Still trying to find somewhere to stay for conference? Perhaps the friends you were relying on are full up with their adult children boomeranging home or maybe you just haven’t got round to it yet. Despair not, you can find amazing bargains on some last minute hotel booking web sites.
Expedia.co.nz and wotif.com are two worth trying. At the time of writing both sites had plenty of reasonably priced central city accommodation for conference week. On Expedia you can check traveller reviews where available and both have map links so you find out how close they are to the Convention Centre. Tripadvisor.com is another that has particularly good traveller reviews and all have online booking.
