Ready to book your room for AnimeIowa 2015? We’ve got the information for you! A few things have changed this year and the hotel team is ready and waiting for your questions. A Single King room books for $127 plus tax per night, and a Double Queen at $134 plus tax per night. Please remember that room types are NOT guaranteed, and you will be placed by availability.
If there are any questions, please take a look at the 2014 FAQ and hotel reservation instructions pages. Please remember that the forums are currently out of working order and some information is outdated. So, even though there is lots of useful information, it has not been updated for 2015! For example, December 1st is the opening date for the room block!
We repeat, the hotel team is standing by for questions.
We look forward to an excellent year!

Hello, AI 2015 Attendees!
Due to a large city wide event in the Coralville/Iowa City area, our room blocking must begin early. This means that attendee room blocking will open on Monday, December 1st, 2014.
It is highly important that if a room is not available at the Marriott, to please note that rooms throughout the area in surrounding hotels cannot be guaranteed this year starting in January. Please make your reservation plans quickly, as AnimeIowa is not responsible for the loss of rooms outside of the Marriott.
Please do not hesitate to book your room at an area hotel if you are on the waiting list once the room block closes because, as always, AnimeIowa cannot guarantee placement inside the Marriott after the block is full.
We know it’s early, and that can make booking a room difficult, so please direct any questions or concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org and our team will answer to the best of our authority.

The Hotel Block has filled up in record time. Not to worry, you still have plenty of options. If you are still set on having a room at the convention hotel you can sign up for the Hotel Waiting List which allows you to book a room if one happens to come available in a first come first serve basis. Otherwise check out our page of Offsite Hotels.

The “second chance” ends on Monday, June 24, and we still have a few open Single King rooms! What does this mean? Well~ it means that if you are not staying at the Marriott because it was full when you tried getting in, you may have the opportunity to get in now! If you would like a Single King room, email me by July 1st and we can discuss getting you a room at the Marriott! On the waiting list for a Double Queen room? If you’d be interested in changing your request to a Single King then we will be taking those contacts as well!
These rooms are few in number, so it will be first come, first serve. Email email@example.com. If you send your name, we can work on getting you into the room block and filling our vacancies.
We no longer have any Thursday night vacancies, but we have a few rooms open for Friday and Saturday nights and a handful for Sunday. After July 1st, we will not be accepting any more requests for rooms, so the sooner you get yourself in, the sooner you could be staying at the Marriott!
