Southern Division CBDNA/NBA Conference Hotel

Columbus Marriott
800 Front Avenue
Columbus, GA 31901
Telephone: 706-324-1800
Special Rate: $125 plus tax per night
Rooms in Block: 100
Cut-off date: February 6, 2008
Rhonda DePratt, Director of Corporate Sales

This property is literally right across the street from the RiverCenter for the Performing Arts where all of the conference activities will take place. In addition, this is a very nice hotel and you will enjoy your stay! This block of rooms is also available to book performing bands, but there are more affordable options below since you will probably have your own bus transportation to and from the RiverCenter. However, feel free to book here if you like! This is the place to be if you can get in!

All hotels below require transportation to and from the RiverCenter. Some of these hotels have limited free shuttle service (van) around town.

Four Points by Sheraton
5351 Sidney Simons Boulevard
Columbus, GA 31904
Telephone: 706-327-6868
Special Rate: $95 plus tax per night
Rooms in Block: 60
Cut-off date: January 27, 2008
Declan Burton, Sales Manager

This hotel is a little older, but remains nice. It is located within walking distance to several restaurants and some shopping (on both sides). The value and location make this a very good selection. Allow 20 min. drive to RiverCenter.


Courtyard Columbus
3501 Courtyard Way
Columbus, GA 31909
Telephone: 706-323-2323
Special Rate: $89 plus tax per night
Rooms in Block: 30 Doubles / 30 Kings w. pullout
Cut-off date: January 27, 2008
Tammy Weldon, Sales Manager

This hotel is near CSU’s main campus, but a good 25 min. drive to the RiverCenter. A mall (with all the normal shops including food court) is located across the parking lot from this hotel. Other restaurants are also within easy walking distance. Not a new property, but very well kept and updated.


Fairfield Inn
4510 E. Armour Road
Columbus, GA 31904
Telephone: 706-317-3600
Special Rate: $89 (for this insured rate, must book before Dec. 31, 2007)
Rooms in Block: 25
Cut-off date: January 27, 2008
Gayle H. Toth, General Manager/Sales

This property is rather new, very nice, and not near anything to speak of – so a bus (or transportation) is absolutely required. Allow 25 min. to RiverCenter. The hotel is only a couple of years old and touring high school bands as well as a touring college band have stayed here – and enjoyed it. It is a 5 min. drive to Peachtree Mall.


Hampton Inn (Harmony Place)
5585 Whitesville Road
Columbus, GA 31904
Telephone: 706-576-5303
Special Rate: $99 plus tax per night
Rooms in Block: 45 (30 Doubles, 15 King Singles)
Cut-off date: February 13, 2008
Dana Elliott, Director of Sales

Also a little older, this is a nice hotel with great walking access to a nice shopping area with restaurants. The location is only a couple of blocks away from the Four Points Sheraton above. This is the hotel that the Marine Band and Army Band select when they come through on tour. The only drawback to this hotel is that the rooms open to the outside – uncommon for a Hampton. So, perhaps better suited for visiting college bands rather than high school bands. Allow 20 min. drive to RiverCenter.


Wingate Inn
1711 Rollins Way
Columbus, GA 31904
Telephone: 706-225-1003
Special Rate: $114 plus tax per night
Rooms in Block: 20 Doubles / 5 Singles
Cut-off date: February 5, 2008
Marilyn Rivera, Regional Director of Sales & Marketing

This is near plenty of restaurants and a little shopping – plus a movie theatre & “play” area with miniature golf, skating, etc. in walking distance. This is a new property, so the hotel is nice and clean. Allow 20 min. to drive to RiverCenter.


Holiday Inn Express (Hotel & Suites) at Northlake
7336 Bear Lane
Columbus, GA 31909
Telephone: 706-507-7200
Special Rate: $114 plus tax per night
Rooms in Block: 20 Doubles / 5 Singles
Cut-off date: February 5, 2008
Marilyn Rivera, Regional Director of Sales & Marketing

Very new property that looks very nice inside and out. It is located in a developing area with a few restaurants and very quick access to the bypass (which will be necessary to get to the RiverCenter). Allow 20 min. to get to RiverCenter. Very close to Hampton Inn North Columbus and the Residence Inn Marriott. All of the great shopping, movie theater, and restaurants around the Residence Inn Marriott are only a 5 to10 min. drive (depending on traffic) from this hotel.


Hampton Inn Columbus – North
7390 Bear Lane
Columbus, GA 31909
Telephone: 706-256-2222
Special Rate: $109 plus tax per night
Rooms in Block: 25
Cut-off date: January 27, 2008

This property is rather new and nice. It is located next to the HolidayInn Express and everything about location written above applies to this hotel as well.


Holiday Inn (Columbus North)
2800 Manchester Expressway
Columbus, GA 31904
Telephone: 706-323-4989
Special Rate: $79 plus tax per night
Rooms in Block: 40
Cut-off date: January 27, 2008
Renee Scurry, Sales Manager

This is an older property and not so impressive from the outside. The inside is nice and Columbus State uses the property often to house folks coming in for conferences, workshops, sporting events, etc. It is located between the Fairfield Inn and the Courtyard Marriott. So, it is very near Peachtree Mall, restaurants, etc. Allow 25 min. to RiverCenter.


Country Inns & Suites
1720 Fountain Court
Columbus, GA 31904
Telephone: 706-660-1880
Special Rate: $95 plus tax per night
Rooms in Block: 22 Doubles, 2 Singles
Cut-off date: January 27, 2008
H.S. Guron, General Manager

This is a newer property. Located on the outskirts of town on I-185, it is a perfect jump onto I-185 for 5 min. drive to shopping center with loads of restaurants (Columbus Crossing), and just a couple of minutes to the by-pass which takes you to uptown Columbus (RiverCenter). Allow 25 min. to RiverCenter. Next to the Microtel.
