FPN Partners with State of CT Convention & Sports Bureau For Tournament Hotels
FPN events are Stay-to-Play. All teams needing hotels must book their hotels through the Connecticut Convention & Sports Bureau website.
- We have agreed with our hotel partners to make all of out tournaments "STAY TO PLAY", as this allows them to block out sufficient rooms many months in advance and guarantee the lowest rates.
- Our hotel partners work with us to provide us the lowest group rates available at the time. If you find a lower group rate at our partner properties let us know.
- Without this partnership with the hotels and teams taking advantage of this process FPN would not be able to provide as high a quality tournament and all the amenities that go with it without significant increases in tournament fees.
If there is a hotel you want to use that does not appear in our inventory just let us know and the CTCSB will contact them to try to have them added. Fastpitch Nation and the Connecticut Convention & Sports Bureau (CTCSB) have worked hard with our hotel partners to provide teams with a great inventory of team-friendly and quality hotel properties all at excellent prices. Most properties include FREE breakfast FREE parking and a pool. Our hotel inventory has all the name brand hotels teams come to expect such as Hampton Inn, Hilton Garden Inn, Holiday Inn, Best Western, Marriott, Comfort Inn and more. There are no exceptions to this policy. Local teams are not obligated to use a hotel. But teams that are staying in hotels must use this system to book their room blocks with a minimum of 8 room nights per day booked required.
There is no opt-out provisions for regular tournaments. There is an Opt-out provision for USSSA Nationals only.
We have a dedicated resource at the Connecticut Convention & Sports Bureau to assist you regarding booking your rooms or anything related to hotels.
