List of Hotels with 2023 FCCLA Blocks
Select your top choice based on which best meets your needs (bus parking, up to 6 in a room, short walk to VBCC, price, etc.). It is important to stay in these hotels since they support FCCLA by holding the rooms until our February 15 deadline.
Reservation forms are sent directly to the hotel, not to Virginia FCCLA. Each adviser is responsible for working with their selected hotel to meet payment deadlines with a credit card or school check.
