This year’s San Diego Comic-Con Hotel Sale, aka Hotelpocalypse, which took place on April 5, left many attendees in a couple of unhappy positions. One was where attendees were placed in a room that was not on their top 6 list, and another was where attendees were not placed in any room. In both situations, however, these attendees were informed that they would be placed on a waitlist in which there might be an opportunity to reserve a room at a hotel at a later time, if rooms became available.
Yesterday, May 25, Comic-Con International announced via their Toucan Blog that the SDCC 2016 Hotel Waitlist Process will begin on June 1. Today, May 26, onPeak sent out informational emails to attendees who are on the waitlist, which you can read below.
It basically has the same information that the Toucan Blog has, saying that on June 1, onPeak will begin sending emails in small batches to those on the waitlist informing them about available rooms. You will have 48 hours from the time you receive the email to reserve a room using the password that will be contained in the email. If you already reserved a room through onPeak in the Hotel Sale, and you book a new room during the waitlist process, you will need to cancel the old reservation on the same day.
The order in which people will receive the email will be determined by the same timestamp the attendee had upon accessing the housing request form during the Hotel Sale. You should check your email daily for at least 10 business days starting June 1. The email will come from firstname.lastname@example.org, so make sure that email address is on your list of approved senders so you don’t miss it.
