As usual, it was nearly impossible to get into the Comic-Con hotel reservation site when it went live today. Eventually, I got through. Nearly everything was taken by then, but I managed to snag a room in the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina. It looks like an OK hotel, but it’s not in easy walking distance of the convention center. And it’s right by the airport, so it may be noisy. I can cancel the reservation, if I decide it’s not worth it, but I think it’ll do.
There are a lot of interesting comments on the experience in this entry on The Beat’s blog, and more in the official Con blog. Lots of grumbling about moving to Vegas and/or dumping Travel Planners. Maybe there’s something wrong with me, but I actually find the whole process kind of fun. It takes just enough effort that I feel like I’ve accomplished something when I’ve got the reservation made, but not so much effort that it annoys me.
