As I understand it this is the venue. I've been trying to make it to NHC for the last three years. This year is a must. My wife is from San Diego and has been wanting to take a trip down there for some time. Guess we'll start saving our pennies now.

I'm totally there next year. Any idea where it's actually going to be held in terms of hotel(s)/convention center?

IIRC, that is where comic con is held. Nice venue, but a little pricey.
Bring some extra cash.

If its by the TC, than it will be easy to hop on the Blue line of the trolley to get down town to the asslamp and down town where there are a good amount of good beer bars, or you can go east on the trolley and get to Oggie's and a couple other not so special other brewers. Also its fairly close to Ballast point's small brewery.

Nope, that's held downtown at the Convention Center.

It's about 4 miles from downtown, not isolated in the slightest. Quite central actually, located on Hotel Circle where most of the hotels are in central San Diego.

Sounds like a good spot. I've stayed down near the Gaslamp before and out at the Mission Valley Hilton a few years back. I think I'm already starting to convince SWMBO on this one!

I've been to that place for some scientific meetings. I stayed at another nearby hotel and walked a couple blocks to the meetings. The facilites were nice. It's been 5 yrs now. When I was there, the golf course was a giant fenced off construction site. This location is a very short walk to the metro (or whatever it is called). Also for the non-drinking spouses, there is a nice mall just the other side of the tracks.
