Title: HOW TO GET A ROOM FOR DRAGON CON 2021
Post by: Eternal Zan on July 15, 2020, 11:21:20 AM
Can't get your non-refundable deposit back from the hotel? Give away your hotel room in the Dragon Con Rooms group! There are always people who want a room, especially for host hotels. :D

THE NEW MASTER LIST FOR 2021 HAS BEEN PUBLISHED! There is a Master List of people who want a room in the Files section at https://www.facebook.com/groups/DragonConRoomsGroup/files. The people on the Master List will pay you back immediately for any non-refundable deposit you may have paid. $$$. The Master List helps people find hotel room transfers, roommates, ride shares, and more.

WHAT IS THE DRAGON CON ROOMS GROUP?

The Dragon Con Rooms group helps people find hotel rooms, transfers, room swaps, roommates, and ride shares, and more. Transfer instructions are included at https://www.facebook.com/groups/DragonConRoomsGroup/files. (https://www.facebook.com/groups/DragonConRoomsGroup/files.)

This group has over 11,000 members including many longtime attendees that can answer your questions.

WHAT IF I DIDN'T GET A ROOM FOR 2020? WHAT ARE MY CHANCES IN 2021?

All five host hotels allowed rollovers to 2021 and many overflow hotels did too. This means that if you didn't have a reservation for 2020 there will be fewer rooms available next year.

As of this writing, the Marriott and Westin host hotels are allowing rollovers to 2021 but NOT allowing refunds. So if you have a hotel room there and don't want to attend next year, your best shot at getting your money back is by transferring your room to a fellow DC attendee. The Marriott and Westin won't refund your money but a fellow attendee will be happy to take your room and reimburse you for it. Use the Master List at https://www.facebook.com/groups/DragonConRoomsGroup/files. (https://www.facebook.com/groups/DragonConRoomsGroup/files.) to find someone who wants your hotel room.

STILL HAVE QUESTIONS?

Each hotel has an Official Thread at https://www.facebook.com/groups/dragonconroomsgroup/announcements (https://www.facebook.com/groups/dragonconroomsgroup/announcements). The FAQ is in the first few comments of each thread. There is a lot of helpful information in the Announcements section - you'll learn answers to questions you didn't even know you had!

Q: WHY CAN'T I FOLLOW THOSE LINKS?

A: Only members of the Dragon Con Rooms group can follow the links. Request to join at https://www.facebook.com/groups/DragonConRoomsGroup (https://www.facebook.com/groups/DragonConRoomsGroup).

Keep an eye out for the required screening questions, they are there to keep out evil Mirror Universe people. #NoGoatees
