Gen Con Housing opened at Noon and the Professor and made a coordinated effort to book rooms for our groups pilgrimage to Gen Con in August. To be honest I was more than a little concerned given the reputation of Gen Con's online systems coupled with my group's past experiences, but it all worked out great. We got our first choice, the Westin Indianapolis, right across the street from the convention center. This will (hopefully) make our experience even better than last year where we had to drive back and forth from our hotel near the airport and carry our stuff around all day.
If you haven't booked your hotel room yet through the room block do so ASAP, especially if you are looking for one of the closer hotels!
Those of you who have booked your rooms and got what you wanted join me in a collective, "WOOT!"
