Nekocon was this weekend.
Not a bad anime con but the Embassy Suites that they have near the Coliseum just does not seem to be up to it.
Three elevators seem limited but not too bad. Wait times this year were not excessive.
Last year during the con they had a elevator breakdown, This year at least they did not have that problem but there were still some wait lines.
Not sure how many rooms they had set aside as reserved for the convention but as usual they never seem to have enough.
They also charge a lot for the room, then charge for the internet connection.
I traveled over quite a bit of TX in October and stayed in several Hilton owned hotels. All month none of them charged for internet. Yet here was a hotel doing so. $229 PER NIGHT for a 'suite' sitting room in the front, bathroom and a bedroom in the back. and $9.99 for 24 hours connection. 34k up/ less than a meg down.
It is just enough that I may be turning my back on Neko-con. Kinda depends on my daughter as walking around the cons buying things for her is my chief task. Taking photos like these are just my hobby :-)
I guess we will have to see what Katsu-con (feburary), Animazement (May) Otakon (July-Aug) bring.
