Residence Inn Convention Center for me, too. For other conventions and work, I have stayed at several and found them good overall. I wanted near but not on top of the convention so my family can actually sleep if we want. The breakfast buffet, in-suite kitchen, and complimentary grocery shopping will allow us to spend less time, money, and calories than those at the mercy of the restaurants. On site complimentary parking will help with the transport of costumes.
