Venue

Edward Hotel & Convention Center (formerly the Royal Dearborn Hotel)
600 Town Center Drive
Dearborn, MI 48126

For the first time in six years, we have the luxury of staying at the same venue as last year. Don’t worry, we have an extra ballroom now, so it’s still a major increase in space! The Edward Hotel & Convention Center is one of the best venues you’ll ever see for a Smash tourney, and here’s why.

* 35,000 square feet of space across three ballrooms. That’s enough room for 3000+ attendees and 300+ setups.

* 2nd-biggest hotel in the state of Michigan, with a track record of hosting gaming conventions such as YoumaCon and TBH5.

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

* Discounted hotel room rate for TBH6 attendees. Stay inside the venue for the true national Smash tournament experience!

Travel

IF YOU ARE DRIVING IN:

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.

IF YOU ARE FLYING IN:

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.
