Sleeping Room Block

Our group rate is $119/night for con weekend, the weekdays before and after the event for those doing extended stays. The sleeping rooms can hold up to 4 people comfortably. There is no additional cost for having 2, 3, or 4 people in your room. Rooms with a king bed may or may not come with a sofabed, but cots can be requested, or there is room for an air mattress if you’d like to bring one. All rooms contain a mini fridge and microwave.

The con has reserved a special block of 45+ rooms in the hotel’s tower section. At least one floor will be entirely TGIF/F attendees, plus our seven Party Rooms. We also have space on the floors above and below the Party Rooms, and on the first floor. All attendees who book in our block will be able to specifically request placement in our block regarding floor choice, proximity to the Party Rooms, etc.

We’re happy to help you find hotel roommates once you’re registered — We have a Slack channel specifically for this purpose! We always have a few rooms that contain new attendees who don’t know anyone and need roommates. It’s a great way to make friends and attend the con affordably. Please reach out to us if you need help, and we’ll get you squared away.

Booking a room

To book a room in our block, you unfortunately cannot use the hotel’s online booking site. Rooms must be booked over the phone directly with our sales representative, Vicki Arreguin. She knows us well and is personally handling our block and will make sure we are arranged on our assigned floors correctly. Please book through Vicki and not a third party site, such as Expedia or even the Golden Sails website, as we cannot guarantee you will get our con rate or end up on our assigned floors. We are required to meet a minimum quota of booked rooms with our contract.

You can reach Vicki in the group sales department at (562) 594-0210 or email her at to arrange for her to call you first. Tell her you are with TGIFF and would like to book a sleeping room. She will take good care of you!

If you cannot phone Vicki for any reason, we are happy to assist you in reaching her and booking your room. Email us!
