Hi all,

Are there any good alternatives to the FOSS4G conference hotel? I was
asked this in an email this morning. The conference website has no
pointers, and I wonder if subscribers to this list might be able to
provide a list of more affordable or more interesting ones.

Thanks,

Sean

Sean,

When we put together the original proposal we tracked down a number of accommodation options. I think, in the process of standing up the new website, finalizing the program, and the general build up, that information got lost. I don't even see it in the OSGeo Wiki any more other than the paragraph that made it into the final proposal: http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/FOSS4G_2011_Denver_Venue#Accommodations_for_Every_Budget

The State of the Map LOC has a wiki page setup specifically for this as well but it's empty. That looks like a good place to start filling things in. I'll try to spend a little time on it this morning.

Sean:

Classic distance decay function at work here.

I'm not seeing anything in the downtown core that represents a great value over the conference hotel.


The Hampton Inn on Speer Blvd would be a very do-able location (great view of the city) and you're saving $60/night

The Ramada at Colfax & Downing might be a good choice for those wanting to be in the urban mix.

Denver's hostels are do-able location-wise if you're going serious budget


A nice budget option for the non-hostel type would be something on AirBnB--I've used it in Brooklyn and Houston and both times worked out great.


Other than that, I'd say if something looks like a "deal" within 2 miles of downtown, it could be seriously sketchy...

Sean,

I just populated the OSM wiki State of the Map accommodation page:


Mid-range, Budget and Hostel options given with a few details related to each.
