I'm going to meet some friends for lunch and dinner but I'm not actually going into the con. I'm bringing my 3ds for streetpasses. 2011 was my last year actually going inside. Otakon has got way to big for my tastes. I prefer smaller cons.

I'm currently thinking about going. I don't know yet. I can pay my fee for registration and the fee to get there in transportation, but I wanted to stay there for more than one day. I don't know the area at all. I was wondering if I could inquire some information regarding the hotels in the area in case I decide I do want to stay there for more than a day. If you know for how much the cost of the hotels would be, do let me know. I'll still do the research myself just in case. I want to be well prepared if I actually do go.

On a side note, if I do go, I'd like to meet some people from here, and maybe enjoy the con together. At this point, I'm going by myself. Coming from New York City. Thank you all, and have a good day!

I travel from Long Island myself so I know it's about a 5 hour car ride. You can take a bus or go by train as well if you do not have access to a vehicle.
Many of the hotels that are within walking distance to the event are probably booked and the ones remaining are expensive! ~$500 a night. I just booked a place from Thursday to Sunday last week. Its called BridgeStreet Spinnaker Bay which is technically serviced apartments but you can book them for a weekend and its cheaper than what the hotels cost. http://www.bridgestreet.com/Spinnaker_Bay.htm

I think this may be... my 16th or 17th Otakon? I've only ever "attended" one or two Otakons though, spent the rest of them working on staff. Not really sure how many have gone by at his point.

Oh, and I'll just leave this here: Guest Pass SECJQ3A6ERB Expires August 3rd, 2014

I'll be there. I live in Baltimore so it'll be easy to get downtown for it.
