Hi All!

Thanks for all the good advice on how to get to the Comic Con! I've now 
registered me and my wife for the full 4 day pass (if you travel all the 
way around the globe you might as well go for the largest ticket right? 
:)). Anyhow, about hotel.. I didn't find any links through the San Diego 
Comic Convention homepage, only a "coming soon" page. Anyone know any 
hotel or two that are at least in the vicinity of the convention that 
they could recommend? I haven't got the slightest clue which to pick. 
Rather not the cheapest ones but not to expensive either if possible.

I'm really looking forward to this and I've been telling myself every 
year that "this year I will go". Now this year I at least got around to 
get some tickets so I hope nothing else gets in the way!
