Convention season—Worldon starts August 6th

For me, the convention season won't begin until Balticon on Memorial day weekend. Worldcon (in Denver this year) doesn't start until August, and today is the first day you can book a room at the con rate. There are plenty of hotels, but if you want a room in a particular hotel, it doesn't hurt to book early. The Denvention hotel page has a list of the hotels with notations on each one as to where it is and what code to use in booking a room.

For the Hyatt, the web link didn't want to give me the right rate, but the 888 number worked fine. I'm not positive we're going, but I want to keep my options open.
