The San Ramon Marriott has been DunDraCon's home since 1992, and we enjoy a good relationship with the hotel staff and services.
Sold Out!The Marriott reports that it has sold all the rooms it can block for us for Friday and Saturday, February 16 and 17, 2018. (As of September 7, it was still possible to extend an existing reservation to Thursday the 15th or Sunday the 18th.)
Some rooms will open up as cancellations come in, as they always do - often in the last two weeks before the con. So keep trying... but make alternative arrangements in case the effort doesn't pan out. Check our Alternative Hotel page for overflow housing deals we have made with other hotels.
If you have a room at the Marriott, consider listing it on the Room-share page. You've no obligation to accept any particular offer for it, but if you wind up corresponding with someone congenial, you could make a new friend for life....
So why do we stay here when it fills up so fast? We have not found a property of the correct size that will talk to us - and we've looked. We want a place that's comfortably bigger than our beloved Marriott, but small enough for us to be a major factor in its business. That is, to move, we'd need:
- 500 to 600 sleeping rooms.
- 18,000 to 28,000 square feet of function space.
- 25 to 30 rooms that would comfortably hold one game; either converted sleeping rooms or small board rooms.
- adequate parking, access via public transportation, or both.
- location within the Bay Area.
- willingness to work with us for President's Day weekend.
