Looking For Roommates
Name / Age / Gender: Juju, 25 (26 at con), female.
Hotel your offering: Freehand Los Angeles
Hotel rates: $250 per person (3 bed spots)
How long are you staying: July 4th - 8th (day 0-4)
Where are you coming from: Santa Clarita, CA
Who do you prefer to stay: 21+ if you plan on drinking.

Requirements: Must pay via paypal/squarecash or in person at least 2 weeks prior to avoid bailing. Be nice and courteous. If you come in stumbling and puking at 3am then get your stuff and leave, [U]no refund[/U]. If I come back to a mess everywhere and party without my consent, same outcome. Try to make bathroom time no longer than [U]30 mins[/U] unless you're the last one getting ready of course. Other than that, if you're chill and [U]420 friendly[/U] we will get along :) since all of my beds are separated, it's best for friends traveling in big groups or solo goers just wanted a sleeping space to yourself. Couples might find it a little awkward but it's up to you!

Amenities: This room has 4 twin beds but I am keeping one bed vacant to help keep things uncrowded, it will where my cosplay items will go since I tend to carry a lot and my boyfriend and I will be sleeping on an air mattress on the floor. I always provide snacks and drinks to share, however if there is something you bring and don't want shared don't be shy and say so it's k :) Typically I try to get to bed [U]no later than 1-2[/U], sometimes earlier tho depending on next days schedule. Please, shower, deo, and just chill vibes! I love this place because it's clean and decently priced.

I also cosplay and have no problem helping, this is my 14th AX so I am very familiar to this all. Any questions you have feel free to ask as well. Thanks guys hope to meet you soon!

Name: Yuuichi
Hotel: Hotel Indigo
Nights Booked: Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday (4 nights)
Price: $450 (bed) (Full convention, no per night rates)
Availability: 1 bed

Requirements of Roommates:
Age: 18+
Alcohol: Okay as long as not interrupting roommates and neighbors
Sleeping habits:Lights Out and Quiet from 12 Midnight to 6 AM

Email: [email][email protected][/email] - Please title email with "AX 2018 RS"

Description of Myself: I am a 23-year old male who will be attending Anime Expo for the fourth time.


Why is your rate so [email protected]$#ing expensive?
I try to maintain a humane rooming situation for everyone. Also, hotel rates have been increasing over the past few years due to the increasing attendance of AX and limited hotel space.

What do we do about food (water)?
I am planning a buy-in pool of water and basic snacks to help keep everyone hydrated and somewhat satiated during the convention. I will also try to schedule optional group meals so we can all meet, sit, relax, and eat. No one has to attend, but it is a great way to meet other fans and make friendships. I will do my best to avoid major gatherings and events when scheduling them.

Is there a Girl/Guy Only room?
Sadly, I need to make rooms co-ed to ensure room costs are fully covered. I will ensure beds are single gendered and will create single gender room when possible.

What is your cancellation policy?
I understand life happens and unexpected things pop up. I'd appreciate if you can decide if you're cancelling by the end of May. I'll accept your cancellation up to a week before the convention. However, it's very hard to guarantee a full refund within two month of the convention. The reason for this is there's other people counting on everyone paying their fair share. A single missing person per room increases everyone's cost by as much as $120.

-Any other questions, please feel free to ask via my contact information.

Name / Age / Gender: Kaela / 25/ Female also my friend Christian is running the room.
Hotel: JW Marriott
Hotel rates: $$$
How long are you staying: July 4th - July 9th
Where are you coming from: Inland Empire
Space Available: 3 (only floor space)

Requirements: Good Hygiene! (Please shower regularly! Use deodorant, brush your teeth, keep your things together and your sleeping area clean.) No Drugs, this is also a non-smoking room (no vaping in the room, no cigarettes, no weed sorry). This room is 18+ No Exceptions (if possible we would like to keep it 21+ because we do drink but we will not be letting anyone under the age of 21 drink.) if you are a parent bringing a under age child with you please do not get in contact with me. There will be ZERO tolerance for any kind of drama! This is a fun drama free room! (If you are causing drama you will be asked to leave and you will not receive a refund.) if you are going to drink please provide your own alcohol and please know your limit (we do not want to babysit you and we do not want people drinking till they get sick). Payment will be do in advance not when you arrive. (To keep things running smoothly with the hotel room and check in you will need to pay in advance before the convention for the simple reason everyone shows up at different times and different days.)

Amenities: Me and my friend have been running rooms together for the past 5 years, everyone that stays with us always has a great time! We do not book through the AX website because of all of the AX rules they have. We do book a Junior Suite (which is a really big room), please keep in mind that since we do not book through the AX site and we book a much bigger room we do not get the AX discount on our room so we are paying full price. We provide Drinks (soda, water, juice) and food (sandwiches and snacks) which is already included in the room price. We always have tons of anime and video games in the room. You are more the welcome to tag along with me or my friend during the convention if you want too, we want to make sure no one in our room feels singled out. If you ever have any issues don't hesitate to get ahols of Christian or myself.

Other Information: We are a very loud room, we like to have fun and most nights we sont wnd up going to bed till around 3-5 am. But if you can sleep with all the noise and lights on you're more than welcome in this room! If you cant sleep with a lot of noise then this room probably isnt for you, again were here to have fun so we dont want people complaining or getting mad about us being noisy all night. We do ask that your bring what you will need to be comfortable since there is only floor space in this room (bring your own pillows, blankets, showering towls, shampoo whatever els you shower with daily.) Thats all for now I cant wait to get a awesome group of people to fill up the room this year!!! Lets make this an awesome 2018 AX!!!

Contact: please contact me via email if interested because I probably will not check my nessages on here!! [email][email protected][/email] (please put something regarding the AX room in the subject line) also please specify age and gender when contacting me.

[i][b]. . . looking for an experienced room head?[/b][/i]
I'm a female! I've been attending AX since 2003 and this is my 11th year running hotel rooms in DTLA. Previous years have been a blast and many roommates are returning. I'm looking for some great new roommates to round out the rooms. It's always a ton of fun with a mixture of old and new faces. Current roommates' ages run the gamut from 18 - 35.

[i][b]. . . looking for a no-headaches room?[/b][/i]
I do charge a small overhead in case of cancellations, damages, or theft. You will not pay any more than stated here and you only need to worry about your spot (but be prepared to pay for any damages you make). I take care of everything else, such as any hotel or roommate issues.

[i][b]. . . looking for a great group to hang out with?[/b][/i]
There will be a Day 0 group dinner for the roommates to get to know each other. In the past we have dined at famous local eateries and even had catered buffets just for us at a downtown Asian restaurant. There have also been group outings to nearby museums.
We also split up and meet again at various events throughout the con according to our interests.
** Are you a foodie? Come join me in eating across downtown and at the food trucks. The food truck lot at Anime Expo was originally my idea.

[*][color=#0000cd][i]No damages, theft, or additional charges to the room without permission[/i]
[*][color=#0000cd][i]Shower daily[/i]
[*][color=#0000cd][i]NO smoking but minimal drinking is fine - no parties allowed[/i]

[*][color=#0000cd][i]Please practice basic common courtesy.[/i]
[color=#0000cd]** I've never had this happen but if you do cause problems, you will be kicked out of the room without a refund and you will be liable for any and all damages.
