One way to solve this would be to send a reviewing team to the hotel, 
first. Hard work as it would be, I volunteer to be flown all over the 
world at vast expense, just so I get to sit in plush hotels and 
decide how luxurious it is. I'll even selflessly test out local beer. 
That's just how dedicated I am. Self-sacrifice is my middle name, me.

Okay, serious time.

These are things that the IETF could make a note of for "next time" - 
we could consider making a snag-list of issues that could be changed 
for "next time", assuming there is one (and I personally hope so, I 
thought the meeting was great).

Where we find a venue that is, in terms of unfixable problems, good, 
then we should repeat it, even if the initial meeting found fixable 
problems high. We can't fix a crime problem, nor a visa problem. In 
principle, though, smoking within the hotel is a fixable problem, 
however much I sympathize with Randy in particular, and otherwise the 
whole meeting seemed excellent to me. [And no, I didn't consider 
Prague to have much of a crime problem, and no, I don't really care 
about Cookies or Glass Bottles.]

Dave.
