Anime Expo 2017 Roommate Needed - Please read

MetalSamamonRGBlv198 måneder sidenDiary
Hello everyone! ^___^

As it stands right now; I'm planning on going to Anime Expo this year!

www.anime-expo....

Anime Expo 2017 will be from June 30th - 4th in downtown Los Angeles, California! ^_^

I am looking for someone (or more than 1 person) to split a hotel room with for the duration of the con! I will be there all days, so the hotel will be from the night of the 30th (arriving the morning of the con) until the 4th (check out will be the same day the con ends). It's a total of 4 nights.

The hotel I have booked is less than 1 mile from the Convention Center, where AX is held. The hotel is the America's Best Value Inn hotel in downtown Los Angeles. The price would be about $200 for all 4 nights...

...if you're interested, please either reply here or send me a PM here, and we can discuss the details of it more thoroughly. Thank you so much in advance!

If you know anyone looking for a room for the con too, please feel free to let them know about this too. Anyone is welcome; I've been going to cons for many years now and this is my 3rd time going to AX. So, if you want to go or know someone who does, any help is appreciated! Thanks, and I look forward to any replies!

maggie (8 måneder siden) #18078642 I preferred NYCC to SDCC because it was more dorky and you could happen upon some great events and signings walking around, but now it's becoming so packed and competitive (and a lot more media/TV shows mainstream etc) to get what you want it's not fun anymore.Personally I think NYCC is a bit lacking because it happens at a bit of an odd time. (By that I mean around NYCC is around the season where a lot of shows are ending or SDCC pretty much announced every new movie/show that's coming out) Personally why I prefer SDCC over NYCC.

Both cons have become and still are more & more competitive. (The SDCC Hall H Line and Sails Pavilion are insane)

In any event, I would still recommend going at least once if you haven't gone before.
Getting in and out of the venue is not a big deal. Picking up your badge is more the issue. Last year was probably the worst organized for pre-registered badge pick-up I've ever encountered. I think that there were some people who had to wait 4 hours to get their badges, and the staff were totally disorganized.
Autographs use a ticket system, but that just means that people queue up in the wee hours of the morning to get autograph tickets.
Despite all that, I will still be attending this year...


Hmm from what people are saying I probably wouldn't have much fun. I preferred NYCC to SDCC because it was more dorky and you could happen upon some great events and signings walking around, but now it's becoming so packed and competitive (and a lot more media/TV shows mainstream etc) to get what you want it's not fun anymore. Sounds like this con would be similar. My husband got a job for a game company and I think they'll have a booth so I'd have an exhibitor/store pass and get to do as I liked. I'll probably pass unless some crazy guest like Oda is there.

I get an exhibitor's pass so I get access to the Exhibitor's block and have to say, for four nights x2 people $200 per person, is a very good price.

$240 is what I get charged and room with 3-4 other people. Granted we're either at JW or Courtyard.

For picking up badges on day 1 (I was with my friends; day 0 is when I picked up my badge and it was fine), they had about 4-5 different split-up lines, which allowed tons of people who just arrived cut in front of those who had waited for hours already despite people pointing it out to the staff... I will also be returning.

maggie (8 måneder siden) #18078260Kind of OT, but I was offered free passes to AX for work and I'm wondering if I should go. Is it fun/are there usually good guests? Or is it overcrowded like comicon and you can only get one thing done standing in line all day for a ticket to a raffle to get a signature or waiting sitting on tile floor all day for 9 hours so you can see the panel you want. Cuz I'm kind of sick of that.
I've been going to AX for a long time, and it is definitely the later now - though lines for panels aren't that bad... Typically if you get in an hour or so before hand to line up for a panel you'll get in, though it could be longer for the more popular panels. The problem recently is that they use outside staging areas for panel entry, and only premier ticket holders wait outside the panel room. People who aren't aware of this often wait in the wrong line, and can end up not getting in because of this.

In any event, I would still recommend going at least once if you haven't gone before.

The lines aren't really lines as much as they are just a sea of people getting into the same thing; at least for the main entrance. Not sure about autographs, as I haven't been interested in any of them from the people they've had there the years I went.

Medzevil (8 måneder siden) #18078352You got my attention. Ive been going to Ax for what I remember 4 years. I live about 30 minutes away from downtown so I was thinking of booking a hotel with my friend this year. Id be willing to room with ya. Id have to ask my friend first.

Oh, that's great! ^___^ Your friend is welcome too; if you want to split the room 3-ways for the stay instead (up to you two, of course). Thanks for considering it though; I hope your friend will be willing to do it too! ^^

Free passes are good; because entry for all days is $80 (+ $20 if you want to go to the Preview Day activities); so it would be a waste not to go, if you have them.

But, of course, it's up to you if you go. I'm just offering a cheap place to stay for the con, if you want. It'll be up to you in the end, naturally. ^^

Sythellri (8 måneder siden) #18078225Less than a mile or a mile? I have a lot of experience going to AX and you should probably mention the hotel by name if you are looking for roommates. I can tell youthat, if it is oneof those cheap little motels that are in the opposite direction of downtown, you should probably reconsider and book one of the downtown hotels even if they are more expensive. They are closer to the events and also frequently there are small events or parties hosted in the downtown hotels.

The hotel I chose is the "America's Best Value Inn"; which is about 0.8 miles from the con center. Of course there is the subway system there too, so travelling to and from the con shouldn't be difficult.

As for the events and parties; I wasn't planning on attending any of them. I go to the con for the con; not the other things hosted by people in their hotel rooms and such; and I'm trying to go on a budget (hence choosing a close, cheap hotel vs. a slightly closer, more expensive one).

I hope that will help with the decision about this hotel for anyone who might want to split a room with me. Thanks in advance again!

I've never been to Comicon, but I went to AX 2016. I can honestly say that I'll most likely never be back. The con was so overwhelming and all of my family members were depending on me to guide them (it was my idea, after all), but the venue was so large that we ended up waiting in line to get in for 2-3 hours, which made me miss half of the Love Live! panel (the only reason I came). It was definitely overcrowded, but maybe that's because I'm used to local Florida cons.

If you got free passes, though, it'd be a waste not to go. Just be prepared to suffer lol
