My wife and I have done a lot of traveling to various hotels for work over the years and putting deposits down for our stays is not a common practice.
Also, there was no mention of this in the reservation form.
Unacceptable. The Hyatt F-ed up? Too bad. BotCon F-ed up? Too bad.
Yeah, I agree. I had to shuffle around some financial planning because of this, even if it's only $150. They shouldn't hold us responsible for their oversight. Is there anything we can do to let them know our satisfaction?
Also, last year was my first BotCon, and I enjoyed a lot of it. This year if I end up going I will go only for the exclusives and maybe a couple of panels. The dealer room? Not so much, unless they have some really cool exclusive figures.
For anyone whose first time it would be, definitely go with the Primus package. You only have 1 chance to go to your first BotCon, and that's the right way to do it.
