Royal Dearborn Hotel (formerly the Adoba Dearborn Hotel)
600 Town Center Drive
Dearborn, MI 48126

Fifth Big House, fifth new venue. Growth has been incredible the past few years, and we’re happy to expand again. This year’s venue is one of the best you’ll ever see for a Smash tourney, and here’s why.

* 24,000 square feet of ballroom space. That’s over 3x as big as last year, and enough room for 2000+ attendees and 200+ setups.

* 2nd-biggest hotel in the entire state of Michigan, with a track record of hosting gaming conventions such as YoumaCon 2008 and 2009.

* Located only a few minutes from the Detroit Metro Airport, with inexpensive transportation options to and from.

* Discounted hotel room rate for TBH5 attendees. Stay inside the venue for the true national Smash tournament experience!



Parking is free right in front of the hotel. 1-minute walk into the venue!

If you are bringing a TV to the tourney, it must be dropped off at the loading dock behind the main ballroom. Hotel staff will NOT allow any TVs in through the front entrance. We will post a map illustration in the coming weeks.


The airport to fly into is Detroit Metro Airport (DTW) which is 15 miles away from the venue. You are responsible for arranging your own transportation from the airport to the venue.

UPDATE 9/25/15: We have worked out a deal with the nearby Extended Stay America to provide a free shuttle between DTW and the Royal Dearborn venue. See the shuttle flyer for details.


The Royal Dearborn Hotel (formerly the Adoba Dearborn Hotel) is your best housing option in order to stay inside the venue and connect with other Smashers at the special TBH5 room rate of $112/night. This is a big discount from their usual rate, and an especially great deal considering the quality of the hotel and convenience of staying inside the venue.

UPDATE 6/12/15: Because the venue is currently undergoing a re-branding to the Royal Dearborn Hotel name, there may occasionally be a few bugs on the website.
