To be honest I'm not very excited about the Manhattan Beach option. Let's face it, unless you're actually on the sand, Manhattan Beach really means El Segundo. There's not much around there in terms of restaurants and pubs. I think Pasadena is a much better option. Convenience to the airport is a minor advantage compared to convenience to good food and alcohol.
Also, the guy at the Marriot said the hotel rate would increase by $5/night if we wanted to reserve 200 instead of 100 rooms.
I don’t know what other cities/states are vying for Code4Lib’s 2015 Conference, but Ben and I are hopeful that theManhattan Beach Marriott will prove to be the best option on the table! Let us know what the next steps are and if there is anything else you need from us prior to submitting and voting on proposals for Code4Lib’s 2015 Conference! Thanks again for your consideration Joshua, as we want your business!
P.S. As you will see in our banquet/catering menus, our Boxed Lunches are $36++ per person. Our buffet lunches range anywhere from $44++ – $58++ per person (depending on what you choose). If those buffet lunch prices are within your group’s budget, click on our menus to see what those options consist of.Kurt Endo

I agree that you should go ahead and request a hold from the Pasadena Hilton. Go for the cheaper February rates. I think Feb is generally cheaper than March for airfare. And the conference is traditionally held in Feb anyway.
What do you think of making it Tues-Fri instead, because of the 3 day weekend?
