We know it’s not even Labor Day 2015 yet, but this weekend marked the 180 day countdown until 2016 CIAA Weekend. Yes, 6 months from now, the biggest party weekend of the year will once again be going down in Charlotte. With the NBA All Star Game taking place in Toronto next February, many national partygoers/promoters are skipping Drake’s Valentines Day Weekend to focus on spending an extra day or two in Charlotte during tournament week.


Hotel rooms for CIAA weekend have not been released by many of the most popular annual destinations, but there are some early rooms available if you are looking to book your room early and spend the next six months focused on anything but where you will be laying your head. Check them out below.

With the recent increase in Uber drivers in Charlotte, the interest in staying further away from Uptown during tournament weekend is more attractive than years’ past. Even with surge pricing, you and your crew can get safely to and from the Epicentre to your affordable hotel room in the Airport or South Park area a lot cheaper than in 2014. The prices for the hotels listed below will likely go up as soon as people start booking rooms, so don’t hesitate on reserving if you are thinking about going next February.
