Did you use a debit card or a credit card? Debit cards almost always get charged some amount while credit cards only get a temporary hold.

I had to use a debit card, I do not have a credit card. I would prefer to pay cash, but you cannot make a reservation any other way.

If they charge it, I will cancel the reservation and just wing it. It *says* they will not charge anything ahead of time. But I have heard that before.

It happened to me at DC fest. I used my debit card to hold the room, then paid cash for the bill when I left... had a receipt and everything, then they proceeded to run my debit card for the same amount... locked my account up (because I have it set for a low maximum daily limit) and I literally had to call my wife on my way home to get it straightened out because I was going to run out of fuel, and had no way to pay for it. I luckily had an emergency $20 bill in the glove box, which was just enough to get me back home. Barely.

I booked using my credit card and I just checked, they did not charge the card. Perhaps they'll do the same with your debit card.

I just got the first room report and it looks like 7 rooms have been booked. 3 more are available in our block, but I suspect I'll need to add more. The sooner people book, the sooner I can add more rooms for additional people.

If you'd like to attend this event and you need a place to stay, please book your room as soon as possible by clicking the link in the first post.

I will be staying that the hotel that everyone else is but I will be booking it a different way because I am able to get the room for a lot less through my AAA membership.

We have one room left on our block. If you haven’t reserved yet but would like to, please let me know so that I can increase our room count.

My son has been asking me about going to the auto show again this year, so I'll probably be meeting up with you guys again. I'll fill out the questionnaire here before too long on the other items going on.

Great! That means our block is full. If anyone else wants to book, let me know so that I can have the hotel add rooms to our block.

Looks like I can make this happen. Have talked to Lawson who will ask the hotel to add a few more rooms to the block. Before I make a reservation thought I'd ask here if anyone is interested in sharing a room for Fri/Sat so the cost can be split. If interested send me a PM here or post in this thread.
