    Gameday arrangements

    Ben cannot attend the Colts game. Does anyone need a ticket? My seats are in Sec 306, Row 11, on the goal line on the Patriots side of the field. If you need it and want to be considered, it just email thru here.

    Here we go: Your group block has been setup in our system and below are the instructions to make reservations into the group block. Individuals will be responsible for making their own reservations. All reservations require a credit card at the time of booking. Guests can call the hotel directly at 781-769-7000 and choose option 2 for sales or option 0 for the front desk. They should mention the UK Patriots block. They can also book online at www.bostonnorwood.hamptoninn.com . Under "Add Special Rate Codes, they should enter your group booking code, which is UKP For all online reservations through our Hampton Inn Website the GROUP CODE is UKP. We always setup the group a couple of days prior to the actual dates, in case some guests want to come in early. There are no rooms blocked for those additional days however and the group rate may or may not apply for those days booked outside of the contracted dates. Any guests that need to stay outside of the group block dates should make their reservations directly with Sue in sales. Please let everyone know that they must make their reservations by the end of day September 8, 2018. On September 9, all rooms not booked in the block will drop back into hotel inventory and the group rate will no longer apply. From: Sue Gallogly Director of Sales Hampton Inn by Hilton Boston Norwood 434 Providence Highway Norwood, MA 02062 (781) 769-7000 I will be watching the list of reservations made so only the Roadtrippers will get the benefit of the group discount. Anyone not on Mandy's final list of approved applications will have their reservation deleted. Also please remember that if you need reservations for both games and you are not staying at the hotel between games, you must make 2 separate reservations.

    The agreement with the Hampton Inn has been finalized. In a few business days I will receive instructions for making reservations within the UKPatriots room block. I will post it here immediately upon receipt. The important points: 1) We have available rooms from 9/29 to 10/4 (beginning 10/5 the Hotel is already sold out to anther group). 2) We have double rooms (2 Queen Beds) at $159/night and single rooms (1 King Bed) @$149/night. A 11.7% tax is not included in the prices. 3) Reservations must be made by 9/8 at which time any unreserved rooms within the block will be returned by the hotel to their inventory of available rooms. 4) Reservations and payment are the responsibility of each individual. Sue Gallogly, Director of Sales at the Hampton Inn, is looking forward to meeting the UKPatriots. More information to follow.

    I'm getting Double Bed Rooms and Single Bed Rooms but I need to know asap if anyone aside from Jonas (already requested) needs a handicapped room. I should have more info by next week. 1) If anyone wants both games and will not be staying during the week they need 2 reservations. 2) Ther are no doubles available for Friday October 5th just in case anyone is interested.

    I heard from the Hampton Inn. We will have rooms from 9/29 to 10/5, both singles and doubles. We are getting a discount of 18% to $159/night on singles and 20% to $149/night on doubles. The only thing left is to get the number of rooms needed, which I will estimate based on Mandy's latest list. In case Warren is interested, any rooms not reserved by 9/8 go back to the hotel inventory. Once I get the contract signed, the hotel will set up the reservation info. All reservations are the responsibility of each individual. Sue at the Hampton Inn wants us there. More info to follow.

    Obviously I realize that. Once we get the rooms reserved and people begin to make reservations, the contract always has a cut-off date after which any unclaimed rooms will go back to the hotel. I will be speaking with the Hotel in the next few days at which time all options will be discussed. Control of the opening of the parking lots rests with the State Police. The lots usually open 4 hours prior to the game but I remember last year, at one of the late games the State Police opened the lots 5 hours before the game. Remember that Rt1 is a major thoroughfare for people living south of the stadium and there will be a lot more traffic than there would be on a Sunday.

    I'll be contacting the Hampton Inn this week. Since we have 2 games this year only 4 days apart, I'll hopefully be able to set up the contract so the reduced rate will carry thru the Friday after the Indy game for those who want to stay there for both games. I'll let everyone know what Darrell at the Hampton Inn offers me before any contract is signed and I will post it here.

    The contract with the Hampton Inn is signed, sealed and delivered. As soon as Darrell get everything loaded in their system and contacts me, I will let everyone know how to make reservations.

    I do have a contract in hand from Darrell at the Hamption Inn awaiting my signature. The contract provides for 3 rooms on Friday night and 10 rooms for Saturday and Sunday nights, all Double Queen Rooms. Before I sign off on it, I would like to know if any RTers need other accomodations and I will do my best to make that type of room is available. I'm going to increase the number of Double Queen Rooms to 15 with the understanding that any rooms not reserved by the cut-off date (10/25/17) will be released to the general inventory by the hotel. Once the contract is signed, I will be given a "Group Booking Code" to be used to make reservations either on-line or by phone. The hotel's website indicates that there are Single Queen Rooms and Single King Rooms and Accessable Rooms. Jonas - I will reserve an Accessible Room for you. Anyone in need of special accomodations please PM or email me ASAP. Additional information will follow in due course.
  15. I have looked at hotel costs. Preliminary cost of the Courtyard is $209 + taxes per night for 2 beds in a room. Darrell at the Hampton Inn is offering a definite $109 + taxes per night for 2 beds in a room. I don't see the Courtyard cutting the cost for me in half to match the Hampton Inn but I will see if the Courtyard will do so if the RTers want me to. That weekend is quite expensive for most hotels so the Hampton Inn is a complete surprise to me. Don't even bother to ask me the price of either hotel at Patriots Place. If you want to stay there you are on your own.
