We have negotiated special hotel rates for chess families at $119/night, w. 50% discounted resort fee for a total of $151.98/night incl. all taxes and fees.


This is a great offer for a double-queen accommodation on a prime tourist location, and we expect rooms to go fast. If you plan to participate, please do not delay your registration.


Hotel offers complementary Wi-Fi, shuttles to Sea World and Universal and up to 4 Water Park Passes per day per room


Some potential participants expressed concern about apparently poor reviews of the hotel rooms. We were assured by hotel management that our group rooms are in the Hotel tower which has the best rooms. We went to the hotel to personally inspect the rooms - no worries! They look exactly like the photo, nice and clean.
