The walk isn't bad at all! It's not exactly right around the corner, but if you don't mind a quick 3-5 minute walk you'll be fine. There's also shuttles that can take you to/from the hotel if you're carrying a lot of stuff, or are just really tired.

I stayed at the Aloft last year, and will be staying there again this year.

One of the best things about it is that they offer free cords to hook up your Xbox/Latptop/PS3, etc so you can watch any anime you bought or you can bring games to play. ^_^

We called the hotel to find out what was going on with the extra cost and they informed me that the price was $119 for single, $140 for double, $150 for triple, and $160 for quad. I said that the info Acen was giving out said double, triple and quad were all the same $140. She said that they "might wave the extra fee" when we're there, but she couldn't guarantee it.

Can someone on the Acen Staff in charge of the Hotel info, find out what we need to do to get the extra cost waved, or if that is indeed correct, update the rates accordingly?
