Furries at a furry convention is fine.

Furries making "lewd" comments to 7 year old kids is not fine.

Keep defending them, scum.

I just want to know one thing. If this person knew that they were taking a group of young kids on the road, why didn't they check ahead of time to see if any type of convention or large group they might objectionable was staying at the hotel?

Ennuipoet: FTA:  A Furry Rave included more lude and lascivious behavior,

I wondered if this was a joke, and then I saw the spelling and knew it was real.


I was impressed she could spell lascivious correctly, but not lewd.

Captain Couscous: What I get form the review is that in her mind, "Latin America, Europe and Asia" are shiatholes.


She left out Africa because that wouldn't be politically correct, and Australia is right next to Hungary in Europe. That covers everything but those agressive northern states, Canada being the worst of them. Don't mess with Texas.

The hotel really should warn guests of any conventions going on that could make for unhappy guests, if only to avoid all of the future problems. I worked in reservations at a big hotel chain and I remember having to advise people of gay rodeo conventions and whatnots.

But if I was this reviewer I would have gone to management, demanded a refund and switched hotels.

Wow.   "My little snowflake's cheerleading outing was ruined, ruined I say, because there were a bunch of scary looking people booked in the same hotel as we were.  Wahhhh!   I don't like it!!!   I don't care if they had every right to be there too, it's a bad hotel because they didn't kick the scary looking people on the street!    WAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!"

I find myself curiously unsympathetic to the cheerleading parent's blight.

Mister Peejay: ...And now, someone is going to go see who got married that weekend in that city, cross reference it to known hotel executives, then go to their house and poop on the lawn or something.  A really rancid, watery, "my god what did I eat that my body created such a horror" poop the likes of which the world has not seen before or since.


Here's some more details: http://en.battlestarwiki.org/wiki/The_15_Yahren_Reunion

October 15-17 1993, Universal City Hilton, Los Angeles CA.

Apparently Hilton published an apology in the July 15, 1995 issue of Starlog magazine (i.e. almost 2 years later).

Probably should have researched it more before posting, but that's some dates and places to the story of the BSG convention sabotaged by hotel management.

While that commentary was kind of humorous, I like this line from the review below it...

"If you do go to this hotel do not buy anything from the gift shop if chubby Indian girl is working the register. I caught her digging in her nose on several occassions. Disgusting!"

I for one, will not buy from chubby Indian girl.

Let's see, I've been out of the convention scene for a long time but it's ALWAYS a hoot when there's other events booked at the same facility.

I don't have much sympathy for this cheer parent. Adults doing adult things in adult spaces. If the Klan wants to have their yearly meeting in a hotel in full-on white-sheeted regalia and they've paid for the space, then I can either choose to stick around and expose my kid to whatever, or I can leave. It beomes an issue of "how much of a threat is this to my child?" sort of issue.

I would say that if it was that bad, the parent should have left and found another place to stay, and if it was a so bad and there was no other place to stay, have the guts to pull the plug on the whole mission.

I highly doubt that there was anything that bad going on in public spaces, though, having been to a few of these cons. Enough to squick the easily squicked perhaps, but nothing serious. There has always been a code of conduct at most every con I've ever been to, with the Dorsai or somebody like that doing security. (PDAs always allowed gay or straight, but if it went beyond handholding and kissing it had to go to your rooms).

Hell, I'd feel uncomforable at a leather-daddy convention, and I would either find a new place if I had kids with me or try to make sure they didn't see anything they shouldn't. I wouldn't leave a bad review on the hotel for hosting it though.

wife has worked for a multiple chain name hotel franchisor for nearly 25 years. few years back one of their upscale name brand locations hosted simultaneous conventions for a important business holdings group and a huge amount of furries. there was so much backlash the hotel was locked out of the 1-800 reservation system, everything with the hotel brand name was removed from the premises including the sign cans out front and the owner was slapped with a lawsuit. contractual agreements can run deep and wide.
 
2013-02-24 10:46:08 AM  
I'm not into the whole furry thing myself but couldn't this guy have simply moved his team to another hotel without making such a big fuss? Let the furry people have their fun I say.

You have to take these Tripadvisor reviews with a grain of salt. Especially when you have "SavvvvyTravelers" who can't even figure out what channel the football game is on (see below review).

/My guess was that he didn't even bother to look for the channel list usually provided in every room

Mrtraveler01: One tip for this mother:

Don't go to Pittsburgh in June (or whenever they hold that convention)


It's always right around 4th of July. I've gone the past three years. Best money to entertainment ratio in Pittsburgh

The hotel should really make all guests behave and not look the other way when things like this occur. I stayed at a hotel in Chicago one night when at 2:00am a group came into the room next door, started smoking and carrying on like you wouldn't believe. This was recent when you could not smoke in rooms any more and they hotel had a stated policy to charge guests cleanup fees if you smoked. Instead of addressing the problem people they moved us to the presidential suite and gave us the room for free.

I think it's clear to everyone (except you) that cheerleader "competitions" are unacceptable, as are cheerleader "moms" and "dads".

So when you compare anything to the absolute scum of the Earth, even Furries don't look quite so bad.

I think the most hated creature on the internet would have to be a juggalo furry/brony that happened to be a lawyer/cop/politician in their daily life.

I can summarize the entire problem in one sentence.  A direct quote from the review.

"How did I find out all of these details about this "rave" and what these furry conventions are about? GOOGLE!!!!! "

The guy saw some furries walking the hall and the little girls probably thought it was awesome because people were dressed up as animals.   Cheer dad probably got all excited and asked if it was a team mascot convention.  When told it was a furry convention he went back to his room, googled furry, and encountered rule #34.

He should try looking up cheerleader.

hockeychick: Methinks this woman is full of shiat.  My guess is that she and her snowflakes got there, saw a few people who were dressed in fursuits and freaked out.  How many people do you know who randomly swear at children?  Unless you grew up in my house not many.  And the claim that she never saw the general manager, I guarantee that if the furries were making that much of a ruckus that manager would be there in a heartbeat with cops in tow to calm the fur love-in down.

And if she thinks that's bad try going to New Orleans on Labor Day weekend.  On your honeymoon.


I went on labor day weekend with my girlfriend and had a blast, how in particular would it ruin a honeymoon? When I went I didn't realize it was gay pride weekend, but it actually made for one of the more memorable trips. The funny part was that there was also a "red hat" convention at the hotel we were at, so little old ladies and extremely drunk gay dudes.

Well, there were additional details, but I would not put this type of parent past the point of fabricating incidents to assuage their dislike of people that scare them for making them think about things outside their little bubble.

A few years back the company I worked for had our yearly worldwide sales kick off in San Jose at the Doubletree right by SJC airport.  The 2nd to last day of our event started Furcon.

It was pretty much the funniest things I have seen.... the guys from Japan really were impressed as well.

I got to meet that cat guy before he an-hero'ed himself, which was neat.

What kind of idiotic hotel books a convention of sexual deviants? If the the Giant Dildos and Donkey Lovers of America called for convention acommadations wouldn't that give them pause? How about NAMBLA? Everybody that reads this and goes, "Furry fun spot, how about no?" is well served by the review and the apparent loss of business that got them to contact the reviewer is very much deserved by the hotel.

Silverstaff: I know it can be annoying to be staying at a hotel at the same time as a convention.

When I was a kid, we took a family vacation to Gatlinburg.  Apparently the hotel was having some kind of motorcycle convention that weekend.  We heard the sounds of revving motorcycles and loud partying all weekend.

What is worse is when the hotel decides to sabotage the convention because they don't like it.

Apparently, in the mid '90's, FOX decided it wanted a sci-fi space action/adventure TV series.  Dirk Benedict had been shopping around to build support for a Battlestar Galactica revival.  (Note, this is almost a decade before the new BSG reboot), and would be a continuation of the late 70's series (and ignoring the Galactica 1980 spinoff).

FOX was interested in the idea, partly in the idea it had a ready-built fanbase they could use.  Name recognition and existing fanbase they thought would be good for ratings.  What it would take to seal the deal would be actually showing the network execs just how much fandom existed and how much support was out there.  Again, the early days of the web, so it was hard to just point to a big online community.

So, there was going to be a big convention for Battlestar Galactica.  A 15th anniversary deal as I recall, circa 1994.  The execs just had to see it was big and they'd sign for a new series.

They had booked a hotel for the convention, and had lots of attendees booked for the convention and most of the surviving cast were going to be there as guests.  The problem was that some exec at the hotel chain was getting married that weekend, and he was doing it at one of his hotels.  That one.  He didn't want a bunch of fanboys running around mucking up his wedding.

So, the desk staff started "losing" reservations.  Basically whenever fans showed up to check in and it was clear they were there for the convention, their reservation was "lost" and they wouldn't have any rooms available.  Lots of fans were turned away, and a good number of th ...


unacceptable.  what chain was this?
