I  am all registered at the hotel and CILDC.  My only disappointment is that again I have a room with out a view.  I am on the 5th floor looking out over several unattractive apartment buildings.  When I was on the organizing committe in 2001, I was on an upper floor with a beautiful view of the Washington Monument.  I guess those of us paying to go to the conference and not presenting don’t deserve a nice view.

I do have one other complaint.  Why does free access to the internet start on Monday, instead of on Sunday?  The hotel charges $12 a day for access.  Considering how much a room is a night, it should be free access for registered guests.

There is free wi-fi in the lobby area.
