If someone is still planning on putting on the Paris race in October, they need to decide soon or many people will not be able to get off work on such short notice.

My guess for a hotel would be Sams Town. Some people do stay at the Fiesta Henderson as well.

I stayed at Boulder Station last time. It was pretty cheap and had descent rooms.

I think Sunset Station is a little better than Boulder Station to stay at but you might not be able to get the same pricing...
