We would remind all participating teams they are required to book accommodations with our sponsoring hotels, as Ringette Ontario has blocked sufficient rooms for all teams.
Team managers are to contact the Hotel of their choice directly and request a block of rooms for their team. Please do not block rooms at more than one Hotel as it will prevent other teams’ access to rooms. If the availability allows, you will be able to block more than 15 rooms at your hotel of choice. The majority of blocked rooms are 2 queen or double beds. You may request a suite, but pricing will be based upon size and availability and you would be advised to book at a hotel that lists it’s rooms as suites. Please note that downtown Ottawa hotels charge for parking but parking is included in hotels outside of the Ottawa downtown core. Some hotels include a buffet breakfast and some include a pool. Hotels are listed with their name, contact, cost, amenities and a link to view. Click on the hotel name to visit their website. All of the larger hotels are fully accessible, including some rooms with fully accessible washrooms.
- Blocking rooms – Team managers are to contact the listed Hotel contact at their Hotel of choice and request a block of rooms identifying their team & stating they are part of the Provincial “A” Ringette Championship Mar 18 – 22, 2020, to get the preferred group rate. The hotel will give the team manager a code or link to give to their families to book rooms directly with the hotel.
- Booking rooms – Families contact the hotel with the link or code given them by their manager to confirm their individual rooms on their credit cards. The room the family books is the room the family gets.
Rooms are blocked until Jan 18, 2020, any rooms not booked by this date will be returned to the hotels for resale, any rooms cancelled after this date will incur a cancellation penalty. Would remind everyone if they book for 4 nights and choose to leave on Saturday, early departure fees will apply.
- Opt out clause – teams have the option to opt of the hotel booking process but will incur a $1,000 opt out penalty for not supporting the sponsoring hotels. There is a wide variety of hotels with standard rooms and hotels with suites. Please do not double book, we will be tracking teams and you will be penalized for double booking. Most of these hotels are fully accessible, and include 1-3 fully accessible rooms.
