Just a reminder- February 2, 2018, rooms become available at the partner hotels, and suites are available in the Westin now (if any are still available.)

Also, remember that the website address for hotel reservations will be posted on  both Twitter and Facebook, and probably others.  It might be quicker to grab the link from one of those sites instead of getting it here.

To avoid problems with parents, read this FAQ and all its internal links before discussing Furry with your parents:

Giza:
"On Friday, February 2nd, 2018 general hotel reservations will open at 11 AM Eastern Standard Time (GMT -0500). If we were to post the link on this website at 11 AM, the website would quickly become overwhelmed with all the requests. So instead, we will once again post the link on our various social media channels.

Shortly after 11 AM (as shown by the service at https://time.is/), the link to reserve hotel rooms will be posted in the following social media channels, in order:

Our Twitter Feed
Our Facebook Page
Our Google Plus Page
Our Telegram Announcement Channel

...in the event that one service is down or otherwise unreachable, we will move onto the next service. The first 3 services (Twitter, Facebook, and Google Plus) do not require accounts on those services to view--the page may simply be loaded (and refreshed) in your web browser.

As room types and hotels sell out, we will post updates to our Twitter feed.

After about an hour or two, once things have calmed down, we will then update our hotel page with details on each hotel's remaining inventory."

"Tips For Booking A Room

From VisitPittsburgh Housing Services: "If you know the legal names of your roommates when you make your booking, of course you can enter them, and if you have your roommates’ email addresses, enter them in the email field and your roommates will receive a copy of the reservation acknowledgment. If you do not know the true names of your roommates at the time of booking, please do not add fake names or generic names such as Guest #2, Guest #3. Instead, leave those names blank and then reach out to Visit Pittsburgh as described in the next step...
If you need assistance after your reservation is made or need to add/change guests, please email housing(at)visitpittsburgh.com for assistance. Replies may be delayed for a day or two after reservations open due to volume.
From PassKey: "We recommend that you only have one browser window open. Using multiple browsers/multiple windows at the same time may cause problems."
While we will try to post updates when a particular hotel sells out, your best bet is the PassKey website itself. If a hotel is not listed, then it is very likely not available."

"Now that I got a room, what do I do with it?

First, please visit our Anthrocon 2018 Hotel Reservation Experience Survey and let us know your thoughts on the reservation experience.

Next, make travel plans!

Finally, if you need roommates, you could ask on our Facebook Room Share Group or perhaps on #roomshare on our Discord server."

Discord server:

============================

Oh, and here's a radical concept: the actual room-share/ ride-share fora on AC's actual messageboard still works!

All the fora are in that subgroup.

Rooms are available!
https://www.anthrocon.org/hotel

"A one-night deposit (room and tax) will be required for all hotel bookings; it will be charged soon after you make the reservation. That deposit will not be refundable if a reservation is canceled. Anthrocon strongly recommends that its members not book a room until they are reasonably certain that their plans will not change. The box to the right lists the hotels that have agreed to a special discounted rate for Anthrocon attendees. Note that this page is for information only, so you can see what you get for your money. Note that reservations must be made through the PassKey link provided in order to get the room rate."
