    I'm at red roof - $50 a night.

    From the aerial photo I can't tell if I'm on the back or front of the CC. Can anyone tell me which side is the main entrance?

    I just booked a room at the Sleep Inn. It's about a 10 minute walk from the convention center.

    Now I need to start looking for roommates. :p

    Changed my hotel reservation from the Days Inn to the Ramada Inn.

    Got alot of negative feedback on the Days Inn from dirty upkeep to poor security and theft.

    Got a great deal on Bookings.com

    This is the same with us! It will be too hot to walk. We liked the shuttle service last year right outside our hotel.
    We of course will be making a vacation out of this too. Although, not looking forward to visiting Disney ect. in August.
    Def hitting the ocean too!
    Looking at the Hilton

    And they have pretty cheap unlimited daily and multi-day passes.

    I have reservations at three different hotels, currently.

    However...

    We are probably going to stay at the Quality Inn Rosen, which is about 1 mile up the street. They have some great perks. The have a trolly system that goes up and down the street with some great prices to ride. I will post the link later on...Cannot atm.

    Also, they offer kids eat free with adult meal purchase. This is great for a family such as mine.

    I have alot of info. about the area already and will post information later today!

    Huggles!

    I pulled the trigger on a 3 bedroom 2 bath townhouse at the Vista Cay resort, about 1/2 mile from the convention center. Myself and a couple of buddies are going to split the cost which will make it well worth it. I like the fact that it will have a full kitchen. Should help save on some of the meal costs.

    I made a reservation at SpringHill Suites as well. If any really good deals open up when they announce the convention block, maybe I will change it, but it looks like a nice place for the money and has really good reviews online. Free breakfast and free internet, too!

    Has anyone heard any hints about when the blocks are supposed to be available? I know it's "soon", but that's fairly vague :p

    In September I was in Orlando for a conference and I stayed at the brand new Hilton that is RIGHT next to the convention center. Really nice place, great pool and lazy river, and its attached to end of the convention center. However, that convention center is HUGE and I don't know what part of it will be occupied by C5, or if that part will be at the same end of the Hilton.

    I'm officially going! :D
    I just booked at [link=http://www.extendedstayhotels.com/]Extend a Stay Deluxe[/link]. I think it is a little bit of a walk from the convention center but I will have my car if need be. All the other hotels that are really close seem to not have any availability which I figure is the blocks of reservations they are making. I might switch when those become avaliable but the price is right at the extend a stay.

    It has a full kitchen so we don't have to eat out as much and it only costs $68 a night (that is with taxes, etc.).
