Dear Adult Leaders:

I apologize for the second email so quickly after yesterdays update, however, I have been advised by the DoubleTree Hotel that they have emailed all congregational primary leaders their hotel confirmation #'s and information. If you have NOT received anything, please contact Nacheal Kelley at the hotel directly.

If you need a final estimated bill, also email Nacheal and she will provide you with that. If you are claiming tax exemption (which did require advance registration with the State of Texas) then you will need to send that form and letter to Nacheal when you request a final bill or the estimate will include all of the 17% tax.

It is a good idea for everyone, if you are claiming tax exemption to send this information to the hotel in advance as to make your check-in process easier and faster.

Here is Nacheal's contact information:

Nacheal Kelley
Group Reservations Coordinator - DoubleTree by Hilton, Greenway Plaza
(713) 629-1200, ext. 2304

For the Crowne Plaza, I have not heard from anyone that they have not received the information they need from them, but if you have not please reach out. I am sorry, I do not have a specific contact for that hotel.

As a reminder for both hotels, you will be expected to pay ALL room and tax AT ARRIVAL either by check or credit card. Also, the hotels may require a credit card to authorize for any incidental charges. It is not advisable to use a debit card for hotel accommodations.
As always, please let me know if you need help or have questions. I am available by phone Monday-Thursday of this week and Tuesday-Friday next week; or via email to help everyone as we draw closer to The Gathering.
