Thats a load. I always book the non-Hamvention rate. It allows me
flexibility to cancel and not be subject to the bumping rules associated
with the Group Rate.
It has always been from about $110 to $145 for a room (best available rate
or AAA rate). Breakfast packages, champaigne packages. etc., were upwards
of $170. But never $200.
BTW, for those considering the DT, use your AAA card for a 10% discount off
the best rate (excluding payment in advance rates).
