    We're planning more Frequent Traveler University events for later in the year and kindly request your input as to where they would be most convenient for you to attend.

    Thanks for your feedback and you may choose more than one location if interested.

    I'll always vote for every meeting in Vegas. Always easy to get to from anywhere.

    I like how I could vote for more than one choice. I'll take Seattle or PHX. Or what about someplace like PDX? And I suppose SNA-area would be too close to LA to be fair.

    No surprise Seattle is a winner. DoubleTree across from the airport could probably host it, but the area is a little weird. I think we'd all enjoy being able to take the light rail into downtown and be closer to attractions.

    What happened to SF and LA? Both have convenient flights to everywhere and SF is a top tourist destination.

    Among the choices listed, Seattle has a very nice air museum with a Concorde you can walk through.

    We just did LA, we wanted to do San Fran, but hotel prices are crazy at the properties that can hold this large of a crowd. For example, the best price I can get at the Hyatt or Westin by SFO (hotels that has room for 700+ people conferences) is 169 per night from September through December. Sure, there are cheaper properties around, but the upcoming FTU in April has 400 rooms, or over 90% of all rooms at the host property booket. People prefer the convenience of staying at the host property and we want to make sure we can offer that

    Somewhere West to balance out the DC FTU. SEA, SFO, SAN...
    How about Portland !!! Easy metro transportation ! Rooms should be cheap in the fall. The NINES would be AWESOME !

    I actually like Portland Cause I'm from there.. But New Orleans is Great cause everyone loves New Orleans.. They have a fabulously huge Hyatt Right next to the Super Dome which is in walking distance to everything. I didn't like the one in LA cause it was by nothing.. but the airport.. and the area around it was not friendly. I think you need night life around the hotel that it's booked at. Being from Washington State I'm not opposed to Seattle either but I agree with Scottrick that it needs to be downtown.. cause downtown Seattle is AMAZING.. as is New Orleans.

    Portland! No sales tax, great light rail system, temperate weather. Portland has been a good airport for mileage runs, too.

    Please not Vegas--my lungs can't take the cigarette smoke.

    SPG Swan/Dolphin has the largest convention center in Orange County and is walking distance to the Mouse's Epcot. You can travel the world in a day at Epcot :D
