You at the Hilton??
No, we have a room booked up the road a bit at the tropicana, where the hub's best friend booked. But, I was thinking it might be nice to be closer, as every step adds up for me. That, and being able to take the baby back to the hotel might be nice too. I was just wondering how close as I know they're right next door, but that doesn't mean it's less of a hike. At least, if it's anything like Vegas, you might wind up walking a mile just to get next door!

Hey isn't snuggle time a step up from the last celebration for you? For some reason I remember you saying something about sleeping on thr floor?
Close...we had three of us in a room with two double beds - the one bud got to have a bed to himself since he set up the reservation. So the other guy and I alternated between the other bed and a tiny cot in the middle of the room. I'm over 6ft4 and those nights on the cot sucked!!!

We ended up getting a room at the Anaheim Express Inn Maingate . It's less then 100 a night and about a 20 min. walk to the convention center. Made sure to get a room with a microwave and fridge so I wouldn't spend all my money on food at the convention center.

That's where the main entrance is to the convention center. But your guess is as good as mine regarding where Reed will have people entering to line up, where the meeting rooms are, where the exhibit hall entrance will be, etc.

We are staying in the tropicana by the DL entrance, i know they have shuttles from the park to the convetion center, and i think it was like $5 a person, it beats to have to try walk or park at the convention...and its like a 5 min ride, we also have a 1.5 yr old, so if we need to head back we can take the shuttle back to the DL entrance.

Between the Convention and DisneyLand, my wife and I decided to book a cheaper hotel. We're staying Extended Stay America, which is about 3 or 4 blocks away, so a little extra walking for me...

I booked a room at the Anaheim Plaza off of Katella and Harbor; about a block from convention center.

Driving from Las Vegas, so bringing a car full of vintage goodness to sell and trade!

Hope this is ok to post.

Just as an FYI if anyone has the Courtyard Anaheim check with Marriott directly. I saved $491 on my reservation by just booking directly with Marriott and prepaying. Marriott directly is cheaper then onpeak on every night except Friday and Saturday.

Uh . . . speaking of Marriott, at the Anaheim Marriott there are a couple of interesting places.

There are so many places to eat and shop in Anaheim, I did a quick sweep in the surrounding area of a couple of well known establishments. Listed below are some familiar places you'll recognize.

ANAHEIM MARRIOTT - On property, Starbuck's, JW's Steakhouse, Cafe Del Sol

South of Marriott by mere feet - Denny's

1/2 mile North of Marriott - Disneyland, The Shop at Anaheim Gardenwalk, Bar Louie, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., P.F. Chang's China Bistro, The Cheesecake Factory, Cinemafusion 14/IMAX . . . and more

1 mile South of Marriott - McDonald's, IHOP . . . more

3/4 mile South of Marriott - Outback Steakhouse, Target, Walgreen's, Vons Grocery Store, Joe's Crab Shack, Grand China Restaurant . . . and more

Food trucks/wagons, I've heard, are also aplenty around the convention center.

I've got no worries and saving money not having to get a hotel. I have an old friend that lives out there so im staying with them and they are coming to the show for their first time. So i get to bbq and eat good home cook meals instead of fast food.

I may have an extra reservation at the Marriott next to convention center or the Clarion right there as well. If you are interested, please let me know.

I have 2 rooms at the Anaheim Hilton that I no longer need (ended up renting a house with some friends). Just checking if anyone wants them before I cancel my reservation. PM me if interested.

Hey man was wondering if you were still looking for a partner to share the room with. Currently I'm booked at the hilton lone wolfing it, but would much rather split the costs with someone.

Sooooo we're thinking about moving hotels to the Hilton so we're closer to the action. We MIGHT have a friend split it with us, but it's not guaranteed. Think it's worth paying double what we're paying what we paid for our other hotel that is a bit further away? (There's no cancellation fee)

I think only you can answer that. Is the extra money going to mean there are things you wanted to do that you'll have to pass on now? Is the convenience of walling across the street to your hotel, versus 3/4 of a mile to your hotel worth that money? To me it is, but everyone's situation is different.

If my wife wouldn't kill me for spending 3x the amount on a hotel I would totally switch to the Hilton.

I upgraded to the Hilton as well, and thanks to another RS member I got a great deal out of it. Snoogins.

I'll be staying at the LaQuinta Inn. It's half a mile away so I'm surprised no one else has chimed in for that hotel.
