Honolulu is a very busy place in June, and the Hawaiian hotel market does have certain
practices which are not common in other areas.
In order to make this as affordable and easy as possible for teams, there are certain policies
your team should know.
- Hotel rates posted are the best group rates available for any of the hotels listed.
- CSTT will only book into hotels teams that have QUALIFIED for the tournament. Each
State will be providing a list of teams as they qualify.
- Some State Associations have set aside blocks of rooms to accommodate their qualified
teams. Teams from those States are required to stay at those hotels.
- A number of the hotels require a deposit when the Rooming List is provided. Hotels with
such a policy will have information listed in the Details page for that hotel.
- CSTT will have the ability to book individuals into a hotel that is not where their team is
staying. If an individual prefers to stay at a different hotel due to budgetary or personal
taste considerations, CSTT will do our best to accommodate them.
