OK- So, the question immediatly on everyone;s lips when we mention Otakon is invariably "How much will this sucker cost me?" Understandable. However, there is no straightforward answer to that question.

We divide the hotel room/rooms (More on that later) by how many people are in them. easy and sensible enough. therefore, the $141/night room, which, for four nights costs $564, will be $141/each if 4 people stay in it. Therefore, Image hosting by Photobucket Each person in the four person room pays 1/4th of the total cost ($564), which is $141.

If we have 5 people, this changes toImage hosting by Photobucket

And so on.

NOW, if we have More than 9 people, we WILL KEEP THE SECOND ROOM this is both for comfort and cost effectiveness.

2 rooms cost $1128. (yes, this seems expensive. You will not be paying over $130 for your hotel room. If we stick with one room, we'll have ~6 people in it (9 tops), which will lower the cost significantly.

If we had 8 people divided between 2 rooms, it would be effectively the same as having 4 in one room, which means everyone pays $141-Image hosting by Photobucket

When we have an odd number of people (say, 9) we will split everything evenly, so that noone pays more or less than anyone else, just beacaue their room happens to have more or less people in it. Image hosting by Photobucket

I hope this clears up any questions anyone has. Comment on this if you're still in the dark about anything!

Edit: There will probably be tax on the rooms. Seeing as we didn't calculate for this last year, and the price didn't deviate noticably then, I don't think it will be a big exspensive hairy deal.

I did calculate tax last year. I Believe it's 12.5% in Maryland
