As moderator, I've edited a couple of posts in this thread to remove comments and information of a personal nature regarding a hotel employee.

It's ok to complain about issues and incidents, but the portions I've removed are overly personal and don't belong in the convention's public forum. Remember, Kumoricon interacts with the hotel as an entity, not their individual employees, and employers are responsible for employee actions.

You may express your opinion about the hotel and the way you are treated, but if you have issues with a specific hotel employee that you feel needs follow-up, please privately email hotel@kumoricon.org with the relevant information.

Thanks.

This is my 5th year at K-con, and while I did find the hotel staff much more high strung than usual, there were also more people than usual. I did experience first hand the hostility of one of the hotel staff, but you have to remember that they're watching after all of us to make sure nothing happens for hours at a time. And you can't deny that many con goers don't have the most patience. I definitely heard one guest shout profanity at a hotel staff member, though they ignored it. They get upset if they're going to miss an event because the elevator person won't allow one more person on, with good reason. But there really is nothing that the staff can do; these rules are set in place, and its for your/guests that aren't part of the con's safety.
Getting upset at the hotel staff won't do anything, and this year, put yourself in their shoes for a moment, with all that chaos, and frankly, some nasty attitudes, around you. I know I wouldn't last 2 hours with all of it around me.

All in all, if hotel staff are rubbing you the wrong way, just walk away, and do something else. If they're blocking the only way down to an event (which is very unlikely :|), there's nothing you can do about it, and there are a lot of people in the same boat as you.
Honestly, cons are meant to be a pleasant experience, and you shouldn't let a stressed out staff member ruin that for you.

Have you thought of becoming staff? We need people like you with that personality

Everything that went wrong in 09 will hopefully be talked about and resolved, and the hotel staff now know what chaos incarnate is like. XD

In all honesty, 2010 can only be better than 2009. I wasn't sure if I was going, but I decided that if I didn't go, I'd regret it.

I Can Guarantee this, Registration will be much better this year, i was in the front of the line last year, i know how bad it was. So, i redesigned it, and got turned down, and redesigned it again, and was approved. Sat and sun reg lines will be for the most part covered, so no standing in the weather.

We have worked hard to make this year better than last year. If you have any questions, ask a yojimbo, they are there to assist you.

Wow that's a negative attitude. Go for the fun of it? You've already paid money so it'd be a waste not to. Plus even if you're going alone there's loads to do and you'll be far from bored.

It's going to be my second year, and always the 'epic fun' thing to do before school starts with a few friends.
