    Default Cheap Hotels for FDIC?

    Anybody got any tips for a cheap hotel that's within walking distance of the Convention Center in Indy? I'm hoping that a few of you might have discovered one somewhere that isn't already well known and booked out.

    you will not get them unless you get them out by the airport. Way to late to start looking now.

    Last year I secured rooms through one of my Manufacturers but did not have them confirmed until way late. To cover myself, I believe I had a back up room at the Hampton Inn or Days Inn out near the Airport. There is also a Laquinta Inn near the Airport... Get on the phone...make some calls.

    We stay at the Super 8 in Brownsburg. Gotta drive anyway. It's only a 20 minute jaunt from Brownsburg to the Center. Got a Bob Evans there, so breakfast will be good.

    To those of you that are still looking for Hotels.
    There are a couple of hotels at the Emerson Exit, on the south side
    a trip of about 10-15 min to downtown if traffic is a lil slow.
    It will probably be cheaper too than staying downtown.
    If ya need me to get the phone #'s for ya let me know

    Certainly seems that way - I spent 4 hours surfing the net and didn't find a whole lot. I've managed to get a room at the Comfort Inn (only 1 block walk) for the Sunday through Wednesday nights, despite FDIC's hotel booking agency showing it as being booked out. I'm flying into Indy from Down Under, so won't have a car (or a clue where I'm going) so somewhere within a few blocks is the go.
