    According to the Hilton (right next door) you can start to reserve rooms directly through them or their website. They might not be the same price as the OnePeak reserved block of rooms but there are still rooms available at the hotels next to the convention centre.

    I booked there early but I check for friends from time to time and both times I checked the Hilton this week it says there are no rooms available for those dates.

    Just my two credits (cents) here.
    At CV, I stayed 8 long city blocks up the street to save on the rate.
    I had taken the trolley so that really wasn't too bad.
    At CVI, I stayed in the host hotel as a 501st Legion members and
    that was worth the extra $$. But I'm under the belief that the sooner
    you book, the more time I'll have in deciding on making reservations
    elsewhere if need be. Being closer to the convention did have its
    advantages. Celebrities, worldwide fans, restaurants, lounges and tons
    of folks in the lobby sharing their stories.

    I also recommend being as close to the con center as possible, if you can pay the extra money. It's worth a bit extra to be able to go back to your room, either for changing clothes, leaving stuff or simply just take a rest.

    I'm committed to getting into the Anaheim Marriott. Right next to the convention, and a garage to keep my car out of the sun. I'm hoping it's ground zero for unofficial convention activities. Their official website has been telling me for a few weeks that they have nothing available. I just called today and the very nice lady said they haven't opened up for booking yet.

    So I'm still optimistic. However, she said they haven't opened up the SWC block yet. Has anyone reserved a room there yet? Either as an individual or part of a group?

    The Hilton and the Marriott were the first to sell out back in August.

    Don't give up torjoreyri! Cancelations can occur between now and April.
    Some fans opt for lower rates within walking distance of the convention
    center and may cancel their room. And yes, a number of individuals have booked at the Anaheim
    Marriott by constantly checking for any openings. I do know that
    SW groups, like the 501st Legion and the Rebel Legion, waste no time
    booking at the Hilton and Marriott back in August. Don't give up the
    fight just yet because a number of those reservations were handled by
    another booking agency and those hotels have probably blocked off
    portions of their rooms.
    Book at another hotel and keep an eye open at the Marriott.
    May good luck be with you!
