The conference will be held at the beautiful Sunriver Resort located at the edge of the high desert, and in the shadow of the Cascade Range. For lodging rate and information please call Sunriver Resort directly at 800-547-3922 and ask for a room under the NWGIS room block. Large groups renting a home in Sunriver please still reserve under the NWGIS room block.
Room Rates (does not include 8% tax, 15% resort fee, rates good through September 20th)
- Single or Double Guest Room: $89
$195 Now $159
- River Lodge:

Sunriver is getting very low on single rooms at the per diem rate but has offered to lower the rates for Suites and River Lodge rooms to encourage people to share in order to open up more single rooms. The Suites have 2 Queen beds with 2 bathrooms. This is actually more cost effective than single rooms. You can call in and switch your room for no additional fee.
Overflow accommodations are being provided by La Quinta Inns and Suites, which is located in Bend just 15 minutes from Sunriver. Rooms are reserved under NWGIS and will be held until October 1st. Room rates are $75 per night. 541-388-2227
