We have several nice hotels to choose from, all located within 10 minutes of the show site. In order to get these quoted rates, do not try to book online via hotel site directly or at any of the online booking sites like Expedia. The hotels will not guarantee these rates if you do. Online booking MUST be done through the links on this page to guarantee FCRSA special rates.
Dogs should be crated when you are out of the room, and there is a 4 dog limit per room. All have been kind enough to waive pet fees. Pet damages however, will be applied to your credit card on file. These room blocks will be available until March 25th, but we encourage you to book early as there will be an All-Breed Agility Trial following our event as well as other business and military events that take up hotel space.
