I'll go on record as saying this was the best DragonCon ever bar none.

-getting to visit with out of town friends we hadn't seen in a few years
-not getting trapped in a bouncing elevator with screaming people this year
-unown spawns for Pokemon Go :)
- #swordguychallenge hashtag on Twitter during the Sunday night masquerade  (we give mad props to sword guy, he is crazy fit to pull off his performance); also Eddie McClintock and Tony were the best host duo I've seen!  They had our room in stitches the entire time.
-loved the Ilona Andrews panel and that they let us into the room early since it was the first panel of the day and aired the live stream of the parade while we waited.
- John Barrowman/Catherine Tate panel was hilarious and I would love to see them together again.

It honestly didn't feel that terrible to us this year.  There were few times we decided to take food back to our rooms, but we would have done so in any other year as well since it was peak lunch/dinner rush hour when that occurred.

I keep seeing people say the Hilton is bad about honoring legacy bookings but we haven't had that experience at all and I have my email confirming my room reservation before I ever leave the con so I wonder what is driving it.  I know that the legacy block is a limited number of rooms and given out on a first come, first served based on check in times so maybe the people complaining are late arrivals and the block has already been given out by the time they arrive?  If anyone has heard specifics I'd be curious to see if my theory is correct.

I heard the numbers this year were a little short of last year with 80K vs. 85K.   I'd venture a guess as not as many Saturday only badges sold to parade goers/football fans as it felt like there were much fewer of them wandering around the convention this year.

Most of the hotels will be opening room blocks in the coming weeks. 

Usually someone will post here on the forums when they see any official announcements. 

There are also several very active Facebook groups that do a great job of keeping everyone posted on the availability.  You might want to follow this group...
