Always wanted to help be a part of what makes AnimeIowa great? Do you miss one of the most diverse, energetic, and enjoyable pieces of convention life? We’d love to see you join our room party block! Until May 1st, room party submissions are open! Here’s a bit about what you need to know:
Room parties can only be held on the second floor, but this will allow you to enjoy your night life with your friends and party guests without worrying about noise complaints! New for 2016, we also have contests and goodies for the room party block and would LOVE to be able to give them away!
Don’t have a reservation? Contact us anyway; we can likely still get your a room party room! Reservations take priority.
Rules and regulations can be found in the forums here: AnimeIowa 2016 Room Party Rules

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 Please remember that the forums are currently out of working order and some information is outdated.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.
