Informal Poll: Hotel for Rocketts Landing Tri (Richmond)
POSTED: 6/21/11 9:26 AM

Hey all--

I'm researching a block of hotels in Richmond for Rockett's Landing. It turns out packet pickup is on SATURDAY, July 23, and transition closes at 6:45 AM on race day (July 24th), so driving down on the same day might not be a feasible option for most.

Let me know if you're interested in a DC Tri hotel block so I can get a sense of how many rooms we'd need.

Also: let me know if you're interested in a pre-race team dinner.

Thanks!

Abby

Absolutely.

(Perhaps the historic Jefferson Hotel downtown, a bargain at just $615 per person a night?...)

Same, interested in pre race dinner.

There is a block of rooms at the host hotel at a $99/night rate, expires this Thursday though. That's where I booked my reservation ...

Phone: 1-877-782-9444
Rate: $99/night
Expires: June 23, 2011
Contact: Reservations may be made by calling Hilton Garden Inn’s toll free reservation number above and requesting the "Richmond Multisports Block". Reservations may also be made on-line by visiting www.richmonddowntown.hgi.com and entering “RMS" in the “Group/Convention Code” box.

Yep, I saw that there are currently rooms at the HGI, but they may run out; and if we have enough people interested (which it looks like we do), we can qualify for a group rate elsewhere.

I will make some calls this afternoon and let you know what I find out!

Bottom's Up! gets voted best pizza in town every year. It's right downtown in Shockoe Bottom (used to live right down the street from there).

If you're looking to do a pre-race dinner for the club, it may be worth checking out.

Matt, thanks for the suggestion! Looks like Bottom's Up might be a great spot. It's not a terrible walk from the hotels, and their menu is fairly large to accommodate a variety of pre-race diets, including pizza, burgers, pasta and salads.

I am running it past a couple of folks on the board and will post finalized plans soon!

I'm still investigating hotel options, for those following this thread.

Okay, haha. Turns out there is a giant national Jehovah's Witness convention in Richmond that weekend that has booked up a lot of the hotels in the area.

I'm working with the Hilton Garden Inn on a special rate and room block for our club specifically. The Richmond Multisports Block is already oversold.

Stay tuned!

Hi all--please respond!

Hilton Garden Inn can hold 8 "queen-queens" for us at the rate of $99 per night. Parking, taxes, and breakfast are extra.

Let me know if this works or if I should find another option.

Thanks,
Abby
