Making Reservations
Make your reservations directly with the hotel of your choice for the Regional Championship. Room blocks have been reserved at the locations listed below for Thursday through Saturday nights, November 13-14, 2015. Please note that each hotel offers a complimentary continental breakfast.

When you call the hotel:

  1. Use the specified Group Code or Name below when making your reservation to ensure you get the group discounted rate.
  2. Provide the hotel with a credit card number. All hotels will require this to hold your reservation and as a guarantee against lost items or damages.
  3. Provide the hotel with a list of those staying in the rooms. Hotels will provide copies of rooming lists to Texas BEST. Failure to submit rooming lists by stated deadlines will likely result in cancellation of room reservations, with penalty fees applied.

Please be considerate of the needs of other teams and book only the number of rooms your team is expected to use. Drop any unneeded rooms before the deadline so that others have the availability they need at the event rate. If the following hotels are sold out, please refer to list of additional hotels affiliated with UT Dallas.
