HOTEL RESERVATIONS

Go to the Hotel Reservations tab to make your hotel reservations NOW!

To insure availability of rooms to everyone, we have expanded the number of rooms we are guaranteeing from 40 rooms/night to 60 rooms/night. While we have the ability to potentially increase availability of more rooms if needed, we need everyone to make their reservations now!

Think - while August is traditionally a slower month, we still have 2 things that are challenging us:
  • California Covid-19 Response: Many Californians have relocated to their second homes in Utah, so August, a normal slow time, is no longer that. Those homes have been removed from the rental market.
  • Capacity: We face two years of events trying to book into 1 years room capacity.
  • We Upped Our Committment: So I need your help to make sure we have adequate # of rooms for your classmates who are finally able to travel again.

BOOK NOW!

[THIS PART IS A REPEAT] THE ASK!

With the vaccine now starting to be distributed, our planned 2021 Mini Reunion is becoming a great opportunity for all to travel again! Park City, Utah and the attractive rates they have made available to us comes with some opportunities. Our website is up to date with Mini Reunion information. See www.westpoint72.com.  Registration for mini-reunion events should be available in the spring, but hotel registration is NOW OPEN!

To insure availability of rooms to everyone, we expanded the number of rooms we are guaranteeing from 40 rooms/night to 60 rooms/night. While we have the ability to potentially increase availability of more rooms if needed, we do need everyone to make their reservations NOW! Having the ability to expand may not be available to us for very long.

PLEASE BOOK YOUR LODGING NOW!  (Still a Good Idea. Can’t emphasize this enough!)

That way we may be able to expand the number of rooms to accommodate all. See room rates below:

Room Rates
Single Rate - Grand Summit Standard Guestroom - $159.00
Grand Summit Suite w/ One Bedroom - $184.00
Grand Summit Suite w/Two Bedroom - $244.00          [If one isn’t available when you call in, call Larry at 303-898-0595 and he see if he can get you one]
Three Bedroom Suites may be available, you will have to ask when you call in.
