Below is all the hotel information.  We wanted to share some of the specifics for each hotel and the web links for booking.  We negotiated comps for a certain number of rooms booked to help pay for our Legends on tour with us.  Please know that by you staying at the official CIA tour hotel, you are helping us receive free room nights for the Legends.  It’s not a lot but every bit helps.  We also got them suite upgrades so they can experience our true hospitality!

One big perk that everyone will receive is Double Marriott Reward points (excluding NY & NJ) for their stay which can easily earn you free future stays.  See more on that at the bottom of this document.

Another big perk is that we have negotiated free internet for every guest at every hotel where it wasn’t free already (a $13/night value)!

Please note the cutoff date for each hotel, we cannot guarantee you rooms after that time.  Also, note that the sooner you book your room, the more likely you will be able to get the exact room type requested.  We are anticipating that all rooms will sell out, and doubles will sell out first!  If you have any issues getting the room or room type required, or if you need to arrive earlier or stay later than the dates we have allocated, please email at [email protected].

There will be a welcome reception at most hotels on the first or second date of the room block for those arriving early (extra incentive!).   Stay tuned for more information.

Also, we have arranged for free meeting space at each hotel for any last minute impromptu meetings or events that may come up.

Finally, it is imperative that all guests know and follow the summer tour twitter account or they may miss out!  You must be approved to follow this account so be patient after you make your request.  Also, you must be a current member of Chelsea in America to have access to this account.

We will dispatch detailed instructions on how to get important information to your twitter, phone (via text) or email soon.  We are not forcing anyone to open a twitter account and follow our account, but there is a great chance that you might miss out on some last minute surprises during the tour.

 With double Marriott rewards, you earn 20 points for every dollar you spend.  So if you stayed at all four cities you would earn nearly 40000 points which is enough for a free night at a category 8 hotel (their top level) or 5 nights at a category 3 hotel (using points savers and the redeem 4 nights get one free promotion).  You could stay 1 night free at any Marriott hotel in the world or you could stay 5 nights at cat 3 hotels like the Town Place Suites in Anaheim, the Courtyard in Cancun, the AC Hotel in Porto or the Marriott in Leicester!   You get the idea, over land and sea, wherever you may be!

If you are not already a Marriott Rewards Member and you are staying in any the cities besides New York, allow us to refer you before you sign up and you will receive an additional 8000 points.  Email [email protected] for your referral.  Try not to get a membership without a referral because you will just be throwing points away.

Also, with the summer stay promotion, for every two stays you will earn one free night at any Marriott hotel (category 1-4).  So if you stayed in 4 hotels, you would earn two free nights! Now you can stay in Porto free for a whole week (5 nights + 2 nights)!!  But you must sign up by the end of June.
