I’d rather hear from someone that went this year or knows Detroit.  I don’t trust those sites.  I’ve been burned. 

That's a bummer.  No issues with all the times I've used the site and I start with the lowest prices and work from there.  But, haven't stayed in any cities with a history.

No more CYO for now?

Not this year. I think they were hoping for a later season show to celebrate the 80th year in style with a spectacular line up, or at least that was what was hinted at last year’s CYO Nationals Tribute. The East Coast Classic will be an enjoyable show and the 80th will be celebrated in style. I like BC Stadium, but I always enjoy the late July/early August show. It could return but my guess is the New England shows are not attracting large enough crowds

DCI has yet to go public with the '19 stats for paid attendance there and at Regionals and Indy last year. All we know "officially" is that the theater audience of Detroit was huge.

Allentown looked good, especially friday

What hotel(s) are within walking distance of Ford Field in Detroit?  I already booked St.Louis.  Just trying to to get ahead of this.  Thanks! 

Greektown Casino would be the closest.

As a former Detroiter, I'd consider staying in Windsor and taking the Tunnel Bus.

Best Western Plus Waterfront Hotel
277 Riverside Dr W, Windsor, Ontario N9A 5K4, Canada

Just realized that the Cadets got placed on Friday night of Allentown. Weird, but OK...

Battalion is not listed in the Open lineup (nor World Prelims) posted on dci.org.  One other big corps missing from World Prelims is Blue Devils B.  They are shown in Open Championships.

It's unfortunate BD is denying their B corps the additional performance opportunities, and also the fans will miss them for Prelims and (likely) Semis.

It is likely that DCI's website is just screwed up. Both DCI and Battalion have announced that Battalion will be in Indianapolis this year. Kidsgrove Scouts aren't listed for any shows either even though DCI and Kidgrove have announced a 2020 DCI Tour. Beeches isn't listed for Indy either even though they've previously announced their participation. Many shows are still TBD. I choose to believe the announcements from individual corps and DCI's news articles then a half finished schedule.

Sources:

But this year, a new face joins the ranks of those competing for glory in the Hoosier State. In 2020, The Battalion — based out of Salt Lake City and founded in 2016 — will perform at the DCI World Championships for the very first time.

The Utah corps has rapidly improved over its first four years, both in terms of score — its final tally has increased by more than 30 points in just four seasons — and in terms of organizational prowess, having extended its tour schedule from five events in 2016 to 11 in 2019.

Once events in Marion conclude, the DCI World Championships will be held at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis for the 12th-straight season. Three days of competition featuring more than 40 World and Open Class corps will be the capstone series of the 2020 DCI Tour.

The 2020 DCI World Championship lineup will also feature two corps competing in the International Class ranks for the first time ever. British powerhouses Kidsgrove Scouts and Beeches Performance Ensemble will both be coming to the United States for a brief stint of performances, concluding in Indianapolis.
