Going to see John Mayer in Sept at Uptown Theatre - where is best place to stay close ?
The Uptown is walkable from Westport. (although I would only do it at night with a group of people). In Westport, there is a Holiday Inn Express and The Quarterage. I've been in both and would reccomend them. They are the closest. The Country Club Plaza is just 5 minutes to the South and there are plenty of nice hotels. if you prefer Downtown, its only 5 minutes north and once again, there is a wide variety.
By the way, the Uptown is a great venue to see concerts in. I go there quite regularaly and its my favorite place to see a show.
I almost forgot, there is a Rodeway Inn just down the street from Uptown. Whatever you do, dont stay there, lots of horror stories about that place!
