Hotel Information

Westin Bonaventure Hotel and Suites
Westin Bonaventure Hotel

 

The Westin Bonaventure Hotel and other conveniently located hotels in downtown Los Angeles offer reduced rates for those attending the Convocation. To reserve a room, please click on the “Hotel Rates and Registration” link. You may make a reservation directly with the participating hotel of your choice either by using the links provided or by phone.

 

Please do not send your reservation requests or deposits to Self-Realization Fellowship, as we are unable to process your reservations or hotel payments, and the delay could cause you to miss securing the hotel of your choice. All reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

To register onlineClick on the hotel of your choice; the link will direct you to that hotels’ reservations web page, which is encoded to ensure you receive the reduced rate for the Convocation. If a hotel requires a "group code" in order to give you the reduced rate, you will find that information following the hotel rate; otherwise no group code is needed to register. Each hotel has its own web page where you may enter your personal information as well as your arrival and departure dates. If you have specific needs (room sharing, mini-refrigerator, rollaway bed, etc.) be sure to indicate so in the special requests section.

 

It is not advisable to send personal information or credit card information by email, as emails are not 100% secure. Of course, you can use email to communicate with the hotels on other matters. Only enter your credit card information on the secure hotel websites.

 

To register by phone: Please contact the participating hotel of your choice by the phone numbers provided and mention "Self-Realization Fellowship Convocation" to receive the Convocation rates offered.

 

Hotel Confirmation

It is very important to receive a confirmation number before you arrive. 
If you register on the web, your registration number will be given to you immediately upon completing your transaction. If you make your reservations by phone, be sure to obtain a confirmation number from the hotel in which you will be staying. Please be sure to contact the hotel directly if you do not receive a confirmation number, as you will need it upon your arrival.

Hotel Rates

Special rates for hotel accommodations are being offered to Convocation participants. All rooms are subject to tax (approximately 15% depending upon the hotel).

Payment

A credit card guarantee or a one-night deposit is required with all reservations. If you need to mail a check, send it to the hotel of your choice, Attn: Accounting Dept., and include the registered person's name and confirmation number. If you need to cancel a reservation, please do so at least 72 hours in advance or you will be charged a one-night non-refundable fee. If you cancel, please obtain and retain a cancellation number.

Sharing rooms

You can share a room with other members you know, but it is recommended that you make the arrangements before Convocation. If two or more persons are sharing the same room, fill out only one form.

 

If you request the hotel to assign a double room with another Convocation participant (not all hotels provide this service), whenever possible you will be placed with someone arriving and departing on the same day. Since this is not always possible, you should be prepared to pay the single room rate for all or at least part of your stay. SRF volunteers will be available at the lobby of the Bonaventure Hotel to help with some of the hotel accommodation challenges you may face. 

Mini-refrigerators and rollaway bed charges

There may be an additional charge for mini-refrigerators or rollaway beds. Please check with your hotel before ordering either of these items.

Required ID during check-in

Please note: The registered guest will be asked to present a government-issued ID (driver's license, passport, etc.) in order to check into the hotel.

Ground Transportation

Shuttle buses to the participating hotels will be departing from the Bonaventure Hotel's Figueroa Street entrance approximately every twenty minutes. These shuttles will not run during classes. 

Questions

For questions about your reservation at any of the hotels, call, fax or email the hotel in which you will be staying.
