2019 Host Hotel Room Codes

UPDATE: 3:05 PM CT — Rooms are still available at the Sheraton and Westin. The only room format not currently available is one-king rooms at Westin. King rooms at Sheraton, as well as two-bed rooms at either hotel are still available. At our latest check, there were also rooms still available at Harrah’s.

Update: Mon July 8, Noon CT
Host Hotel Link: Sheraton & Westin (Sun Sept 1 – Mon Sept 9)
Host Hotel Link: Harrah’s (Sun Sept 1 – Sun Sept 8)

Arriving earlier than Sun Sept 1? See below for more information.

One other note: The booking website for Sheraton and Westin lists two different distances to the airport. This is an error. The two hotels are across the street from each other, connected by an enclosed over-the-street walkway.

If you haven’t already done so, see read below for important tips in making your reservations.

MONDAY, JULY 8 — 3:00am CT

At noon CT on Mon July 8, NAGAAA will post the links to the host hotel group booking blocks. The links will be posted exclusively at myGSWS.com.

In the meantime, please read this important information to make your time a little more efficient later today.

Top Five Tips for Kansas City Host Hotel Info
Please read these important tips before attempting to make your reservations today.
Tip #1 -- Sheraton & Westin -- Two Hotels, One Link
Sheraton and Westin properties are owned by one company with a common reservations system. Therefore, the link we give you will list availability at BOTH hotels from the same link.
Tip #2 – Arriving Prior to Sunday? It’s Complicated
• If you’re planning to check into the Sheraton or Westin PRIOR to Sunday, we’ll be following a separate process for room-nights prior to Sunday.

• Our direct link allows you to book rooms directly with Sheraton and Westin from Sun Sept 1 through Mon Sept 9.

Step 1: Rooms Prior to Sept 1
To reserve rooms for Thurs Aug 29 through Sat Aug 31, complete this SurveyMonkey form and NAGAAA will coordinate your additional nights. Click here for reserve a room beginning one of these nights: Early Arrivals Registration.

Step 2: Rooms Sept 1 – Sept 9
Use the link we’re providing for direct access to the hotels

Tip #3 -- The Harrah's Room Block is Limited
• The number of rooms available in our block at Harrah’s is relatively small. We don’t expect to be able to add rooms to the official NAGAAA block after it’s filled.
• Dates outside of the NAGAAA room block (Sun Sept 1 – Sun Sept 8) must be handled directly with Harrah’s. The NAGAAA room rate will not apply for days outside of our official room block.
Tip #4 – Three or Four Guests In a Room? Please Read!
• The NAGAAA room rate INCLUDES up to four people per room for the “two-queens” room format — that’s great news!

• In our preparations with Sheraton and Westin last week, however, we discovered a bug in the reservation system, appearing to add fees for triple or quad occupancy. The website may be confusing…

The solution: Book your rooms as DOUBLE OCCUPANCY, even if three or four people will be staying there.

• Then, when you get to Kansas City, the front desks at Sheraton and Westin will work it out at no extra cost.

Tip #5 – Having Trouble? Contact Chris Balton
Past Commissioner Chris Balton is NAGAAA’s point of contact for all matters related to the host hotels. Feel free to contact him for escalations at pastcomm@nagaaasoftball.org or by text at (901) 301-7091.
