I do too! Are you staying in the Con hotel or another? I picked another this year (Holiday Inn across the street) due to the whole elevator thing.

This'll be my first visit to AWA... I've heard it's the biggest anime-themed convention in the Southeast. Though I haven't heard much opinions/remarks on last year's AWA7 event, I'd love to hear more.

I am going. Last year I stayed in a hotel across the street and got harassed by a drunk. This year will be staying in the con hotel. Hopefully enough people will stay at other hotels so elevator not as bad - quite a few must be since was still able to get a room.

Actually I am looking for two more people to stay in the Holiday Inn across the street from the Con hotel. You see two of my friends had to bail and so now I am stuck! Do any of you know anyone who might be interested Fri/Sat night?

Of the hotels suggested by the www.AWA-con.com site, could any previous AWA participants recommend a decent hotel in the area to visit for that weekend?

The Holiday Inn is really nice. Last year my friends and I stayed there, but I have stayed there for confrences a few other times.

The AmeriSuites was where I stayed last year. The Suites itself are very nice, and cheaper then main hotel w more amenities. If were not a costumer would highly recommend it. If they have another party in bar though, could be drunks, which is where I had prob last year.

I will be going. I stayed last year at the Hampton Inn and will do so again this year. Great hotel, free breakfast, internet access.

I will probably only be there on Saturday and maybe Sunday. AWA is just not important enough to take Friday off ^^;

I might possibly go, but only for a day. I wasn't really impressed last year and there doesn't seem to be that much to offer this year. True, I'm still recovering from DragonCon, but I'll try to stay awake long enough to make it to AWA :)
