Read Reviews on The Westin via TripAdvisor The above six hotels are consistently the most popular among our audience for Tournament Week. If you book through the official CIAA Tournament Fan Portal, remember a few things that are new for 2017: – A Non-Refundable Deposit is charged at the time you book. If for any reason you cancel your trip, you won’t get your money back. When booking, they make sure you see that fine print clear. – Your reservation is non-transferrable. You cannot secure a room, and later transfer it in your friend’s name. If you book the room, it will remain in your name the entire trip. – Three night stay is required for all hotels. That is to be expected, but if you were coming into town Friday, you might want to consider grabbing the hotel for the night you aren’t there. The odds of finding a two night stay hotel in Uptown at the total price you are gonna pay for three is slim, and will get even tougher once we get into February.
