Memphis Challenge hotels will be booked through Room Roster. (Type "Memphis" in text box below)
To support our Memphis Metro's goal of creating the best tournament experience for every team manager, coach and family, we have implemented new tournament management software to manage the following:
ALL traveling participants are encouraged to secure accommodations within this software so you can get the closet hotels and best rates!
Discounted rates at official tournament hotels have been pre-negotiated.
For those looking for a specific hotel that is not on our official list, the system will make available all remaining hotel inventory at current online rates.
2019 TOURNAMENT HOTEL BENEFITS
• Lowest group rates over the event dates with rate integrity
• More hotels to choose from, more rooms and more price points
• Travel agents can book for you after contacting our Marketing
The primary reason is to find a collective way to control the increase
in various hotels rates that we had been seeing over the past few
years and to make sure that we are blocking enough
hotels rooms at reasonable rates for our participants. With this
policy we have now had hotels come back to us and grant us larger
room blocks at the lower group rate. This means that more people
will be able to get into the "good" hotels at a reasonable
rate. We also adopted this program so that we can prove hotel usage
to the city, thus lowering the cost of the facilities used and keeping
the entry fees more constant. It also allows us to secure space
years out so that we know we can host the Memphis Challenge tournament at a consistent time
of the year.
How do I know we are getting the best group rates:
Tournament staff will routinely run rate integrity checks on the event
hotels for rooms over the event dates to make sure they are offering
the lowest group rates to our participants. (This excludes
employee, government, AAA and AARP rates) If you receive a
WRITTEN confirmation of a lower rate than we have published at one
of our event hotels, during the event dates, please forward that
information to us and we will take care of making sure you receive
the lower rate for the event blocked rooms.
