  • See our recap of last years event!

Immediate Requests:

Please note that the tournament hotel typically sells out VERY quickly - please reserve your room ASAP!
  • Hilton Hotel SF in Chinatown
  • Special DB Rate = $129 per night (2 double or 1 king) + 14% tax
    • Added charge of $25 per person per night applied for 3rd & 4th person per guest room
    • Rates valid Oct 1 through Oct 7
  • To book your room - 2 options:
    • If you know who you will be rooming with (if anyone), go ahead and BOOK ROOM YOURSELF ASAP:
    • If you would like help finding some roommates (no worries):
      • Let me (Wade) know ASAP:
        • What days you plan to need lodging for
        • What time you plan on arriving
        • How many preferred roommates (note $25 stated charge for 3rd & 4th roommates)
        • Other preferences (gender, good cuddle buddies, etc)
      • I will then have one of you reserve the room for the group of roommates via the link above
  • Free Bus Shuttle to/from tourney site, both days - no car necessary for the tourney.

  • Book your flights ASAP to ensure a good rate.
  • You can choose to fly into either SFO or Oakland Airports.
    • SFO (~14 miles away) tends to be more convenient & popular as there is less traffic to/from hotel.
  • Hilton does not offer airport shuttles, but still plenty of options to get to/from hotel & airport:
    • BART - (Hilton is a 10 minute walk from Montgomery Station exit)
    • SuperShuttle
    • Taxi
    • Limo Service (surprisingly comparable rate to a taxi according to race organizers)
    • Teleportation!

More info to come later - but for now, get your travel & lodging plans set!
