Hotel Information:

Nationals this year is at Voice of America Park in West Chester, OH, on November 18th. The folks at Nationals have contracted with a third party, Event Management, to block local hotel rooms for the race attendees at a reduced rate. You can follow the Hotel Info link on the Nationals website (link below) and book any hotel you like. Several families are staying at the Hampton Inn… additionally, Accelerators have a block of 30 rooms at Holiday Inn Express which is less than 5 miles from the race site. 
It’s super fun for the kids when they’re with their friends in one hotel…and fun for the parents as well!
