    The place to be is the bar at the Hyatt Regency. Where we will probably all meet for dinner is Max and Erma's.

    I'll also plan a forum member dinner as it gets closer. More than likely for Friday night, very late...like 10:00PM.
    No one told me that last year Adina~ Of coarse I was at the other Hyatt last year about 1 mile from expo~ Hope to not make that mistake this year

    I've been fortunate enough to stay down town every time, but I did get off the shuttle bus at the wrong Hyatt year before last!

    The is now only one Hyatt in Columbus. The Hyatt Regency that is adjacent to the convention center and home of the "big bar."

    The old Hyatt on Capitol Square is now the Sheraton Columbus.

    Also, the Hilton Columbus that is under construction across from the convention center will not be ready for 2012, but will be open for 2013. It will have about 600 rooms.

    I wondered if the new hotel would be ready. It looks like it will be a nice one.

    Of course, then you have to factor in rent car or taxi rides. If you're going to go that route, you want to book a package deal through orbitz or the like, where you can get car, hotel, and air as a package deal.

    So, tell me how much you're looking to spend, and I can give you a list of choices.

    Will you be covering the show for your website?
    Yes for sure, the show will be covering.

    Default 2012 Arnold Invites

    Branch Warren To Defend Title
    at 2012 Arnold Classic


    COLUMBUS, Ohio – Branch Warren will return to the competitive stage for the first time in nearly a year when he defends his title at the 24th Annual Arnold Classic at the 2012 Arnold Sports Festival.
    Warren, who won the Arnold Classic and the British Grand Prix in March 2011, did not compete in the 2011 Olympia due to an injury. He will face three-time Arnold Classic champ and 2011 Arnold Classic Europe runner-up Dexter Jackson, 2011 Arnold Classic runner-up Dennis Wolf and 2011 fourth-place finisher Evan Centopani in an international field of 14 competitors.

    In the Ms. International contest, six-time champion Iris Kyle will gun for her third straight victory in Columbus. She will be challenged by four-time Ms. I winner Yaxeni Oriquen and 2011 third-place finisher Alina Popa in a field of 15.

    Four-time champ Adela Garcia will defend her Fitness International title against a field of 17 that includes 2011 runner-up and 2011 Arnold Fitness Europe winner Tanji Johnson and Camala Rodriguez, who finished fourth in Columbus last year.

    Two-time defending champ Nicole Wilkins and 2011 runner-up Erin Stern will resume their rivalry at the 2012 Figure International. Ava Cowan, who finished third in 2011, Cheryl Brown (5th in 2011) and Teresa Anthony (6th in 2011) also highlight the field of 16.

    Nicole Nagrani, winner of the inaugural Bikini International in 2011, is back to defend and will face a field of 18 that includes Sonia Gonzales and Nathalia Melo, who finish second and third, respectively, in 2011.

    Matthias Botthof (Arnold Classic), Alevtina Goroshinkaya (Ms. International), Diana Monteiro (Fitness International), and Raquel Hernandez (Figure) earn automatic invites based on overall victories in their respective classes at the 2011 Arnold Amateur IFBB Bodybuilding, Fitness, Figure & Bikini Championships. Gloria Keplinger Tarpley earned an invite into the Figure International based on her overall win at the 2010 Arnold Amateur.

    The 24th Annual Arnold Classic, Ms. International, Fitness International, Figure International and Bikini International contests will be held March 2-3 at Veteran Memorial and the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio during the Arnold Sports Festival.

    I'm starting to get a lot of messages about hotel choices. This guide from the Arnold website is the absolute best hotel tool to use. The first year I went, I used this to pick my room.
    http://arnoldsportsfestival.com/find-a-hotel/

    Just be sure to factor in taxi costs or parking costs if you're renting. Your initial taxi ride from the air port will be in the range of $20 to $25.

    If you're taxing from your hotel, you can pretty much stay all day. At the Olympia, there's generally a few hours between when the expo ends and the night show beings. At the Arnold, everyone just buses from the expo to the show. You won't have to go back and forth to change.
