    Isn't Tatooine on the outer rim? If it is could I suggest Residence Inn being tatooine?

    Holy cow this is an awesome thread! I just laughed my HRD Hinee off! I am with Moff & Jia & a few others, I personally think that Confort Inn & Suites should be the death star. Just not Tatooine... lol They don't serve driods! (not that they would know I'm one or anything - heehee)

    Anyhoo, thats my 2 credits!

    We're staying at the Super 8 by the airport, which is about six miles or something away, and I don't think many people have mentioned it. Or, they want it to be called Bespin, which doesn't make a lot of sense since the building won't be very tall, so how is it in the clouds?
    So here's what we (There are two of us in the Wampas) think it should be called: Hoth. Because that's where the Wampas are. AND, if you've ever stayed at a Super 8, you know that the air conditioner is louder than a sustained Wookiee bark, and when you wake up, you have ice on your nose. Plus it's far away from all the action. Or, if Hoth is taken, Nar Shaddaa since it's by the airport, and will likely have all sorts of freaks, smugglers and weirdos around it. Of course, Super 8's aren't really vertical cities either, but work with me here.

    Super 8 by the airport = Hoth (or Nar Shaddaa)

    Super 8 = Bespin!

    And what about those of us that are staying in the Travelodges, etc.,? Before those of you staying in the closer, more expensive hotels snap up all the cool outer rim names, best consider the poor slobs who either were too poor or too slow to get a nicer place.

    I vote that Cloud City be our suite in the Super 8. It only makes sense if the Super 8's Bespin.

    I was the first to chime in for the Adam's Mark and I dubbed it Alderaan. No real reason except that they both start with A and it would be easier to remember that way. I really think that's how we should designate the hotel planet names, by whichever sounds the most like it. Thus Courtyard would be Coruscant, Embassy Suites = Endor, Westin = Bespin....etc.

    i think this would be a creative way to track all the hotels but somebody needs to make a list of all the nominees per hotel adn then we could vote and during the voting no one can make any more suggestions.

    If you don't mind k3po, I'll make the list.

    Since you started the thread, either you or somebody you designate should decide on a deadline for all of the submission of names and we can vote then.

    Since I am a STAR WARS purist, I couldnt stay in any Hotel named after an Expanded Universe planet. Super 8 for Bespin. It doesnt have clouds, but it doenst have Lobot either and I dont think the people staying in whatever hotel gets Alderaan want to be blown up either.

    I dont like novels which are derivative of SW, I would only make an exception for novels that SW got ITS ideas from. If I can remember the name of the Boskone Planet from LENSMEN (if you havent read it, then you havnt read SW) then I would pick that. But Bespin first.

    Since Alderaan's scattered all over the place, I suggest that everyone staying at friends' houses or camping out is on Alderaan.

    Here is a colabreration from LIJA. This is a pretty good layout. Thanks for the hard work Lija.

    Hey there,

    Here's the list that I said I would do. If you like it, then send it out to your ongoing discussion thread.

    Here's the latest and greatest in suggestions of which hotel should be which planets.


    Hotel = Planets

    Indiana Convention Center = Coruscant, Biss
    Adams Mark = Alderaan, Endor, Yavin, Naboo
    Budget Inn = Hoth
    Canterbury Hotel = Tynna
    Comfort Inn & Suites = Death Star, Bastion, Kuat, Carida, Bespin, Hoth
    Crowne Plaza = Caamas
    Courtyard by Marriott = Corellia, Endor, Coruscant
    Courtyard/Residence Inn by Marriott = Kamino, Geonosis, Tatooine, Dantooine, Cloud City
    Marriott Hotel = Cloud City, Dagobah, Duro
    Days Inn = Tatooine, Mon Calamari, Dagobah
    Econolodge = Kashyyyk
    Embassy Suites = Yavin, Tatooine, Balmorra, Endor
    Hampton Inn = Kashyyyk
    Hyatt Regency = Bespin, Coruscant, Kuat
    Omni Severin = Endor, Tatooine
    Radisson Hotel = Yavin
    Renaissance = Corellia
    Super 8 Motel = Bespin, Ord Mantell, Hoth, Nar Shaddaa
    Westin = Coruscant, Naboo, Corellia, Bespin

    The following is a suggestion from Sebulba-X.

    'Of course, anyone staying in a hotel on or outside of I-465 would be considered the collective Outer Rim. Whoever lays claim to the hotel furthest away from downtown gets Tatooine...in honor of Luke's whining. Technically, whichever hotel has the most people staying in it should be Coruscant, though that might be hard to prove. Everything else is up for grabs, besides the one's already claimed, if that's what you want.

    All hotels within the same chain should get the same planet name...we'll just tack on "the <hotel planet name> system" when referring to them.'


    Voting should start soon. Suggestions will be taken until that time, and then it will be closed.

    I like Corellia or Coruscant for the Courtyard by Marriott. That's where I'll be staying. Anything except Endor.

    Ok some problems with the list so far....There are multiple hotels with only one name listed as suggested and match others...so are we having 2 hotels with the same planet name?? and did you read the entire thread and take all suggestions?

    It's not very democratic, but at some point somebody is going to just have to take the list and all suggestions and just ASSIGN them unilaterally. Some people won't get what they want, but I think that's inevitable anyway.

    Just one person, like k3po or Sebulba-X needs to come up with their own system (proximity, name similarities, etc.) and run with it, taking into account the various suggestions as best as possible. Basically, we need to grant emergency powers to a Supreme Chancellor...

    "As my first act, I will create a grand list of hotels to counter the increasing confusion of the Celebration."

    hmm... you gots a point, but it is fun to argue about which hotel deserves what name :) ;)

    here here! there is nothing wrong with a little "debate" it keeps the board interesting. ;)

    I do however agree that a list and decision should be made soon.

    It would be great if we could get a sign at the hotels in the lobby of the decided name.
    So when you walk in the lobby the sign says "welcome to Endor" etc......or "Thank you for staying on Endor" ......you know what I mean.
    I am sure the Hotels would have a stink about that one though, but it would definitely get the word out!

    I don't think anyone has requested it yet, so I'd like to take a shot at having the Wingate Inn on Rockville Rd. called Kessel. It's about 5-6 miles away from the convention center and I just want to see the look on my cab driver's face when I tell him we need to make the Kessel run in less than twelve parsecs.
