    Where's everyone booked at? I think the Holiday Inn was the best deal this time around for a decent hotel, so I booked a room there for the weekend. Embassy was great last year, but just way too pricey this time around.

    Booked at the Gideon. Pricey, but most places were for that weekend.

    Oh wow, just checked and the prices jumped up a lot in the past few days.

    In late December Gideon was $230/night, now its over $300.

    I have both the Hilton and Embassy booked from Thurs-Sun, definitely coming up a day early to enjoy the town/golfing.

    The Hilton ended up being $650ish and the Embassy was a hair north of $1k. Once my friends confirm whether they are in or not, I'm probably cancelling the Embassy.

    They are not yet.

    As is, the Adelphi Hotel downtown. Both should open up in the spring.

    Adelphi is right on Broadway and should be pretty grand when its done

    I'm sure Adelphi will be up there in price with Embassy, Gideon and Pavillion, right, if not more?

    Hahaha, sorry about that. Don't worry, I booked before I posted them, and the prices didn't shift much until about a week ago. I actually think at one point they dropped a bit. They def just have some sort of algorithim that starts raising the prices when the system recognizes more and more people are booking for specific dates.

    Really wish I could stay at Embassy again, but I'm not shelling out that kind of money for two nights. I can go on a cruise for that price lol.

    I'll just go ahead and throw this out there now: ISO 2 reserves

    Oh I'm sure

    There's also development over by the Residence Inn (exit 15). Not really sure what it is but I'd have to assume another extend stay type hotel. Just don't see any signs out front of what it is.

    Regardless book a hotel that doesn't charge you right now and allows free cancellation. The rumor is still just a rumor, but cscottrun is a trust worthy person giving this info, and, well ballsfest wouldn't be booked if this wasn't pretty much concrete

    I was actually phoned by the Turf and Spa early today asking why I didnt call them about the rumor and book a room, ha.

    My room is now booked. Lets keep those fingers crossed!

    With Ballsfest being booked already.... I have to assume this is going in the right direction.

    Thanks!

    FWIW

    Hotels.com has both the Hilton (downtown on Broadway) for $199/night and the Saratoga Downtowner for $135/night. Both can pay at hotel and have free cancellation. Not bad at all.....

    What's the address for the Hilton? I don't see a Hilton listed for that price.

    Nvm: When I adjusted it to 3 nights, it dropped to $199. Its more if you have it set to 2 nights.

    wasn't aware of the nightly change... from what i remember Hotel.com usually shows you the price differential between a thursday night and a weekend night, but I guess now what they do is average it out. Last year i paid $811 because it was something like $210 for Thursday and $279 for Fri/Sat then taxes/fees. I guess now they just average it out.

    Hell $150 less for this weekend, I'll take it. End cost is $674 after all said and done.

    The Turf and Spa Motel, its right on Broadway, near the Holiday Inn/towards SPAC. I have stayed there for the last 6 years for DMB and Phish. The place is prettyyyyy run down but its great at the same time. They are old school owners, write your name down/names of those in your party, Wont let you return next year/season if you leave the room a mess, have an awesome outdoor pool area, etc. As long as you dont mind a room that looks like its from the 1970s... youre set!

    Its $124 plus tax a night ( goes up $15 for 3 ppl and another $15 for 4 ppl).. 3 night minimum!

    Unfortunately, it looks that way. Sucks, because that thread is definitely the only actually active DMB related thread during the off-season. Hopefully it gets unlocked soon.
