Default Hotel "chess rate" at U.S. Open

This year's U.S. Open will be held Aug. 3-15 at the Radisson Hotel at the Los
Angeles Airport (LAX), 6225 West Century Blvd. The advertised "chess rate" per
night is $89 (plus tax), which is touted as the lowest rate in the last three
years. Also listed is a $5 parking charge (per day) guaranteed, including
overflow if necessary.

For those budget-conscious players who are looking for much lower hotel/motel
rates in the LAX area, not too far from the Radisson, there are several places
where one can stay (based on availability) if one visits website
http://www.roomsaver.com or http://www.travelerdiscount.com and prints out
discount coupons.

Here's a sample of what is available:

$36 per night: Airport Park View Hotel, 3900 W. Century Blvd.
$45.95: Quality Inn Hotel Airport, 5249 W. Century Blvd.
$49.95: Travelodge at LAX, 5547 W. Century Blvd.
$54: Super 8, 9250 Airport Blvd. (one mile from LAX)

As you can see, one can save anywhere from $35 to $53 per night by staying at
one of these places, nearly all of which offer FREE PARKING and some offer free
continental breakfast.

Coupons are available if one prints them out from the websites. Anyone playing
in the entire 2-week-long Open can save a bundle of money if he is fortunate in
securing a room at any one of these places.

Or, go to Europe. Those who have to fly will most definitly save lots of money
by playing in Dortmund instead.

I doubt very much if those playing in Dortmund will save "lots of money" by

staying at the Holiday Inn in Dortmund, where the following "special chess
rates" have been secured by the tournament organizers:

Single room (with breakfast): 65 Euro ($74.82 US)
Double room (with breakfast): 75 Euro ($86.33 US)

The discounted hotel/motel rates at LAX, not the host hotel, are a better

bargain, but maybe not the tournament, which offers a $55,000 guaranteed
prize
fund but entry fees ranging from $185 to $220 (at site).

George Mirijanian


Right, the entry fee for Dortmund is 60 Euros ($69.09).

So you save at least $116 on the entry, and something substantial on the hotel
if you stay in the tourney hotel (it's also quite possible there are other
cheaper hotels in Dortmund, but I'm too lazy to look.)

I strongly suspect you could find just as good airfare to Frankfurt as you can
LA (I know I was able to do so from JFK). So yeah, it's cheaper and nicer. You
wanna be stuck in some airport hotel miles from the city or in the middle of a
city in Germany? Sloan or Kramnik? Your choice...
