Hotel Stay: Our event location is at the Hotel Parq Central. I love this location because they repurposed a hospital originally built to serve the railroad. It's small, comfortable, with a lot of gathering spaces that have a ton of natural lighting. You can find more about the hotel here.
Choices for rooms:
I’ve reserved the Hotel Parq Central residence building.
If you want more privacy, this separate building will be just the place. There are only nine rooms, so the first nine individuals or couples will get a great deal.
Rooms in the residence building will need to be reserved by contacting me first, then the hotel.
To reserve: You can send me an email with dates and details at [email protected]
or once you register for the event I'll send you an email with my phone number and other contact information.
