Goober and Jamauss = Thank you again. The conference is at the Mayo Clinic Education center - I believe it is on the the main hospital campus.
Looked at the two places you mentioned Goober, but both more than I am willing to spend. Three that look reasonable include the Arizona Biltmore, Intercontinental or RItz Carlton. Are these a reasonable distance to Mayo? What is you take on these places?
Thanks again... I really appreciate it since I don't know these places...
