Just use Google to find a hotel with a room in the surrounding areas. There are a ton of them about 10-20 minutes out from the center of downtown.

Problem...solved.

Thanks for the thought but that's not a solution for me. I fly in and renting a car and paying dowtown parking, plus lost time driving, is not a viable option. I also dont walk long distances very well so a con center room is a MUST.

If we can pull off the miracle of a con center hotel room, I'm game.

I have a room near the airport. It is $99 per night and I can transfer the registration to you via the Housing people. PM me if you are still needing a room. Thanks!

If only the GoExpress people would post their routes. Based on the taxi fares from the Airport hotels it would run about $28 one way.

*sigh*

Oh well still looking to share a room as well.

As far as airport transportation, when I went several years ago I used the IndyGo public bus to get to downtown from the airport. It cost just a few dollars though I can't remember exactly how much. You might look to see if there is still service to and from the airport, if you are staying near the convention.

I've been going to gen con since the 80's, Wisconsin and Indy,I know the layout cold. You can get a $15 shuttle from the airport to the con center - there are a bunch of them in 1 building and they are all price regulated. One of the reasons I want a con center room because is because the round trip will cut an hour and a half off of what little sleep I do get. Another reason is I don't feel like travelling at 2am after having a couple of Hurricanes at the Hard Rock thats a 30 second stagger from the con center...

Is there no one out there with a room at the Westin, Crowne, Mariott, etc, who wants to pocket a couple of Benjamins from someone who wont be in the room most of the time anyways???
