SW-VI Canada Hotel Reservations
Update Jan 13, 2016
Right now it looks like only smoking rooms are left available. We have 76 rooms booked, 16 beyond the original block, that is great and the host committee is very pleased with the response. I know there will be some attrition over the next few months, it is inevitable. The best made plans can change due to circumstances beyond our control. If you are planning on coming up, phone and make a reservation and get put on the list for non-smoking rooms. I will be looking into some other area hotel/motels to find us some overflow accommodation as well. I know there are some that may want to camp, there are a couple of campgrounds close by. This is in the Rocky Mountains where man is not the top of the food chain, bears are, grizzly bears specifically. So if you are going to be tent camping please be bear aware.
Stoney Nakoda Resort, 888-862-5632, press 1 for reservations and ask for the "Shark" group rate for your stay beginning either July 31 or Aug 1 to check out on Friday the 5th of August 2016. Rate is 104$ CDN/night for double occupancy. After you request the "Shark" Group rate you should be transferred to the Group Sales Manager, Vicki or the Catering Manager, Chris. Please be patient if they are not at their desk, leave a message or call back at another time. The front desk is aware of our group booking but there are several folks working several shifts that may not have gotten the memo yet. Other style rooms are available. We have a starting block size of 60 rooms.
IF After pressing 1 the phone rings 4 times then the front desk is busy. Hang up and try again on the toll free number between 08:00 and 16:00 MDT. After 4 rings it will remote forward to a Central Reservations System and those folks don't deal with group bookings. The 403 881 2830 number will result in toll charges for whomever uses it, just trying to save the memberships a few bucks by using the toll free number
All rooms qualifying for the rate need to be booked by June 1, 2016. Any un-booked rooms in the block will go back into the general availability for casino stay and play packages, golf packages, rafting packages and will be subject to regular rack rates as of this time.
Please pm me directly if any issues arise.
Rooms can be cancelled up to 48 hours before the day of arrival with no penalty incurred. ( i am checking to see if this is only for early arrival, and late checkout such as Saturday Aug 6th)
For any of you looking to tour a little longer in Canada, look into rooms in Jasper, Golden, Revelstoke and other Canadian destinations asap. The favorable exchange rate for Americans travelling to Canada is causing rooms for next year to book up early in several locations in the Rockies in Alberta and BC.
In another thread we will post up some ride maps for places to see before or After SW VI in Canada.
