A VMworld Public Service Announcement from your favorite #vExpert :) (Book your hotel NOW!) 2014 Edition!

Some of you may have read my past VMworld posts like;

Well guess what.. the time is here again for this announcement! Which unfortunately has some good news and some bad news!

In 2013 I put that announcement of booking your hotel out in January, great, right? It lets you get ahead of things so you can get that hotel BOOKED! Well, this time I sat on it for a few months, hey the warzone gets in the way… It was on my task list and I finally decided to publish this helpful reminder.

Where the bad news starts to slip in is… I was looking at hotel pricing (using Marriott.com as an example) and HOLY OMG. The “cheapest” hotel I could find while still being near Moscone was $269 a night, then it went $409, $469, and then north of $500.  Oh that was with special discount codes too, to make it “cheaper”.  Yea, it’s time to book things, note: booking a hotel ‘reserves’ the room and you can cancel it at any time in theory.

When you use something like Airbnb you’re charged immediately but the prices tend to be a bit more reasonable.

I’m currently trying to line up my OWN Accommodations but I couldn’t let you suffer the same challenge I did while trying to find what ‘housing’ I’ll be pinned down with come VMworld :)   So get out there and get your booking on! Worst case you can cancel your hotel booking and free it up if you find yourself not attending or such!

    This has created speculation on whether or not the same will be true for the Accord Hybrid in the U.S.
