............................................................................
Update: 8.25.10
The special negotiated rate for hotel reservations is now closed. Anyone in need of a room for TDIFest MUST contact me directly so I can negotiate with the hotel. I CANNOT guarantee that you will get the same negotiated price of $99 per night on any rooms booked between now and Fest, but I can promise you that I will try my best to help you get the best price possible.

Please let me know if you have any further questions. We look forward to seeing you there!

Sheraton central reservations (800 number) does have TDIFest 2010 on record, but couldn't book a room as it shows "None available".
Under a different rate plan I could book, but that was $122.33 / night plus taxes and fees.

Jon, Thanks for the note... I'll call them first thing tomorrow to check what's up. :( Sorry about that.

I just wanted to give everyone an update:
contacted the hotel immediately the next day, however holiday vacations have prevented prompt attention from hotel staff. now that everyone has returned, attention to these matters is being given.

We were able to secure an online check-in. a link will be provided upon resolution of this situation. just finalizing the details on the reservations. Should be set in within the next couple of days.

I do apologize to everyone for this, I should have personally tested it before posting. thank you for your patience.

And we're set to roll. I've double and triple checked the check in process myself and it's a go... both online and telephone reservations.

Can't wait to see you there!

Usually there is a couple hour or so meet-n-greet on Friday night. But the talks and vendors don't happen until Saturday morning.

I would count on the banquet Sunday night ending between 9:00-10:00, depending on when it gets started.

Not bad :)

Is internet access concidered an incidental, and if so, how much is it?

Does it start Friday night or Sat. morning. Ends Sunday night what time?
The organizers at past fests have had agendas with events from Friday afternoon through Sunday evening.
So make your own agenda for Thursday, Thursday night, Friday morning, Friday night, Saturday night, Monday, Monday night, Tuesday,......:D

Well I might come even if I don't own a TDI yet but I'll probably stay with family instead of booking the hotel.

Hi, the reservations guy I talked to on March 10 at the Sheraton said the TDI Fest block of rooms is full, or almost full. We got a king room for two nights and the third night, Sunday, we had to switch to a two queen room. Just a heads up.

what, full already? How big was the block? I can't believe that many ppl registered yet? really! I was going to wait until June-ish. I'm still getting the vacation approved.

Do you think they sold the block to non club ppl? Is something else happening that w/e?

Zippy needs to step in anytime now??? That can not be correct........
Yes, I thought it was strange for sure. They emailed me two confirmation numbers and said when I check in give both and they will probably be able to keep us in the same room. Gave me the TDI rate though, good thing.
