Focus Rising 2015 Official Hotel Announcement!
Radisson Hotel Harrisburg
1150 Camp Hill Bypass Camp Hill PA 17011
Hotel: 717-763-7117

This year we decided to pick the Radisson Hotel in Harrisburg. This puts us about 20 minutes away from the Fairgrounds, which is further than normal, but we feel this was the best deal for everyone. It offers a HUGE parking lot that will allow us all to be in 1 location, as well as plenty of parking for Trucks/Trailers. The Details for the rooms/hotels are as follows:

*Room Rate is $114 a night. This rate is in line with the rates from 09-13, but the quality of Hotel/Room/Space is MUCH better than previous years. And once it’s split with multiple people, it’s still affordable!
*50 Rooms will be held (a mix of Doubles and King Beds)
*Each person will have to call in to reserve their room with a credit card
*Reservations will be accepted until 05/05/15.
*Check in time is 3:00 PM
*Check out time is 11:00 AM
*Radisson will provide one complimentary meeting room
*Complimentary Car Washing Station area in the 1100's
*The hotel will cone off the entire middle row of parking spots
The Merkur Club of America and Shelby Enthusiasts also stay at this hotel, so you know good car enthusiast groups use this hotel. *When you call and book your room, please remember to mention Focus Rising so you can make sure you get the club rate!!! We look forward to seeing you there!
