Wanted: AAA roommates

Tue, 24 Oct 1995 16:28:17 EST5EDT

Two grad students at Univ. S. Carolina are looking for 2-4 other
bodies to take up space in a hotel room and lower everyone's cost.

The hotel is a Days Inn (I think; that sort, at least) in Maryland
outside of Washington. However, it is 1 1/2 blocks from a stop on
the same metro line as DuPont Circle (the nearest stop to the Hilton,
about a 10 min. walk), and the metro runs until shortly after
midnight, so it shouldn't put much of a cramp in your schmoozing

We are getting a room for Wed-Sat nights, inclusive. Base rate is
$69+tax, 2P/2B, with charges for extra people being $10 per extra
person per night. (And, if I get my free trial membership in
Citibank's halfprice hotelclub in time, potentially half that). So
for three people including us, that's about $126/person for the four
nights; four people, about $105. (And that's if we actually tell
them about extra people). Metro fares are probably $3-4 round trip,
each trip (depending on whether you go during rush hour).

The only catch, if such it is, is that my roommate-to-be is a guy.
But he shared a room with me and three other women at the AAAs in
Atlanta last year and wasn't any trouble. He even volunteered to
sleep on the floor every night.
