Today, I noticed that American Airlines reduced their airfare listing on a few Austin/Seattle routes I kept tabs on, so I went ahead and purchased my AA tickets to fly up to Seattle to attend Gnomedex 7.0.  I haven't attended Chris Pirillo's conference since version 4, which was held in Tahoe I believe, but I'm definitely looking forward to attending this one in Seattle.

Now, I still need to decide on my hotel options.  Any recommendations?
