Do have a coffeemaker for hot water 1 cup at a time. But sometimes they hide it, or you have to ask for one. I did once when for some reason there wasn't one...

I do not know anything about a microwave; sorry.

^ That's what we did. And it worked well. Or you could use your bathtub as a cooler and put lots of ice in it and when you take a shower your feet get reallllllllly coooooooooooold. :3 not that I would know from experience. NOOO! *looks away*.
But you do have to pay for using the fridge. They tried to charge me for it, but I was like "I'm not using it" so they locked it or something so I didn't pay anything.

I also recommend eating as healthy as possible - a few of us at Geek.Kon made a grocery run that Thursday night, and tried to buy as many healthy things as we could. (Not easy, when you have a team of ~20 people, with tastes varying from sweet tooth to hollow leg to vegan, AND a McDonald's and Denny's within easy walking distance.) We didn't do half bad, either - baby carrots, wheat bread, whole grain white bread, clementine oranges, crackers, and some granola bars, among other things.
Come up with the right combination of foods, and you can feed yourself pretty well during the course of the con.

Usually I get the breakfast bar at the Hyatt, a can of spagetti O's for lunch, and dinner is either another can or the Ala Carte they setup, or one of the restaurants depending on whats being served for the buffet and my mood for food. But Thursday night is always Giordano's Pizza Dinner. ^_^v
Also, can't go wrong with peanut butter and bread. It's quick, requires no cooling, and easy to bring home the leftovers.

*The only hotel that I know that has a micro is the Embassy. There is one with a kitchen but its not near Rosemount.
*Don't use the fridge in the Hyatt unless you know all the fees! The fridge isn't free that comes with the room. Also don't use anything in the fridge.
For the beer, go to Dominicks or if you have a car/know someone go to Indiana. The booze at Rosemount and surrounding areas are expensive, and that same price for a pint you could buy a fifth or a half a gallon and a six pack.
Food wise, get a cooler and be prepared to get tons of ice. You could get a rice cooker and make dishes by steaming them.
Also Chinatown in Chicago has a market with instant curry you can boil or steam along with ramen cups that are cheap.
