Or sleep in the street. This convention will be a once-in-a-magical-lifetime event.

You don't have to sleep in the street.

I considered sleeping on the street to use the money to buy my lecture notes, etc. etc., but found a place about half a mile away for roughly $40-48 a night via expedia.

Edward, you would do better to stay at the Red Roof Inn or the Econo Lodge near the Florida Mall. Much closer.

What is closest to the convention hotel? Prefer walking so as not to add car expense.

Thanks for the heads-up Richard. I re-booked for the Red Roof Inn Option--comes with free breakfast, wi-fi, and morning exercise. So I'm a happy camper with more money to spend for more important stuff--like lecture notes. :)

If you make a reservation via hotels.com there is this rebate offer for bums like myself:
