Cedar City, UT 84720. Rooms with two double beds are $49. Rate
will apply after deadline if rooms are available, but CUTOFF DATE
FOR GUARANTEED AVAILABILITY IS OCTOBER 15. Tourism is the chief
money-maker in Red Rock country, so the hotels tend to fill fast.
Phone number for the hotel is (801) 586-9900. The name of the
person in charge is "Doris" in case whomever you get on the phone
doesn't know about the block. Identify SUU speech and debate
tournament when you reserve. Nice hotel. Good "Sizzler"
