I reserved a block of rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn downtown. It's a brand new hotel in the building that used to be Miller and Rhodes - it's where Mr. L always went to see THE Santa as a kid.
The "Legendary Santa" who was at Miller and Rhodes for years.
It's also a straight shot down the street from the reception venue, and within walking distance of several great restaurants and bars. So, it should be easy for people to get back, whether they are coming from the reception of or the after party. Perfect.
The rooms are only $99/night. Go here to reserve a room. The discount rate is good as long as you make the reservation by August 5.
