    Horton Grand

    I stayed at the Horton Grand in Febraury of this year, and like noid said, it's noisy and the only redeeming quality is that it is close to the conference center, and possibly the price. You can hear the music from an adjacent club, or the construction/garbage collectors outside at 5:00 AM. The price may be OK, but be wary of the little "extras" they try to tack on, or you may spend as much as if you'd stayed in a higher class of hotel and the walls are thin, so you may just hear what your neighbor is doing (or not able to do).

    Because of my last experience at the Horton Grand, I'm staying off the beaten path at another hotel a few blocks away to get away from the business of that area, and if you can afford to put out the extra $30-$50 a night to stay elsewhere, I strongly suggest that you do.

    Another option is staying closer to the airport. There is a trolley line that runs down the water front and stops right in front of the convention center. If you look in Little Italy or around that area, you can find rooms at normal prices, then just take the trolley down to the convention center.

    Hmmm... Last time I checked (Crossed it four times in the last week) it's only $2 US or $2.50 CAN.

    That’s $4 - $5 round trip. Sounds like a little exaggeration to me.

    One of these years, I'll win the lottery and hit all the cons on the schedual in the year. Crossing that damn border gets really expensive, not to mention the hotel.

    Someone buy me a shirt or something. I will make it to Toorcon sooner or later.

    from the looks of things, looks like toorcon is gonna shape up to be a good time,
    and san diego looks like it's got some cool things going for it.

First, its a Victorian style hotel, so lots of frilly, ruffly things. Sleeping in their rooms is just plain awkward, as its quite the opposite from the spartan conditions of my bedroom at home. Second, its directly across the street from a hip-hop club.
    This is the place my friends and I crashed last year... We won't be going back this year. I don't remember there being a hip-hop club last year... buut the Victorian style beds/room/bathroom/hotel was quite contrast to what I see as good style. I also think overall it was pretty boring and weird hotel. Thanks for the info though.
