Grande Ball Hotel Information

For those who are NOT staying at the hotel there will be a changing room for women.

For those who are staying at the hotel:

University Plaza's check in time is at 3PM. If you arrive earlier than that and they have the room open you can go ahead and check in.

University Plaza's time of departure is noon. If needed, you can call the front desk and ask them to extend the departure time to 2PM. They will do this without an additional fee.

When making  your reservation, please tell them that you are with the "Fourth Missouri's Grande Ball" to get your room rate at $89. If they don't recongnize that, tell them the "Civil War Era Ball" for March 12, 2011. If they still have a problem, email or call me and I will get it straightened out. I have already lowered the rate of one person's room.
