Yes this property is not in the Times Square area.  Considering the concerns
expressed at the last meeting over costs, I decided that since moving a bit away
from that area would save $50 plus per night in sleeping room expenses and $15
or so per day in meeting room expenses, a short cab ride or subway hop would be
easily justified.

Please vote me out of office if I made the wrong decision.

The hotel offered me $203, $1 less than Lee and $11 less than the group

According the hotel web site, the hotel is at 31st and 7th Ave about 3 short
blocks south and 2 long blocks west of the empire state building. This is a
fair distance from the Times Square area where I expected the meeting to be.
Perhaps hotels near times square were too expensive.

FYI, I just called the hotel.

They offered me a studio suite for $204/night -- without any "special"
