Use priceline, after several tries, $64 got me a 4**** hotel right across the street from the convention center, set your own price for $64 and a 3 1/2 star hotel and you should get one close to the convention center, make sure you select the downtown area in your choices.

Which hotel was that?

You need to wait till like the first of the year still a little early! Shane and its I will keep you posted! Shane this time!

Thanks Shane, Your rate last year saved us haunters last year thousands!! I think William Shattner should watch out. You might take his job, "Insane Shane, Price Line Negotiator"

Hey Gents,
I am sorry to inform you but I dont think anyone will be able to get any great rates like last year. There is a Basketball tournament happening at the same time close by. So, I would not wait to book your hotel rooms.

Sweet 16 Baby! I'm hoping to check something out there!!! Love March Madness!

Have you booked yours yet kevin?

We booked 2 rooms already at the renaissance hotel

Bill, When you booked your rooms did you use priceline? Name your price? What did you enter for a price if you did?

Priceline buys lots or blocks or rooms in hotels across the country. There will be some rooms hopefully but the question is what will the savings be? Right now the Renaissance Grand is not even on the listings on Priceline so who knows time will tell but I still think its a little to early. Shane and its give it time! Shane this time!

The basketball tournament is at the football stadium connected to the convention center, these games usually draw 35,000-40,000 people, finding rooms in St Louis this weekend in downtown is going to be difficult. I've been to Sweet 16's in Kansas City, Atlanta, and San Antonio and hotel rooms within 10 miles of downtown at a reasonable price is next to impossible. Remember, not only will haunters be on priceline, so will basketball fans. If you wait, you will be sorry. The hotel I got for $64 was the The Mayfair - A Wyndham Historic Hotel on the back side, west side of the convention center.

We have not booked yet. I need to do that soon but I am trying to determine exactly how many rooms we will need.

Thanks for the heads up Kevin. I had no idea there were games in town during TWorld.

You are welcome Damon,

But it is second hand information to me.
thank Jenn from Transworld. She told me, and she was sad to hear it because she knew some people would be upset the hotel rooms could be hard to come by at the last minute. And no one was going to get as good of room costs as last year.

Push the show up or back a week! I wonder how hard that would be? Shane and its thinking out loud! Shane this time.

Well Shane, that might be a good idea. It looks like the Americas Center is open the first weekend in March. Wonder how hard that would be to pull off? Never know.......
