5. HOTEL RESERVATIONS:
You are not required to stay at the host pageant hotel. However, if you choose to, you and your guests have the opportunity to receive a special discounted rate on your hotel room during the state pageant. Wherever you decide to stay, WE RECOMMEND MAKING YOUR HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! It is not uncommon for other events and activities to take place in the host city/hotel as the pageant, which leads to hotels in the area selling out AND/OR increasing in price. In order to have the best opportunity at receiving the discounted rate at the host hotel, you will need to make your hotel reservations as soon as possible, and by the FINAL DEADLINE, at the latest date. National American Miss does NOT provide nor coordinate lodging for contestants and/or their families. In order to make your hotel reservation and receive the discounted rate, you can call the hotel directly and let them know you are with National American Miss. OR, an easier option, is to click the link below and book online. If you wait to make your hotel reservation until AFTER the Final Deadline, you will not be able to receive the discounted hotel rate AND you may/OR be unable to reserve a room at all, as the hotel could sell out.
