Alright, I have a strange question. I'm staying at the Hampton 3 miles away from the convention center. There's a shuttle between them which is all good and well but not convenient at 3am, and I don't want to walk 3 miles after dancing for several hours. So my question is this: if I biked over, would there be somewhere to park it?

Basically I'm find just chaining it to a pole somewhere so long as I won't get fined for it :P If anyone knows if there's a bike rack somewhere that would be great or if anyone has done this in the past. Otherwise I will try to call someone but I'm not really sure who I would ask.

Thanks!

Off the top of my head, I cannot picture a bicycle parking rack but then again, I've never really looked. I'd suggest calling the Hyatt directly and ask them, they should know about their property. I would hope they do, that's actually a very good idea! :)

Alright, I called Hyatt and they said that some employees ride their bikes to work and they chain them against a fence there. I'm not totally sure what fence this was, but I'm sure it can't be too hard to spot, having several bikes chained to it already :D Hope this helps you all too!
