    Hello everyone.   I wanted to see if anyone was in the San Antonio, TX area for a ride and a room split.  The room can be in the same hotel for the con or next door to it, which in it is preferred.   Best case would be the same group for both.  This would be my 1st RTX and wanted to ask before purchasing a pass along for requesting for time off from work as it can be a nightmare to get time off.  Overall I don't mind co-ed ride and room but might as well go mostly male or all male to be safe.  Granted I'm really looking forward to meeting some new people.  Just in case I'm a con vet but haven't been to one for about 10 years.

    Hi all! My friends and I will be coming down on Tuesday the second and checking out Monday the 8th. We currently have a two Queen room at the Fairmont which is connected to the ACC. There are four of us in the room. Me and my BFF will take a bed and our friend and her husband will take the other. We are willing to shove two more people into the room to combat the cost. It's looking like if we get two more people, after fees and such, it will be around 215 a person for the week.

    In case you want to know about us, I am a teacher (and will be a guardian this year) and my best friend is a Cosmetologist. My other friend works at gamestop and her husband works for the local school district. We are LGBT+ friendly! Anyone is welcome. Just let us know! 


    *Spots are filled for now!! I will post again if something happens.

The apartments is Camden Lamar heights. the room is bought and paid for already. the DATE are from the 3rd to the 8th. that 5 nights of stay there. if you look it up it is about 5 miles form the ACC and a 10 min drive. not too bad. Its a 2 bed room fully furnished apartment and there is free parking. it have places to eat and bar within walking distances of it. i can have 3 others to stay there. i get the master bedroom. i get a great deal on it as it a work perk. i only ask for $100 for each person to stay there. that's only $20 a night... can't beat that. they must respect the place and the people that work there. i work for the company so i don't want any BS to go on there.  so message me if you are interested.

    In reply to ToriJCaboose Hello, my name is Daniel and I see you're looking for an extra person to combat the price for the room of the hotel. If you and your friends are still looking to someone, I would like to volunteer as tribute.

    A little bit about myself, I work in a kitchen as a lead and have been a fan on RT since 2010/2011. This will be my third(3rd) year of RTX and this will be my first(1st) of hopefully many more, year being a Guardian!

    I should also arrive to Austin on Tuesday(2nd) as well.

    Thank you!

    Hey everyone, I've got a room booked at the JWM for Wednesday July 3rd to Monday the 8th. Because we're gold card members at the Marriot, we get free wifi and access to a free breakfast in the mornings. There are three of us so far, my friend Corey, our mutual friend Anna, and me. We can fit one more person, as there are two queen beds and Corey and I are gonna share one. A female would be preferable, as Anna is female herself, although if a guy wants to join, we can easily move it so they'd share a bed with Corey, and Anna and I share the other.


    A little bit about us, Corey is a recent graduate with a major in American Sign Language.

    Anna is going to be a guardian for the second time this year, she studies editing.

    I'm a animation and game development major.

    There will be a fourth member with us, my service dog Kaluo, a mutt and lovable friend. So if you're allergic to dogs, this might not be best for you.


    The room itself will cost about 275-300 per person, depending on the taxes.

    This will be Corey and I's third RTX.


    Excited to go again!

    I am a first time RTX goer and I'm looking for a place close to the convention center. I would prefer a female roommate and the cost is relatively cheap for the week. If you need more information about me, feel free to message me! Thanks!

    Hello all have a room at the Hilton Garden Inn, 2 Queen Beds with Wi-Fi, within two blocks of the convention center.  I am arriving on the 3rd and leaving on the 8th. After all the fees are added up it is just under $300 per-person (Willing to work with people). As of right now it is just me going and this will be my first RTX.


    A bit about me; I am in school for Programing, I work as a QA for Microsoft Games, and I am working on developing my own games. I am also a Cosplayer, so other Cosplayers are welcome in the room.

    Hi all. Looking for roommates for this year's RTX. I already have spots filled out with people I roomed with last year, but some of them can't make it this year and we need to keep our numbers up to keep costs down.

    The room is at the Residence Inn by Marriott for Thursday July 4th to Monday July 8th, is at the corner of 4th and Trinity, and right across those streets from the convention center. It comes with a Queen-size bed, a foldout sofa bed, a full kitchen (stove, fridge and freezer, microwave, sink, some dishes/flatware/cookware, etc), And the usual TV setup (Confirmed last year that consoles work on them). It also comes with complimentary buffet breakfast for every morning of your stay (They even let you package up some for later in a container they provide).

    The per person cost varies depending on the number of people per room. Right now there's four of us each shouldering $300.00 but the cost can come down to 275 or 250 if we get one or two more people. There's plenty of floor space for mattresses or sleeping bags, and I plan on getting one myself just in case.

    Currently have two spots open on my room at the Hilton next to the ACC, it's a double bed and there is already one person in the room with me. 

    I'm cool with getting 3 people total in the room, but it'll cost more per person that way, so 4 would be much more affordable.

    Update, spots have been filled as of now.
