Feb. 24th, 2012 @ 09:00 pm Host Hotel for Whedonverse
Current Mood: excitedexcited
Hey Guys,

I am brand new to the community but am a loooooong lover of Buffy and all things Joss. My boyfriend and I are finally going to go to Dragon * Con this year and we are trying to get a room in a host hotel. I heard that Whedonverse is in Westin and thought maybe I should try to get a room there just to be closer to the track, but does it really matter? Basically...

Would having a room in the Westin Hotel help me travel to this track a lot better or should I just try and go with whatever hotel is nicer and/or available? 

Thanks for your advice!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Westin is probably sold out by now. You need to just find a room at a hotel close by!

The Westin did open up some rooms a week or so ago. Try them and see. otherwise, this late in the game, you may have to just take what you can get. Be careful tho. If you go much further north than the Hyatt, Marriott and Hilton it's a really bad part of town and you probably don't want to stay in any hotels there.

The other trick is to keep calling, at least 2 times a week, because people will be cancelling reservations and such as well.

As for hotel choice, it depends on what you plan on doing at D*C. If your focus is the Whedon track, then the Westin is fine. If you're focusing on something that happens more int he other hotels, then you might want to try for that hotel.

As of last week I think the Altanta Marriott Downtown (which is across the street from the Westin) had rooms, but you'll need to call them for a reservation.

I checked out that hotel, looks really nice but The Marriott Downtown has rooms but not at the Dragon * Con price and its like 300+ a night.I have a room reserved at the Hampton Inn around the corner from the conference, google maps says it's a ten minute walk, that shouldn't kill me! :)
