2009 Cross Nationals - Never too Early to Reserve Hotel Rooms
As everyone knows by now the 2009 National Championships will be in Bend Oregon next December. The Bend Chamber anticipates that rooms throughout Bend and the surrounding area will be 100% booked for the national championships.
I don't want to get stuck without a place to stay so I've already looked at the various hotel properties available in Bend and have found a perfect location that's an easy ride to the course and is convenient to dining, shopping and all the other services racers need. It's called Shilo Inns Suites Hotels.
Here's a link to the Bend location that allow you to take a virtual tour:
