          The Omni hotel. It's got a skywalk that connects to the 3rd base side of Petco Park. It's a bit pricey, but sometimes you can find deals there.

          We stayed there and had a view of the San Diego Bay and the Coronado Bridge out our window. We had a California King sized bed and an awesome room. I'll difinately stay there again. If you haven't already gone, check into getting a room there.

            i recently got back from chicago, from my first trip to the area

            i stayed at the best western river north hotel.

            it has free parking

            it is a good centrally located hotel, in a good nightlife area, within close walking distance to the trains to both wrigley & us cellular.

              I don't know what its like in 2006, but in 1998 I stayed at the Holiday Inn right near Camden Yards. It was 130 bucks a night and a block away from the stadium. You can kinda see the holiday in behind the stands when you look out at the skyline beyond left-center.

              To put it in perspective, I stayed at a Holiday Inn in Brookline, MA (I think, I was at the end of the Green Line) the following year and paid exactly the same to be outside of the city.

                Where to stay in Houston?

                Does anyone have a suggestion for where to stay in Houston? I would prefer to stay where the Twins will be staying? Any ideas?

                  They've probably already played the series, I hope you got your answer.

                  But you can find out where your "visiting" team plays on the road by looking at their official team media guide. I think they're around $10 or so.

                  Maybe someone on a Twins bulletin board has one handy and could check it for you.

                    Are you inviting us to stay at your Parent's house while in Cleveland. If you are you better warn them.
                    Seriously, there are a lot of decent hotels within walking distance of Petco Park. If you have to stay away from downtown, take a trolley to the game. Parking is still a problem.

                        Cincinnati

                        If you are going to Cincinnati and you wish to keep down expenses, stay across the river in Covington. The Holiday Inn is around $90 nightly and there are several other nice places. You can ride TANK across the Ohio for $1.00 each way and it will drop you off right in front of Great American Ball Park.

                            Is TANK anything like the Metro Duck they used to have in Chicago?

                              being the 2006 season is coming to an end, it is now time to start planning for my 2007 road trip.

                              i am going to be going to san diego, los angeles, san fran, & oakland. i have been to san diego before, so i know where to stay. but i have never been to LA or San Fran. we are going to be flying into san diego, and driving to san fran, then leaving from there.

                              i was just wondering if there are any areas in LA or San Fran to avoid. and what is the best way to drive from LA to San Fran. (pacific coast highway, or i-5)

                              where would be a good place to stay in both cities, we will have 4 days in each city to sightsee as well, so we would like something that is around the sites, not just the stadiums.

                                And I assume you're going to Anaheim too. I just did that trip this summer. Driving SD to SF is a LONG haul

                                <i was just wondering if there are any areas in LA or San Fran to avoid. and what is the best way to drive from LA to San Fran. (pacific coast highway, or i-5)>

                                I think the locals said the Pacific Coast highway was more scenic but I-5 was faster.

                                <where would be a good place to stay in both cities, we will have 4 days in each city to sightsee as well, so we would like something that is around the sites, not just the stadiums.>

                                I didn't stay near any sites (I did five cities in five days ) just an inexpensive hotel near SF with a community whirlpool
