    Hotel Information

    Holiday Inn Express
    513 W. Broad Street
    Athens, GA. 30601
    Phone: 706-546-8122

    I was able to get a block of rooms for a rate of $82 a night + tax for Friday & Saturday. You need to call the hotel and ask for the Pokémon rate which is coded as PTA or use this link to make your reservations:

    This hotel is a half a mile from the Classic Center.
    Reservations must be made by March 10th to receive discount rate. After that date reservations will be taken on a space available basis. Make sure to make your reservations sooner than later as there are a lot of events going on that weekend.
    Hotel is planning on letting us use one of their smaller Event Rooms Friday & Saturday night for an Open Gaming area.
