Thanks to Han Chuan who alerted me that ICANN has posted hotel and venue information on the website, I thought I'd take a few minutes to answer a couple of questions I've received about the hotel :)
If you possibly can, get a deluxe room in the South Tower of the Fairmont (a smaller, somewhat more exclusive hotel than the Swissotel). The older rooms in the North Tower really aren't in the same league. The renovated rooms on the higher floors of the Swissotel are pretty nice too, and have the advantage of better views because of their elevation. Both hotels offer city and harbor views - no prizes for guessing which you should choose :) 
Both are also connected to the Convention Center so you don't have to leave the complex to attend meetings. The complex also contains a large shopping mall, with a supermarket in the basement and plenty of cafes and affordable restaurants. There are a few okay-to-very-good bars in both hotels as well as the mall, and a couple of excellent high-end restaurants too. Oh, and a subway station beneath plus at least four taxi stands (though don't try getting a cab during rush hour or a rainstorm unless you're very patient as the complex is smack-dab in the middle of the city!)
Several other excellent hotels in different price ranges are within a reasonable walk (from 2-20 minutes) from the Convention Center. I'm happy to give folks the low down on these - just ask!
Hope this helps,
