I am NOT an official representative of Dragon Con Inc. I'm just passing along the info that I know to be true.

If you made reservations at either the Baymont or Wyndham hotels, you need to be made aware that both of those hotels are closing permanently on August 15th.


The company that owns both those hotels has sold them and is closing them down so that their new owners can use them. This is rumored to be Georgia State University who will convert them to dorms.

Again, this is NOT Dragon Con's fault. Each hotel is its own separate company and entity.

Currently the best way to handle this situation is to call the hotel and ask to verify your reservation and go from there.
There are still reservations available at some of the overflow hotels but most are not within 4 blocks of D*C proper. There are still plenty of rooms at the hotels at the airport. And there are free shuttles running between those hotels and D*C.

Also, hotels consistently make rooms available in the D*C block as time goes by so if you call every Monday at 8am to the main 4 hotels, there is a chance someone will have canceled.

Folks, I can't stress this enough, regardless of where you are staying,CALL AND VERIFY YOUR HOTEL RESERVATIONS NOW. Which this new demand for rooms, I suspect a lot of mistakes are going to be made and other reservations are going to be screwed up.

Oh, isn't that going to be fun. What odds are you willing to lay that the Dragon*Con attendees will be a lot more pleasant and forgiving about it than the football fans who got hotel rooms there?


To anyone with rooms there.

I called the Baymont and was transfered to a very nice woman in reservations who seems to be handling all of this. I'm not sure what arrangements are being made for people who are in the Dragoncon block that the hotel set aside, BUT I found out that I was not in the Dragoncon block, and that reservations had been made for me at a sister property. Turns out that sister property is the Georgia Terrace. It's a serious step up, and they honored my rates at the Baymont. The Drawback is that it's more distant from the base Dragoncon hotels. Walking back and forth may be out. The best thing to do is to call the Baymont or the Wyndham and be NICE. I work for a hotel. I know these ladies are getting yelled at. A little bit of kindness will probably go a long way towards communication, and help.

The number is: 404-659-2727

Clearly, DragonCon screwed up somewhere.

We can actually prove this is not the case: There don't appear to be any endless lines involved.
