2018 Hotels
« on: September 05, 2017, 08:26:04 PM »
It's the Tuesday after Dragoncon. And its already late to get a hotel for next year.
The Westin went on sale this morning, and is sold out.

Below are links to the DragonCon hotel page and 2 Facebook groups.

Hilton- Legacy bookings.  you can call the hotel directly and asked to be put on a waiting list.

Hyatt- also doing legacy bookings.

Marriot- NOT doing Legacy bookings.  Room blocks open up early October.  Last year it was 10/5.  a post from DragonCon official Facebook page today said it would also be 10/5 this year but I would take this as gospel.  They sell out fast. To reiterate, Marriot opens up in early October. 

Sheraton- Also doing Legacy booking. Emails went out prior to DragonCon.

Westin- Not doing Legacy bookings.  Opened up this morning and sold out.  This year they released blocks of rooms as late as July before Con.

Indigo- not sure.  I though this was an official hotel this year, but it is not listed as such on the DragonCon website.

Also should note that EVERYONE who has a Hyatt legacy must update their credit card info by the 19th. It did not transfer over. You can do that by clicking the link in your confirmation email or calling the reservations team.

I cannot locate the official post from DragonCon about Marriott opening on the 5th. It's usually a Wednesday and the 5th is a Thursday this year. I will be on the look out for the moment an official post is made.

Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favour!
