169 is too steep for my blood. I want to keep it under 150 guys. The sea view hotel is 4 star rated and is on the beach.

Ok, command decision here. The meets are about people and places surrounding them. Not hotels. Yes Beach house has had negative and positive reviews, but all of them have said positive things about the beach location so Deedee and I will be booking there. Please feel free to join us there folks.

Just called hotel, parking is 22 dollars a day.

True.

But on the other hand, people are insisting that they want to stay on the beach. Once you get away from that, the number of hotels at far cheaper prices opens up tremendously.

I got Vetoed

Ok guys, I got overruled, or swayed in my opinion I guess

The new official hotel is... /drumroll....

Fairfield Inn

It's 159 a night and with taxes it goes to 179 a night, but it has free bfreakfast, free internet (which you're a dork if you sign onto IMHO...), and parking is only 15 a night I think.

Waldingrl, smeek, OC and I agree. So tough noogies!

And it will be easier to get from that place to a party at my house* than it would have been from the other hotel.

Yeah I looked into joining AAA and then booking the room, but AAA membership isn't instantaneous (I assume to avoid just such an instance).

Well you only need to show proof when you check in, and most of the time they don't even ask.

Ok, so you people actually booking? Or still just talking about booking?

I'll update the first post so people don't have to wade through the thread to figure it out.

For reference, my address is 7917 SW 104th Street, Miami, 33135
