    For everyone on about the Holiday Inn the convention center Housing bureau has put a block on the hotel, they should be letting people book in a few weeks. I'm going to be calling them everyday until they drop the block, then I'll post here and let everyone know.

    The Holiday Inn is blocked off for the celebrities and GEN-CON workers, I sincerely doubt that they will have very many open rooms. I would be surprised if anyone actually got in, but it could happen.

    Amidala081499, I want to thank you again for starting this thread. With the Fig all booked and with the HI all blocked, reality has set in. Thank you, thank you, thank you for getting us to act!

    It is so much fun to "start C4 early". Let try to keep this thread going!

    I wonder how many of the Fig folks frequented your thread and heeded your words. I am sure you will be a popular person at the Fig come May 2007!

    [:D] Lufta Shif

    I am very glad that I heeded the words to book now and so did several of my friends (Lukeskiewalker, MaraJadeRaven, and Jedi Dajuan that I know of so far)

    I did not realize the hotel was this large, from the pictures it looks to be a small hotel. WOW, I can just see a giant Star Wars banner on the side of the hotel...maybe they will put our chest box badges on the side...that would be awesome.

    What can we do to relieve our fear? Keep calling to confirm our reservations? No, as I am afraid the manager will get angry and cancel. Oh what to do, what to do... [face_hypnotized]

    "Fear is the path to the Dark Side. Fear leads to anger; anger leads to hate; hate leads to suffering."

    perhaps we should meditate?

    All you really need to do is call the hotel a week before you arrive in order to confirm your reservations. (but if it makes you feel any better call a month and a week ahead... never can be too safe). [face_peace]
    As for the advertising, it all adds to the experience that is C4!

    I'm giving Uno another month and I'm going to call to verify. He's actually very good with responding to emails. Then I'll do it again another month or so from then and so on. We're very lucky to have rooms at the Fig. While everyone else is riding on a crowded shuttle, we'll be a block away!!!!

    I am very happy with my reservations. We scored big on this one. C4 is less than 5 min away on foot. :D I will be calling every couple of months as well. Don't want to lose my spot. LOL

    I wanted to get in at the Fig, but missed it. I am still hoping for at least a few nights at the Holiday Inn. If not, I have a room all booked and ready to go somewhere else. I would like to stop the Fig one night and hang out with my celebration IV posse though. All my peeps up for welcoming a visitor in your lobby?

    Everyone close your eyes, breathe deep and repeat after me,

    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
