In my DCon experience, I've stayed at the Hilton, Hyatt and Marriott Marquis. Everyone
has to wait for the elevator a little longer especially on Saturday. That's when the craziness
begins! I LOVE it!

I'm new to this forum. Thanks for the information!

Hello, looking for Hyatt room or suite. Am hoping for legacy to be included. Want to stay Wed to Tuesday. Likely could add days if you have Thurs to Sunday only.

Thanks very much

PS have room elsewhere just prefer Hyatt and missed legacy :(

yes, there's a walkway straight to the building across the street which has walkways to the mart; i've only tried to get across that way a couple times, and each time we were sent down to the ground floor and out onto the street to go in the main entrance with everyone else.  so i don't know if they're going to let ppl use the cut through.

Doesn't Westin have the 'super secret' access walkways to the Vendor hall? I feel like I've cut through there by accident in prior years.

Yay for more football sightseers in the vendor hall making the crowds there even worse on Saturday.  Note to self: visit the vendor hall any other day of the con.

Tiny bathroom; one of those showers with a hose and sprayer. I found the sprayer had better water pressure than the actual shower head.  Room is pie shaped, cel service best by the windows. You won t hear anything in the rooms on either side of you but you will hear *everything* in your elevator lobby.  The elevators are impossible, and they don t let you use the fire stairs like the other hotels, so you will be spending a long damn time waiting for a ride, and may even get stranded on some floors.

Some people love the place, but i wouldn t stay there again unless it were free, and not even then for dragoncon.

But do take the opportunity to go up to the sundial, since you can do it for free; nice view. (Dunno about the food/drink, since i was studiously ignored at the bar for 20 mins until i grabbed a waitron who airily told me i couldn t have a cup of coffee, so said Screw it and left.) (other patrons were being ignored as well.  Don t go to the bar.)
