Here’s some useful information to help you plan your trip:
You’ll be flying into small and friendly RDU, the Raleigh-Durham airport. In addition to Orbitz or whatever online booking service you prefer, check out Southwest.com, JetBlue.com and AirTran.com for great deals and (often) direct flights.
I’ve reserved a block of rooms at the Hampton Inn, which are available for $79/night. When I’m not on vacation with my family, I have a thing against spending hundreds of dollars for a place to sleep and pee. I like rooms that are clean, big enough to set up my laptop, and cheap. I also like that the Hampton includes breakfast and free wireless high-speed internet in the room and the lobby.
The rooms are available at the AdWords Workshop rate from Thursday through Monday morning. Call 919-471-6100 to reserve a room.

The Hampton Inn has a deal with a local cab company to transport guests to and from the airport for $25 each way. When you register, you’ll receive a packet with information on reserving a ride. Since there will be so few participants, we can try to coordinate schedules and save money and carbon by carpooling.
