ok I am better now I found a decent priced hotel in university city depending on which party/pub crawl I go to will determine how far of a cab ride it

I would prefer something closer to front street but if I go to the pub crawl I will be fine

Hi,

I know there's a medical conference at the Convention Center from March 13-16 (asthma/immunology); could be a mitigating factor.

You may want to check with the hotels directly. Many times i have put in dates and nothing would come up and when i called the hotel directly there would be availability.
