“It is so valuable to stay in the hotel of the Convention – I would almost make it a requirement – I originally wanted to look for cheaper housing options on Priceline, but was SO glad I could just jet up to my room for more resumes or to change or grab some music etc … It would have been a mistake to stay somewhere else.” – Caryn Marlowe, Convention participant
