Okay, this is it… one of the last major anxiety-inducing sales of the year if you’re trying to attend San Diego Comic-Con. As some have called it, Hotelpocalyspe — and not without good reason. It’s enormously difficult to snag one of those coveted downtown rooms. But it can be done (we got one last year!).


Here’s all the info you need…. and then rest up, pray up, and empty your bladder while you wait in the OnPeak waiting room. Once you’re into the hotel request area, though, you can take your time. Don’t rush. But be prepared well ahead of time.

Got it? Okay, here’s the official announcement from OnPeak and Comic-Con:

Please find the link to access the onPeak Housing landing page for Comic-Con International 2017 hotel room requests below. OnPeak is the official housing provider for Comic-Con International.

To understand how our hotel request process works, and to avoid delays during the request process, please look at our hotel page in advance at Be sure to look at the hotel PDF before housing opens and choose your top six (6) hotels in the downtown area and your top six (6) choices outside of the downtown area.

  • The waiting room will open on April 26, around 8:00 AM PDT. You cannot enter the waiting room before that time. Entering the waiting room early will not increase your chances of getting a room.
  • Form submission by web or phone starts at 9:00 AM PDT.
  • Entering the waiting room after the 9:00 AM PDT will decrease your chances of getting a room.

Thank you for your continued support.
