San Francisco NABC Reservations Now Open

San Francisco must be one of the most expensive cities to visit or live in in North America. The host hotel Marriott Marquis offers a buffet breakfast for $34; continental breakfast for $22.

The ACBL bridge rate is listed as Marriott Marquis $165 + tax 780 Mission St.San Francisco CA 94103

But when you click on regular member to reserve a room, you discover:

Marriott Marquis San Francisco $169

It also showed SOLD OUT for the night of Wednesday, November 27 when I arrive. So I called ONPEAK at 855-992-3353 and after a 5 minute wait, reached an agent. She confirmed that there was availability every night and the price was indeed $169 (not $165). With taxes that adds up to $196.49 US (for Canadians that is a whopping $264.97 CDN per night!).

For a couple playing in an NABC event add another $120 per day in entry fees ($161.30 CDN)

Total for one day and one night $316.49 US (food not included). That's $425.32 for Canadian folks.

I shudder to think what the entry fees will be in Canadian dollars when the ACBL goes to Montreal, Summer 2020. Or what the attendance will be.
