Thinking about ways to sort that out. Most cost effective would be couples in doubles - when I went this year it was as a Paizo tier 1 GM, where they set 4 of us up in a double with 2 queen beds. The hotel doesn't have extra cots, one guy brought an inflateabed. I shared a bed with a guy who snored. NOT optimal, but on the other hand everyone was out of the room so much I hardly noticed them otherwise, and it's the most cost effective approach. On the other hand, I'm guessing that many will want to go as couples, eg saif & donna, jesknot & evilyn, so what might work is to set the Per person at king room, and if you want it for yourself, pay it, if you're sharing, work it out between you & roomie who pledged and who pays back the other. However, I'm thinking it would be also good to have some double queen options in there for people who want to save the $$ and don't mind more to a room.
I'll work with the hotel(s) to check out all the permutations when we get to the "get serious" phase of the project in a couple months. Right now my eye is on the Courtyard Downtown
(where Paizo put us up this year), as that seems the best combo of price and proximity, but if a majority would also like a different level of place that'd be good to know.
So yea, posts thought about all that here!
