SNAFU Con Hotel Information

Book Your Room!

Hotel registration is now open for SNAFU Con 2017! There are lots of great reasons to get a room even if you're a local – you can handle cosplay emergencies, take a shower, swim in the pool, store your stuff, and maybe even sleep. You'll also get one free upgrade to a VIP badge for each night of your stay. Book before August 18th to lock in these discounted rates.

Book Your Room Online

The room images in the online booking system haven't been updated for the Nugget's recent renovations, so be sure to check the Available Rooms section below before choosing a room. If you want to book more than one room, or if more than two people will be staying in your room, you'll need to click "Guests & Rooms" at the top of the screen after clicking the "Book Now" button.

If you prefer to book over the phone you can do so by calling 1‑800‑648‑1177 or 1‑775‑356‑3300 and mentioning our group code GSNAF17. To claim your VIP benefits for phone registrations or if you've already registered you'll need to email your confirmation number to [email protected]

A $12.50 per night resort fee and the 13.5% Washoe County room tax will be assessed in addition to the room rate. You will need to provide a credit card when you register, but it will not be charged until you check in.


VIPs receive special considerations at the convention including priority seating at large events like the masquerade, priority placement in long lines like those at registration or the rave, access to special VIP-only events, free con swag, and discounts at the con store.

The best way to become a VIP is to register for a hotel room with our venue. You'll automatically receive one free VIP upgrade per night of your stay if you register online. If you register by phone or in person, or if you've booked a room outside our group, please email us at [email protected] with your confirmation number to claim your VIP upgrades. Your hotel registration must be in our group in order to receive your VIP upgrades. You should receive an email within 24 hours of registering your hotel room. If you don't receive the email, please reach out to us at [email protected] to ensure your room is counted.

You can pass your VIP upgrades on to someone else if you won't be attending or if you have more than you need. To do so email us at [email protected] Make sure to do so as soon as possible; we cannot reallocate VIP upgrades at con.

If you don't want a hotel room but you do want to be a VIP you can purchase a VIP upgrade for the price of the hotel's most expensive room-night, currently $124. You will automatically be billed for any upgrades you apply to the badges in your group beyond those you are entitled to from hotel rooms.

If you have any questions, email [email protected]
