Re: ROLL CALL: New Years!!!!

It's all GA, the seats and the floor. If you really want a seat, then I suggest getting there earlier, especially for New Years. I prefer to be out and about on the floor

Last year I used priceline and booked a hotel, airfare, and rental car for less than $750! This was at the beginning of December. But the bad thing was my hotel was close to the airport instead of downtown. It was only about a 15-20 min drive downtown so it wasn't that bad. I didn't know it at the time of booking though because I wasn't familiar with San Francisco. But this time I want to stay in the city so I will have to fork over a couple more bucks.


Yeah we staid by the airport in 2009, it wasn't bad and definitely way cheaper. 2010 for Phil's birthday and again on new years staid downtown and last year on the wharf. I have figured out where I like staying the best

I can't come close to those prices. But I have to fly almost twice as far. And, I get to hang out in Atlanta for a couple hours.
Haven't been to Atlanta yet. I did book everything separately. I wanted to stay at that hotel everyone else is. So I booked
that first. Didn't really think to put it together as a package. Not sure if I could've.

I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.

I always use expedia because I can get the flight, hotel and car all in one shot but have never done the research to figure out if they give the cheapest rates or if it is better to book everything individually to get the best deals? Anyone have insight on that?


when i booked i played with all the options, corporate sites and expedia packages and such.
The United and Whitcomb individually came out exactly the same as doing the package through expedia. I use expedia often and usually have very good luck with 'em except in this case i booked 6 weeks before the shows were announced and chose to go through the individual sites in case of any cancellations.

Chester, as far as flying through Hartsfield airport, bring your walking shoes, it is huge. It can take quite a while to get from one terminal to another, the center corridor (where the trams run) to the end gates on both sides can be a half mile. It is one airport i will not take less than an hour layover.

We are picking up our rental car on the 1st when we plan to explore outside the city then return it to SFO on the fourth when we fly out, no reason (imo) to have a car downtown, BART and cable cars or taxis are the best way to get around.

Good call not to have a car in S.F., besides the traffic, and the option for public trans, I think the Whitcomb charges $30-$40 a night for parking.

Got plane tix testerday, and today they dropped $17.50. Could've been worse for sure. Right though, the fares aren't that bad right now so I'd go ahead and snag 'em before they do go up. Staying at the Cova Hotel, haha. I've heard things....... I'm sure it will be cool. Anyone have a good Tenderloin story?? Or is anyone else staying there?

I can't sit in downtown SF for 4 straight days.

Anyways, we'll have a car and can take a couple people for any side trips to the park or the Haight. In addition if you are visiting the wharf, drop by!!

All this assuming we can even go
