I'm planning on hitting up Air BnB, but it's not clear whether transportation will be straightforward. I'll be renting a car, and I might not be the only one, so we might coordinate carpools to get people to and from the venue.

It would definitely be helpful to coordinate rides, thanks so much. I was planning to rely on Uber to get around so can coordinate with others on rides there as well.

I was reading above that you were looking for a hotel group rate. Anything new about that?

@heuermh was looking into it, but I'm not sure if we're going to do better than the hotels.com pricing? Michael -- what do you think? We should probably put a recommendation up on the wiki.

Sorry, I've been dragging my feet. I will call a few places today (including those mentioned above) to see if a group reservation might help with rates. I may also be renting a car.

You are the best. I hate talking to people on the phone.

King rooms at Hampton Inn are $93/night when part of a group reservation. King with sofabed and two queens are also available. There's lots of fine print I still need to go through though, and there would be a strong cutoff date ("All rooms must be reserved by 14 Jun 2016").
I hate talking to people on the phone too. :)
