Host Hotel

The Radisson Greystone at 83 East 120th (about 2.5 miles from the competition site) has given us a great rate for the competition. Mention Allegro Coffee when you make your reservation and you will get an $89/night rate that includes a complimentary breakfast. They will also have shuttles available to take you to and from the competition site.

What's the best way to get from the airport to the hotel? From what I remember, this new airport is considerably farther than Stapleton used to be. Is there rail or alternative to taxi and renting a car?

Unfortunately because of the location way outside the city there isn't a rail that runs to the airport quite yet. The Radisson has an airport shuttle that you can arrange with their front desk. Also there will be shuttles to and from the competition site from the Radisson and busses for the reception to and from the Radisson, so I recommend not renting a car and using those shuttles to save money and gas.

Now, the next question is how far is Salt Lake City? And is it within reasonable striking distance from Denver?

It's a full day's drive- just over 500 miles. If the weather is good it's not a bad drive, but there can be some really high winds through Wyoming that would make it awful.

I've done the drive before, so it's definitely within distance if you don't mind the long drive.
