Again this year our event Hotel is the Renaissance Portsmouth-Norfolk Waterfront Hotel. This beautiful hotel is a perfect setting for our event even in the middle of Winter. Situated on the Portsmouth-Norfolk Harbor the view from outside the Ballroom Floor is simply amazing. When the weather is nice guests can walk a short distance to many of the great catch a pedestrian ferry that docks next to the hotel. This ferry will take you over to the Norfolk Waterside Festival marketplace where you can walk along the water or find more dining and tourist  adventures.

The Tidewater Chapter has negotiated a room rate during our event of $92/Night for a regular room. This cost is plus an approximate 14% Tax which will be added to your check out invoice. In order to obtain this rate when you call for reservations please tell the reservation clerk your are with "Tidewater USA Dance".  The phone number is 800-468-3571. The reservation clerks are contract employees and do not work directly for the Hotel. They are located all over the USA. If the person you are talking to does not seem to be taking care of your needs please hang up and try again.  Please do not call us as we cannot assist in obtaining a room.

New this year unfortunately is a parking cost for those driving in. The cost is $7.00 per day. This is for Valet parking. Self park also costs $7.00 but is not encouraged. Please note the following:
1 - If you are staying overnight at the Hotel the parking cost will be added to your bill.
2 - The $7.00 is for Valet Parking and includes as many in/out trips as you want during the day or night.

The City of Portsmouth has many other City owned self park garages within a several block distance. Most have free parking during the evening (after 7pm) plus free all weekends and maybe holidays. If you want to try this check out this link - City of Portsmouth Parking .

Again this year we have chose to use the buffet style of meal service. Last year there were only a very few glitches and we hope to have them solved for this year.
his year we will be offering a two (2) choice entree with an added option for those who are Vegetarian.

If you are please note this on your registration and follow up with us on arrival. If you are mailing in your registration there is a clear place to note your food requirements. If you are purchasing tickets on-line you need to add this information in the "note" box during your check out process. This "note" box is our main source to obtain your information. In either case we would appreciate a follow up email.
If you tell us you wish to only be served a Vegetarian entree it will come to you directly from the kitchen by the hotel staff. You will be able to go thru the serving line to select your salad and bread before being served your entree with sides. After your meal you can return to the serving line for dessert.

Those desiring Gluten Free food will also see that the hotel is providing more description tags in the serving line telling you which choices are gluten free.
We have also asked the hotel to be sure and replenish the food promptly when a selection is running low.
As last year the Coffee and Tea (Hot or Iced) will be located at a minimum of two stations along with the appropriate cups, utensils and supplies. Iced water only will be on your table when you find your seat.
