Reunion Accommodations

Reunion accommodations:

Here is a link to the official hotels of the GPGC 60th Anniversary Reunion (July 19-22, 2108). You have two to choose from -- the fabulous Courtyard Marriott and the equally fabulous TownePlace Suites(both located on the approach road to L'Auberge du Lac casino.) These two hotels are next to one another and share a pool, so we will be close to one another no matter which one you select.

       Courtyard Marriott
       TownePlace Suites

Remember to make your reservations as SOON as possible ! ! !

You can also reserve a room by calling Marriot directly. Make sure to identify yourself as part of the GPGC 60th BIRTHDAY group to get the group rate. If you are not offered the rates listed below, you're not getting the discount!

You can reserve a couple of different room types, all at the same discounted rate below. There is also an additional room tax for all hotels.

  • Courtyard Guest Room with King and Sofa Bed: $119/night
  • Courtyard Guest Room with 2 Queens: $119/night
  • TownePlace 1 King Studio: $119/night
  • TownePlace 2 Queens Studio: $119/night

You can book these rooms through June 28. However, we strongly urge you to make your reservation as early as possible. Lake Charles is very busy in the summer, and the hotels will fill up quickly. Even if you plan to stay in a different hotel, make your reservations early to ensure getting the spot that you want. Don't condemn yourself to commuting from a hotel room in Eunice or Jennings!

Dorm Option:

If you would like to stay in one of the McNeese dorms for the reunion, that option is available for $25/night. You will have to supply most things like sheets, pillow, etc. You may also have to share a suite / room with another person, but we will honor all roommate requests that we can. You will also be subject to McNeese housing rules--no alcohol in the dorm, respecting quiet hours, etc. If you would like to sign up for this option or have more questions please contact Alexis Nixon at Please be aware that we don't know which dorm yet--but it will be one of the newer "suite" style dorms with en suite bathrooms. You'll be able to pay by credit card through Paypal or just bring a check or cash to the reunion. Please sign up no later than July 13th--and the sooner the better, as it will help our planning process.
