I attended the March ASW for a total cost of $100.
I bid for a hotel room on Priceline, got a great deal at $40/night for a downtown (4*) hotel. If you stay in the downtown area, you can buy cheap daily transit passes ($6/24 hours) to travel to and from the law school, which is about 20 minutes away.
How far are you traveling? If you are traveling around 500-600 miles, consider taking a bus. I booked a bus ticket really early, and got return tickets for about $40 (500 miles each way). You can try Megabus or Greyhound. I traveled overnight, saving the cost of one night's stay. So I departed at around 11pm, slept on the bus, got to Minneapolis at 7am in the morning.
Day 1: Checked in early at the hotel (they had free early check-in). Freshened up, used city transit to get to law school and return to the hotel in the evening.
Day 2: Checked out early next morning, kept my bags at the hotel front desk. 'Transitted' to law school and back in the afternoon. Walked to bus terminal in the evening, took overnight bus back home.
Of course, if you are traveling from the West coast, disregard what I said
