Hotels – two to choose from:

Instructions: A) When reserving a room at Red Roof Inn, be sure to request the “Palladium Books Group Rate.” At the Hampton Inn & Suites, you need the following 3-letter code: POH (Group Rate).

B) Make certain you request two beds if that is what you need. Otherwise you are likely to get one queen- or king-size bed. Important Note: Doubles (rooms with two beds) are limited at BOTH hotels! Order sooner than later.

C) Reserve your room now. Your card will NOT be charged until the date of the event, and you make sure you have your room held for you. HOTEL CANCELLATIONS: To avoid “cancellation fees” we recommend you cancel at least 3 days before the event (or as soon as you know you cannot make the POH). Note: Must RESERVE HOTEL ROOM by March 15, 2017 to guarantee a room and get the special Group Rates.

Want to stay a few extra days? The Red Roof Inn said they would extend the special rate of $49.95 to include one or more extra days for those of you who may be arriving a day or two early or staying a day after (Monday, April 23, checking out on Tuesday morning). POH Dates – April 19 for VIP Thursday. April 20-22, 2018 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). The Hampton Inn was not willing to extend this courtesy, though if enough people inquire, they might. It cannot hurt to ask.

1. Red Roof Inn

39700 Ann Arbor Rd
Plymouth, MI 48170
Request the “Palladium Books Group Rate.”

  • $49.95 plus tax per night for a double (2 beds).
  • $49.95 plus tax per night for a King (one large bed).

Note: The Red Roof Inn is a no frills hotel, hence the low nightly rate, in a nice, safe neighborhood right off the highway. Make sure you tell the hotel you want the “Palladium Books Group Rate” and request two double beds if that’s what you need. Located in Plymouth.

Location: It is only 3 miles away from the Palladium warehouse and near where the old hotel is located, off of Ann Arbor Road and I-275. Many places to eat nearby on Ann Arbor Road. We highly recommend a small family diner, Good Day Café restaurant on Hix Road (and half-way to Palladium) for a quick, tasty and inexpensive breakfast. Kathy and Kevin enjoy breakfast there often.

2. Hampton Inn and Suites

1950 N. Haggerty Road
Canton, MI 48187
Request the “POH” Group Rate.

  • $119.00 per night plus tax for “double Queen beds” (that’s two queen-sized beds!).
  • $129 per night for one “King Suite” – SUITE is the important part of this request – and it comes with one king bed and a pull out sofa, but PLEASE confirm that with the hotel.

Hampton Inn amenities include:

  • This is a more upscale hotel also in a nice part of town near Palladium Books.
  • Free hot breakfast offered daily, allowing guests to start their day off right without an additional charge.
  • Free high-speed and Wireless Internet access in the lobby and all guestrooms, allowing guests to stay connected to their friends and family while at the hotel.
  • Guests have the option to earn both HHonors points and airline miles.
  • Location: City of Canton. Most notable cross streets: Ford Road and I-275. Only 2 miles (3.2 km) away from the Palladium warehouse and near all kinds of places to eat down Ford Road, and an Ikea.

Airport Note: The hotels and Palladium’s warehouse are 15-20 minutes from Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) in Romulus, Michigan, near I-275. Detroit Metro is the airport you want to use.
