I have rooms blocked out for the event so out of towners, you guys are very welcome to come! Room rates at the Hilton are usually $165 for a double but our special rate is at $85 a night. $250 for a suite for you ballers (the hotel has 4, I already bought two of them =D). Just ask for the Warzone tournament group rate.
Aug. 22nd is the last day you can book a room at this rate so GET ON IT!
Come make a weekend out of this event! I have setup a cash bar for the tournament on both days so get your drink on, hit up the 24 hour IHOP a block away, and crash on Saturday at the Hilton.
Make sure to cheers me when you got a drink in hand. I’ll be the guy with the vodka tonics in one hand and long islands in the other. =D
We are working on a social event for Friday night as well so you may want to book both Friday and Saturday night! It will be worth your time!
As this is near an airport, there is a parking fee for the hotel. Worry not, I’ve lowered the rate to a measly $3 a day. Carpooling is encouraged.
There is a 24 hour IHOP down a block as well as a Carl’s Jr, El Torito, Gulliver’s Prime Rib, and more. I will update this information as soon as I get the tournament website up.
More details to come.
