    This is actually the female half of the wampas (Marcy) typing for a change. I just wanted to do a quick online check to see where folks will be staying. I know there were hotels nearby but we decided to live 'cheap' and stay out toward the airport at the Super 8 which we have had reserved since...september and only here could someone appreciate that sort of obsessiveness. So, pipe in, let us know who's going and where they'll be. It's just nice to know if there will be friendly faces nearby. Thanks a bunch,

    Jedisis and I are at the EconoLodge on South Harding St. We are about five miles away. We decided to go cheap and save money for whatever we might find there.

    Like Mauler, I am at the Marriott. While not happy about the room prices, my friend and I wanted to stay at a place where we could park the car and not worry about it. Plus, there are supposedly a ton of bars/clubs right by where we are that we didn't want to worry about driving/taxi to go to alcoholic establishments.

    Looks like the majority of us are staying at the Courtyard by the Marriot. I agree that the price was high but my husband and I wanted to leave the car parked and walk to the Convention Center. We didn't want to have to figure out a bus schedule either. Price is high but we're making this our only vacation this year. Perhaps we should think about putting something up on a bulletin board at the Courtyard and try to get together? Or, before that weekend, exchange names and look each other up for dinner on Thursday night (May 2)???

    I got a room at a Motel 6 about 15 minutes away.

    I'll be at the Embassy Suites, free happy hour. :)

    I look forward to meeting you all at the FanForce party, or at the FF table.

    I'd still rather be 15 minutes away if it saved me $120 per night.

    I'm happy with being able to park my car and not worry about it after that, especially since there are a ton of drinking establishments in the vicinity of the convention center.
