    I should be heading to East 2013 for my third East and fourth Pax. It is always one of the best reasons to take time off of work.

    I'll definitely be going again! This will be year three for East! It's like an addiction now. I stayed at the Westin this year and that spoiled me.. And I don't want to stay anywhere else if I can avoid it.. The Westin was just amazing. I'm also going to switch up my vacation time so I can hopefully actually be there for the closing ceremonies!

    I want to get the Westin How are the rates for PAX? Last year I was pretty far from the Convention center wich was a super bummer, I also had to miss the closing ceremonies wich I disliked :(

    The Westin was $179/night before taxes for two double beds through OnPeak.

    Do any of the downtown hotels have multi-room suites? I'm having a hard time filtering search results. It seems that everybody considers two beds in the same room with a couch in another as a suite. Fail.

    $179/night Sounds amazing! I can not wait thanks for the info HuskyDork!

    I'll be heading to East again this year dressed as Canadaman. I intend to hit up the pre-PAX pubcrawl and probably leave on Sunday instead of Monday.

    That being said having been to both cons I can safely say that I prefer the East con-center. It's bigger and for me it is far easier to navigate. I do however like the fact that Prime is nestled in a hub of absolutely fantastic stuff whereas at East you have to walk or put up with really expensive restaurants.

    @Browncoat565 I went solo to East last year and had an amazing time. Don't let that be the thing that keeps you from going.
    East has a lot of similar pre- and post- PAX activities. There is a bar crawl (Pokecrawl), a Magical Mystery Tour, Pre-PAX Dinner, Pre-PAX Gaming Night, Girls Meetup, etc.
    yeah, at this point I'm more torn as tow wether I want to go to east or to au for the first international PAX, I am for ssure planning to go to two PAX's in 2013
