No luck with the $20 sandwich. Was told that 3000 people checked in the past two days for a convention (we arrived on a Tuesday). We ended up upgrading to a Julius Executive Suite room (room 1486) for $50/night. It was an amazing room (1100 sq. ft, separate bed room and living room, and more) and would do it over in a heartbeat. $9 for an Octavius room sounds like a pretty good deal.
