Akon does have a 1 night deposit required. They will charge your credit card when you make your reservation. It's in the booking rules, which means they can and will charge it. If you don't want to pay one night up front, book one of the other Market Center hotels- there's a bunch in the area. Personally I am staying at the Doubletree since it's walking distance, has free parking, and isn't charging me up front.
I'm a sucker for the con hotel, but I think this one may be an exception.. free parking? That's not too bad and could save upwards of $30 or more dollars.
Edit: I took the Sheraton across the street for $144 a night with free parking and breakfast. now that's not too bad, plus it's holding for free if you go through their website and is cheaper then expedia. Lowest rate my butt.
