July 8, 2017 Update

You can still book rooms at the hotels with our group discount; However the cut-off for guaranteed availability was 7/7, which was also the last day that to book online with our direct discount link.

To reserve your rooms with our group pricing, you need to call and mention "Central Mass Skate Festival" - see the hotel options and phone #s below.

ACT FAST, since rooms in our block are now released to the public and will sell out!
