For the 2017 LCMS District Youth Gathering – Omaha, congregations will be responsible for making their own housing reservations directly with the Gathering hotels. The Gathering has contracted with the Embassy Suites and Marriott to ensure there will be ample space for participants. Special housing rates have been arranged for Gathering participants.
- Determine what type and how many rooms your group will need.
- Note: For liability reasons, it is not advisable to put one adult and one youth alone in one room or in one bed. DO NOT put male and female participants in the same room unless they are married to each other.
- Make contact with Embassy Suites or Marriott, using the procedure outlined below.
- Housing costs are not included in the Gathering registration fee. Groups are responsible for paying their own hotel bill.
- Please note that the hotels are blocking rooms at the discounted rate until October 25, 2017. Room reservations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Be sure to reserve your rooms right away to avoid disappointment.
- Rooms will only be tax exempt if the congregation pays the hotel directly. If you plan to use your congregation’s tax exempt status, you must provide a copy of the tax exempt certificate when you check in/out and then pay with a check or credit card with the same name as the certificate.
- Room keys will be available at the front desks of the respective hotels.
