Comic-Con 2012 Hotel Reservations Will Open March 29 at 9:00am Pacific Time


Important note: We are offering a “sneak peek” at the hotels in our block and their rates and shuttle availability online at www.comic-con.org/cci/cci_ hotel.php, but HOTEL RESERVATIONS DO NOT OPEN UNTIL MARCH 29, 2012 at 9:00 AM Pacific time (12:00 PM Eastern time). You cannot request your hotel through the Comic-Con reservation service at these special rates until then. This information is presented early to allow you to be better prepared when the reservation process goes live on that day.

As you may know from past experience, Comic-Con’s discounted hotel rates means rooms sell out very quickly. This year we have come up with a number of solutions that we think will help the reservation process:

  • There are more hotel rooms available than ever before. Many of them are on the Comic-Con Shuttle routes.
  • Once confirmed, all hotel reservations will require a deposit of two nights’ room and tax for each room booked. This will encourage people to release unwanted rooms in advance so people on the wait list can reserve them.
  • Hotel reservation deposits are fully refundable until May 4, 2012.
  • For cancellations from May 5 to June 1, 2012, a cancellation fee equal to one night’s room and tax will be charged. The cancellation fee will be deducted from your deposit.
  • Starting on June 2, 2012, ALL DEPOSITS ARE NONREFUNDABLE.

COMIC-CON SHUTTLE SERVICE:
Helping fans enjoy every hour of Comic-Con 2012 and the nighttime fun, too!

Shuttles for Comic-Con 2012 will run continuously to the hotels indicated during these hours (frequency varies*).

  • WEDNESDAY: 3:00 PM–10:00 PM (PREVIEW NIGHT)
  • THURSDAY: 5:00 AM–SUNDAY: 7:00 PM: SHUTTLE RUNS CONTINUOUSLY!
    *FREQUENCY VARIES THROUGHOUT THE DAY.
    See Shuttle Stop Locations & Map Below

As you may know from the past few years, the discounted rate offered by Comic-Con on the rooms in our block means that they tend to sell out in the first hour.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Starting at 9:00 am PT on March 29, 2012, you will be able to access the reservation request form via this page www.comic-con.org/cci/cci_hotel.php or by calling 1-877-55-COMIC (1-877-552-6642) or 212-532-1660.

  • PLEASE SELECT A MINIMUM OF ONE HOTEL AND A MAXIMUM OF TWENTY, in order of preference. If you choose to request only 1 or 2 hotels, and these hotels are not available when your form is processed, you may not get a hotel room for Comic-Con. The more choices you make the better chance you have of getting a room for Comic-Con.
  • All reservation requests will be processed in date/time stamp order. Forms received within three seconds of each other are considered to have arrived at the same time and will be processed in a random order within that three-second grouping.
  • A recap e-mail listing the hotel choices you submitted to Travel Planners will be sent to you within 48 hours. Please review it to make sure it is correct and follow the directions on your e-mail if the information is incorrect.
  • You will get your reservation confirmation e-mail listing the hotel or hotels where you have reservations no later than April 1, 2012. If you are happy with your hotels, please follow the directions on your confirmation and go back online to pay the required deposit within 48 hours of receiving your confirmation or your reservation will be cancelled. If you are not happy with your hotel and do not plan to confirm your reservation, please log on and cancel your reservation so another attendee can have a chance at getting your room.
  • All reservations require an advance deposit equal to two nights’ room and tax. Deposits are required when you log back in to guarantee your reservation and must be submitted within 48 hours of receiving your confirmation or you will lose your reservation and you will not have a hotel room for Comic-Con.
  • Hotel reservation deposits are fully refundable until May 4, 2012.
  • For cancellations from May 5 to June 1, 2012, a cancellation fee equal to one night’s room rate plus tax will be charged. The cancellation fee will be deducted from your deposit.
  • Starting on June 2, 2012, ALL DEPOSITS ARE NONREFUNDABLE.
  • Each hotel’s payment policies vary; the date that your total balance is due will be dependent upon the policies of your hotel. Most hotels place a deposit on your credit card when you check in and charge the balance on check out. Please ask your hotel for their policy.
  • As Comic-Con gets closer, hotel rooms do free up. We urge everyone who plans on making a hotel reservation for the event to keep checking the hotel page at http://www.comic-con.org/cci/cci_hotel.php for updated room availability. If you don’t get your first choice on March 29, check back later to see if the hotel you prefer is available.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE HOTEL RATES LISTED ARE STARTING RATES AND ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.

PLEASE NOTE: Your reservations will be booked based on room availability. Bed type and special requests are not guaranteed. These requests will be noted with the hotel, but are subject to hotel availability at the time of check-in. Currently, hotels in San Diego charge a Transient Occupancy tax of 10.565%, a Tourism Marketing assessment of 2% and parking fees, all of which are subject to change without notice. Hotel rates are not guaranteed until booked and confirmed. Hotel rates may vary by number of occupants and other requested services. Comic-Con and Travel Planners reserve the right to correct any identified errors.
