I cannot say anything about Boston (I don't plan on going), and I'm definitely
not saying for everyone, but here are my (rough) numbers from previous summits.
hotel (recommended) $1100
Overall, Atlanta would be the most expensive for me, if I used the recommended
hotel. Even more expensive than Tokyo.

Small correction: *real* price of Sheraton was $220. You're referring to the
"marketing" price, which does not include a lot of what you have to pay. Dunno
if it's the same for Boston.
