Hotel Information

 

Please note that the information below is for Louisiana residents who live 60 miles or farther away from New Orleans.

Hotel Reservations

The LEH will reserve rooms for qualifying Louisiana participants at a nearby New Orleans hotel for Friday. The charges for this evening will be covered by the LEH. Details on the hotel as well as a confirmation number for your reservation are sent via email.

Hotel Cancellation Policy

Your room was paid for in advance by the LEH. If, for any reason, a cancellation must be made, notice to the PRIME TIME staff must be provided within 96-­hours/4 days of the check-in date/time. If sufficient notice is not provided, you will be expected to reimburse the LEH the night’s revenue of room and tax.

Meals/Reception

The LEH provides meal allowances for participants from Louisiana. This allows a maximum reimbursement of $20 per dinner on Friday and Saturday. Breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided during the workshop on Saturday. Eligible meal reimbursements should be reported on the LEH Travel Expense Report. In order for the LEH to process payment, receipt copies must be attached to the submitted travel expense report.

Parking

If necessary, hotel parking will be available at a nightly rate. The LEH will reimburse for one 24-­hour period only. Remember, carpooling will help minimize such costs. A few LEH spaces (marked “Reserved”; #70-­97) in the parking lot behind Turners’ Hall will also be available at no cost and on a first-­come, first served basis. Other spaces (yellow) in this lot are privately owned and are not available for use. Please note that the owner of the yellow spaces strictly enforces its towing policy. Eligible parking reimbursements should be reported on the LEH Travel Expense Report. In order for the LEH to process payment, receipt copies must be attached to the submitted travel expense report.

 

Please note that the information below is for OUT OF STATE trainees.

Travel Reservation

Participants must make their own travel reservations to New Orleans. Please contact your sponsoring agency for details on allowable travel expenses and procedures.

Hotel Reservations

Participants should make hotel reservations at the Drury Inn & Suites New Orleans for the training. The LEH has negotiated a reduced rate at this hotel. Participants or representatives of the sponsoring agency should contact their State Director for the booking code. Those who intend to stay at the Drury Inn & Suites New Orleans will need to contact the hotel and reserve accommodations 90 days before the event. After this time the hotel will release any excess rooms to the public. We recommend taking advantage of the Drury rate and booking 90 days before the event as availability tends to be low and rates tend to be high throughout New Orleans.

Hotel Information

Check in time at the Drury Inn & Suites New Orleans is at 3PM. If you arrive early, some rooms may be ready; but if your room is not ready secure luggage storage can be provided by the hotel. Checkout time is at 11AM. Requests for a late checkout (up to 1PM) can be made, but the hotel cannot accommodate the entire group in this regard. Incidental charges such as phone calls, movies, gratuity for services, etc. are considered personal and must be covered at your own expense. Please note that there is a short walk (1-­2 city blocks) through the New Orleans Central Business District (CBD) between the hotel and the training workshop venue.

Hotel Cancellation Policy

If for any reason a cancellation must be made, notice to the hotel must be provided 96-­hours/4 days before the check-­in date/time. If sufficient notice is not provided, the hotel will still charge you for the first night’s revenue of room and tax.

Meals

The hotel offers a complimentary breakfast buffet and evening snacks/drinks for guests. Lunch and snacks will be provided during the workshop.

Parking

If necessary, hotel parking will be available at a nightly rate. A limited number of parking spaces are available behind the LEH building. The LEH spaces (marked “Reserved”; #70-­97) will be available on a “first come, first serve” basis on Saturday at no cost for driving participants who are not staying at a hotel. Other spaces (yellow) in this lot are privately owned and are not available for use. Drivers who do not find parking at the LEH must search the parking lots near the building; rates vary.
