Apparently the Holiday Inn has been instructed to block all rooms off for the convention - it's my suspicion they won't be available except through convention housing. And we don't know when that will be starting up - guess we'll have to keep an eye on the SW.com news updates. I hope the Fig is reliable - but when I called the first day he said he didn't have any queen beds, so I booked twins, but the next day I called again to add another room and he said he had a king room, and he also said "my reservation hadn't found its way into the system yet" - which didn't sound so cool. Plus the site says the time for cancellation prior to check in is 7 days, he told me 14 days on the phone, and he told another friend of mine a month! And those reviews look pretty deterring to me. We're considering our reservations as not secure, and will book elsewhere as soon as the blocks open up.
