You all will have several options on hotels this year. There isn’t officially a “host hotel” so let me explain the 4 options to you all this way:
1 and 2 are closer to RPR, 3 and 4 are hotels you guys are all familiar with.
1. Hilton Houston NASA Clear Lake
This hotel is approximately 30 minutes (24.4 miles) from RPR and is a property that is on par with Omni Westchase and Marriott Westchase from last year. They will have onsite security and nice size parking. Booking cutoff is 2/15/17.
Address: 3000 NASA Road 1, Houston, TX 77058
Rates: 3/15-3/19 $135/night (of note we have 50 rooms/night but they will increase that block as rooms get booked until they are sold out).
Booking phone number and code: 281-333-9300 and group code is TX2K
2. Springhill Suites Baytown (Marriott Property)
This hotel is approximately 10 minutes (10.6 miles) from RPR and is much smaller than hotels from past events. It is located right off Interstate 10 and the biggest benefit is distance to RPR. Booking cutoff is 2/17/16.
Address: 5169 I-10 E, Baytown, TX 77521
Rates: 3/15-3/19 King Suite $99/night, Queen/Queen Suite $109/night (of note they only have 10 rooms 3/16, 25 rooms 3/17-3/19).
Booking phone number and code: 281-421-1200, code is TXKA for King Suite and code is TX2K Enterprises
3. Marriot Westchase, same hotel as last 2 years, large parking lot, lots of space, same part of town as you all are accustomed to. The hotel is approximately 48.4 miles from RPR, almost the same exact distance to RPR as to Lonestar Motorsports Park (last years venue – 48.1 miles from Marriott). The biggest difference is that you’ll have to go through Houston which may cause slight delay but very similar distance wise. Total travel time should be under 1 hour each way.
Address: 2900 Briarpark, Houston, TX 77042
Rates: 3/15-3/19 $105/night (of note we have 150 rooms/night but they will increase that block as rooms get booked).
Booking phone number and code: 800-452-5110 and code is TX2K17
4. Omni Hotel, this is the former host hotel, lots of people still prefer staying here, large parking lot, lots of space, same part of town as you all are accustomed to. Like with the Marriott the distance from Omni to RPR isn’t much different than the distance from Omni to Lonestar.
Address: 13210 Katy Freeway, Houston, TX 77079
Rates: 3/16-3/20 $09-129/night depending on which night you book (of note we 15 rooms the first night and 30 each night after).
Booking phone number and code: 800-THE-OMNI and code is TX 2K17
