As you know, Icrontic Oktoberfest 2012 is going to be held at the new ICHQ in Detroit. As it is a house under renovation, with only one shower and two toilets, as well as a distinct lack of furniture, accommodations will be slightly less home-y than the old ICHQ.
That said, there is a world-class hotel just blocks from ICHQ Detroit. It's a very straight and quick walk to the Motor City Casino, just up Trumbull from ICHQ Detroit.
If I can get at least 7 rooms booked, I can get a group rate of $129/night for a double room (two beds). The rate includes free parking and internet. The rooms are very swank and the MCC is a top-notch destination in Detroit.
The thing about where we live in Detroit is that there aren't many accommodations nearby that aren't nice hotels. We live very close to downtown Detroit so there are a lot of business and tourist-class hotels, but a distinct lack of chain motels like Warren had (La Quintas and whatnot).
The other option for those willing to share rooms is the Hostel Detroit, which is far cheaper and also very close.
At any rate, for me to get the group rate for Motor City Casino, I need definite headcounts. Please respond here if you are interested in staying at the Motor City Casino.Here is the spreadsheet
. Row number is hotel room. Up to four people per room (if beds will be shared). Those who request rooms alone will have the other three slots marked "Unavailable"
