In terms of the greatest good for the greatest number of fans I am supporting Chicago.

Its easier for more people to get to, esp. those who may be going to their first convention or worldcon. Chicago is easy driving distance for much of the Midwest while Denver is rather isolated. It depends on who you want to see at the con, all your old friends who can afford to fly in, or a bunch of new faces amazed at their first worldcon?

Sentiment, Chicago was my first worldcon.

I like Chicago but have not been there since I think the 2001 Windycon.

Chicago has a good cadre of conrunners and supports three cons a year locally.

Good restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.

Actually four. Capricon, 2BeContinued, Duckon, and Windycon.

I keep thinking of 2BeContinued still being in South Bend.
