Are you staying at the Sheraton and looking to save costs by room sharing? If so let your fellow Gaters know here.

Any one looking for a room share? I'll have a king sized bed, I'm house broken, don't snore and don't mind sharing a bed. Let me know if you're interested. It'll save us both money.  Dorci

I want to to let you know, I am no longer able to attend so I will be cancelling my room. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Hi KLaira!!!

I'm interested in your offer  :D

I Don't snore either, it just may be hard to get me settled for the night because I tend to get overly excited especially since Stargate is involved but I swear I can behave and I won't bother you. Plus since the flight it's gonna cost me an arm and a leg I could really use some 'saving money' on the accomodation in the hotel.

Looking to share a room, missed the first room block so no reservation on my part, yet anyway.

Hi Dorci! Nice to 'virtually' meet you u.u

I absolutely understand your reason and I know how it can be when you have to wait an answer before giving one to another person.

I just checked the hotel's prices (a new block has been added) and they're kinda high for a single person, hence I won't be able to afford staying in the convention hotel all by myself...

So, we wait and try to find another hotel near-by? Is that even possible or we have to stay at the hotel convention in order to attend the event?

In case we can find another accomodation then there's no problem in waiting for your answer. If not I hope you'll understand my looking for another roommate, I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to be there!

@Ksmerryman: Still looking? Have you already booked in the new block? Because we could share the three of us and it'll cost much less!!

Just wanted to mention that you don't need to stay at the convention hotel in order to attend. So if someplace else works out better, that's not a problem! Staying at the con hotel can be very convenient if you want to run up to your room to drop off things or retreat for a bit or whatever, but it is indeed quite pricey, and there are other hotel options nearby that will still give you easy access to the con :-)

Richard thanks for the reply and your assistance!  :D I was in fact looking for other hotels nearby, since the flight (at least for me... sooo faaaaaaar awaaaaay) is going to be pretty expensive on its own...
Yes, I agree that having the room in the same hotel will really be pretty convinient, but I can manage a short distance from/to the Sheraton  ;)

In any case I'm hope to suggestions from whoever wants to share a room, don't be shy I don't bite!

I'm not sure who already has roommates from the earlier posts, so I'll just post what I have. I currently have a two bed queen room reserved and I'll be bringing an additional air mattress with me. I'm looking for 2-3 roommates to join me, or if there's some others that would like to go still cheaper, I could let me reservation go and join you with my mattress. I'm trying to save for GC extras plus I want to make a pre-GateCon detour to Tofino:) Let me know. Thanks, Christy

There used to be a small hotel down the road a little - on the same block as the London Drugs, iirc - that was a bit cheaper than the con hotel.  I don't know if it's still there or what the rates are like now (the last time I was there was something like 9 or 10 yrs ago since the '80 and '10 cons were at the Wall Centre), so you can probably check that one out.

Hi HighlanderII =D

Thank you for the info!!! I'm gonna check that one out! I've found a hotel just across from where the Sheraton is, like a 2/3 minutes walk
according to google maps and I'm gonna see if thay have a room aviable from the 6th untill 16/18th... Hopefully I can stay there
for the whole period since with the occasion I'd like to visit Vancouver (not sure I could affort another trip like this in
the short period so I'd better make the most out of it)


I'm not sure who already has roommates from the earlier posts, so I'll just post what I have. I currently have a two bed queen room reserved and I'll be bringing an additional air mattress with me.

I am looking to share a room at the Sheraton.  I have a block reserved with 2 queen beds but I do not have a credit card so I am willing to either share with someone else in their room or have someone share my room.  I am 45 years old.  I have it reserved from the 8th to the 13th.  I really need to help cut costs so if you want to share or if you are looking for a roomate please let me know.  Thanks !!

Hi!

We are two lovely ladies, one from Seattle, one from Sydney AU. We have a room with two queens and are looking to share it with two others.

Priority given to folks that know each other since you will have to share a bed. Trying to keep our costs down so we can spend our money on much more fun things.

WE have the hotel booked from Sept 7th check in and Sept 13th check out.

Please feel free to send me a message if interested.

Thanks!
Denise

Be aware that if you have one of those credit cards with the hotel points, that is another way to cover the cost of the room. That is what I did.

I have a room booked at the Westward Inn and Suites in Langley, I'll have an open seat in my car as well. I'm a bed hog so the floor would be open if someone wants to give me some money towards the cost of the room. I've got it the 8th-12th. Total room cost is $203 USD ($271 CAD) so I'd be looking for about 1/4 the cost since you'd be on the floor so $20 USD per night or $27 CAD. I'm 33 from Seattle and my car is a 1990 Miata (so not a LOT of room). Just putting some feelers out.

Hi guys! I would love to share the costs of a room at the Sheraton or a nearby hotel with anyone who has a booking, ideally with female roomies.  Let me know plz! =D I'm quiet and low-impact myself but don't mind sharing with pretty much anybody, even if you are more of a party person.

Hi All,

Looking for post-con room share.

I will be staying at the Accent Inn Burnaby from Tue, Sep 13 to Sun, Sep 18.  That's the hotel across the street from Bridge Studios (where they filmed Stargate SG1, Atlantis, et al.)  I am looking for a female roommate or two - is anyone interested?

Thanks,

-Cherie

I've had to move hotels for a third time (thanks a lot Expedia). I'll now be staying at the Travelodge which is 11 min from the convention. I'll have two queen beds but definitely only need one for myself. I'll be up the dates of the convention, would like to be able to split the cost if possible if anyone wants to crash with me. I'm 33, female, covered in tattoos and from Seattle and if you have any other questions about me please feel free to message and ask. I'll be wearing my O'Neill cosplay for most days of the con. Total hotel cost is $369 USD so half would be $184.50.

EDIT: Roommate acquired!

Hi guys,

due to unfortunate unforseen events one of the girls who wanted to share a room with us ladies at the Sheraton hotel is unable to join us and we are now one person short.
We had planned to split the costs between us 5 girls to reduce the overall costs.
We have the room reserved from the 4th to the 13th of September.
We are looking now for an additional 5th person to share the room. Is anyone interested (mainly female due to the rest of us are too ;-)) or is still looking for a room/bed for the convention? We are 4 girls/ladies from Germany and the USA and very out going and social. We welcome anyone interested! Pls share this info if you might have also someone else in mind who could need this info.
