I skipped a few pages on this post, but picked up a convention in Baltimore sometime between August and September. Sorry for being too lazy, busy to read the whole thing, but this sounds interesting and I have to go to Baltimore every six months anyway, so can I get the shortcut on when and where?
By the way I always stay at the Days Inn (which I noticed someone else mentioned on page 1) it is a good facility, and I have never had any problems there, the restraunt is even pretty good, and the prices are reasonable.
August 26-28 is the date and the Renesaince on Pratt street is the hotel of choice due to it's central location to most places of interest at the Inner Harbor.
I had originally contacted the hotel group reservations thinking we could do well with group rates, but it seems that we can do better individually. I got the group rates down to $179 a night but the standard $199 a night with AAA, AARP or other discounts take the cost to about $159 a night.
