I am going to start writing about hotel and accommodation options.
As I write about each place I will mark it off on the previously mentioned map.
(oh and i'll know about group rates in the next couple days. )
1.Hotel Le Jolie

Hotel Le Jolie is by far the closest hotel to Pete's Candy Store and pretty centrally located. Though lacking in scenic surroundings, the rooms are great. The hotel is new which is nice, though be aware that the rooms are small and can only accommodate 2 people. Chris and I stayed during our east coast visit and really liked it.
While you could probably find more spacious digs by renting a loft or a hotel in LIC, this place would allow you to not worry about cabs or transportation.
