BIG-TIME RAFFLE AT THE SHERATON, Hotel Reservation Cut Off Dates Soon!

Postby Kagomechan » Thu Feb 25, 2010 5:18 pm

Cut-off dates for reserving a room a the Sheraton are approaching fast. The cut-off date for pre-paid reservations is Monday, March 1st, 2010. For those looking to pay at check-in the cut-off date is Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010. Remember, you cannot get the best rate possible at the Sheraton if you do not book through the [url=http://www.animeboston.com/location/hotel/]Hotel Information Page[/url].

As a special bonus, we're trying something new. All attendees who stay at the Sheraton can enter a raffle to win one of several prizes: 3 Program Guides autographed by ALL guests, 3 Weekend Memberships to Anime Boston 2011, an Anime Boston merchandise basket, DVDs, special seating at the Masquerade (no waiting in line!), and more! The only way to enter this contest is to book your room at the Sheraton through the Anime Boston hotel blocks, so make your reservation soon! Each room will get a sheet of raffle tickets that need to be filled out before turning them in to Convention Operations in the Hynes. ALL attendees staying at the Sheraton are eligible to WIN

There will be a cut-off time when we will stop passing out, and accepting raffle tickets, as we will be announcing the raffle winners prior to Sunday. When the cut-off time is announced, we'll update the front page again.

Is this no matter how many nights you stay at the Sheraton (let's say I choose to do one night instead of two or three)? When would the raffle be held? How will attendees be contacted?

The raffle will be conducted on Saturday so that people who win the special seating for Masquerade can be notified. Therefore, anyone that checks in by Saturday noonish will be entered in the raffle.

We'll update with the deadline for entries when we nail that down.

Now that's exciting. How will the tickets be passed out. Will they be available in the rooms or do we have to go to Con Ops and show our Sheraton key card or something?

One more question if you don't mind. Does it matter which of the blocks (party or quiet) you book a room for?

It matters not, just make sure that the Sheraton knows you're in the Anime Boston room block.

I have a question. What if for some reason something happens in the computers and they do not see that they are suppose to give me tickets. do I get someone from the con to tell them that they are to give me tickets too or what. sorry if I seem paranoid but I have had a lot of unfortunate things happen to me with this same hotel.

As long as you made your reservation through the [url=http://www.animeboston.com/location/hotel/]Hotel Information Page[/url] you will all set. Just make you sure you have your reservation confirmation E-mail when you check in.
