    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:

    http://www.hiexpress.com/hotels/us/e...?groupCode=PTA

    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.

    For all those that are planning to attend in April I would book your hotel room today. I have already gotten a couple of calls from people saying hotels in the area are starting to fill up becaues of other events that weekend.

    I'd walk there just for the Jason Aldean concert. Hopefully there are plenty of dirt roads.

    The hotel listed on the thread (Holiday Inn Express) is already completely booked.

    So where is the next best (and closest) city to stay in? On Expedia.com, ALL ROOMS ARE BOOKED. Any suggestions by anyone?
