If anyone considers not staying at the primary hotel as a basic reason 
not to attend an IETF meeting, there almost certainly are deeper issues 
to worry about.

On the other hand, if there are no rooms at a 'reasonable' rate and with 
sufficiently convenient access to the venue, then that's a 
straightforward and serious IAOC problem, because it isn't supposed to 
happen... It used to be an issue but the staff and meetings committee 
attend to it rather carefully, these days, in my direct experience.
