  • Defcon Thursday night at the Riv, sold-out

    You may remember this thread about public reservations of rooms during Defcon weekend being sold out.

    UPDATE:
    The Thursday before Defcon now shows up as Sold-Out on the Defcon Reservations Page.

    Saturday stays require a previous night's reservation according to this map of reservations.

    (The old thread has gone too long without posts, so I am starting a new one with this new information.)

          I just got Fri-Mon, they did not seem to care that I was traveling 12,000 miles to be there. Sold out means sold out.

          Guess I'll spend a night at the AP!

              We got a room at the Circus Circus. Much cheaper, and still quite close...

              (and no, they didn't tear it down... yet)

                  The Riv website for International Association of Chiefs of Police-Impaired Driving Conference still shows rooms for Thursday

                  https://safe.rivierahotel.com/cgi-bi...60):;IACPJIB;?,

                  and says they will only hold the block until June 28. So I would expect some more rooms to be available then :)

                  I just booked my room.........

                    Re: Defcon Thursday night at the Riv, sold-out

                    Thursday, Friday, Saturday Defcon reservations, all sold-out:
                    https://safe.rivierahotel.com/cgi-bi...60):;DEFCON7;?

                    However, the Public Reservation appear to be open again:
                    https://safe.rivierahotel.com/cgi-bi...+UP(A2560):;;?

                    What may have happened:
                    Defcon reservations block(s) were moved back out to the public space for "normals" to reserve. (Just a guess.)

                    Non-Defcon,Public reservations block still shows Thursday as booked.

                    Another option is that another convention gave up their blocks freeing up the public blocks.

                      I just booked Thurs-Sun under that link. Oops. I'm hoping for an IACP room key.

                          Well I called even though thur-sat showed as sold on defcon block.
                          Thursday is sold regardless, but they gave me fri-sat for "defcon block"
                          I had the lady confirm it multiple times as I was booking it..

                          I have just called regarding the sunday, although it shows available on the site.
                          they state $164 if you call, and they are no longer accepting for the block.

                            I just booked my room at the Riviera by calling the front desk. I had to pay regular price for the night that where fully booked under Defcon block but had the defcon rate for the other nights.

                              Yep. It looks like that police chief's thing gave up some of their rooms too, to the public reservations block, because now, Thursday is available in the public reservations block:

                              Welcome to the Riviera-- where room availability it always in a state of flux... then again, maybe hey are just flux-ing around with their schedule. ;-)
