That's my thought too. How about everyone else?
Make it someplace that the family can also enjoy or a business hotel that's closer by?
seems to me that unless everybody plans on leaving their wives & kids behind a local business hotel probably won't cut it.
While I'm interested in theory, I have no idea at this point if I'll be able to make it or not...
Another place to consider is the Poconos, it's not too far from NY/NJ and there's lots to do there. (not sure what's available as far as hotels though)
