I asked about the possibility of cancelations and whether I could get on
a waiting list, but as I understand it, a cancellation is up for grabs and I
get the impression that a conference reservation if cancelled would not be
held for conference goers. She suggested that if I knew of anyone planning to
cancel that they could change the reservation to my name, but if cancelled the
room would probably be gone. I was told by friends to book early, but guess I
wasn't early enough! The Sheraton across the street has rooms starting at
$300+, but I think I will walk an extra block and save a few dollars!
