Conveniences.

Noisy Block.

The "Noisy block" will be available again this year, with the goal of providing a space where noise is more tolerable. It is still not a guarantee against noise complaints, it just reduces the chances.

To help the noisy block succeed, we also need volunteers to be in a "buffer block" around it. Buffer block volunteers are people who can sleep through noisy neighbors, but don't make much noise. They protect our noisy block from the rest of the hotel, and are vital to making the noisy block a reality.

The number of noisy block rooms made available will depend on the number of buffer block volunteers we get, so please volunteer!

To ask for a noisy block room, or to volunteer to be in a buffer room, do not ask the hotel directly; please ask convention staff. Simply reserve the room you desire, then contact the hotel lead. When contacting, include your hotel reservation confirmation number, the name the room is reserved under, and whether you want noisy block or a buffer room. Confirmation of "noisy block" status will come much later, only shortly before the convention.

F.A.Q.

I have to pay extra for 3 or 4 people?
What gives?
This hotel has a tiered pricing structure. The 4-person price is similar to other conventions, and the 2-person price is cheaper.
Since the 2-person price is cheaper, consider treating yourself to some breathing room.
What are check-in/check-out times? Check-in 3PM.
Check-out 11AM.
How do I make sure
that I have two beds in my room?
When booking a room, write "2 beds" in the notes and requests section.
If I use a debit card,
will some of my money be tied up?
The hotel reserves an extra $50/night for incidentals at the time of check-in. If you reserve your room using a debit card, this reservation will reduce your available balance. This reservation may take as many as 10 days to be returned to your account; your bank sets the timeframe.
As with most hotels, reserving your room with a credit card usually avoids this inconvenience.
Also, a trick: this reservation money can be used for food at most on-site restaurants.
Can I bring a pet with me? Yes! The GSR is a pet-friendly hotel. Extra charge of $30/night + 13% tax applies.
If you want to book a room for you and a pet, you must book by phone.
How many rooms are available at the GSR? There are nearly 2,000 hotel guest rooms are available, ranging from 420 to 922 square feet.
Does the hotel expect to sell out before March 28th? Yes. Staff recommends that you reserve your room as soon as possible. Like most hotels, only a credit card is needed to reserve a room. If you cancel with at least 48 hours to spare, your one-night deposit will be refunded.
What if we have large groups that wish to room together? The 3rd and 4th person in the room are an extra $10/night. Many rooms offer connectors to accommodate large groups. Book your room by phone if you want to request connecting rooms.
What kind of amenities
are provided for the guest rooms?
  • Premium channels and pay-per-view movies
  • Triple Sheet Bedding
  • King or 2 queen beds
  • 24-hour room service
  • Hair Dryer
  • Iron with ironing board
  • Spectacular views of the surrounding Reno area
