I've only been there a few times myself -- including two stays not directly during a convention, such as the time I got bumped off a flight and Alaska Airlines put me up there. However, besides the historic aspects, this is also a birthday present for Lisa (her birthday was the 16th; we planned this trip instead of me going to Oregon last weekend).
