The 2018 Eastern Tandem Rally will be held in Williamsburg, VA, in the heart of Virginia’s Historic Triangle. Our headquarters will be the Williamsburg Woodlands Hotel, one of the hotels owned and operated by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. The hotel is adjacent to the Colonial Williamsburg Visitor Center, and is within walking distance of the Colonial Williamsburg Historic Area and the adjacent downtown commercial area at Merchants Square and adjacent to the College of William and Mary.


We have reserved a block of 80 rooms for the Rally for the nights of Friday, June 15 and Saturday, June 16. The number of rooms can be expanded based on demand, and attendance at the Rally is limited to 120 teams. The room rate for our block of rooms is $140 plus tax. You can extend your stay at the block rate for three days before and three days after the Rally, but room availability outside of the block is limited. The easiest way to make your reservation is through this online link: WILLIAMSBURG WOODLANDS RESERVATIONS.
