So for the first year the wait list has failed the ATL group, and we are looking for a room. Right now there are 4 of us with a possible 5th, so we are really looking for a full room, but would be willing to stay with a few others. In fact, there IS a 2-room corner suite at the Embassy Suites right next to the convention center that would work but we would want to split the cost with at least one or two more people (it's $259 per night).

So what we're looking for is either a whole room that someone would be willing to transfer, a room with 2-3 people who would be willing to house 4-5 more, or 1-3 people who would be willing to go in on an awesome huge corner suite with us. Thanks!

Since you apparently pre-registered with the housing block back in January, you must have a gencon.com login. My recommendation (assuming you don't mind sharing with people who aren't SWM gamers) would be to get on the Travel, Housing, and Dining forum over there (community link from the bottom of the main page). There are lots of people over there looking to share/transfer rooms.

Currently there are not alot actually wanting to get rid of their rooms. They had a big snafoo this year due to a construction issue and have had to Redirect 75 people who registered. Basically anyone on the housing waiting list will not be getting any rooms through the housing block because of this issue.

i am Guessing that you are wanting a hotel Reasonably close to the Convention Center, Other wise i would recommend either getting one in Indy that is a short drive or even by the airport. I myself was looking for a room until more recently. We live 30 minutes away, but a room would still have been nice so we did not have to lug our stuff back and forth all weekend, and a place to stay Friday night so we do not have to drive home late. But That is not in the budget anymore.

I will say if you do not mind a half hour drive straight on interstate. Try Greenfield. we have numerous hotels and usually are not booked yet.

Yeah, from what I had read the Crowne not finishing renovations on 75 rooms messed a lot up, in addition to there being fewer cancellations this year than in past years.

Anyway, we got it figured out; there was actually a 2-room corner executive suite available at Embassy Suites, and we managed to get 2 more in addition to the 4 of us coming up from ATL so the price stays reasonable.

Weird - we got a room about a mile away originally (closest available at the time), but we requested to be on the wait list for one of the 2 rockstar hotels across the street. We just got bumped up to the Westin a few weeks ago.

Guess we got lucky

Actually We are looking for a room ourselves if anyone has one they need to drop or transfer. We dont have to have one but we have been trying to get one for several monsths. For us though it would have to be close to the Convention because we live 30 miles away. We just want a room we can go to Throughout the weekend when we are tired or need to drop things off. But we need our own because on Friday and Saturday nights we do not want to go home. We planned on staying out in Indy to make it easier, and so we can do a little more than usual.
