It’s a WIN for everyone!
When you book your room in the official housing block, the event producer is able to prove to the city the economic impact they are contributing to the area. This in turn helps the event producer secure the best dates in the best locations, and assists in providing local discounts for you. This economic proof also allows the housing company access to LARGER BLOCKS IN THE MOST PRIME HOTELS — so that we have the best options for you!

What is Stay to Play?
Stay-to-Play means that in order to participate in the tournament or event, teams and athletes must stay in one of the official hotels set up by the official housing company. All reservations must be made through the designated reservation portal and must appear on the official rooming list and final compliancy report.
The Benefits of Stay to Play
The event producer is able to prove the economic impact they bring to the city. As an event producer, the first step to ensuring a successful event year after year is showing a host city that you are a good partner. With a Stay-to-Play tournament, all room nights are able to be tracked and reported to the city, proving the tournament’s economic impact via hotel stays as well as restaurant and attraction traffic.
There are a number of reasons this could affect you as a parent or coach, if the rooms are not tracked properly. Here are a few:
MORE ROOMS FOR TOURNAMENT PARTICIPANTS. A hotel is far more willing to set aside a block of rooms for a tournament – even at a group rate – if they know the tournament is Stay-to-Play and can provide records of the pickup from previous years. Because of Stay-to-Play policies, hotels are more confident that the rooms will be sold. When hotels are more confident that the rooms will be sold, they are much more likely to contract larger blocks at the most desirable properties. In addition, we are able to work with all hotels to make sure their rates are in line with one another and appropriate for the location and time of year for the event.
GUARANTEED ROOM TYPES. The room rate contracted GUARANTEES the room type you reserve. You will not book a double room and arrive to find that only king rooms are available.
THERE IS A HIGHER LIKELIHOOD THAT YOUR TEAM/PROGRAM WILL BE ABLE TO STAY IN THE SAME HOTEL. With larger blocks, there is a much better chance that we will be able to keep your group together, which in turn allows coaches the ability to hold team meetings or to contact individual team members or parents more easily.
IT PROVIDES CONSISTENT, AFFORDABLE GROUP RATES FOR EVERYONE PARTICIPATING. Hotel rates in general have increased since 2013 (according to www.statista.com). From year to year, a Stay-to-Play event will see hotel rates increase at approximately 50% the normal percentage increase. TTS contracts room blocks at confirmed, non-variable rates. There will be no movement in room rates based on supply and demand, regardless if you book several months in advance or much closer to the needed dates, as long as you do book in the contracted room blocks. The consumer is GUARANTEED THE LOWEST POSSIBLE GROUP RATE over the event dates.
