Like many of you out there, I’ve already started thinking about a hotel for next year. Since I enjoyed the stay at Hotel Solamar, I sent an email asking when I might be able to book for next year. Sadly, I was told that “At this time all of our inventory for next year is being held by Comic-Con.” It looks like other hotels are in the same spot. Hilton San Diego Bayfront posted this on their Facebook page:
Several of you have asked about booking for Comic Con 2012, so here’s the info we have at this time. Our Comic Con group rate for standard rooms in 2012 is $286/night and you will have the opportunity to book when official housing opens next year. As more information comes through, we will keep you updated here. Also, we will be announcing the winner of our 4 Night Comic Con 2012 Giveaway on August 19th! There’s still time to enter!
It looks like snagging a deal for San Diego Comic Con without using Travel Planners might be a thing of the past. Of course, you do have other options like vacation rentals. If you have a large party, this might save you a few bucks here and there. In most cases vacation rentals have a kitchen to use which can save you money on eating out and some include a parking spot as well. Of course each rental is different and be sure to read all the fine print.
Have any of you lucked out on being able to rebook your hotel?
