Gonna be a while...

Postby Mike12833 » Tue Dec 31, 2013 6:30 am

Guessing it will probably be a while before any trends start getting put up for 2014...

so other then that... i am curious ( mind you, this is probably posted everywhere and i have just completely missed it ) but... about when do the rooms for hotels open about?

Badges start selling in January.

Hotel room blocks open up about early-to-mid February.

Not sure if that includes an overflow too, but usually it does include another option at the same time that the Ren Cen is open.

Update:

With Midwest Media Expo occurring and the staff are busy working on that, it has been implied (by staff on Facebook) that registration and the hotel block for Youmacon may not go up until at least April.

I just wanted to add that information because although pre-reg and room blocks have gone up usually in the beginning of the year, we will be seeing some delays for Youmacon.

However, it'll be 10 years as of Youma 2014 so the delays won't put a hold on all of the awesomeness.

Thanks for the info, it actually is very good for me that it is being delayed ( least for me personally ) since it gives me a bit extra time to get the cash needed for the hotel which usually is filled up pretty quick.

Do they require a down payment for the reserved rooms?

No. You don't need money for the hotel until you check out.

Dunno why everything thinks that they need the money before booking the hotel room. That's never the case with anything unless you're buying a Groupon or the hotel specifically gives the option to pay in full right away.

That is because many hotels actually DO ask for a down payment, usually 1 night's stay, for booking at the time of booking, or a month or two in advance. It is generally a rare occasion, but something I have seen personally crop up quite frequently around anime convention hotels due to the number of people who will renig on their reservation in order to protect the hotel's profit margin for that weekend.

But Sally is correct, the Marriott does not require any down payment currently and we will work to ensure this doesn't ever happen.
