    Is there a list of hotels floating around that are near the Gaylord? Abby and I would love to stay on-site this year, but as far as our money is concerned we probably will not be able to. We originally were staying out near the airport; but I want to look at options in Grapevine by itself as well.

    Nothing within walking distance like the Anatole had so plan on parking which is $22 a day.

    These are all mostly right down the street before the Grapevine Mills mall, about a 8-10 min drive.

    Great Wolf Lodge

    Courtyard by Marriott

    TownPlace Suites by Marriott

    Embassy Suites By Hilton

    Hyatt Place - Probably the 2nd cheapest around $155 a night.

    Hilton DFW lakes Executive Conference Center

    Homewood Suites by Hilton - Looks to be around $155 - $170ish for a small room.

    SpringHill Suites by Marriott

    Residence Inn by Marriott

    Comfort Suites - The cheapest hotel on the list as low as $124 a night for a king room paid in full.


    There are a few cheaper hotels down near 114 and main street. About a 9-12 min drive from the Gaylord.

    Super 8 about $104 a night, maybe less if you pay in full.

    Comfort Inn $90 for a pay in full, $112 pay at check in.


    There are some other cheaper hotels closer to the airport off of 114 but those are about a 15 min drive.

    Hope this helps.

    But drunk waterslide sounds like an interesting way to spend an evening. LOL

    I'm currently talking to my department to see if there's anything I can do... I may be allowed to take off a few days. But I'll have to fight for it. Of course, Quakecon is more than worth the fight.

    Would it help if we all showed up at your school like this until they agreed?

    I feel like even speculation might not have much behind it considering the difference between when we got dates for QC2016 and when we got dates for QC2017 but I believe March was the timeframe for the first VIP ticket rollouts last year...so...maybe just a little longer?

    Seat transfers are no longer allowed. They're taking this back to old school rules, Linecon 2017.

    We are hoping they (BYOC Seats) go on sale by the end of the month, otherwise no QC for us this year (We'll head to Las Vegas instead for a game tournament).

    Hey, I was being truthful but was asked specifically to speculate...

    Edit: Added speculation and fakenews tags to last post to make it less confusing.

    You can still drunk waterslide at the Gaylord. They have a waterpark too, but it's outside.
