Hotel Poll - W or the Sheraton ?


Those of you attending or planning to attend - vote which hotel you will be checking into?

With the conference not being at a hotel I dont know how lively the hotels will feel, but would still like to stay where most people are staying!

Personally I want to stay at the W but if most people will be in the Sheraton then thats where the antics will be!

I will probably go with W unless there is a huge price gap when I book for the hotel since I haven't decided 100% to go or not this year. I'm a last minute type of guy

Last year I booked for hotel and plane ticket to Vegas 3-4 days before the first conference day heh.

Let me recommend you not do that this year... for one thing, you probably won't be able to find an available hotel room in Chicago if you wait that long. It's very busy in Chicago in the summer and hotel rooms are often scarce.

Our group rates at the W and Sheraton end on June 29th.

The Sheraton is $50/night cheaper with the group rates. We'll probably go with whatever hotel is better (or with whatever hotel accomodates most attendees) - most likely the W I guess.

Hm I see. I suppose that could be a reason to stay at the Sheraton then.

I think most people haven't decided yet, but it would indeed be nice to post it here once you've made the decision. Meeting up with other people (particularly people from WHT) was definitely the best part of attending in 2005.

Rooms in the W ran out for shoulder days, they are adding more to the group rate allocation right now.

Apparently the W group rooms we're half sold when I spoke to George earlier so need to get in quick!

We've got our rooms at the W booked for the entire week sat->sat.

See you all there, apparently the W has an amazing bar!

It depends on how much of the diary I can free up either side of HC. Looking at staying a day eitherside and being @ the W, although based on being in NewJersey just before, and needing to be in Austin on the Friday, HC's beginning to look unlikely

However back to the point - W would be my hotel of choice

Speaking about the hotel itself (not the crowd), I would stay at the W. They're usually always more than a step above from Sheraton, and I think the rooms/atmosphere are going to be a lot more modern and trendy too - if that's what you're going for.

The Sheraton is in a better location than the W. I'm surprised that the rate is so inexpensive. And like George said, Chicago summers make it difficult to find room availability at a hotel. Book very early, especially if HostingCon is expecting 1,500 this year.
