How is the New Facility?

(Answering purely on the facility, not the whole Con) It was a mixed bag:

*Gaming rooms*
The large PFS room was certainly noisy. We did a lot of leaning in and concentrating to get the story. (GMs and many players were champs, projecting, or sometimes outright shouting, to make themselves heard)

I agree that the parking lot tent was actually much quieter and, with the breeze, quite pleasant.

*Marriott doing what they promised*
My wife (Destruc-TOR) and I had a similar story to Mad Alchemist. We did not expect a fridge in every room, but requested and confirmed, half a year in advance, that we would have one.

Day 1 (Thurs) - No fridge. Showed confirmation and told that, "Sorry, everyone at the convention requested one, so there are none available. We will put you on the list"
Day 3 - Checked on status and told that we were not on any list.
Day 4 - (Evening, after convention and many had checked out) Told that still none available.

*Wi-Fi*
Free in the lobby, as advertised. Adequate.

*Transport*
Destruc-TOR and I used public transport to and from downtown Seattle and found it to be fine.

*Surrounding area*
Venturing out to the nearby area for food, visits to Uncle's Games, and one to the farmers' market, we thought it was fine.

This was my first time in the States, so I wasn't sure to expect. From previous travel around I'd expected a fridge, hot water jug etc.. (bit suprised I didn't have them - but no worries).

*gaming rooms*
The banquet room was loud and full of serious faces (but volume has been an issue at any Con I have gm'd at or played) it's part of being at a Con.
The tent on the mezzanine was nice, it got a bit warm on the Sunday but the breeze was lovely I had no complaints.

*wifi*
I had issues getting access in the lobby; both with my laptop and my Galaxy S2. They did have free computers/internet in the lobby which allowed me to keep in contact.

*highlights*
Watching Kyle Baird's face as he advised *our GM* in Rats of Round Mountain (to save his precious dragon from our wrath).
Putting faces to all those names I see on the boards
It was an awesome experience to see the passion that Pazio brings to making these tools for us all to enjoy.
It was just a buzz to find myself in a lift with Erik Mona... or find yourself chatting to Charlie and his partner Holly in line for the banquet.

+1 to this. The registration line did move fairly quickly, however, it is much less stressful, to be able to pick up badges the night before and to be able to take that time in the morning to get orientated to the different event locations. Especially when you one is trying to coordinate a family of 4.

When I flew into SEA-TAC, I hopped on the light rail and rode that down to International District for $2.75. I then bought a bus ticket ($2.50) and rode that to Redmond Town Center, and then walked 2 blocks to the hotel.

Wait, wasn't the Con AT the Redmond Town Center? I take it you stayed at a hotel other than the Marriot? Or am I not understanding something?

Thanks!

The bus stop is a couple blocks from the hotel, but the stop is considered the town center stop as it's the closest one.

Yep, what Robert said.

That's what you thought I was doing? No, no, no. I was there to make sure you guys were victorious! I swear!
