DOUBLETREE BY HILTON: 1521 W. Pinhook, Lafayette, LA 70503
All roommates must register and pay at the same time. No form will be processed nor any room assigned unless ALL roommates listed have registered together online or by hard copy.   Resident prices include hotel room and four meals (3 Sat, 1 Sun). Four options while space is available. All rooms have two double beds: 4/room, 3/room, 2/room or a single room. Note on form ONLY the names of roommates who are paying at the same time. We cannot guarantee adjoining rooms. If only one check sent, clearly list names of participants and their information. If one roommate cancels, others must arrange for a substitute within one week or pay for new type of room (i.e., if one woman in a triple cancels and no sub is found, the remaining roommates must pay for a double room.) Inform our office of any changes within one week of cancellation. If three women wish to room together, they may NOT request a quad room; they must pay for a triple. NOTE: Cancelled check is your receipt. Please take responsibility for paying balance BEFORE December 2, Noon or lose the $20 Early Bird price.
Requests made before December 2, Noon: full amount. After December 2, Noon: $65 fee. After Dec. 30, Noon:  no refunds due to our financial commitment to the hotel. In case of extreme circumstances (medical or weather-related) an appeal may be made in writing. Each situation will be considered individually. We cannot transfer payments from one retreat to another. Room change, made at our discretion, may incur a fee of $25 per change after December 2, Noon. No changes after registration closes Noon, Jan. 20.
