I received my hotel confirmation last night.  The registration team did an amazing job of responding to my email within 15 minutes and 2 hours later I received my confirmation. 

@DBegley-I chose the International House Hotel.  I usually stay in big chains so this will be a change.  I saw good reviews on tripadvisor and the location seems good.  I was also looking for a no smoking hotel.  Almost all are, though I did fine one or two that have designated smoking rooms or floors.  I also like the free wifi.  The JW Marriott charges $12 or so a day for wifi.  Thanks again.
