I still haven't secured a hotel for the 17th to the 21st (the post-conference part of my upcoming trip). I'll be there by myself and I'm trying to decide where to stay. Staying on property would run me at least $100/night (given that I don't want to lug all my camping gear and camp there). I could probably stay at something marginally acceptable for half that off property. So for someone traveling with no family, unlikely to do anything at all in his hotel other than sleep and shower, and intending the trip to be essentially a photography outing, where would you suggest I stay and why? On property would give me the early entry hour, but i'm not sure that's worth the extra $50/day. Do you think it is?
