If you're still having trouble booking a hotel don't worry - there are many hotels around the official TFNation hotel and if you read between the lines you might get lucky
TFNation only "own" part of the Hilton Metropole, at their discounted rate. However, the Hilton may still have rooms available if you try booking as a non-Transformers person. You can also try to mix'n'match your nights (some at the TFNation rate and others without)
So for example if you...
Stay at the Hilton Metropole for Friday night at the TFNation rate
Stay at an Airport hotel for Saturday night
Stay with a room-buddy back in the Hilton Metropole for Sunday night at a non-convention rate
... it won't affect you getting into the convention. If TFNation do things like discounts on drinks or access to private areas, that will still work. Makes no difference where you sleep
PROTIP : I originally got a single room for Friday and Saturday without Sunday. I just tried my luck adding Sunday night with the "Modify" link in my Hilton confirmation email and it worked! I now have the full 3 nights booked!!

The TFNation website has a completely different layout to the old AutoAssembly site, so be careful to get all the details correct. You can't book the hotel rooms on a separate page, the link to the hotel (with discount) shows up after you book your TFNation ticket
The good news is I scored Friday and Saturday night
all 3 nights with the "Modify" link in my confirmation email
The Hilton link goes through the American .com site so it has phrases like "Toll Free" and "1-800" phone numbers with the occasional $ on it. But fear not - the prices are in £ and it shows as a secure site with the Hilton Birmingham Metropole UK address
