Reservations for SLIG 2016 lodging will open tomorrow, July 11th, at 9:00 am (MDT).
Reservations for lodging at the Hilton SLC Center hotel will be taken via a new process this year. Utilizing a form created for UGA to process your requests, you will be able to place your reservation inside a group rooming list rather than make your reservation individually. And why, you ask, would you want to do that? To save exactly 12.6% or $16.88 per night in taxes normally charged on top of the nightly rate, making the Hilton group rate of $134 per night a true $134 per night.
A one-night's deposit will be required to reserve your room. While that is a new policy this year, it is not a new policy to groups using the Hilton; it was waived for our first year upon request. You may pay that deposit with a check, credit card, or your PayPal account upon making the reservation. The balance due will then be paid directly to the hotel using the credit card you provide upon check-in. Those wishing to pay the balance by check may do so, but with an earlier deadline.
The new system allows you to select your type of room, check-in and check-out dates, method of payment, list your roommate's names, log back in to update them at any time, add special requests to your reservation. The very thorough form was built for SLIG by EasyNetSites - we appreciate their cooperation in making this possible for our attendees!
The group rate is guaranteed until December 10, 2015, or until rooms are no longer available, whichever occurs first. And we all know how that works when space is limited, so reserve your room early to assure you have what you require.
