Page history last edited by Zan 11 months, 3 weeks ago

 Note: The "Last Updated" time at the top of this page may not reflect the actual age of some of the information presented. The sections "Host Hotels" and "Overflow hotels" pull data from other wiki pages and are updated separately. 

 

Unless you're only coming for one day, odds are you're going to need someplace to sleep. Hotels at DragonCon are divided into 2 main categories, Host Hotels and Overflow Hotels.

 

Below are the official hotels as well as some that are close to the convention or the connecting MARTA mass transit rail system.

 


 

 

Host Hotels 

(Below contents from the Host Hotels page of this wiki)

Host hotels are where the convention activities are actively held. In these hotels, you will find Registration, Programming Tracks, the dealer rooms, and more. Also, these hotels will have DragonConTV. Rooms in the Marriott are the hardest to get. Hilton rooms are considered the most quiet of the main 3 hotels. Westin and Sheraton rooms are a little further away from the main 3.

 

The official Host Hotels for DragonCon 2016 are: 

 

 

 

 

Overflow Hotels

Be sure to check out the Official DragonCon overflow hotel page for rate codes!

(Below contents from the Overflow Hotels page of this wiki)

Updated Jan. 30, 2013

 

 

 

Google Map of Overflow Hotels

 

These hotels have been official overflow hotels in years past but are no longer listed as of 2013. Space may still be available.

 

 

See the official list of Overflow hotels on the Dragon*Con website

 

Hotels that are not partnered with Dragon*Con but are local to the convention area.

 

Note:  only refers to discounted Dragon*Con group rate rooms at host and official overflow hotels. Availability of room at non-discounted rates may be available. Check with desired hotel for full price availability!  

 

The Hotel I want is Sold Out. Now what?

Ever since 2013 there has been a veritable land rush on host hotels. All five host hotels sell out nearly a year in advance. This is expected to continue in the future. If you really want to stay in a particular hotel, check various forums or the dragonconrooms Live Journal group. The https://www.facebook.com/DragonConHotelConnection page does infrequent, very informative posts about hotel availability and booking news. https://www.facebook.com/groups/dragonconroomsgroup also has room-booking news but that is not their primary purpose. They are more focused on helping people find rooms and roommates. You are more likely to find available room share options or entire reservations to take over at https://www.facebook.com/groups/dragonconroomsgroup.

 

Also, people will occasionally post room share offers to Twitter using the #DragonCon hash tag.  Some hotels will add rooms back to the block due to cancellations (not the Marriott though). Periodically calling host hotels can net you a coveted convention rate room. Worst case, some may have a full price room available which will still give you the con room experience, but at a steeper price. If you do go the full rate route, considering joining AAA to get a discount and consider booking for the next year at check out (The Hilton usually offers this option to departing guests). Also, consider joining that hotel's loyalty program. If you're paying 4-5 times the price, might as well rack up the points or airline miles.

 

The official page http://www.dragoncon.org/travel/hotels/ (formerly http://www.dragoncon.org/?q=host_hotels_view , there was a website redesign in July 2019) is well known for crashing after a booking link has been posted. So always save the link information as soon as you see it, don't count on the page to stay up when you need it the most. Also, information there is frequently not updated in a timely manner. Last year's info is frequently left on there with no indication that it is old information so it can easily be mistaken for current information when actually it is outdated. By the time the new info is up, a hotel can already be sold out. This is often the case with hotels that you can book with directly and are not using the Passkey system to book. While http://www.dragoncon.org/travel/hotels is the only official Dragon Con source, calling your preferred hotel directly and relying on unofficial social media resources will give you more accurate and timely information. Do not expect to see hotel information released by Dragon Con in a press release, email blast, or in their app. On rare occasions the Dragon Con official social media accounts will share news about hotels but it sometimes happens AFTER the news has already been spread by unofficial resources, reducing your chances of getting a room.

 

It is up to you to decide which hotels you may be willing to stay at and do your own research every year as to how they are taking bookings. This can and does change from year to year. Some hotels may give preference to those who stayed with them the previous year for Dragon Con. This is referred to as a legacy booking.  Just because they have done this in the past (Hilton, Hyatt, Sheraton) is no guarantee of what they will do in the future. When you are at Dragon Con, a good strategy is to ask at the reservations desk when you are in a host hotel. If they don't have the info at the start of the weekend then keep asking every day until they know something. Ask if they have an informational flyer you can take with you. As of August 2018, the Sheraton has discontinued their legacy program. Legacy hotels send an email to the reservation holder with instructions about how to book for the following year. The procedures can change each year. If you don't follow the procedures then your room is lost and it may be impossible to get back.

 

Another alternative is to simply choose another hotel. There are many hotels in the downtown area that are not officially part of the convention, but have room. We've tried to list them all, but it is easy to miss one. Also, consider hotels near the airport or in Midtown.  If you can't get a downtown location, look for locations that are adjacent to MARTA, in particular the rail portion. DragonCon is fortunate to have a MARTA subway/train station right in the midst of the area.

 

Some members rent nearby condominiums. Some locals, it has been reported, flee the area when we roll in and a few of them place their condos up for rent. These offer all the luxury of home while being near the convention. VRBO.com is one source, but there are many. Real estate agencies in the area may also be able to arrange weekend rentals. Airbnb is a popular option but be careful with this and any other short term rental services. Every year people report finding an excellent deal on price only to have their reservation cancelled at the last minute - sometimes they day before Dragon Con starts. The homeowner then relists the room for a higher price. Yes, this is against the rules but it happens every year. To protect yourself, do your research and be aware of the risks.

 

Also keep in mind that you're competing for rooms with other convention goers as well as college football and NASCAR fans. Most of the football crowd will be closer to the stadium and most of the NASCAR fans will either be camping at the speedway or towards the southern end of the city. A few will venture towards the hotels in the downtown area. The hotel operators know about all of these events and rates will be increased accordingly.

 

General Hotel Notes 

  • With the completion of the Marriott renovations in 2008, the Hyatt and Marriott Marquis are typically the busiest hotels.
  • The Hyatt is the hotel that will most likely run into issues with the fire marshal.
    • If large crowds are not your thing, you might consider spending more time in the Hilton, Sheraton and Westin.  It is not uncommon for there to be literally thousands of people in the Hyatt and Marriott lobbies from time to time.
  • The Hyatt has five elevators in the main part of the hotel. If you choose to use these, you will be able to get to know all of the other people that are waiting quite well - elevator waits can take more than 30 minutes to go up to your room. Plan accordingly - the Hyatt is not the hotel where you should expect to run to your room every fifteen minutes. Whenever possible, take the stairs.
  • All of the Marriott Marquis elevators go to the 10th floor. There are no hotel rooms on the 10th floor, this is just a wide open area. The designated usage of the 10th floor can vary each year.
  • For social smokers, the Hyatt pool is the place to be. The pool is closed but it is a fun hangout place.
  • Checking out of a DragonCon primary hotel on Monday morning is a special experience. It may take a long time if you have so much stuff that you need a cart. You really should consider moving your belongings out on Sunday, or early Monday morning, or plan to have a bellhop deal with it for you (which might take several hours). While DragonCon is a special place for you and tens of thousands of your best friends, we are also all checking out at once, and this tends to overwhelm the host hotels year after year. Checking out on Tuesday is much easier and more relaxing.
  • NEVER leave your hotel without your room key and DragonCon badge. The Hyatt, Marriott, and possibly some other hotels will require that you either have a hotel room key or a Dragon Con badge to get into the hotel. Security will check badges at multiple entrances and exits including the skywalks/ habitrails. When the fire marshal shuts down entry to the Hyatt, entry opens up first to those with room keys. You could be locked out of the Hyatt for 90 minutes, or longer, if you aren't prepared.
  • When you try to take shortcuts (i.e. the Hyatt pool entrance), DC security needs to see your badge.

 

Deposit and Payment polices

2019 Host Hotels  

4 out of 5 host hotels now require full prepayment for your stay before you check in and it is all non-refundable. Only the Hilton did not take the rest of your payment until check in.  

  • Hyatt Regency Atlanta, 265 Peachtree Street NE Atlanta, GA 30303. One night non-refundable deposit due at the time of booking, the rest of the full amount of your stay is due Aug 1, 2019. If your credit card left on file when this final payment is due is expired, you may get an email from the Hyatt giving you 24 hours to pay. If payment is not received, your room will be cancelled.
  • Hilton Atlanta, 255 Courtland Street NE Atlanta, GA 30303. One night non-refundable deposit due at the time of booking, the rest of the full amount of your stay is due at check in. 
  • Marriott Marquis Atlanta, 265 Peachtree Center Ave Atlanta, GA 30303. One night non-refundable deposit due at the time of booking, the rest of the full amount of your stay is due on March 1, 2019. If your credit card left on file when this final payment is due is expired, your room will be cancelled with no advance notice.
  • Sheraton Atlanta Hotel, 165 Courtland Street Atlanta, GA 30303. Full prepayment (all non-refundable) for the entire stay is required at the time of booking.
  • Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel, 210 Peachtree Street Atlanta, GA 30303. One night non-refundable deposit due at the time of booking, the rest of the full amount of your stay is due on April 3, 2019. If your credit card left on file when this final payment is due is expired, your room will be cancelled.

 

2020 Deposit and Payment polices

To be announced. Be prepared for hotel prices to go up. Deposit and payment policies tend to get more strict over time.   

 

Moving Between Hotels 

  • Moving between the Marriott Marquis and the Hyatt is pretty easy - usually. As long as you have a DragonCon badge, you can walk out the front entrance of the Marriott, cross the street (an APD uniformed officer is typically there acting as a crossing guard), and walk up the rear (pool) entrance of the Hyatt, and vice versa. In 2011 a bridge was added that goes from the Marriott's Atrium to the Hyatt's lobby level.
  • Moving between the Hilton and Marriott was simplified with the addition of a bridge between the 2nd floor of the Hilton and the Marquis level of the Marriott
  • Moving between the Hilton and Hyatt, without going outside, is possible. From the Hilton, go to the 2nd floor. Take the bridge to the Marriott. From here you can either go up 2 floors, take the bridge to the Hyatt, or up 1 floor and take the tube to the Peachtree Center Food court and another tube to the Hyatt.
    • For the Hyatt to Hilton, reverse the directions. Bridge to Marriott, down 2 floors, and bridge to Hilton
    • The Marriott can be bypassed if you're willing to risk a little exposure to the outside. Cross John Portman (Formerly Harris) Bvld to the Courtland St. Parking Garage. Take the elevator to the 7th floor. A covered walkway will take you to the Peachtree Center Food Court. From here, a tube to the Hyatt is available.
  • Moving to the Sheraton from the Hyatt, Marriott, or Hilton,  you'll want to go down to the Hilton. Walk down Courtland St for 2 blocks and the Sheraton will be on the same side as the Hilton.
  • From the main 3 to the Westin, there are a couple of options.
    • Proceed to the front of the Hyatt. Cross Peachtree St, and proceed left for a few blocks.
    • From the Hilton, the easiest method is to go through Peachtree Center via Courtland St parking garage (bridge on 7th floor), turn left once you get to the food court, and go out the doors at the end. Turn right, (look up, and you'll see the Westin). Proceed a short walk and you'll enter on the Westin's 6th floor. 
      • Alternatively, you can go up the escalators at the food court and go out the revolving door and turn left. 
      • Also, if you need to pick something up along the way, you exit through the CVS and turn left.
  • Between the Westin and Sheraton, proceed along Andrew Young Bvld NE for 2 blocks. East to the Sheraton, West to the Westin.

How to Transfer or Trade a Hotel Reservation

This is very detailed, but well worth reading closely.

 

NEVER use the word "transfer" when calling a hotel.

 

The cost of a non-refundable deposit can be anywhere from $300-$600 (one or two nights at the hotel) up the the cost of the entire stay. Unless you make over $300 an hour, this is worth an hour of your time.

 

Can I transfer a hotel room? Yes! Most official sources and confirmation emails from the hotels will say "Rooms are non-transferable." But this is not true. As long as you NEVER use the word "transfer" when talking to hotel staff, this will work. Patience, politeness, and persistence are the key. Here is how I have successfully done it for years. Calling the hotel usually gets better results because modifying your reservation online is often disabled.

 

NEVER cancel a hotel room at the Dragon Con rate. It will go back to the full rate, costing the next person 2x or more. Why do the hotels do this? Because they can, and due to strong demand, it is more profitable for them.

 

Always transfer your extra rooms to a fellow attendee. There is always someone who wants a room, especially at the host hotels.

 

COMMUNITIES TO HELP YOU FIND A ROOM, ROOMMATES, OR A RIDE

To first-timers it might seem odd there are so many places you can go to for help getting a room or finding roommates but keep in mind all of these resources are fan-run and are not connected to Dragon Con. Each of these links is filling a slightly different niche. Here is how I'd describe them.

 

All of the host hotels for Dragon Con sell out nearly a year in advance. All of the host hotels and many other hotels charge a non-refundable deposit to get a room at the discounted Dragon Con rate. Rooms at the full rate can cost 2-3x more. If your plans change and you can't go to Dragon Con, you won't get a refund from the hotel. But there are always people who will be happy to take your room and pay you back for the non-refundable deposit.

(Full disclosure: The author of this section is one of the admins here.) This fb group also has a very informative Pinned Post and Announcements section with a lot of good advice and FAQs. Helpful tips are posted regularly. There is a master list of everyone who is looking for a room or roommate - this called the Pinned Post Announcement and it is always first post at the top of the group.

Many huge online communities (such as reddit) have subsections for Dragon Con attendees.

 

Step 1: Money

 

First, pay the other person for the room.

 

It is against convention etiquette to ever profit by selling or trading your room to someone else. If someone asks you to give them more money than the cost of the deposit that they've already paid, don't do it. They are preying on your desperation and ignorance. If they are part of an online community, follow their procedures and report their behavior. Find an honest person to deal with, there are plenty out there.

 

Many reservations have non-refundable deposits. The hotel isn't going to give someone their deposit back if they cancel. Why should they? It is pure profit for them. If you take their room and pay them back the deposit then you are both helping each other out. Win/Win!

 

To trade a room with someone else, first calculate the difference in the non-refundable deposits you may have paid. If you paid $600 and they paid $650, you will owe them $50. Pay them and ask them to confirm they received payment. As of 2015 some hotels (The Hyatt, Marriott and maybe others) have said in their confirmation emails that they may charge a $50 fee to change the credit card info or "make any modifications" to your reservation. In my experience they are inconsistent about enforcing this.

 

Both sides should protect themselves. If you are giving your room away, don't provide the confirmation number until you have been paid. If you are getting a room, pay with a method that will allow you to get your money back if there is a problem. For example, PayPal (don't use "send money to a friend"), a Credit Card, or another method where a third party can get involved if there is a dispute.

 

CREDIT CARD ADVICE

 

NEVER use the word "transfer" when calling a hotel. Simply say you need to update the card on file. Keep it short and sweet. If necessary, tell them you got a new card.

 

NEVER use a debit card, a check, money order, or anything else with no buyer protection unless you have no other choice. Credit cards allow you to dispute the charges if the hotel makes a mistake such as charging you too much. Make sure you understand the risks and benefits of the payment option you choose.

 

NEVER give your credit card number to anyone but the hotel.

 

NEVER leave your credit card on file for a room you aren't staying in.

 

NEVER leave an expired credit card on file with a hotel.

This is to prevent your room from being cancelled with no advance warning because your credit card is past the expiration date. The hotels will tell you this doesn't occur but it happens to a few people every year. Your room could be suddenly cancelled with no notification if they mistakenly try to run the credit card anytime during the year. If no valid, current form of payment is found on file you may lose your room with no warning or chance to get it back. Once your room is cancelled then the Dragon Con rate is lost. It is very time consuming and difficult to get a discounted room back from a sold-out hotel - if you even can, there is no guarantee. They may only offer you a room at a non-host hotel farther away, something else in that chain.

 

ALWAYS check the expiration date on your credit card before making a reservation.

To be on the safe side, I always recommend using a credit card with an expiration date of the year of the convention, October or later, to hold your room. This way you never have to think about it again unless you get a new card. If you don't have a card with an expiration date of October or later, request one from your bank/credit card company and put it on file as soon as possible. When you try to replace the card on file the hotel staff often won't want to do it. They will tell you that there is no need because once your deposit has come out your card will not be charged again until you check out. They will only ask for a new card to put on file when you check in. They often resist putting a new card one file and refuse to do it. Be persistent. Keep trying and calling back until you get that new card on file.

As an alternate method, you can also make a second payment (a small amount should be fine) with a new card and then it will be on file. As long as you have at least one current, valid form of payment on file you should be okay. Some people have paid for their entire room in advance to ensure they don't have any issues. That isn't necessary but can be helpful in certain circumstances depending on your roommates and whatever arrangement you've agreed upon. If you pay for your whole room in advance, keep an eye on your account to ensure that you aren't accidentally double-charged when a payment deadline comes due. If this happens, you will need to call the hotel directly to get your money back.

 

What do I do if the hotel doesn't want to change the credit card on file?

This sometimes happens. They may tell you that updating the credit card on file it isn't necessary after the initial deposit comes out. But they aren't the ones risking losing their room by leaving an expired credit card on file (see above). NEVER use the word "transfer" when talking to them. Simply say you need to update the card on file. Keep it short and sweet. If necessary, tell them you got a new card. 

 

Be polite and persistent. Keep calling and talking to different people. Call different phone numbers. If you tried the local 404 number and they couldn't help you then try their 1-800 reservations line. If you are a rewards member then try that number. Be persistent and keep calling different numbers at different times of the day until you get it done. Better safe than sorry.

 

Step 2: Transferring a Reservation - The Super-Short Version

 

NEVER use the word "transfer" when calling a hotel.

 

This should take about 15-30 minutes, depending on the speed of customer service at the hotel.

 

1) If you are giving your room to someone, first have them pay you back for the non-refundable deposit. Verify your bank account has received the money before moving on to the next steps. If you are paying for a room, use a method that allows you to dispute the charge if needed such as PayPal or a credit card.

 

2) If you are giving your room to someone, call the hotel directly and put the other person's name on your reservation as a roommate.

 

3) When calling the hotel directly, use their local phone number (area code 404) and ask to speak to IN HOUSE reservations or group reservations or group sales. This department may have different names at different hotels. They are generally open M-F 9-5 EST.  Make SURE you aren't being transferred to an outside call center, they won't be able to help you. 

 

4) Have the hotel send you the confirmation email again. This may or may not have the new person's name on it. Sometimes a roommate name only shows up online or in the hotel's system. Ask the hotel about this.

 

5) Now email the person taking over the room their confirmation email. This will have the reservation number on it. In your email ask the new person to call the hotel and remove your name from the reservation, replace your credit card with theirs, and change the email address on file so they will get any future emails from the hotel. If there are any changes they wish to make, such as date changes or room requests, they should do this over the phone as well. Ask them to tell you when this has all been done. Do NOT try to make any changes to the reservation online. This is usually not allowed and you risk losing your room if you try. Always call the hotel directly (see #3) to make any changes to your reservation.

 

56 If you were the original reservation holder, call the hotel and verify that your name, credit card, and email address are no longer on file. Tell the new person this has been done.

 

6) Congrats, you are done!

 

 

Step 2: Transferring a Reservation - Complete Version with Helpful Tips and Tricks

 

NEVER use the word "transfer" when calling a hotel.

 

Both sides should agree to do this on the same day. Set aside the time, stay in communication during all steps. Set aside one hour to get this done.

The cost of a non-refundable deposit can be anywhere from $300-$600 (one or two nights at the hotel) up the the cost of the entire stay. Unless you make over $300 an hour, this is worth an hour of your time.

 

CALLING THE HOTEL  

 

  1. Call the hotel directly. Their local phone number will have a 404 area code.  Make sure they know you are calling about a Dragon Con reservation. They are generally open M-F 9-5 EST.  Make SURE you aren't being transferred to an outside call center, they won't be able to help you.
  2. Hyatt Regency Atlanta, 265 Peachtree Street NE Atlanta, GA 30303, 1-404-577-1234, ask for in house reservations, hotel sales, or group organizer
    Hilton Atlanta, 255 Courtland Street NE Atlanta, GA 30303, 1-404-659-2000, ask for the group coordinator or group reservations
    Marriott Marquis Atlanta, 265 Peachtree Center Ave Atlanta, GA 30303, 1-404-521-0000, ask for group sales
    Sheraton Atlanta Hotel, 165 Courtland Street Atlanta, GA 30303, 1-404-659-6500, ask for in house reservations or group sales. 
    Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel, 210 Peachtree Street Atlanta, GA 30303, 1-404-659-1400, ask for group reservations
  3. If you are having trouble getting to the right department then ask if there is someone in charge of the Dragon Con room reservations. If so, get their contact info and speak to them. If not, ask to speak to someone who is experienced with the Dragon Con room reservation block. Be prepared to be transferred around a lot. Be patient and polite. You may need to speak to a number of people before you find someone who can help you. You may need to leave messages on someone's extension and wait for them to call you back. Be persistent. Eventually, someone will be able to help you.
  4. This is old information that is being left for reference purposes. As of 2019, I don't think any hotels are using Passkey anymore. I think the last hotel to use Passkey was the Hyatt for the 2018 reservations. I'm not sure if they are still using it for 2019 and beyond. Some hotels used to use a system called Passkey to make the reservations. The hotel couldn't even see those reservations in their system until a few weeks before the convention. This meant you had to make any changes in Passkey. If you can't do this online (this is often disabled) and the reservation was originally made through Passkey (Usually the Hyatt and Marriott and sometimes the Hilton) then call Passkey first. Marriott Passkey 1-888-266-9432. Hyatt Passkey 1-888-421-1441. http://www.passkey.com - Passkey 1-781-373-4100. The Hyatt, Marriott, and Hilton have all used Passkey for the bookings done on the official booking day.  As of 2015 the Sheraton and Westin have never used Passkey. The overflows have never used Passkey either. They key is to keep calling different reservation departments until someone can help you.
  5. If you made your reservation through Passkey, make sure you have both the Passkey confirmation number and the hotel's reservation number. If you used Passkey to book, your original confirmation email will only have the Passkey confirmation number on it. You may need to log into your online account or call the hotel to get the hotel's reservation number.
    1. There will be a holding period during which no changes can be made to the Passkey reservation, including adding a roommate's name.  Once Passkey has transferred the reservation to the hotel, changes can be made. The time it takes for this to happen varies every year and may vary by hotel. It can be weeks or months. Do not use the hotel's 1-800 booking number to find this out. Call the hotel's number directly and ask for inside reservations. Ask them if the passkey reservation is showing up on there system. If it isn't there, ask when it will be. If they don't know, call Passkey to ask. 

 

TRANSFERRING THE RESERVATION   

  1. NEVER use the word "transfer" when calling a hotel.
  2. Add the other person's name to your reservation.
  3. Give your reservation number(s) to the other person. If you forward them the confirmation email then make sure you delete any of your personal info from it.
  4. The person taking over the reservation should call the hotel and replace the other person's credit card info, email address, and room requests with their own.
  5. Always use a credit card with an expiration date of the year of the convention, October or later. 
  6. If you don't have one, request this from your bank and put it on file as soon as possible. This is to prevent your room being cancelled because your credit card is past the expiration date.  The hotels will tell you this doesn't happen, but it does. Every year. With no warning your room could be cancelled. Don't take the chance. 
  7. Ask the hotel to send you a confirmation email with the changes on it. Make sure you get it, keep this. Take it with you to check in. I print mine out so I can more easily hand it to the clerk.

 

CHECKING THE RESERVATION YOU GAVE AWAY 

  1. Check your original reservation. Confirm your credit card and email address is no longer on it.
  2. Keep the other person's contact info in your cell phone so that if there is any problem on check-in, you can call them to work it out. I've never needed to do this, but I believe in being prepared.
  3. Check your hotel bill both during your stay and upon final checkout. Make sure you are not begin charged for a room you didn't stay in. Know what all charges are for. Politely explain to the hotel staff if they've made a mistake and ask them to correct it. Honest mistakes happen, be courteous.
  4. Check your credit card statement after Dragon Con, make sure all the charges are correct. If they are not, dispute them.  You should be doing this anyway.
