Helpful Lodging Tips
- Make your reservations early.
- Provide a valid credit card to the hotel reservations to hold your room reservation.
- Contact the hotel directly to cancel your room reservation if you should decide on alternate accommodations or if you choose to not participate. Please note many hotels require a 30-day cancellation notice, unless a room has been confirmed to an individual credit card. When a room is confirmed, cancellation is possible much closer to the reservation date. World T.E.A.M. is not responsible for canceling reservations or paying for rooms reserved by a rider.
- ADA compliant rooms may not be booked by calling the hotels or by booking online. These rooms have been reserved for Face of America and reservations for adaptive athletes are made through direct consultation with the World T.E.A.M. adaptive lodging coordinator.
