Note: The Travel Planners Hotel Reservation web site WILL NOT BE OPEN until 9:00 AM Pacific time on Tuesday, April 8!
Important note: We are offering this “sneak peek” at the hotels in our block and their rates and shuttle availability, but HOTEL RESERVATIONS DO NOT OPEN UNTIL April 8, 2014 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.
Please keep in mind that the Travel Planners hotel request form website is best accessed from a desktop computer. Accessing this form from a tablet or smartphone device may slow your progress. We highly recommend you use a desktop computer during this hotel request process.
The following information pertains to any room booked through Travel Planners for Comic-Con 2014:
As everyone knows from past experience, Comic-Con’s discounted hotel rates means rooms sell out very quickly. We have come up with a number of solutions that we think will help the reservation process:
• In an effort to equalize the amount of time each participant spends on the request form, a total of six (6) hotel choices will be required. No participant can provide more, or less, than 6 hotel choices.
• There are more hotel rooms available than ever before. Most of them are on the Comic-Con Shuttle routes.
• Once confirmed, all hotel reservations will require a deposit of two nights’ room rate 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 if cancelled by April 30, 2014.
• For cancellations received from May 1 to June 1, 2014, 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, 2014, ALL DEPOSITS ARE NONREFUNDABLE.

• All reservations require an advance deposit equal to two nights’ room rate and tax. Deposits are required when you log back in to guarantee your reservation and must be submitted within 72 hours of receiving your confirmation or you will lose your reservation and you will not have a hotel room for Comic-Con.

• Each hotel’s payment policies vary; the date that your total balance is due will be dependent upon the policies of your hotel. All hotels place a deposit on your credit card or debit card when you check in and charge the balance at 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 back to this page for updated room availability. If you don’t get your first choice on April 8, 2014, 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.

NOTE: Hotel rates include an $8.00 per night reimbursement to Comic-Con to help defray shuttle and convention costs (this charge is subject to change). San Diego city blocks are small compared to other cities and take approximately 2–3 minutes to walk. You may find walking in the morning is a great way to explore San Diego and find new places for dinner or lunch or shopping.
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.
