So, a consensus if we could please... there are some really great hotels downtown Raleigh that isn't too terribly pricey and that would keep everyone amidst the downtown action. The Sheraton for instance runs from $200-$320/night. The Marriot, closer to the upper end. Of course, anyone can stay where they want but as far as the "official" hotel" to keep everyone together, I wanted to ask if you want to keep all the nightlife of Raleigh within walking distance.
There are a few others that are close of course but not necessarily downtown.


Secondly, we are exactly 1 month away from the payment deadline. Before you pay - make sure you can truly do this. Venues have to be booked and this $$ goes when it comes in. I've had to refund one already and it makes it diffifult on the planning end. Thanks.
So let me know about the motels and we'll go from there and I will see if I can get a group rate as well.

I'm cool with a downtown hotel but only speaking for myself a a social. using Expedia or any of the priceline type booking agents has produced some good flight/hotel packages. Once you name the 'official' hotel, I'll start putting together some social walkabouts and shoots with models. Eric, I'll be sure to coordinate that with you since we'll need to use official minilypse releases etc.


Thanks for the hard work.

Of all dates! My sister has picked that week to get married. Happy for her and the waitlister who gets my spot. Sad for me. Was so looking forward to attending and seeing many/meeting others in such a cool setting. Enjoy everyone!

Sorry to hear this cglade. You'll be missed for sure (but at least I won't spill wine on you again ).


So PenelopeB, you're in and those on the waiting list are moving up. Hotel info coming later today.

Ladies and gentlemen, I have been trying so hard to make this work. I think I have found a way to keep both sides of my family happy (it's Canadian Thanksgiving that weekend) and STILL get to ditch my baby, head to Raleigh, and BE THERE. I had all but given up but my family is helping me make this work. 


I. Am. STOKED.

Also, I'm easy when it comes to hotels as long as it's not ridiculously expensive ($300 = too much!) and will hope to share a room with a few people. Although last time Ed and I were together we were dashing from room to room with bottles of wine and false mustaches, and I may have slept on the floor, so maybe I don't even need a room.

Eric, do you have an idea of when things might be happening? I'm looking at flights and don't know whether I should try to be there Thursday or what time on Friday? And does it make sense to head home Monday or Tuesday? Anyone else have flights or firm arrival/departure plans yet?


Or I'm still tossing around the idea of getting Ed to drive me. Though one of us might kill the other by the time we hit North Carolina.

Cat, if you come in on Thursday I promise something will be happening (understand that something happens here most nights of the week when Vega decides to go out in Raleigh ). Officially and solely for the event....
Friday night is orientation.
Sat, Sun, and Mond is shooting in ridiculous locations.
Monday night is the wrap party (you know, veggie pizzas and giner ale per Mie's request) so I would say definetely make sure you ar ehere Fri - Tuesday am. Make it Cat. Life is too short to miss something like this.

Crap, I forgot about that!


Also, edit: I will also want to share a room with someone so we can do that if you want.  I don't snore.

Here is probably the best motel list. I still wanted to get a little more feedback on what budget was desired but as mentioned before, there are only a few downtown and they are a bit pricey. However, there are plenty of motels that are quite close, as you will see below. I am really hesitant to make a hotel "the hotel" since I have little feedback. Obviously the majority will determine this so if I could, please weigh in on what you would like to do and then I will see about getting a group rate.

Based this work on the proximity to C.Grace/Seven and availability/cost during the event. All hotel names and prices (per night) are as represented on Expedia.


Hotels Downtown Raleigh:
- Sheraton Raleigh Hotel, $214
- Raleigh Marriott City Center, $240

Close to downtown:
- Red Roof Inn Raleigh NCSU - Convention Center, $63

Raleigh Midtown (easy driving distance):
- Courtyard by Marriott Raleigh Midtown, $129
- Hampton Inn Raleigh Midtown, $93
- La Quinta Inn & Suites Raleigh Crabtree, $84

I am still not quite on the list (#3 on wait list) right now, so I don't have an official opinion until I know I am actually going.  I feel kinda bad saying I have my finger crossed, since that would mean 3 other people will not be able to go -but I really do have my fingers crossed

Sorry Eric I forgot, I meant to ask does close to downtown mean walking distance?

How many people need to book at a hotel to get some kind of group rate?  Just curious.  With 25 participants I imagine a lot of people will be booking a hotel.
