Home Con News SDCC 2017: Early Bird Hotel Sale now open

Ooh, they’ve sprung this one on us. And you thought Comic-Con International would be concentrating all of its efforts on today’s Pro-Registration comp/guest badge sale, but no-oooo…

Those that have their hearts on attending this year’s San Diego Comic-Con will be wanting to put all the pieces together for their stay in July, from flights, to parking, and of course, accommodation.

One of the ways that those that certainly know that they are going – successful applicants of the Returning Registration Badge Sale a few weeks back – is they can now take part in the Early Bird Hotel Sale: a collection of limited hotel rooms, normally located in the Mission Valley and Airport area, at discounted rates.

The pros for the Early Bird Hotel Sale is pretty apparent: a reduction in room rates, handy transportation with the free Shuttle Service throughout the duration of the convention and, of course, the certainty of a bed at the end of a long SDCC day – something you can’t necessarily rely on in the General Hotel Sale (date to be confirmed). And then there’s the inevitable cons for the arrangement: hotels that are much further away from the action Downtown, non-refundable payments, no exchanges… Once you’ve paid your cash, that’s it, you’re locked in.

The hotels available in the Early Bird Sale are:

  • Courtyard By Marriott SD Airport / Liberty Station (2592 Laning Road)
  • Courtyard By Marriott SD Mission Valley (595 Hotel Circle South)
  • Crowne Plaza San Diego (2270 Hotel Circle North)
  • Days Hotel SD Hotel Circle (Mission Valley) (543 Hotel Circle South)
  • DoubleTree San Diego Mission Valley (7450 Hazard Center Drive)
  • Handlery Hotel San Diego (950 Hotel Circle North)
  • Hilton San Diego Mission Valley (901 Camino del Rio South)
  • San Diego Marriott Mission Valley (8757 Rio San Diego Drive)
  • Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina (1380 Harbor Island Drive)
  • Sheraton Mission Valley, San Diego (1433 Camino Del Rio South)
  • Town and Country Resort (500 Hotel Circle North)

Note: there’s a host of packages and requirements for each location – do check the various listings for each before making a decision.
