anybody know of any hotels that are close to this show?

The show application on Bev's site lists about 4 hotels close to the area. The Hotel where some of the check-in events are being held is the Embassy Suites which is going for pretty steep at $269/nt last time I did a quick web check.

I stayed at another hotel which is slipping my mind right now but they were super strict about a little ProTan being on the grout in the bathroom & charged my CC $50 off the bat. The charge later came off but I felt like I had committed a crime!!! :nuts:

Bring a dark sheet set w/ pillowcase where ever you go!!!!

Does the Embassy have a group rate set up for us? I looked on the app and didn't see anything, and called the reservations folks to look up "NPC" or "Team Universe", and no luck in their system for a group rate.

Does anyone know if there is a group rate set up? Thanks! :)

angeliquecosta
08-05-2009, 02:07 AM
No, I'm pretty sure since the Embassy Suites is not considered the 'Host Hotel' they will not have a rate. Maybe we can call and inquire how many guests would be required to qualify for a group rate & then get a Sioux Country rate... what do you ladies think? I would need a rough idea of how many ladies are thinking of going so I can inquire.

I am going to be staying at The Hotel 91 (www.thehotel91.com) and they have fantastic rates. I think it's only a couple "NY" blocks from the location.

I am going to be staying at The Hotel 91 (www.thehotel91.com) and they have fantastic rates. I think it's only a couple "NY" blocks from the location.

THAT was VERY helpful of you to post that; that's $600 total difference for 3 nights between the Embassy and what's left at the hotel91. I am getting about $1100 for the Embassy and the rate for the Hotel91 is $500 (I rounded both up and included taxes).

I mapped the venue and the Hotel 91. Straight-line distance is about ONE MILE. That's close.

Check this map out.

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=199+Chambers+Street+%23S110c%0D%0ANew+York, +NY+10007&sourceid=ie8-activity&hl=en (ok, so click on the addy on the left; it's not quite as easy to just link you to exactly what I saw); after you click on the addy shown on that page, zoom out one click and you'll find that the venue is on the upper left with the red balloon; the hotel is east southeast(right) and basically right where the labeled 'Eldridge Street Synagogue' is located.

Both rates I quoted are for 2 beds. The ones left in the Hotel 91 are Queen; the ones at the Embassy are Full (smaller than Hotel 91).

Again, thanks!

I'd be all over a group rate, but getting everyone together to respond might be hard. Maybe just find out a minimum number that could qualify for a group rate?

I just called Embassy Suites:

TO qualify for a group rate we need a peak day which in this case would most likely be Saturday night where 10 rooms are booked. It does not matter the other days how many rooms are booked just one peak day must have 10 rooms. The sales manager will be e-mailing me a group rate quote tomorrow. I will post it here and we can determine if you think its worth it to pursue this avenue. :)

Here is the latest news from my venture with Embassy Suites:


I understand you are interested in a block of rooms at the Embassy Suites for September 17-20, 2009. It is my pleasure to offer availability at $279 run of house. With this rate all guests will receive a spacious two room suite, complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast daily, and access to New York Sports Club, our on-site fitness facility.

What do you ladies think? For 3 nights it is around $950 ish... still too steep? keep looking? Comments / Suggestions?

Keep scouring the discount sites like hotels.com , hotwire, & travelocity since hotels sometimes release more rooms as the bookings fill up. I snagged The Hotel 91 off of hotels.com yesterday when we all thought they were sold out. So keep your eyes peeled!!!

I am still willing to assist with Embassy if anyone is interested. It just was not in my budget. :(

I can't wait to meet you ladies! Hotel 91 crew...let's see if we can meet in the lobby on Friday at some point!

I booked at the Best Western Seaport Inn Downtown. They have gov't rates in addition to AAA and others. I got $100 discount/night because I am a teacher, and therefore a gov't employee!!!! It is only about a mile from the Tribeca.

Ok, here's the official word on the new category.

If you enter Master's, it is an ADDITIONAL $100

So if you want to enter in Figure and you also want to do Master's Figure, you would send $200 (they can be combined in one payment).

If you ALREADY SENT YOUR FORM IN:

Then go back and print off another figure form. You are just adding the master's entry with this form. WRITE ON THE TOP "Master's Entry Addition-- I have already sent in a Figure Entry form" Then send it in with $100.

If you DID NOT YET SEND ANY ENTRY FORM IN:

Then just print the Figure form off and write across the top "I am also entering the Master's division". You would send $200.

They intended to have a new form available where you could mark off master's. I did not see any difference yet in the forms, so I let them know and they will look into it. For now, just use the same Figure form that is available and make sure you write across the top.

Make sure you give yourself extra travel time. That location isn't bad...you'll be taking a cab around the southern tip of Manhattan. It's a short trip. BUT you never know how traffic will be. I think it'll be smooth sailing on Saturday morning. Just give yourself a little more time for your weigh-in and to go back for the night show on Sat.

Thought this might be worth mentioning. If you join AAA for $64 a year the room rate if you book from the AAA website offers a room for $265.05 per night instead of 329.00 as advertised through Embassy Suites. Plus AAA offers savings on airport parking at about a 15 % discount. Since we all travel soooo much, you will save alot at hotels throughout the year. Well worth it and it took only about 5 minutes to join.

They usually sell out the night show. You should either pre-order, or pick up tickets for finals when you come in for pre-judging.

NPC News Photo Shoot Info For Sunday, Sept. 20

After years of trying to photograph out on the streets or in Battery Park, each time getting chased away by either the N.Y.P.D. or the Battery Park Police, I have secured a conference room to shoot the NPC News photos for this contest at The Embassy Suites Hotel, 102 North End Avenue, New York, New York, 10282, Tel: 1-212-945-0100, website: http://embassysuites1.hilton.com/en_US/es/hotel/NYCNYES-Embassy-Suites-New-York-New-York/index.do

Due to the large number of competitors I need to photograph along with what happened last year where we basically did a hit & run photo shoot with the Figure & Fitness class winners at a location that I just was not satisfied with, I felt this was the best option. I apologize for the late notice, but it took awhile to coordinate this as The Embassy Suites was unsure what the photo shoot would all entail & I had to educate them a little bit before getting approval.

Here is what I have put together for everybody;

NOTICE TO ALL 2009 NPC TEAM UNIVERSE & NATIONAL FITNESS CHAMPIONSHIPS COMPETITORS

The Following Athlete’s Are Required To Participate In The NPC NEWS Photo Shoot With J.M. Manion On Sunday, September 20 At The Embassy Suites New York Hotel From 8:30 a.m. To Approximately 1 p.m.;

● MEN’S OVERALL WINNER
● WOMEN’S BODYBUILDING OVERALL WINNER
● MASTERS FIGURE OVERALL WINNER
● THE 3 FITNESS HEIGHT CLASS WINNERS
● THE 6 FIGURE HEIGHT CLASS WINNERS
● THE 6 BIKINI HEIGHT CLASS WINNERS

I Have Secured A Conference Room To Do The Scheduled Photo Shoots At The Embassy Suites. Please Look On The Hotel Schedule For The NPC News Magazine Room & Report There.

Only The 6 Overall Winners Are To Bring Their Overall Trophies.

The Men’s & Women’s Bodybuilding Overall Winners Are To Bring Their Posing Suit & Posing Oil.

The Bikini, Figure & Fitness Winners Are To Bring Their 2-Piece Competition Suits Along With At Least 1 Other 2-Piece Bikini.

(There May Also Be An Opportunity To Do Individual Photo Shoots For The NPC News So The More Bikini’s Brought The Better.)

Tentative Schedule As Follows;

8:30 a.m. - Photograph The NPC News Cover Featuring The 6 Overall Winners Only (Men’s & Women’s Bodybuilding; Bikini; Fitness; Open & Masters Figure)
Immediately Following Will Be Individual Photos Of The Men’s & Women’s Bodybuilding Overall Winners

9:30 a.m. - Arrival Of All Other Open Figure Class Winners Only For Group Photos. Masters Figure Overall Winner To Stay For This Portion

10:15 a.m. - Arrival Of All Other Fitness Class Winners Only For Group Photos

10:45 a.m. - Arrival Of All Other Bikini Class Winners Only For Group Photos

I'm going to give it my best, I have a athletic hernia so it's really going to depend on if I can just take the pain and go with it.... it's up in the air but either way I'm competing. Here is a pic I took the other night...

I think if you can get through practices, you can get through the performance. Will you cross over and do both fitness and figure? Or are you just shooting for one at this point?

Your physique looks to be strong, if your routine is equally strong it may be worth competing in fitness.

You can no longer compete in two divisions at the National level.

I did routine today but without tumbling and it felt fine... but tumbling is also how I injured it so I'm a little gun shy to try.

Doctor said "wait until the next show" of coarse!! He said if I damage it more really all that will happen is more internal bleeding which will cause a big bruise basically oh yeah and ALOT of pain.

Mike Davies says go for it (better odds).... I think that's what I might just do.

Really????

From the NPC site........

An athlete may qualify in any division – bodybuilding, fitness, figure and in 2009 bikini however when they enter a national contest they must select one division as a competitor. IF they qualify in more than one division they must select only one division – no crossovershttp://www.npcnewsonline.com/new/2009BOGMeeting.html

I received a couple emails this week regarding the cross-overs and double checked on it.

Figure competitors can compete in both the open and the master's figure.

Fitness can NOT cross-over into figure like they did last year. This rule was adopted last year at the NPC Nationals meeting and implemented this year.

See yall in NYC!

Thank you for clarification! I TOO paid and was hoping to crossover fitness/figure....So hopefully I'll get a few bucks back, even though it was my fault due to lack-o-rule reading. Try getting ahold of Steve W. though....Man is impossible to reach!!!

I JUST sent my entry in yesterday, because of what happened last year I wanted to be damned sure I was going... but sent it overnight guaranteed certified and all that, with a very hefty late fee :-( but wondered... does Steve W. e-mail you upon receipt or do I just fly there and hope my mail successfully beat me there and was processed and all that good stuff? Never done a national or an out of state show before so a bit anxious... and excited :-)
