I'm not sure on the airport, but believe Norfolk is the closest and is maybe @ half an hour away.

Red Roof Inn is a football field length from the conference center and is inexpensive. They give a discount to AZ Billiards peeps.

I think it is a Red Roof Inn (?) that is right across the street from the Convention Center, they are reasonable.

Another vote for the red roof!

Richmond airport is about 90min away by car, if it is cheaper.

If I may make a suggestion to you. It may be a good idea to actually get a rental car from the airport. My reasoning is that you will want to go to Q-Masters during the off time of the tournament. Q-masters is about 4.5 miles away from the Convention Center and cabs aren't too cheap in the Norfolk area so it may be cheaper just to get the rental.

I was at Q-masters last month and I could have sworn I had someone tell me that they actually run a shuttle 24hrs a day from the convention center to Q-Masters, but I am not sure on that or if the shuttle was just for the players in the tournament.

Hope someone on AZB could clarify the shuttle for you and me, it may save you some cash on a rental car.

Have Fun.

They used to run that shuttle but no more unless it has restarted.

Check with Q-Masters.
