    #3 and #4 on page one (Hilton & Hampton) look pretty nice for under $100 to start.

    I agree with Larry. Also, the Courtyard by Marriott is another possibility.

    Ok, so how do I start on the bargaining? Do I need to call the hotel and speak with the front desk or what?

    Never done this before.

    Yeah, just call the hotel and ask for rates. Then ask if they can give you any discounts. Tell them you are checking rates at different hotels for a meet and you are looking for the best rate. Empty rooms net them NOTHING. You'd be amazed at the rates my wife gets, but you have to ask. They won't offer. If they ask how many, tell them maybe 10, but you are not sure (might be more). Remember, there are a lot of Minnesota guys here who may decide to show once we get the info out on another forums (I suspect a lot don't read this one).

    I am still trying to figure out what other days I am going to be up there. That will factor into my hotel decision. My sales rep is dragging his feet on setting up appointments, so i might just be up for the two nights after all.

    Regardless figure me for a room if you do make a deal with them.

    Well this is odd. On hotels.com, the places you suggested are showing $79 or so a night, but when I called down to the Hampton Inn & Suites in Bloomington, they wanted $103.20 per night, and that's with the group "discount".

    I think we figured 5 or 6 FOR SURE, but I'd bet there will be more once we get this nailed down and I post it in the Deville and Seville sections.

    I almost called the Hilton this morning since nothing was happening, but I'll wait and see what you come up with.

    I'm in for Friday and Saturday. If Priceline comes up buptkis (I didn't have any luck for the first night of next week's road trip), I say let's go with the Hilton.
