Booking your hotel for AWA 2018

By | Convention Tips, News Updates

For 2018, Anime Weekend Atlanta is using a new hotel booking system through Connections Housing. No more will you have to sit on the Renaissance’s website constantly refreshing until 8am! No longer will you have to flip through all of the hotel offerings searching for an open space – our new system does all of that for you!

What you need to know about booking your AWA 2018 hotel:

The Hotel booking system will open Feb 5th, 2018 9am EST.

  1. You can book online using our handy dandy link that will be posted at https://awa-con.com/hotels, or by calling 404-842-0000
  2. Please do not call the hotel of your choice before, during or after your booking. They will not have records of it. You will be able to manage your booking at https://awa-con.com/hotels or by calling Connections Housing at: 404-842-0000
  3. You will not be able to go around this system to book at the Renaissance, Embassy Suites, or Sheraton. Your reservation may be erased if you attempt to book directly through the hotel.
  4. You will need a credit card valid through September 2018 to book, or you must call404-842-0000 to book.
  5. There are a limited amount of doubles at each hotel and they will be assigned in order of booking time NOT when you check in.
  6.  You can only reserve 2 rooms in your name to start, but the second room must be changed to another name within 2 weeks or the second reservation will be cancelled. Anyone with more than one room in their name after 2 weeks will have the second cancelled without warning or email.
  7. The Renaissance will not charge a deposit. You will be charged a cancellation fee after September 1st if you must cancel your reservation.
  8. Cancellation policy and deposits for other hotels will be posted on the site before it goes up.
  9. Please do not open the booking page in multiple tabs.
  10. Parking at the Renaissance and Galleria will be $5 for each time you go in and out, so please plan accordingly.
