Guestroom Options

There are four guestroom options at our events.

1. I Do Not Need a Room- Select this option if you are commuting to the site.

2. Share with an Attendee- Also known as double occupancy. This guestroom option means that you will be matched up with another attendee in the same room.

  • For this option, the entire cost of your hotel stay will be billed to the Training Center.
  • You can choose a specific roommate from the registration drop down menu. If you do not have a specific person in mind to share with, choose "Any" and you will be assigned a same-sex roommate at check-in.
  • If a roommate has not been assigned to you by 6:00 p.m. on registration day, notify an onsite Training Center staff to avoid incurring a single room charge. If you registered to have a roommate, but do not have an attendee staying in your room and do not notify TJCTC, you will be responsible for paying a surcharge (half of the room plus tax) per night.
  • Let us know of any changes in your hotel room status while at the seminar (i.e., changing rooms, roommates, checking out early, etc.) so we can work with the hotel staff to avoid unnecessary charges.

3. Single Room

  • You (the attendee) will pay TJCTC $55 per night, payable by check or money order. 
  • If you will be arriving after 6:00 p.m., you must call the hotel to guarantee that the room reservation is not canceled.
  • Upon arrival, be prepared for the possibility of not being able to check into your room until late afternoon. For a list of hotel check-in times, please click here.
