A follow up on the issue of hotels off campus at AoIR ...

I spent a productive evening via the web booking a place in Brighton. There 
are discount sites from many places of course, but I actually settled on 
advance payment for the Hilton. There are 2 Hiltons, and both have advance 
rates of 50 UK Pounds/night, but you have to book in advance and pay all of 
it in advance -- deals are available from the Hilton site. I believe you 
have to do this 21 days in advance.  (start at 

         This is much lower than the Thistle Hotel.  But, there is also a 
list of "apprived hotels on the University of Sussex site (tricky to find!) 
for more options
There it also says you can ask to make a University of Sussex rate booking 
depending on availability -- they look to be 10% or so cheaper on their rate.

So, I have booked at the Hilton Brighton Metropole (details below) -- I've 
no idea how to get to the university, but it looks like bus/taxi distance 
on the maps. If anyone else is in that region, please contact me and we can 
share taxis.


PS. Please order up sun for my time on the beach :-)
