If roughing the weekend with a sleeping bag or inflatable mattress doesn’t sound like your thing, we recommend crashing at the Ann Arbor Marriott Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest hotel. The hotel is located approximately 20 minutes from DTW, and 10 minutes from the EMU Convocation Center. Gamers for Giving attendees can book through the provided link to receive a discounted rate @ $129 per night.
