    Doubletree didn't have mini fridges in the rooms. Just in case you wanted to know.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    I was there and I though the shuttle was very good. A bit of a wait in the dark cold after the events, but nothing unbearable.

    Their accomodation site is up on the website for any who want to start reserving rooms. My email from the 2015 committee also states in order to use the shuttles from each of the official hotels, you must have a room and book through the housing bureau.
    All three hotels are just down High Point Road from the Coliseum Complex, site of the 2015 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. The Coliseum Complex will be easily accessible from the hotels via a continuous shuttle bus that will run throughout Championships week. Shuttle passes will only be available for purchase by those staying at Official hotels and booking through the event's Housing Bureau. Guests will be notified of the ability to purchase shuttle passes in a subsequent newsletter

    I just called the new Hampton Inn mentioned in the email. They do have mini refrigerators in each room.

    Copying over these recent posts from the dual 2015 Greensboro/2016 St. Paul Nationals thread (I think it's time to separate the 2 planning discussions?):

    Local Greensboro article about the 2015 Greensboro LOC hoping to utilize a similar marketing strategy as the U.S. Open men's & women's golf tournaments in Pinehurst did this year: http://www.news-record.com/news/loca...7a43b2370.html
    So the USGA made a special effort to market the Open to golfers within a three-hour drive of Pinehurst — people who could make a day-trip or two, Aznaborian says.

    That’s a strategy Greensboro will use for figure skating, said Hill Carrow, chairman of North Carolina 2015, the local organizing committee.

    “You’re advertising in a number of markets,” Carrow said. “Part of the approach is trying to get sponsoring companies from more urban markets: Charlotte, the Triangle and the Triad. It expands your marketing and promotional footprint.
    ...
    “The U.S. Open is an event like ours that has a national following,” Carrow said. “You’ve got a hard-core group of fans that’s going to come from across the country and even from other countries to see your event.

    "But I’ll tell you what: Without your local market supporting it — and in this case the market is the state of North Carolina — without that, you’re not going to be successful.

    “It’s the same with us. We’ve already sold tickets in Brazil and Canada and Japan. But if we don’t get the core region of the Carolinas and southern Virginia, we won’t be successful.”
    (Wow, Brazil?!)

    I booked my hotel. (Marriott by the airport at $85 a night) and my flight using my FF miles. It is going to have to be just championship weekend this year
