Players will pay $29 plus tax to the hotel from Sunday night through Thursday night and $65 on Friday when prices go
way up in all of Vegas. In addition players will pay a one-time cost of $60 ($12 a day) to an ACF representative to pay for our playing room. Two persons to a room are allowed at the $29 p.t. rate. Family & friends of checkers will pay only $29 plus tax from Sunday through Thursday and $65 p.t. on Friday & Saturday. The rate of $29 p.t. for visitors also includes two persons to a room. $15 extra is charged for each person beyond two to a room. Please note that the Plaza hotel does not accept Saturday arrivals on the 21st, but visitors wanting to arrive early at the Plaza may come Friday the 20th with weekend room rates of $65 plus tax.

We highly recommend that reservations be made as early as possible since rooms are limited at that price. It takes a one-day deposit to hold your room. You
may cancel your reservation and get your deposit back if you notify the hotel in advance.

Make sure that you mention that you'll be there for the Checkers Championship to get the special rate. Let's make this one of the biggest tournaments ever in order to show the Las Vegas hotels that it's worth it to have checker tournaments there! The number for reservations is 1-800-634-6575. The Plaza is a great hotel in a great location. It has a swimming pool, tennis courts, and plenty of restaurants that cater to all tastes. Food is very reasonable also. Any questions, call Gerry Lopez at (951) 695-2499.
