Room rates are $99 plus tax and includes breakfast for up to two people per room per day and is good from September 11 - 20, 2017.

Our host hotel, the DoubleTree New Orleans Airport, is sold out and has no rooms currently available for Friday, September 15th and Saturday, September 16th. We have contracted with the Crowne Plaza Hotel New Orleans Airport as an overflow hotel. This hotel is located about two blocks away from the host hotel. See the following file for reservation information at the Crowne Plaza.

Crowne Plaza Hotel

To reserve a room, it is recommended that you call (800) 222-8733 and mention the booking code BGR.  This is the fastest and easiest way to reserve a room.  IF YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL REQUESTS (for example: a room close to the elevator, a room on a lower floor, refrigerator in your room, handicap accessible room or really any other special request) please call Jonathan Hurst at (504) 303-3010 between the hours of 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM CST, Monday – Friday.  About 80% of the rooms have refrigerators but if you need one, be sure to let them know.

Please reserve your room NO LATER THAN 3:00 PM CST, August 25, 2017.  Rooms may be reserved after that time at the group rate only if they’re available.  No guarantees are made after this cutoff time and date.  To insure that you get the room you want at the group rate, reserve before this time and date.  If a reservation is being made after 8/25/17, call Jonathan Hurst at (504) 303-3010.  Any reservation may be cancelled WITHOUT PENALTY if cancellation is made 72 hours or more from the check-in date.  If a reservation is cancelled less than 72 hours, one nights room rent will be charged.

Onsite parking is plentiful and free for our Reunion.

There is a free airport shuttle that runs to and from Louis Armstrong International Airport 24 hour a day. 

It is recommended that you reserve your room early.  We have a good sized room block but we ended up running out of rooms last year as too many people waited until close to the reunion time to book and no more rooms were available.  IF YOU BOOK A ROOM AND FIND LATER THAT YOU MUST CANCEL, YOU MAY DO SO WITH NO PENALTY UP TO 72 HOURS PRIOR TO ARRIVAL.  So please, PLEASE, book your room now so if we run out of rooms in the block again, there will be time to add more.
