Just a heads up for everyone that is planning on attending DragonCon 2009. You want to go ahead & get your hotel rooms reserved. The rooms are going fast. I just called the Marriott Marquis to reserve my room for next year & they are already sold out of the block for next years DragonCon. I still got a room but at the regular rate instead of the DragonCon rate. Not sure about the Hilton or the Hyatt as to how many rooms in the DragonCon block they have left at the moment.

Like I mentioned just now up in the DragonCon section, not only does Neil have a few extra rooms (best known bet at the moment for staying in an attached host hotel - thanks again for my room there, Neil!), but there are overflow hotels in the downtown ATL area and many other options outside downtown which are only a MARTA ride away from the con, if you aren't bringing a dozen costumes along to the con. Both of those choices will be significantly cheaper than any of the host hotels, as well, if that's a consideration for you. I've heard of people staying a block or two from the con and spending $90/night total, vs $160 for the room + $24 valet parking per night.

Reserve ANYWHERE now, and keep trying to pick up someone's cancellation as the months go on. There ARE still options, but due to the football game, the NASCAR race, and the airline convention all happening in ATL that weekend, you need to be aggressive about pursuing them.

Looking forward to seeing my RL friends again at DC this year.

I'm bringing my own Jedi this year - not super special, but I'll try and visit the table and say hi!
