A place for you to hook up with other people either wanting to share a room or who have a room to share.

Hi this is Annie. And I am looking for space in a room with fellow convention goers. I live in North Vancouver. But would prefer to stay at the hotel. As the commute by transit is a bitch everyday. Unfortunately due to unforeseen happening lastyear I had to lastyear but do not want to this year. As I missed tons of the evening events  :-\.

Just me looking to room with women. Will definitely pay my share of the room expenses

Hi

Anyone from Yorkshire, or elsewhere in UK need a room mate? Reason I say Yorkshire is because I'd prefer to meet anybody  willing to let me room with them before the event so we can get to know each other but rest of UK should be OK for a meet up at some point.

I'm nervous of leaving it until the event.

My name is Kara and I am looking for some roommates. I have never been to Gatecon but I did go to the Chicago Stargate Con these past two years. I am a 29/F and I currently do not have a hotel room but I would love to stay at or near the convention, preferably with other females. I am from the USA so this will also be my first time going to Canada! (excited!) I am also not sure what my transportation will be like  if we are at an offsite hotel since I will be flying in.

Hi Kara... the hotel has a free shuttle that runs from the airport to the Sheraton so transport shouldn't be a problem

Hi Fryn, sorry, I edited my statement. What I meant was if we were at an offsite hotel, I probably would not have a car so I could not provide passage. So transportation would have to be public unless someone else was driving.

I'm still deciding about attending. I have a room with two queen beds at the 199CAD rate from Sept 12-17. Within the past week, my bank card was compromised and my bank account on hold since I've filed a fraud claim that took place in Texas. I've contacted Starwood to get the procedure to change bank card for the reservation. I'm an older female but can handle many folks in the room. Let me know if interested. The room is not ADA accessible.

we are a party of three and as of right now, not too sure whether we'll book two rooms or just 1 room and share the beds.

Anyway, we are not looking for roomies specifically but as the person in charge of booking, I would like to offer that last spot if there is someone on their own who would be looking to join. We're all female party. If said person would join, we'd be having 2 rooms (2 double beds each).

It's not a SHARE reply but if it helps to find cheap enough placement - they still have some rooms left - I've managed to book Lido Family Guest House (Queen Room) 7711 Belair Dr,
V7A 1B9 Richmond via booking com for £277 for 6 nights which is 3.7km (2.3miles) from the Event ;) not bad i guess!!

I just want to throw this out for everyone's information. Last year, my sister and I came to the convention. To make a long story short, we ended up having to find a room about four weeks before the convention. For $200 a night, we found a lovely two bedroom, two bath apartment one building away from the hotel. (The Irish Pub was in this building.) Full kitchen, washer dryer, Etc.

When it gets closer to the convention, I will be looking for something similar. (It is too early to do it now, can't book that far ahead.)  Since it will be just me this year, I will be looking for roommates. So don't panic if you haven't found anything yet or couldn't get a reservation at the hotel. There are lots of options available.

Hi this is Annie again. Turns out my original plan for roommates has fallen through. Sadly the person I was to room with is no longer attending the convention. So I am in need of Roomies for the convention. I am open to sleeping anywhere. Bed, rollaway, floor.

Let me know!!!

Hi Camilaabd, I have a room booked at the Sheraton Hotel, so if you want to share it with me it does not bother me.

hi
 I hope this is getting through correctly.

 I have a room for Gatecon 2018.  I am looking for at least 2 possible 3 room mates, needing no less than 4 people in the room all together to save on cost.
