Hey, I´ve been twice, in 06 and 07. Tickets are already on sale for it AFAIK so check out their website.
Hotels in the area are crazy busy during the con and can be expensive, like 150 dollars a night, but i´d strongly recommend the Holiday Inn on the bay which is about a 15 - 20 minute walk from the convention centre. its opposite that air craft carrier that they've turned into an aviation musum (worth a visit imo). There's a free shuttle bus that runs to it and a lot of the other hotles as well. Rooms are great as are the facilities and the bar serves good food.
If you can't get that hotel then try the Bristol Hotel in the gas lamp district of San Diego, lots of good bars and restaurants etc. Try be as close to the con as possible as getting there in the mornings is a bit of a pain with the traffic and the public transport in SD isn't the best.
