Sadly I found a j-o-b and will have to work on the weekdays. But maybe some of us could meet in the evenings for a meal and drink or something.

Most of the visitors from overseas seem to like to stay in Shinjuku Century Southern Tower Hotel, Shinjuku Sunroute Plaza Hotel, or Shibuya Excel Hotel Tokyu. I'm guessing these hotels have good pricing advertised overseas.
To be honest, there's no real need to stay near the show but if you're along the south western side of central Tokyo it'll be good enough (i.e. along Shinjuku, Shibuya, Ebisu, Roppongi, etc.). You could stay on the other side of town, Akihabara (infamous Electric Town with all the gadgets) but it's little bit of a trek to the show. The location of the show itself is a nice but maybe a little quiet at night...you'll have to take maybe 2 train stops away to Shibuya (or Roppongi) for a better nightlife.
