I was surprised to see that they still had rooms available for points (10,000 Starwood Points per night) for early in the week of the convention.  While this may not seem like much I don't remember there being any rooms available for points in the last few years.

Cash and points (5,000 points and $75) was an option for the 7th of August if anyone is looking to extend their stay :)

I wonder if this has something to do with the Saturday requirement for the housing portal (housing portal shows that there are rooms available Monday through Wednesday for the Westin but you can't reserve them since you don't meet the Saturday requirement).
