What We Do
Mark your Calendars AGAIN! Winter Flea hotel rooms for our THIRD hotel, the Hilton Garden Inn of Warwick, RI, go on sale Monday, October 2nd, 2017 at 9am!
Yes, it's true – we've added ANOTHER entire hotel. We know that the Crowne Plaza and the Holiday Inn Express aren't big enough to hold all of you, so we're buying out the Hilton Garden Inn as well – all 160 rooms will be ours.
It's located just a few blocks north along Jefferson Ave from the HIE – right across the street from the Transportation Hub building (connected to Green Airport, and with a commuter rail station, car rental center and local bus stop onsite).
If you weren't able to get a room at the Crowne or the Holiday Inn Express, but still wish to stay near the FFF, we sincerely request that you book your room at the HGI, rather than elsewhere in the area. We suggest this for three reasons:
1) The more rooms attendees book, the less NELA is responsible for. And, of course, we'd rather our FFF revenue go to our charitable works than to paying for unused hotel rooms.
2) NELA's chances of getting a good contract with the hotel next year are much better if we can sell the hotel out, and bring the hotel room and restaurant business – your buying power helps us get host hotels!
And 3) Filling hotels means we can get you a cheaper room rate (that's why we buy hotel rooms 'in bulk') – that's why you'll pay only $87 a night at the HGI while staying at a hotel rated just as highly as the Crowne Plaza (and, unlike other area hotels, with dedicated shuttle service around the clock to the Crowne).
Please mark your calendars for 9:00 am 10/2/17!
Please do not attempt to book a reservation before that time, as it will NOT process and/or be honored once the actual booking period begins.
