RNC Announces Georgia Hotel Assignment for 2012 National Convention

The Republican National Convention Committee on Arrangements announced the hotel assignments for the 2012 GOP National Convention.

Georgia and its 76 delegates will be housed at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay.

The Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay is located sixteen minutes from the Tampa Bay Times Forum, where most convention activities are scheduled to take place.

Republican National Convention Chief Executive Officer William Harris noted that convention organizers will charter 300 buses to shuttle delegates, alternate delegates, the media and other guests from their respective hotels to the Tampa Bay Times Forum, where the convention will take place, and to the Tampa Convention Center, which will serve as the workspace for the 15,000 media members expected to cover the event.

"We thank the Tampa Bay hospitality industry for working so closely with us to make the convention a success, and especially those facilities that were selected to accommodate our 56 delegations," Harris added.
