Traveling from distant lands to attend Gamers for Giving and looking for a place to crash? Fear not, road warrior. A few options exist.
If you’re looking for a hotel room, we’ve managed to secure discounted nightly rates with the Fairfield Inn & Suites Detroit Canton. Attendees can receive special pricing by calling the hotel directly (734 844 0088) and mentioning they are with Gamers Outreach. The hotel is located approximately 15 minutes from DTW, and 20 minutes from the EMU Convocation Center.
Many hotels throughout Ann Arbor / Ypsilanti are booked (or are posting abnormally high rates) this year due to a graduation ceremony at the University of Michigan. If the Fairfield Inn & Suites Detroit Canton isn’t a fit for you, we’d recommend expanding the scope of your search to other hotels throughout the Canton / Detroit regions.
For those of you who want to maximize your gaming time: the Gamers for Giving venue will be open throughout the night, and attendees are welcome to stay at the facility. Many attendees bring sleeping bags, inflatable mattresses, or construct forts beneath their LAN seats and camp out within the arena. But if that doesn’t sound like your thing, we’d definitely recommend giving the hotel above a call!
We’re looking forward to seeing you all on April 28th & 29th at the EMU Convocation Center!
