead of the horse as far as roomie-expectations go, since a lot can happen in a year.

          For now, though...back to cleaning. Visitors arrive in less than 48 hours!

            We're going to get a suite at the Mariott next year if we get enough people to say they're definately going. Want to call dibs on a slot?

              I may be wrong but I think the suites are already gone. Coud be wrong... I'd join you in a heartbeat, but the wife and I swore off of shared rooms years ago. One too many deviated septums and sleepless nights.

                Interesting... I tried to abuse the corporate reservation system at work to get a room reserved, and it looks like the entire Marriott is booked solid. Suites, rooms, the lot. Methinks the devious Dragon*Con management have reserved the whole place for their group booking codes this time.

                I've sent an enquiry off the hotel reservation desk to find out if it's a blackout for group booking codes or real guests really booking rooms. I'll post the reply if I get one.

                Because if they haven't, I'm somewhat screwed for rooms there, and I've learned not to go near the Hyatt, unless they sack the fire marshal. (Who fires the fire marshal?)

                The Hilton has rooms left but no suites that I can find.

                Soooo.... Book the Hilton, where the staff were a touch below competent but I know there's a room, or wait for the group booking codes for Marriott to be published and hope I was right?

                  Is there a campsite nearby? I own tents.

                  Is there an armourer nearby? I don't own a large number of efficient projectile weapons yet.
                  When I was fifteen, my father thought I knew nothing. When I was twenty-five, I was amazed by how little he thought I'd learned in such a long time.

                    I believe D*C has most of the suites booked for group codes because they go real quick and tend to be offered to the special GoH's

                      It's Georgia. They have gun shops like Seattle has Starbucks.

                        Reply from Marriott

                        OK, first layer of callcentre droids encountered.

                        You have reached Marriott's central Internet Customer Care department. We believe that you may be inquiring about a group at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis. Unfortunately we do not have any information regarding "Dragon Con" at this time. You may want to check back with us or contact your group coordinator for further information.

                        Regarding your question about "no availability", you will receive this response if you the dates that you have selected or the rate you are requesting is not available. You may want to try alternate dates or locations.
                        I've sent a nice polite "yes, but WHY is there no availability" reply. Don't want to end up on Rapscallion's "Customers suck" board now, do I?

                        It appealed to my sense of humour that my enquiry was answered by a Ms. Moroney.... am I bad?

                          Marriott get it sorted out.

                          They wrote back quickly this time.

                          Please know that it was not our intent to insult you in any way. We do appreciate your business and your faithful use of Marriott brand properties. Please be assured, we understand the value of your business and hope to keep it.

                          At this time, our records indicate there are five groups booked at the
                          Atlanta Marriott Marquis during the Labor Day season. Please be aware, this may be what is causing the sold out status as of now. We are unable to determine how many regular guests have reserved a guest room for the dates of your intended travel. For the most updated status regarding your request, we invite you to contact the hotel directly and speak with a sales associate. We have provided the contact information below:
                          Point to Sehson, you're right. No idea who the other 4 groups are, or it could be five Dragon*Con related groups, for guests, staff, exhibitors, dealers, and civilians? Just a wild guess.

                          Anyhoo, looks like I'll be camping on the Dragon*Con website until I see the new booking codes, sometime next year.

                            I would, but I'm worried y'all would scar the boyperson too badly Meanwhile, the thing I was kinda expecting would happen did, which means back to square one.
