To update the email thread on the result of last night's IRC discussion:
Luca found that, while AirBNB might be cheaper than one person staying
solo in a hotel room, two people sharing a hotel room is cheaper than
AirBNB, at least for the cheaper hotel options (still well-located).
Luca and I are consequently sharing a room in the La Residence Suite
Hotel, roughly a 10-minute walk from the sprint location and in the
heart of downtown Bellevue. Another sprint attendee will be in the Red
Lion hotel at his employer's expense; that hotel seems comparably
affordable although 10-15 minutes further away on foot. Not sure about
I'll email you and Steve McIntyre off-thread about the hotel cost for
Luca and me, and my flight costs. All seems within reasonable ranges by
