    Default NAHBS 2013 - Hotels/Transport Info

    So I got a " sales call" from the NAHBS hotel committee (I was like really? You're already booking up on rooms? I haven't even returned from Vegas yet!) and at first I was like, yeah whatever. So they tried to sell me some kinda pricey room options and I told them to call me back after Interbike.

    But curiously, I went to the NAHBS website and went on to the NAHBS hotel and it was better priced than all the options from the hotel-wizard that called me. I said screw it and went ahead and booked my room (good price at the Crowne.) Being in a planning state I thought I'd check out transpo from airport to hotel while I was at it and decided to go car free. For anyone interested, there is a Skyride option at the Denver Airport that takes you from the airport to the convention center downtown for $9. I won't need a car once I get there and so this is perfect for me. The NAHBS hotel is 2 blocks from the convention center and so $9 (vs. $75-$100 plus for a taxi or $100's and $100's for a car which will sit in a parking lot for the duration.

    If you need more info holla at me joni@texmarket-usa.com.

    My wife has been wanting to take a trip back to Colorado for a while. I mentioned this as a potential reason to go, but thinking it was a long shot. She got really excited, even about the show. She's awesome. So it looks like I may make the trip.

    Kentucky AND Colorado during Feb? I can probably only get one approved.

    I'll be driving up from Nuevo Mejico in an RV with a couple riding buddies. We'll have to find a spot close to the expo. Expect us to be very drunk.

    Booked a cheap flight on Southwest & a cheap bed on AirBNB....but does anyone know the best way (i.e., cheapest!) way to get to from the airport to Denver proper?

    Looks like the $9 Skyride option the OP mentioned. I'm looking for cheap transportation/housing as well...might go with AirBNB too.

    This does indeed look like the best option. From what I gathered from the linked site, the bus leaves DEN once per hour for downtown and will drop off at the convention center. $9 is a pretty good price for this if that's how it works out. My flight gets into DEN about 10:30 on Thursday. Unless someone has figured out a better way to do it, I imagine this is the best (cheapest) option. Super Shuttle looks to be about $22 from DEN into downtown.

    If someone has figured something else out we'd love to hear about it!
