Overflow Hotels
« on: June 06, 2014, 08:28:57 pm »
Does anyone have any idea when or if the overflow hotels will be added this year? My group and I need three rooms and sadly missed the window to book the two main hotels due to conflicts. We're hesitant to buy our tickets at this point. I'm really hoping there will be overflow hotels or we won't be able to go.

I agree, this is a huge problem. My sister and I tried for a room a month or two ago, and it was still booked full. This is just crazy, and we're not sure we can afford the hotel that's a a mile away and almost twice as expensive. Hopefully they can figure this dilemma out, because this honestly sucks.


My sister and I only need one bed, so any room will do for us. If anyone is giving up one of these rooms, would they be so kind as to contact us? Please?

Yea same here people! Please let me know too if you're giving up a room at the Hilton, Red Lion, or even the EconoLodge just a couple of blocks away from the Hilton. I'm looking for a 2-bed room for me and a friend (maybe) :)

Okay so apparently the SpringHill Suites is affiliated with Kumori this year! My friend made our reservations and they told us that there would be a shuttle going from there to the convention. Hopefully this helps people!

Thanks ImpulseCosplay for that information, however would that be the  SpringHill Suites on 1421 SE Tech Center Drive?

Because that's like 20 minutes East of the Hilton.

How will this shuttle thing work and how did your friend find out about this when there's no mention of it on the official Kumoricon site or Facebook?

I know Kumoricon told me a while back about having shuttles for the overflow hotels, but I can't imagine how that will work because there will be lots of people who will want to go at different times and whatnot. It sounds like a big ole jumbled mess to me :-/

As bad as it sounds, I'd rather walk 11 blocks to and from the Comfort Inn. I mean unless I forget something really important or there's an emergency or something, I'd only have to walk in the morning and at night. I could just bring a backpack with me with all my cosplay gear and other stuff, including mace or pepper spray lol.

Actually it worked really well. There weren't many people last year that actually stayed at the hotel. About every half hour or so there would be a shuttle making rounds between Kumori and Springhill. It worked really well for us because we prefer to be a little farther away from everything. My friend found out because she called the hotel to have them confirm if they were going to be doing the same hing that they did last year and they said that they were. I'm not sure why it isn't listed on the Kumori page but that may just be because it wasn't updated yet.

Okay, I didn't know that particular hotel was available for overflow last year even though I went last year. Your friend was pretty smart for calling them this year haha. I really hope the fact that the hotel isn't listed yet isn't a form of foreshadowing for things to come, because that would be really bad :-/

I hope someone just dropped the ball and has forgotten to update the hotel page. It would be awful if this means something happened between Kumori and the hotels. But I hope you can get a hotel room for yourself!
