Extra room keys

Extra room keys
« on: August 03, 2018, 06:05:56 PM »
I just wanted to check on something real quick....  In the past when ive roomed with someone, keys were never an issue, but my last con was 2015, so i wanted to make sure things havent changed.

I have a room at the hilton, currently up to 4 people (including myself), and im wanting to squeeze in a 5th.  In the past, you'd just go to the desk and either straight up ask for an extra, or just say you lost one of the keys, and they'd hand em out no problem.  Is this still the case?

Say you......  ?

Perhaps I should also mention the room is reserved for 4 adults up front, if that makes a difference.

In hindsight though, maybe I posted this question in entirely the wrong section to begin with.  I was just thinking "hotel section", but that's not entirely right is it .  Mods feel free to delete if I err'd.  I can repost somewhere more appropriate.

The Forum ate my post. Not even joking. It does that from time to time. It doesnt like commas.

I just said Not that I am aware of but you are in a different hotel. I just wouldnt promise your roomies a key before hand.

I'm laughing so hard right now

Edit:   Aw.  Now I'm a little let down.  You just HAD to go and fix you post, didn't you. 

Also, thanks much for the info.  I'll probably pestering the hotel from time to time till con gets here to make sure nothing crazy happens, so I'll just add keys to the list of things to pester about.  At least now I'll be forewarned it's possible we'll be short and I can plan accordingly. I think a little creative engineering g could go a long way if I'm prepared.

Update for any who are curious:. I spoke to the Hilton.  The assured me that, because I reserved for 4 adults, I'm guaranteed 4 keys.  In fact, they even put a note on a confirmation email saying "min 1 key per reg guest".  I also found a post somewhere (Reddit I think) where someone as recent as last year was able to get multiple extra keys at the Hilton without complaint. 

Also of note, in case anyone else experiences this, I actually called them primarily to find out why my card still hasn't been billed for the deposit, but they assured me that they pre-auth'd already, but it may not fully "bill" the card till closer to con.  So if anyone else is wondering why they haven't taken your money yet, it's likely the same thing
