View Full Version : shuttle service for those at Wellsley

May 8th, 2006, 04:40 PM
I was wondering if anyone else got the phone call today about their reservations for Nationals being switched to a different hotel? I was supposed to be at the Wellsely now La Quinta Inn South but they say that the hotel is closed for renovation. I've been moved to the La Quinta Inn Deerfield! I'm not going to have a car and was relying on the shuttle to get to the pool. Anyone know what's going on? Will the shuttle go out there? Or am I out of lucl now?!

I called the meet host and he said that all those who have been displaced to the Deerfield Beach La Quinta and have already signed up for the shuttle should be fine. The hotel is responsible for providing this shuttle service and they have been contacted about it. I don't know any more details than that.

Thanks Jim. Kind of funny that I go to the forums page to get a response from a teammate. :)

Well at least I know now that you're at the Deerfield La Quinta. They haven't been able to tell me yet exactly who from our group is in which hotel because I guess about 1/4 of the original hotel is still open.

Well Amy too since she's in my room. Dana hadn't heard anything as of 4ish today. I'll update her later.

I just contacted the meet host. He is working with the hotel to determine who the effected swimmers are and make sure they are contacted. He is also working to ensure anyone who signed up for the shuttle is still going to have shuttle service. We should know more tomorrow about the status of all the swimmers at the hotel.

This is an unfortunate situation and the meet host is doing everything they can to take care of us.

I am staying at the LaQuinta Inn on University Dr. in Coral Springs. Is this the same hotel you are talking about? I have not received a phone call or anything about being moved. Should I be concerned?

Only part of the hotel is being remodeled. Many of the meet participants will not be affected.

Is the LaQuinta off 3701 N University Drive going to be impacted?

As it looks like on this forum it appears to only be the Wellsely now La Quinta Inn at 3100 N University Drive.
