Funny you should say that as Virgin sent me an email saying if I don't want to wait, apply for their credit card, I don't' like Chicago that much to go back just for a holiday.

To crown it all The Hyatt Regency where I was staying sent me an email thanking me for my custom and to say I only needed a short stay to move to a platinum level card, as it was I had free wifi in my room which was a perk but it was a bloody expensive hotel, there again Chicago is an expensive city, and I would only go back there for another Wcon which I believe they are going to put in another bid but it was a well run con. :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Huh. How did you get free wifi in the hotel room? We got charged $12 or so a day; it was only free in the attached conference center. Good con, though.

Chicago is expensive. Although, you can find good hotel deals. We went over Easter once and the rates were great! Couldn't figure out how we'd lucked out until I realized it was over the holiday.
