Event headquarters will be the Columbus Hilton Polaris, in Columbus.

The Columbus Hilton Polaris elevates luxury accommodation to a new level. A spacious guest room with granite countertops, soft earth tones and rich dark woods awaits your arrival at Hilton Columbus/Polaris. Stay comfortable with a 32-inch HDTV, mini-refrigerator and complimentary WiFi. Our convenient location and complimentary shuttle within a 5-mile radius makes it easy to get to Columbus attractions and the airport. Take time for the Papillon Day Spa, fitness center, indoor pool and whirlpool.

The Columbus Hilton Polaris is 20 minutes from the Concours at Brookside Country Club and about 60 minutes from the Mid-Ohio track. Our hotel will be the site for:

  • Registration
  • The Mercato di Ferrari and Welcome Party
  • The Concours and Coppa Seminars
  • The Cincinnati Gang Seminar and others TBA
  • Monday night reception and Mercato
  • The Gala Awards Banquet on Tuesday night

A block of rooms have been reserved for June 18, 2016 - June 22, 2016. Our block of special room rates is now sold-out. Just because we sold out of our favorably priced room block doesn’t mean you can't join us at the Hilton.  There are still a limited number of rooms available at the standard rate, but they are selling out fast.  Those rooms start at $214 per night with easy cancellation and $188 per night with advance purchase.  Please keep in mind if you use the advance purchase option, no changes can be made to the reservation and there are no refunds.   If you want to take the chance that someone will cancel their room before the event, Greg Ledet, our Hotel  Chair, is setting up a wait list for those that meet the following requirements:

  • For those of you that want to be added to the hotel wait list, you need to make your reservation using this reservation link. If you try to use an AARP rate code or AAA or any other type of discounted approach, it will remove the FERR16 group code from your reservation and you won’t appear in our group which makes it very difficult to move you into the block and off of the wait list.
  • You are registered for the event with an F1, F2, or F3 Package.
  • You send an email to 2016HotelChair@FCA2016.org with your name, hotel confirmation number, and date of event registration.

If someone cancels their reservation, Greg will do his best to move people on the wait list into the room block at the discounted rate on a first come, first serve basis.  There are no guarantees people on the wait list will be moved into the block.  Greg will also not be able to make any changes after April 18th.

Please note that the first night's room and tax deposit is due at booking. Cancellation is required 60-days prior to your scheduled arrival date (around April 19, 2016); after which time, any confirmed reservations will be fully guaranteed via additional deposit for the remaining balance of your full stay. Cancelling after this deadline is subject to forfeit of your entire deposit. This also means that confirming a reservation after April 19, 2016 will be fully prepaid at booking and non-cancellable.
