    I'm going, I missed all the others. I never new anything about them until of course they had passed. Im not missing this one, even if I have to hitch-hike. Thirty years of Star Wars, I was in 6th grade when Episode 4 came out. Im really excited about C4. Most of the members of the club Im in are going. We can't wait.

    Hey guys,

    A few of us from the "Commonwealth Cantina" FanForce (Richmond) are going to CIV, it'll be cool to see more Virginians going too. I strongly suggest keeping track of the Celebration 4 forum in the FanForce General category, it'll keep you updated on what's going on, and what we're all planning.

    Unfortunately, the Figueroa Hotel (which is one of the closest to the convention center) has just been BOOKED OUT. Though don't give up hope, there are alternatives to choose from. Find out more at the Celebration 4 forum.

    Hope to see you guys there!!! :D

    I've been checking out hotels and there are several within a mile of the convention center that are very cheap, under 70 bucks a night. Not the most posh but who cares, its not like you'd be spening any time at the hotel anyways. The only catch is that they wont let you book a room until a couple months in advance. =/

    I've also missed the other celebrations, mostly because I was in school and had no money. But this should be a blast. = D

    Someone that could look out for the hotels would be helpful. Like post periodically when hotels are taking bookings or are full. Im not a very good computer surfing person. Im lucky to do email. Even navigating this site is a challenge. heehheee

    Check out the Celebration IV Main strand. The mod from the LA Fanforce is giving great info on hotels. I've contacted several myself. If you want a cheap room within a mile of the convention center in a not so good area pm me and I can point you towards a few. The only ones booking right now are the two star or less ones. The Convention center housing bureau has put a block on several hotels that are reasonably priced (Aout 120-200 a night) and are within a block of the center.

    I went ahead and reserved a cheap one just incase when the block goes down and I'm not on the ball I will still have a back up. The cheap hotels allow you to cancel within 24 hours of when you're supposed to arrive without a fee.

    I am really trying to make this one.

    Plane Ticket Round Trip from VA to LA = $370
    Hotel stay 3 star = $50 per night x 4 = $200
    Food $100 + taxi $20 = $120
    $690 vacation money.

    $#@k it, im in.

    Try again on the hotel...unless you know something I dont....
    The Holiday Inn across from the Staples Center is $168/night for the Star Wars Convention rate. But they are not taking reservations right now.
    Where were you planning on staying. I am in Richmond and am def going but want to share a room somewhere. Let me know.
    Thanks

    This is the thread, scroll down to the Hotel Information part::
    http://boards.theforce.net/fanforce_star_wars_celebration_iv/b10611/24211222/p1/?0

    I'm going to email you as well, in case you dont check back here.

    All the hotels beside the Miyako, Figueroa, Radisson, and Omni are under the GenCon block, but the Figueroa and Omni are booked, I dunno if the other two are.
