Please reserve your room using our group rate

Please help the Rocky Mountain Chapter contain the costs of our Symposium by staying in rooms from our block at:

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel – Westminster
8773 Yates Drive, Westminster, CO 80031-3680

The Rocky Mountain Chapter is required to pay to the DoubleTree hotel a penalty for non-used rooms in the RMAVS block. Failure to meet our requirements could noticeably increase the cost of putting on our event.

Group Rate $125 Available Tuesday Sept 12 – Friday Sept 15

Rooms from the room block are a good deal. The Rocky Mountain Chapter room rate is $125, much reduced over the comparable room/rate available from the hotel’s website of $147 (as of January 2023).
