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.
Fer cryin' out loud!

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)

hi
Had a 3rd Roommate but that fell through

I am looking for 2 female Roommates for Gatecon to join myself and another friend of mine. She is early60's and I am 48, not that that matters, :)

Dates are I believe from the 7th-13th for sure and possibly morning of the 14th
