List of Hotels with 2023 FCCLA Blocks (updated 2/16/23)
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.
