That can work well in some circumstances - as you say, Vancouver works just
fine that way (as long as .1/.3/.17 get to be in the Fairmont of
course...), however, in contrast, the recent meeting in San Antonio sucked
as a consequence of the meetings being spread across 3 locations, one of
which was a long way from the other two.

Interestingly enough (as it was one of only 2 overseas venues to date), the
other place where the multi-hotel approach worked just fine was Enschede -
the meeting space was all on one campus, and the downtown area was a short
stroll from the main hotels.
