I am very happy to announce that I have secured a great rate at a hotel for OpenSQLCamp (a free weekend conference for open source databases such as MySQL, Postgres, SQLite, and NoSQL databases). We have a room block at the Doubletree Club Hotel Boston Bayside at 24 Mt. Vernon Street in Boston at a rate of $149 per night, for single or double occupancy*, for both Friday night, October 15 and Saturday night, October 16. Wireless internet access, which is usually $9.95 per night, is included in the room fee, so there's no hidden extra there. There is also a free shuttle from Boston's Logan Airport to the hotel**. The subway is steps away from both the hotel and the venue (MIT Stata Center on the corner of Main and Vassar Streets in Cambridge). Subway fare is $2.00 each way, so if you stay at the hotel you'd have $8 extra in transportation fee.
You can reserve your room by booking here. You are responsible for paying for your own room. Some more useful information:

I expect rooms will sell out quickly, so book as soon as possible. This rate is good through September 23rd, so reserve right away.
Do not forget to register for OpenSQLCamp Boston!
* If you want triple occupancy, it's $169 per night and for quadruple occupancy, it's $189 per night.
** call the hotel beforehand to figure out logistics; I am not sure if you have to call for a pickup or what.
