I have found airbnb (https://www.airbnb.com) to be a wonderful resource when traveling for business (as well as personal travel). I stayed at a great place within walking distance from the conference center at ALA midwinter in Seattle last year. I had an entire apartment to myself for less than a traditional hotel room. 

Happy Travels! Dawn

> Hi all:
> Imagine my surprise when I registered for PLA (or started to register anyway) and discovered that all of the hotels within walking distance are already booked. Silly me-I should have done this long ago apparently. Has anyone had any luck recently or have any suggestions for places that might not be too far? I'm trying to avoid renting a car if possible.
