And Tonopah is only 1 mile from Ararat Mountain! We could make a post-conference trip to visit Noah's Ark, the world's first implementation of a binary operating system!
In the vanishingly small chance that Richard was serious, the prices there look good:
The quaint Tonopah Station Hotel runs about $60 a night for a standard room with either 2 queen beds or 1 king bed. They have 75 rooms. And a 24-hour in-house restaurant. And an attached casino, of course. Conference room? No idea. http://www.tonopahstation.com/hotel.html
The classier Mizpah Hotel reopened last year after a throrough overhaul, which is needed because it's over 100 years old. Reviews in the past few months have been very positive. But the standard rooms run between $100 and $130 a night. ("Economy room" = single queen bed in smaller room: $79 a night). Free wireless Internet. In-house cafe and restaurant. NO attached casino. Only 47 rooms. Conference room? No idea. http://mizpahhotel.net/
Bottom line: I'd prefer Reno.
