I'm now looking for the hotels. Curious to know where folks are staying? Since the Assembly is at the Convention Center, there appears to be no official hotel. Looks like the Embassy Suites and Marriot are the two closest hotels.
CBF website also recommends the Sheraton and Hyatt a bit further away, .4 miles. Anyone know if that is an easy walk? I see a large expressway in the path.

We can park within four blocks of the convention center for $5 to $12 a day. The motel is rather close to to a restaurant where we used to go frequently for breakfast on Saturday mornings. We have stayed in a number of Red Roofs around the country including another in Tampa. I am still questioning the parking but if the down town bit falls through we will go to a park and ride and take the bus. at $7.00 a day for the two of us .
Bruce, If you read this why don't we think about trying to get BL.C folk together for a meal at the Spaghetti factory in Ybor city, a fairly short "Trolly" ride from the Convention center.
