  6. I don't know if they have any left, but that hotel hasn't gone though a remodel to remove anything and a long time. I would suggest calling because that's the only way to try an get a connecting room.
  7. The Hilton is not planned to be in our hotel blocks this year, you can reserve regular rooms with them.
  8. Hotels are always going to keep some rooms outside of the hotel blocks. They have to for contracts they keep with other people. The only thing we have control over is our hotel block. If the hotel says you cant get those rooms it may be the dates you are looking for, sometimes the only rooms left are for only Friday or only Saturday. If you are looking to spend points on a room you will need to find a room outside our block somewhere, we do not have control over those rooms/what is availble/ and when they might release those rooms. If you want to use one of the hotel blocks we've provided, your best bets now are the Crowne or the DoubleTree, especially if you are looking for full weekend rooms.
  9. They are almost sold out at both the Hyatt and Embassy, there were a couple king rooms this morning at both, but I doubt for long. Points cant be used on block rooms, but if you manage to book outside the blocks they can be used.
  10. Suggestions for 2014

    The latest hotel block release was updated with hotel information on the website and social media. We en devour to update both at close to the same time. Most of the questions are answered on the facebook if they can be answered by the staff, if someone jumps on with the correct answer then its already done. You can sign up for sms updates to your phone if you dont like Facebook or Twitter, but they will continue being the announcement tool we use in conjunction with the website to hold the information.
  11. Our hotel guru is checking on status's of rooms, but it looks like there's still space at the Crowne and DoubleTree

  25. 2013 Gripes

    For the next several years the Dealers Hall will be in Hall A of the Convention Center, I personally fee lit is a much easier hall to operate in and navigate, the other one looking like a big tetris block and all.... Water dispensing units were around the Hyatt like before, so I'm assuming people are talking about in the convention center where they are not provided to us other than at restrooms or in the expoteria purchase stations.
