Hotels – SIS 2024

NOTE - I have obtained room blocks at 2 hotels in the area … BUT … Since the event is not being held at one particular hotel, you may choose to stay anywhere you wish. I suggest looking at one of these sites like, Expedia, Kayak, etc., etc. to see what deals are out there. Some of those sites have room rates advertised that are lower than some I was looking to get a block at.
Also, due to the current hotel shortage in the area (Lost 1500 rooms in the area since 2020), and the downtime created by the 2020 lockdown, nearly every hotel in the area has been renovated and/or is now in the process of renovation. Even hotels usually considered “Lower End” are now much higher in quality.

If you do not have your own transportation & will need a ride back & forth to the hall, please stay at either LaQuinta or the Double Tree. They are about 150 yards apart on the same side of Ella Grasso Tnpk. Also, If the room type you are requesting through the online link says not available … just call the hotel. They are both flexible on changing my allotment.

Note – The Hampton Inn is sold out.

I also looked at, but did not get blocks at for various reasons. Also, they often show different rates on different booking sites. This was the primary issue with getting a block. You can get them cheaper online than the block price they were offering.
