By choosing to join this room share, you agree to everything in the Frequently Asked Questions.

Description of Myself: I am a 22-year old male who will be attending Anime Expo for the third time. I have experience with multiple conventions around the country, and am excited to return back to Anime Expo.


Are the rates per night or for the whole stay?
It's for the whole stay. I do not have a per night rate.

When would the payment be due?
I ask a deposit as soon as possible to ensure that you can cover your cost at the convention. I ask that payment be sent at least a month prior to the convention. This gives me time to compile payment for the hotel, as well as weed out any last second drop-outs.

How do you like payment?
I prefer Venmo, money orders, or checks. If cash is sent in the mail and the postman loses it, it's lost for both you and me. Checks, Venmo, or money orders can be traced by the sender, or cancelled and retrieved, if necessary.

Why is your rate so [email protected]$#ing expensive?
I try maintain a humane rooming situation for everyone. I do not stuff rooms with 10 people to try to drive down the cost of the room per head at the cost of everyone's experience. 2 people per bed, PERIOD.

Do you accept Paypal?
Yes. We have to be careful about that since they can take a chunk of the payment out in fees. Venmo is as easy to use and absolutely free to use for money payments and trackable.

What do we do about food (water)?
I am planning a buy-in pool of water and basic snacks to help keep everyone hydrated and somewhat satiated during the convention. I am trying to keep the cost per head under $20 for the entire weekend. I will also try to schedule optional group meals so we can all meet, sit, relax, and eat. No one has to attend, but it is a great way to meet other fans and make friendships. I will do my best to avoid major gatherings and events when scheduling them.

Aren't you a bit... um... young? That's a fair question. Simply answered, I have coordinated room shares before and travelled around the world thrice already (really!). If you think that I am a tank top wearing, binge drinking, irresponsible college drop-out, you are wrong.

Is there a Girl/Guy Only room?
Sadly, I need to make rooms co-ed to ensure room costs are fully covered. I will ensure beds are single gendered and will create single gender room when possible.

I'm under 18... Can I still go?
I'll take people as young as 15, but if you are between 15 and 17, I HAVE TO SPEAK TO YOUR PARENTS FIRST. This is non-negotiable. It sounds very over-bearing, but if you're a minor, you lie to your parent/guardian about where you are, and you're found with me and/or my friends, that's a potential kidnapping charge on the adult(s) you're found with, and that's a great way to ruin a convention and my day.

What is your cancellation policy?
I understand get life happens and unexpected things pop up like money troubles or friends suddenly inviting you to go. If you can decide if you're cancelling by the end of May, I'd appreciate it. Though, I'll accept your cancellation up to a week before the convention. However, it's very hard to guarantee a full refund within a week of the convention. The reason for this is there's other people counting on everyone paying their fair share.

What's the rule about drinking?
I don't mind social drinking or fun drinking, but I don't tolerate getting fall-down drunk. Also, NO MINOR DRINKING, PERIOD. If you're an adult who gives a minor alcohol, we'll have a few unkind words, and I won't hesitate to involve the authorities and kick you out.

Someone in the room is getting on my nerves...
Bring anything like this to me. I'm a decent negotiator (plus the "owner" of the room and I will handle all issues like this. Few things can make a weekend more tense than people irritating each other and drawing lines in the sand. Even if it doesn't get to fighting, you're giving the cold-shoulder to someone else, and everyone else in that room will get frustrated and caught up in it. That's not fair to everyone in that situation.

Um... I broke something in the room.
This should be a no-brainer, but be prepared to pay for it. I also inspect rooms quickly before I check them out. The reason for that is if these things are reserved with my credit card and something comes up broken, I have to pay for it. I limit my risks by being careful. If no one comes forward for damages, I will bill everyone in that room for the damage, so please do right by your roommates.

What happens if I break "the rules?"
I escort you out. Not out of the hotel or the convention, but out of my room block. No refunds and no arguments. You're out.

-Any other questions, please feel free to ask via my contact information.

No Drugs, this is also a non-smoking room (no vaping in the room, no cigarettes, no weed sorry). This room is 18+ No Exceptions (if possible we would like to keep it 21+ because we do drink but we will not be letting anyone under the age of 21 drink.) if you are a parent bringing a under age child with you please do not get in contact with me. There will be ZERO tolerance for any kind of drama! This is a fun drama free room! (If you are causing drama you will be asked to leave and you will not receive a refund.) if you are going to drink please provide your own alcohol and please know your limit (we do not want to babysit you and we do not want people drinking till they get sick). Payment will be do in advance not when you arrive. (To keep things running smoothly with the hotel room and check in you will need to pay in advance before the convention for the simple reason everyone shows up at different times and different days.)

Amenities: Me and my friend have been running rooms together for the past 5 years, everyone that stays with us always has a great time! We do not book through the AX website because of all of the AX rules they have. We do book a Junior Suite (which is a really big room), please keep in mind that since we do not book through the AX site and we book a much bigger room we do not get the AX discount on our room so we are paying full price. We provide Drinks (soda, water, juice) and food (sandwiches and snacks) which is already included in the room price. We always have tons of anime and video games in the room. You are more the welcome to tag along with me or my friend during the convention if you want too, we want to make sure no one in our room feels singled out. If you ever have any issues don't hesitate to get ahols of Christian or myself.

Other Information: We are a very loud room, we like to have fun and most nights we sont wnd up going to bed till around 3-5 am. But if you can sleep with all the noise and lights on you're more than welcome in this room! If you cant sleep with a lot of noise then this room probably isnt for you, again were here to have fun so we dont want people complaining or getting mad about us being noisy all night. We do ask that your bring what you will need to be comfortable since there is only floor space in this room (bring your own pillows, blankets, showering towls, shampoo whatever els you shower with daily.) Thats all for now I cant wait to get a awesome group of people to fill up the room this year!!! Lets make this an awesome 2017 AX!!!

Contact: please contact me via email if interested because I probably will not check my nessages on here!! [email protected] (please put something regarding the AX room in the subject line)

REMINDER: Just a quick reminder that your payment will be due in advance!! Not when you arrive to the convention. Thank you and I can't wait to hear from everone!!
