Hotel & Travel

The host hotel for the 2020 Bayou Sales Challenge is the Hampton Inn & Suites located in Thibodaux, Louisiana.  The hotel is located 3 miles from campus (about a 10 minute drive), and parking is free.  There are several restaurants, a few coffee shops, and Wal-Mart nearby.  (See the Out & About in Thibodaux tab for more info.)


Sponsorships for the Bayou Sales Challenge cover the hotel costs (sans incidentals) for all competitors and one coach.  If a university wishes to bring a secondary and/or student coach, the cost is $25 per additional person.  The 2020 participating universities will have the nights of February 19th and 20th paid for.  The competition does not reimburse for mileage, gas, or flights.


Hotel reservations will be made by Annette Adams, Management and Marketing Department Secretary.  Students are paired according to gender, and students of the same university are usually paired together.


The collegiate social location will be announced soon!


Check-in is 3:00 PM and check-out time is 12:00 PM.  Here is the contact information for the Hampton Inn & Suites in case you have specific, hotel-centered questions:
