So the Hyatt is already booking...will other hotels have similar, earlier-than-usual dates for booking windows?



From what I remember on the Facebook post IIRC is the person who said the Hyatt was open was saying Embassy and a few others would open at their usual dates. You never know though. While I'm Happy I reserved my place at Hyatt and helped friends get their rooms, a more formal announcement would be better than somebody not with staff announcing they're open leading to "Oh yeah, they're open we just forgot to announce it."

I'll give them a pass this time..as this is quite unusual for this particular con from my years of experience.

Yeah, ACen, I'm um. Pretty disappointed that this wasn't announced properly. The room block opening is a big deal, after all. Also why are next year's dates so hidden? This is kind of a bad start imo.

I'm sorry, a little lost here. What dates are hidden? The con itself or the hotel dates availability dates?

I'm lost too! Are you talking about the dates when you book the hotel? My friend was confused on why there were no dates as well when booking the hotel. Just click on the calender next to the empty box and the May 2014 calender pops up with the dates with the ACen rate. Or ACen's dates for next year?

I'm not the original poster, but it may be about the 2014 dates - the header on the ACen site hasn't updated yet, so it's still showing 2013's dates. I can see how it would be confusing that the hotel is open when the website doesn't seem to have switched over to next year yet.

For $119 a night for 2014? I'm checking their rates online and for (4) ppl it's giving me a nightly rate of $239. What gives? -_-

Well I guess I did put 2 people down, and yes 119 for fri and sat, and 189 for the 15th because I love going on thursday and what not. I just checked their website and their cheapest rate is 189 right now, it is amazing how they can jack the prices up

Sorry for the confusion, I mean the 2014 con dates. I had to dig around and find them on animecons.com, which is kind of ridiculous honestly. It's July. They should be somewhere on the front page.

Tiny text, not even bolded, though I do stand corrected re; front page. I shouldn't have to dig up this past year's con guide to look them up, nor should I have to dig through the forums. The dates should be better publicized.

Got mine as well. Was freaking out a bit when I found out the Hyatt block was already open. They're out of doubles w/o balcony for the whole weekend. (They have Thur & Fri, but not Sat night). Seems like they're also out of doubles w/balcony for Sat as well. I shouldn't be surprised...they sell out fast every year...

Just reserved a room for my boyfriend and I. :) Our first A-Cen as a couple, since we got together shortly after A-Cen 2012. And it's the weekend after our anniversary, so it's the perfect getaway weekend.

Lools like the Hyatt is going to be sold out by the time badges come out. Guess I should start looking for a secondary place.

I've already tried the Embassy. They say there no rooms available for that weekend. I'm hoping that means they're holding them for the con to release.

Can anyone who's stayed there before tell me if there's enough space in the bedrooms for a crib, or would that have to stay out in the living room?

the sleeping space was kinda small if i remember right...the living room area was pretty big though...and yeah it will say "no rooms" til the block opens. the year i booked it alone i had to call the day they were supposed to open so the booking lady could work around the block on booking (i jumped the gun out of eagerness and the rooms were open for online booking the next day no problems)

The other hotels when ready to be opened will be announced in several places, we are sorry for the confusion of the Hyatt opening so early. Like last year when hotels are posted we will mark them on the website as sold out. Thanks for your patience :).

Already booked for the Hyatt but I'm gonna wait until the others open up and see what's their prices and perks are. Apparently the people at the Embassy are real douchemonkys and are know to yell and bully the cosplayers and attendants, so screw them.


I have never had ANY problems with the Embassy staff. As long as you don't act like a total a-hole, they are great.

Yeah, the Embassy will basically block out the whole hotel for ACen. Once they work out the details with ACen, they will open the rooms up.

If the room is one of the double bed rooms, it could be tight. If it is one of the rooms with the king size bed, there is really a lot of room. We were able to put two twin size air mattresses in the bedroom as well as the king size bed. It will really depend upon how big the crib is.

Does anyone know if you can cancel a Hyatt reservation up to a certain date? And if so, anyone know what that date is?

I don't remember the exact date, but sometime in April they take out a deposit for the room you booked. You would have to cancel before then if you don't want to lose any money.

i can totally agree with that...its just like any other job, if people are screaming at you and acting like a-holes all the time yeah you might get a bit edgy with others that associate with them...kindness begets kindness :highfive:

Looks like I can't book Saturday night at the Hyatt. So if this is full, and I need a Thursday - Monday reservation, are the other hotel blocks going to open soon?

It could just be one room type is full like double with balcony. You can try a different room type for the nights you want. We will announce when hotels are full :) More room blocks will be coming and will be announced when they open.
