CF Hotel: SOLD OUT, Other Options & Overflow Hotel!!
« on: February 05, 2013, 21:39:25 »
Since our last announcement that room availability was getting low, and we moved into manual clearing, our registration team have been working super hard, and we are now officially sold out of all our standard room spaces.  See below our options for the waiting list, camp-beds and most importantly; OVERFLOW HOTEL!

We know some of you have had to wait a long time, and there are many of you who will have registered, waited, and we're now not able to offer you a space.  We're really sorry for any inconvenience caused, but we do have some solutions for you below.

If you have registered in the last few days, you will typically find yourself on the waiting list, and may only get a space subject to cancellations or other changes that result in a room re-allocation.

So, what are the options now?  Well, you can either wait on the waiting list, choose our camp bed options, or book yourself a room in the overflow hotel.

WAITING LIST

If you have registered recently, and have not been put into a room, you should receive an email to tell you that you are on our waiting list (if you have not received anything, please contact registration 'at' confuzzled.org.uk to ask for an update).

You could choose to stay on our waiting list, and depending on what happens, you might be able to get into a room space, however at this stage we should advise that it is extremely unlikely that all the people on our waiting list will get a room.

If you're on the waiting list, you might want to instead plump for one of the following two alternatives (whatever you decide to do - make sure you tell us by contacting registration 'at' confuzzled.org.uk)

CAMP BED OPTION

There is one final way that you can get a space in the hotel - a camp bed.  Similar to how our 'five person' room is a twin-double plus a camp bed, we are now able to release the remaining camp beds for all our other room types.  So, how does this work?  Follow these simple steps!:  

•Find -and club together with- people already in a confirmed room-share, and agree with them to add the camp bed.
•Go ahead and register as 'attending only' (if you have already registered under a different room type and are on the waiting list; you don't need to change your room selection).
•Contact registration (registration 'at' confuzzled.org.uk) with the details of at least one person already in the room share (please include registration number), asking to be added as a camp bed occupant.  Registration will then tell you the cost of adding the camp-bed to the room.  If reductions are involved in increasing the occupancy of the room, then these will be passed entirely to the new occupant.
•Registration will do the rest, and will contact the other room-share occupants for confirmation. However, if you can get the other occupants to email ahead of time with YOUR registration helpdesk ticket number in the subject line, it will considerably speed up the process.
•When registration have confirmed everything, you will be asked to pay.
•Once payment has been received, your registration will be confirmed, and the new room-share will be complete.  

Note, only one camp bed can be allocated per room (so, five person rooms already have a camp bed and so don't qualify), and it MUST be an official hotel camp bed (you cannot bring your own).

OVERFLOW HOTEL

We are delighted to announce our overflow hotel!

The Hilton Leicester Hotel is located just 10 minutes away by road, and is offering rooms at a discounted rate for ConFuzzled attendees!  The Hotel is located at 21 Junction Approach. Leicester, LE19 1WQ

To book a room, please follow this link to their special booking portal for ConFuzzled (please follow this link to book, as it is the ONLY way you can secure a room at the discounted rate!).

IMPORTANT:  Booking a room at the overflow hotel does NOT constitute a ConFuzzled registration you MUST ALSO register for the convention as 'attending only'

The very attractive room rates are as follows:
  • £55 for a guest double per night, based on one person occupancy
  • £60 for a guest double per night, based on two people sharing

The booking system automatically defaults to the main dates of the convention, but you can also extend those dates to a day either side if you'd like the equivalent of 'early arrival' or 'late departure' or both! (if you select dates even further outside of this, the discount automatically drops off).

Take note, unlike with our main venue, you are making an accommodation arrangement directly with the Hilton Leicester Hotel, not with ConFuzzled.  The Hilton's standard terms and conditions apply.  Understand that when you make your booking, you are booking the ENTIRE room - others you wish to share with therefore do NOT need to make their own bookings.

The Hilton have been kind enough to reserve a block of rooms just for us - but that reservation has a limited time window, so if you're looking to book, our advice is to book sooner rather than later!  The block of rooms for early arrival / late departure is very limited.

There will be a free transport service operating between the main venue and the overflow hotel - we will be announcing details of this soon!

I'm currently sharing a twin room with someone. What would the prices be if we share it with a third person?
