It looks like I will attend meetings at the downtown Convention Center next April. I am hoping to find a decent, affordable hotel or bed and breakfast nearby. Any suggestions?

If you need to be within walking distance, its a confined area. I don't know about pricing, but I doubt affordable factors in. The closest that appears it might be affordable is the Hotel Figueroa.

The most affordable in the area that are within walking distance are probably the Ritz Milner and the Stillwell. They seem to have poor reviews. I do not know why. I live across the street from the Ritz Milner and the lobby is pretty nice. Not as nice as the O next door, but nice enough. Ritz Milner is probably around $100 a night mid week and the Stillwell is probably $80.

Wish people wouldn't use broad terms like "affordable." We don't know what's affordable to you. The only downtown hotel I've stayed at is the historic Millennium Biltmore, which you can sometimes get at an affordable (affordable for me, at least) price, especially using Hotwire or Priceline. I think the Sheraton is often one hotel people get through those services as well. www.betterbidding.com lists hotels others have gotten.

I appreciate the responses, they are helpful. I should have explained what affordable means to me, I am hoping for not more than $150 per night but I guess that is a fantasy!

I don't know why you would say that. Even the Sheraton is $149/night midweek in April. Luxe hotel right across the street is $157/night.

I would guess Hotel Figueroa is much cheaper. I would also guess that Ritz Milner is also cheaper, but I think you have to call both of those.

Posts on www.betterbidding.com included those from people who got rooms at the Westin Bonaventure for $75 and $82 and the Omni for $89 (plus fees and taxes). I've seen posts for the Biltmore for less than $150, though it seems that the Westin and Sheraton seem most common for those bidding on Priceline.

All of these hotels occasionally have sales, especially on weekends.
