Team Rooms

A limited amount of team rooms are available. Please contact Luis Salinas  or Barbara Swafford if you are interested in purchasing one for your school or club.

What are team rooms and why should you consider purchasing one?

Team rooms are used as a central base of operations for a team. This is useful as your kids will not be running around the hotel but will be in one central location when they are done with their games. It is easier to keep track of the team's players and to make sure that the players do not get lost or in trouble. A team room allow for a coach or hired instructor to more easily go over the student's games without other players or teams interrupting or scouting.

Team rooms also allow for one or two responsible individuals to watch over and care for whole team. Outside food is usually not allowed, but sometimes the hotels have a contract with certain pizza places and will allow pizzas to be delivered. I will post more information about this as it becomes available. Generally the hotel provides water stations for the team rooms.  If internet access is required, there will be an extra charge.

Where are the team rooms located?  The team rooms are located on the 3rd floor of the Hilton Americas Hotel. The main tournament playing areas are on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors.

Are table and chairs included in the room?  Yes table and chairs are included, note that the hotel uses most of the tables for the playing area, so you may have to get two x18" tables to make a table. Or if the hotel runs short, they may put cocktail rounds. These hold one chess set. Hotels also like giving round tables for the parents. Please let me know your requirements and we will do our best.
