Yes, you can! I might hold off getting the badges just a little longer until I hear back from this one other member who had wanted to purchase for 3 people.

Please don't double post; you can edit your first post if you wish to add something. Happy

And we're almost but not quite at 20; right now we have 19 people. As I just mentioned above, I'm waiting to hear back from another member who had wanted to purchase for 3 people. I can wait maybe another day or so to see if anyone else wants to still be in our group.

Many more airlines go to O'Hare than Midway, but Midway does have a lot of Southwest flights, which could be cheaper. And you could take the L all the way from Midway to O'Hare. So, it's a tradeoff between getting a (possibly) cheaper flight to Midway, or paying a little more for the convenience of O'Hare for getting to Anime Central.

You could also just stay somewhere far from the convention center, for example downtown, and just take the L to the convention. Then the convenience of O'Hare is less of a factor. I haven't started looking for lodging, but I bet the hotels near the convention center will be pretty expensive.
I've heard about how big O'hare is and it's mainly the size of the airport that's really making me a big scared to actually fly there. Although, to be honest, I didn't even know there was a second airport in the Chicago area until my mother mentioned it. Weighing out which airport would be better is something to research and consider. I'm not too worried about using public transportation as long as Chicago has at least a half-way decent public transit system.

Thank you for the advice~ It's definitely something to think about. c:

shirokun wrote:So does that make 20+ people willing to PayPal?


Oh and I wouldn't mind splitting a hotel room with someone, they're damn expensive... Comfort Inn is the cheapest one on ACEN's website which is $120 Single Occupancy and $130 Double Occupancy.

Quadruple is $160, split four ways is a great price for a decent hotel.

Wishful thinking eh? lol
The hotels listed on ACEN's website are probably only the ones who have partnered with them. The packages they're offering are probably just a discount on the rooms if you book with ACEN, which probably won't be too big of a discount but it's worth calling the hotels and asking about ACEN's blocked rooms and such.

Typically, you can find cheaper rates at locally owned motels over chained hotels like Comfort Inn. There's probably some locally owned hotels near the convention or in a 1 to 2 mile radius of it (or in another nearby suburb city) that would be easy to get to the convention from with some walking or buses~

Although that's just a guess right now since I haven't looked much at the hotels in the area haha. ^.^" It's worth looking around at more locally owned hotels for cheaper prices, and a lot of locally owned ones are pretty nice as well. c:

Okay, well I messed this all up. See post above lol.

I've flown through O'hare several times (although I've never been outside it) and it's not bad at all. If you've been through ATL, DFW or MNP(? Minneapolis) then I wouldn't worry too much. I can't remember but I think DFW might be smaller, not sure.

As for public transportation from what I've been told by people who've lived there is that it's really good, so I don't think getting around should be an issue.

And if any of us going to Chicago are meeting up at or around the airport then it would be even better. I certainly wouldn't mind as I've never been outside the airport (^^).

The Hotel we booked - the ACEN rate saved us over $100 off the normal rate.  

Also Hotels vary widely in quality.  For work I almost always end up in Marriots, for leisure travel I like Hyatts but even they vary greatly in quality and cost.    So I have a floor in quality I won't go below.  But many of you just want a bed.

But since I travel a fair amount I'm also interested in rewards programs.

For others not on the ACEN page trip advisor is a good site:

http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotels-g36630-Rosemont_Illinois-Hotels.html

Will give you a ranked list of most/all of the hotels in Rosemont.  But do pay attention to location.  And factor in transportation costs.  Lowest I found for 15-17 of may was 95$ at a Best Western.  Guessing that's prepay in full.

Here's a list of all hotels in rosemont:
http://www.rosemont.com/where-to-sleep/rosemont-hotels/

We're in a 1st tier suburb which affects cost.  But at we're in a town with more hotel rooms then residents so that helps.



EDIT: Minneapolis airport is MSP.

EDIT: Minneapolis airport is MSP.
I have to admit that giving $100 is a pretty generous thing for a hotel to do. x) From my experience in the industry, we usually don't give that much off a normal rate because we need to make a profit as well. It actually does surprise me to hear that, although that's a very good surprise haha. x) I'll try calling to some of the hotels whenever I'm able to find the time to. It seems like it good a lot of good after reading your post. ^.^

Mhm that's true. I'm not looking for much in a hotel other than a place to sleep, shower, and hopefully be provided breakfast. I really just want a cheap hotel since I intend to spend most of the time outside the hotel anyway. xP A cheap hotel is typically fine for me as long as it's clean. c: Plus, I'm going to swing this with a very small and pretty tight budget, so upscale places like The Marriott aren't really in the budget for me. x)

Thank you for the advice~ :3 It's very helpful actually and gives a lot to think about. ^.^

Factoring in the travel time from hotel to destination is a very big thing to consider when looking at hotels, especially if one is unable to drive. I always looked for hotels in the general area of whatever I'm travelling for (both L.A and Anaheim hotels are going to be close to the venues). But public transit is something not out of the question. It's typically not too much and if Chicago's transit system is anything like San Francisco's, there's also the possibility of weekly passes or transfers or something. It's a lot of research to do to know the area and decide which hotels are best for certain people. c:
