Will the ECS be getting a group discount on a hotel downtown for this game? I think there was one for SJ last year but I didnt know how that was decided. Thanks for any info that can be provided

From another away trip thread, which BTW is the best place to ask travel-related questions:
BlueEyedBuddhist wrote:I'd always suggest grabbing a decent hotel reservation if/when you see one. Don't do the pre-paid option, but if you find a rate you can live with and can reserve for free, do it.

As a general rule, figure on ECS not doing a rate on hotels. It adds a layer of complexity to the travel monkeys' job that we don't really need.

When we're calling for tickets to the game, there's just one person to call. When we go to set up a bus (for the few trips we do bus transport for), there's maybe 2 or 3 companies to call.

When trying to set up a hotel, there's dozens to call and try, and a lot of back-and-forth as the rate is negotiated... which makes for a lot more work than most of the monkeys have time for.

So- don't plan on a hotel being part of a group trip until one is actually announced. Grab one on your own. Just figure on game tickets and prefunk being what the monkeys will do for sure.

This isn't a travel question. She asking if there will be a hotel for the home match.

Oh my bad. I didn't even look at the date.

So wait...we had a hotel deal for a home game last year? I don't recall that.

I thought so, seems like it was the SJ game. I could be wrong though.
