Hey guys! I have a huge problem. I reserved a room at the Westin, but I am unable to go to Dragon Con and the room is non refundable. I got the DC rate of $182/night. Does anyone need a room that would be willing to take mine.

Have you talked to the Hotel and they said you could not cancel your reservation?  Most hotels these days only require 24 hours notice, and with Dragon*Con, they know they will have enough demand to fill all of their rooms. 

If they give you push back, I would suggest talking to a manager and explain if they don't cut you some slack, you will not only not stay there in years to come, but you will recommend to your friends who are staying there never to stay there again (even if you don't have friends staying there.) 

That being said, if they really won't budge, I think there is a good chance someone will want your room.

With all the hotels being sold out I would hang on to that piece of real state for a while longer. I'm sure somebody out there is looking for a room.
