What do I need to provide at Check-In?

How do I set up a room block for my upcoming wedding/family reunion/group trip?

You will need to contact the Hotel Sales Director at 337-407-2121 x504 to set up your room block. Typically, a minimum of 10 expected reservations is required to set up a group block for discounted room rates.
