**Due to limited room availability at St. John’s Resort (conference venue), we have reserved an additional block of rooms for participants at the Hilton Garden Inn. The Hilton Garden Inn is located 1 mile from St. John’s Resort and guests will have access to a limited shuttle service from the Hilton to St. John’s August 25th-27th. Accommodations at the Hilton include the hotel’s American Breakfast Buffet.
Breakfast with the NCSC group is also available at St. John’s Resort Friday through Sunday. Tickets will be available when you register.
To stay onsite at St. John’s Resort, please register for the conference FIRST. You’ll receive the booking link (with our group rate) in your confirmation email. Website will be updated when St. John’s block is full.
JUNE 1st update: St. John’s block is almost full. Register now to get the booking link. Once the block is full you can still continue to check for rooms as the conference approaches in case some come available due to cancellations. You can also join a waiting list which will be posted shortly. In the meantime, we recommend booking a room at the Hilton Garden Inn, in case a room doesn’t come available. (If you have trouble booking your preferred room type (queen or king) for the nights you need, please call the hotel directly.)
Come early or stay late to sight see and enjoy some of the local activities! Get to know fellow attendees during the pre/post events! Special room rates are available 3 days before and after the conference. If you need to cancel your room, please cancel 72 hours ahead of time to avoid being charged for it.
Visit our Sharing Rides and Rooms page and post there to arrange with other attendees to share a room. ALSO, once you register for the conference you will be given access to a Google spreadsheet which you can also use to arrange rides from the airport and room-sharing with other registered participants.
Besides the great rate, you benefit from:
Guests usually remember to tip the bell person or the concierge because they come face-to-face with these service providers. Many forget about one of the hardest working groups in the hotel industry: the housekeeper. Housekeepers are often women and work for low wages. The American Hotel & Lodging Association suggests leaving housekeepers $1 to $5 per day (on the higher end for luxury properties), and urges guests to tip every day, not just at the end of the stay. This is because different housekeepers might take care of the room on different days during the guest’s stay.
