5 Last Minute Tournament Week Hotel Options With less than eight weeks to go until 2016 CIAA Weekend in Charlotte, there are still many hotel and lodging options available in Uptown. Whether you decide to book directly through the conference, go through a third party travel agent, or use an alternative route like renting a house from an owner, here are some of the most updated deals available for the last minute travel planner, i.e. you. Fully furnished Uptown Condo – $67/night We found this deal via HomeAway.com, where the advertised location (715 N. Church St) is walking distance or an uber ride to the Epicentre, Time Warner Arena, and other hot spots for the week. Doubletree by Hilton – $259/night A long-time favorite for out of town travelers for tournament week, this Doubletree is located on 895 W. Trade Street, just blocks from all the action. There are all sorts of upgrades available through Hilton.com, but these rooms will likely be gone by MLK day. Charlotte Marriott SouthPark – $199/night If you and your crew are cool with staying away from the city center, the Charlotte Marriott offers up excellent accommodations while being footsteps from the most popular mall in the city (SouthPark Mall). The Ballantyne Hotel – $359/night Looking to party all night and be pampered in luxury during the day? The most popular four star hotel in Charlotte is roughly 20 minutes from Uptown, and features a spa and indoor pool that some A-listers indulge in every year during tournament week.
