USSSA World Series Brings Demand Of Over 16,000 Hotel Rooms

Posted: Updated:

WICOMICO CO., Md - The business that the United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) world series brings to shops and restaurants is just the beginning.

The tournament reportedly brings a demand of 16,000 room nights to the Eastern Shore, making most of the hotels in Wicomico County full, with at least an eighth of the bookings spilling over into the Ocean City area.

"It's huge, one of the biggest events of the years and it constantly books us every year," says Peter Palverento, front office manager at the Hampton Inn. "It's very big."

The Hampton Inn in Salisbury is one of the many host hotels for the world series. Palverento says they prepare by ordering more supplies, and make sure that they have extra people at the desk, in housekeeping, and just extra bodies in general to help out. Last year, they had about 300 guests, and they expect even more this year.

"All total throughout the county, we have 2500 hotel rooms sold, and they're actually spreading into Ocean City," says Palverento. "At this hotel in Salisbury we have approximately 400, about 100 guest rooms and about 4 people in a room."
