Hotel Conference Rate “Cut-off”

Note that the “cut-off” date to guarantee the conference rate for hotel reservations is October 22 November 12. Booking a room by the cutoff date DOES NOT guarantee you a room. The block can, and usually does, sell out weeks before the cut-off date. BOOK EARLY!

Important Booking Reminders


  • You must book directly with the hotel, NOT through a travel site such as Orbitz or Travelocity, to receive the free Internet access.
  • The October 22 cut-off date is not a guarantee that there will be rooms available. We suggest you book your room by the beginning of October.


Booking by Phone

If booking by phone you must mention that you are requesting a room for the “Accessing Higher Ground Conference” in order to receive the discounted room rate. Call (303) 893-3333 to contact the Sheraton directly for reservations or information.
