The AnimeIowa 2011 Room Block at the Coralville Marriott is FULL!

All of the Friday and Saturday night rooms have now been reserved.  However, we do still have rooms available at the reduced AnimeIowa room rate for Thursday night and Sunday night.  So if you’d like these nights, or if you’d like to ADD Thursday or Sunday to your existing reservation at our reduced rate, now is the best time to do that!

What does this sell out mean for those of you who still would like a room at the Coralville Marriott?   You should sign up for the Hotel Room Waiting List!  The record speed at which all of our rooms were reserved this year caught us off guard a bit, but we’ll have this year’s waiting list info and sign-up posted in the next few days.

We are happy to announce the first batch of guests for AnimeIowa 2011! Returning this year are Christopher Ayres, Greg Ayres, Robert Axelrod, Kyle Hebert, Lea Hernandez, and Helen McCarthy.
