Houston Dash Premier Cup has partnered with Pse Event Housing to provide attendees/groups with the best available hotel rates and smooth booking experience.

Our event is a “Stay to Play” event:  A good working relationship with hotels is critical for the long-term success of our event. For this reason, teams or attendees who are traveling from out of town are required to book their rooms through our Official Travel Partner, Pse Event Housing, to ensure that our room blocks are utilized. In short, since the hotels are holding rooms for our event, we must use these rooms.

The best hotels will book up quickly so please book well in advance.
