Benefits of Stay and Play

Working Within Your Budget

  • It provides consistent, affordable group rates for everyone participating.
  • It guarantees the double/double rooms everyone wants.
  • It keeps teams together in one hotel, which in turn allows coaches the ability to hold team meetings or to contact individual team members or parents more easily.
  • It helps us hold the line on registration costs.
  • If for any reason, the event needs to be cancelled, there is full cancellation insurance; you will not be charged by the hotel (without this, hotels may add penalties to those who cancel a room reservation too close to their arrival.)
  • It offers a one-call process for making hotel reservations with an immediate confirmation system.
  • If at any point during your stay, you or anyone on your team experience unexpected problems regarding the hotel booking or reservations, you can contact our on-duty service center for prompt assistance.
  • Check-in is simplified because hotels will have a list of all registrants and coaches can be provided the list in advance as well.

How does our Stay and Play Work for your team?  

One coach or manager of each team needs to be designated as the liaison with Rated Travel. That person will be called to discuss the team’s needs. We can then agree upon a specific hotel where the team, coach, managers and additional families will stay. We will be able to provide you with your own custom link for registration and for individual members to RSVP.


There are several ways to navigate the city, including public transportation and transportation services such as taxis, rental cars, charter services and ride-hailing services such as Uber, Lyft, and zTrip.

The Valley Metro Light Rail runs from central Phoenix, through downtown, to Tempe and Mesa in the east. Stations are close by and run right by some of the area’s top attractions, such as the Heard Museum, Phoenix Art Museum, Arizona Science Center, Chase Field, Talking Stick Resort Arena, Arizona State University and more.

Stay & Play


Stay and Play allows us to negotiate collectively lower room rates for our blocks.


Hotels that are familiar with Stay and Play policies know that their block will fill up and are willing to work with Rated Travel to allocate rooms. This, in turn, produces more rooms closer to the tournament location and more rooms at a wider variety of hotels and price points.


Rated Travel is available on-site throughout check-in and will be available via phone for the entire duration of the event.


Shuttle Services/Rental Cars

SuperShuttle/ExecuCar is the preferred airport shuttle provider for the Phoenix area and the Greater Phoenix Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. As our way of welcoming the attendees of the 2018 Desert Super Cup, we would like to give your group online discounted transportation to and from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and the hotel or home they will be staying at during the event. The discount offer is inclusive of up to 10% off our SuperShuttle shared ride and our ExecuCar black sedan/SUV service which includes airport meet and greet service

In addition, we are also offering our Everyday Low Rates for All SuperShuttle fares to your host hotel, The Sheraton Crescent Hotel and all nearby hotels or homes. These new Everyday Low Rates offer up to 15% savings off of last year’s rates
