If you are a confirmed AnimeIowa staff member, you will be instructed how to make a priority AnimeIowa room reservation starting on November 17th, 2017. (Getting early room reservations is just one of the great perks that AnimeIowa staff members enjoy! ;))
Previously, reservations required a deposit in order to secure the reservation. We’re happy to announce that the new system does not require this. However, your room can still be cancelled if you do not pay for it upon checking in
When all available rooms IN ALL HOTELS are reserved (sold out), the AnimeIowa Hotel Team will maintain a waiting list of people who would still like rooms in the block. People on the waiting list will be offered the rooms that become available (due to cancellations, etc.) on a first-come first-serve basis. This waiting list has been very successful the last several years, and we’re happy to offer it again for 2018.
We have several hotels within the block, links below, covering a good portion of the downtown area hotels. With a centralized blocking system, no one will need to worry about getting through to the front desk of their respective hotel. Everything will be done through the Convention Bureau’s housing system.
