    Looking forward to another Celebration! I've been to all 6 US celebrations, but this will be my first overseas...

    Has anyone figured out the hotel info yet? I'm trying to see where the hotels relate to the convention center, but the hotel maps don't appear to show it, and I don't see the distance anywhere...

    EDIT: I think they refer to the convention center as "fair grounds". I just booked my room. I didn't see it ask for a credit card anywhere, so I hope I didn't screw it up...

    There are a couple hotels nearby, but to rich for my cup.

    From the hotels offered by the CE, the nearest are Hotel Jung and Hotel Bredeney (I selected this one), at nearly the same distance.

    FYI - there appears to be a hotel right next to (or 100 yards from) Messe Essen that doesn't appear on the list of official hotels. It's called the Atlantic Congress Hotel Essen and I found it when I did a search on Hotels.com. It's rather pricey at roughly $240/181ε per night, but it appears to be a four star hotel and one of the few within about a mile of Messe Essen.

    I knew about that, but I am not willing to pay 180€ per night to be near the Messe, it's outrageous and I am sure it's due to Celebration.

    LOL! It took me until today to look up the word Messe to figure out that it means 'fair' or in this case Essen Convention Center. At first I thought Messe was a town or part of Essen.

    Just booked my room at the ParkHotel in Essen. It's a hotel with 17 rooms and I booked the last one. However, I'm still a bit doubtful whether or not I should cancel this one (which is free of charge) and book a room at the more luxurious Bredeny hotel.

    Just wondering, any scummers staying at the ParkHotel as well?

    Got a call from Booking.com last week, saying the Parkhotel was full and they had made a mistake by putting up the one last room as available. A mistake on their part, which can happen. They resolved the issue very professionally though. I'm now staying at the Ruhr Hotel. A bit more expensive, but Booking.com will compensate the difference

    I booked direct through Holiday Inn. Booked 4 nights for me and my buddy for £140 each, bargain if you ask me! So staying at the holiday inn, not the express.
    Check Expedia, the still have alot of rooms left.
    Anyone else driving from the UK?
