Correction to Previous New Announcement: Otakon 2021 Hotel Block to Open June 8th at Noon

We were excited to announce that the Hotel Block for Otakon 2021 would be opening on June 8th at Noon and we got a little ahead of ourselves.  The previous announcement as a whole was mostly wrong. We apologize of any confusion and panic it might have caused. 

To clarify again the Otakon 2021 Hotel Block will open for booking on June 8th at Noon through our hotel partner Experient. To find out more information about the Hotel Block for Otakon 2021 please visit our official hotel page here.
