2019 REUNION IN NEW ORLEANS, LA 

June 10 - 14th

Four Points by Sheraton French Quarter

541 Bourbon Street

New Orleans, LA  70130

Howdy Shipmates,
 
I have succeeded in negotiating a contract with the Four Points by Sheraton French Quarter in New Orleans for June 10-14, 2019.  The rate is $99 and includes breakfast for two.  Parking is a premium all over town at $35-$49 night but I was able to obtain a discount of $20/night Valet parking at the hotel.  They will charge the fee to your room. You can examine the hotel by going to this link  
Four Points Sheraton French Quarter Website but use this special link to reserve your room.  Edisto Room Reservation


The hotel insisted that we have a 45 day cutoff date of April 26, 2019 so to guarantee a room with rate, you must make reservations before that date.   If you would like to arrive on Sunday, 9th June, you may do so and get the $99 rate.  Friday 14th is the normal checkout day.  Rates go up for weekend.  See below.


You may cancel 24 hours before arrival without penalty. Otherwise they will charge for one night.  Traditional rooms are those without balconies.  The latter are normally charged at a much higher rate but I was able to get discounted rates should anyone wish a room with a balcony.  Here are the breakdown on room rates:
Single:                                                                   $99 + tax       June 9-14   
Double                                                                  $99 + tax       June 9-14
Discounted Weekend rate (Fri & Sat)

Traditional Room                                                $149 + tax     
Balcony Courtyard                                              $159 + tax     
Balcony Toulouse Street                                    $189 + tax     
Balcony Bourbon Street                                     $209 + tax     

One thing we learned while in NOLA is that transportation to/from airport will cost $33-35 a couple for taxi and $15 for 3rd person.  It is estimated that roundtrip fare and tip will be about $80.  That is about the equivalent of the discounted fee for Valet parking at the hotel for the duration of the reunion.


If anyone is interested, a Gay Pride parade is scheduled for the weekend before the reunion.  I believe it is on the 7th June.
