DoubleTree by Hilton Miami Airport Convention Center
About the Hotel
The smoke-free hotel is located near the southwest corner of the Miami International Airport.
It has a beautiful lobby, swimming pool, an amazing ballroom and a connecting mall. Also, warm chocolate chip cookies can be requested at check-in!
We were able to secure the same room rate that we had for 2021, which is $124/night plus tax for a standard double-bed/king-bed room, and this rate is good for 3 days pre- and 3 days post-con. To get this special rate, you must reserve your room through the hotel link below and your reservation must be for at least 2 nights. It is possible to book a reservation for just 1 night, but you will be charged a higher rate that is set by the hotel. Rates are based on single/double occupancy and additional adults (up to 4 in a room) will be charged $15.00 per day per person plus tax. Check-in time is 4PM and check-out time is 12PM. Microwaves and refrigerators are available in the suite rooms. If you’ve booked a standard room, they are complimentary pending availability, but you have to request them either at check-in or contact the hotel directly to request them.
If you want to upgrade to a deluxe room or suite or have a special request, you will need to contact the hotel with group code “Dice Tower Retreat” by phone directly at 305-261-3800 or toll free at 1-888-353-1995, by faxing your reservation form at 305-260-8900 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can start booking your hotel rooms on March 23, 2022, at noon EST by clicking on the HOTEL link below.
Tickets for Dice Tower Retreat will be sold on Tabletop.Events (TTE). The ticket price is $150 plus TTE fees and you can buy up to 4 tickets with a single purchase. Tickets are limited to adults only age 18 and over.

These tickets can also be transferred to someone else coming to the Retreat until August 15, 2022. Please contact tom@dicetower to make the arrangements.
TTE will automatically add tickets back into the pool with each refund processed, making it available for someone else to purchase. With refunds, tickets can become available at any time.
For those of you flying into Miami International Airport, the DoubleTree offers a complimentary shuttle service that picks up passengers every half hour in the ground transportation area of each terminal. When you walk outside from baggage claim, head to the area for hotel shuttles and wait there for the next available shuttle. For more information on the hotel shuttle pick-up areas, click on this link on the link below.
For those driving to the event, daily and overnight parking is available across the street from the hotel. The lot is owned by a separate company and rates are subject to change without prior notice. Hotel guests will pay $10.00 per day and have 24-hour in-and-out privileges. Those not staying at the hotel will pay $7.00 to park, but this rate is PER ENTRANCE to the lot and DOES NOT include in-and-out privileges.
More information on parking passes for hotel guests will be available as we get closer to the event and will be posted here and on our booking site on Tabletop.Events.
The hotel has several restaurants and a few others in the connected mall. We will try highlighting some of the local places to eat and share them through the Facebook Retreat Group. Within a few blocks there are not many food options unfortunately. However, it is located in the center of Miami, so a short Uber ride can get you to hundreds of restaurants including delicious Cuban food in Little Havana! Also, for those who rather just eat in, there is Grubhub or Doordash.
Other Event Details
As always, this event is all about gaming. Once the library of over 2000 games is setup on Wednesday morning, we will open the ballroom for gaming. The library will be shutdown Sunday around 6PM and we will close the door to gaming at midnight. You can keep on gaming after 6 PM, but you’ll have to do it with your own games.
We also plan to have a game exchange, a Key Lime buffet, and possibly another event or two - but it’s simply going to be tons of games available for you, including the full Dice Tower Library, which keeps getting bigger every day.
At this time, we haven’t made any decisions about what precautions and safeguards we will implement for the Dice Tower Retreat. We are keeping up on the news about the Coronavirus and information released from the CDC and we will be working very closely with the DoubleTree and federal, state and local authorities to make sure that we do absolutely everything we possibly can to keep everyone safe. We will provide updates here, on our booking site on Tabletop.Events, and in our Facebook group as we make decisions about our policies.
The DoubleTree is committed to cleanliness and making your stay a smooth experience. Click here to see the DoubleTree’s travel guidelines and what you can expect at the hotel during your stay.
