I booked a 2 bed/2 bath condo via VRBO in Lakeside Village- right across the street from the conference venue because it was the best lodging available when I booked. It's way too big for just one person and I'd love to share the cost with someone. My reservation booking is for Monday-Friday. Let me know if you are interested.
I talked to her last night: it's a big redtape mess at her school, but it sounds like it is going to work out, yay! Better to have to scramble for a room than to scramble for a plane ticket.
