Location:  The Hilton is located at 255 South West Temple.  It is located approximately 3 city blocks from the FHL.  SLIG will be offering a complimentary shuttle service to the FHL for labs and research,  returning to the Hilton during key times.

Group Rate:  SLIG participants may reserve lodging at the group rate of $134 single, double, triple, or quad, allowing you to choose individual privacy or an economical shared experience.  Guests in this block will also receive complimentary self-parking in the underground garage (value $14/day), complimentary wireless internet in the guest room (value $9.99/day), AND complimentary wireless internet in the classroom and other meeting spaces (value $14.99/day).

To Reserve your room:  To assure the most economical rate possible for our participants, SLIG will be taking reservations for lodging in conjunction with SLIG registration.  A deposit of one night ($134) will be required at the time of the reservation.
 
Availability:  Our hotel block offers check-in as early as Sunday, January 3rd for those who wish to arrive early for additional research, and as late as Tuesday, January 19th.  Extended dates may be possible and are based on availability.  In making your plans, please note that the Family History Library will be closed on Monday, January 18th for the Martin Luther King holiday.

Cutoff:  Group rates will be available as long as rooms remain available in the block or through December 10, 2015, whichever comes first.  After that time, reservations will be taken by the hotel based on availability and prices may vary.

Cancellation/Penalties:  One night's deposit ($134) will be required in order to guarantee your reservation, and will be charged with reservation.  Refunds may be made if cancellation is received by October 1st.  The balance due will be charged to your card on December 1st.  Additional information about how this reservation process will work will be posted prior to the opening of SLIG registration.

Straight talk:  Besides the convenience of being at the conference hotel and having all the comforts of home in this plush environment, there is one more very important reason to stay at the Hilton — doing so is what makes the Institute budget work and keeps SLIG registration fees reasonable.  In lieu of highly priced meeting room fees, hotels establish a minimum number of sleeping rooms that must be filled to offset those fees.  Therefore, while we don’t “require” our participants to stay in the conference hotel, we strongly encourage them to do so in order to assure the ongoing success of the program.  We thank you in advance for your support and hope you enjoy your pampered Hilton stay.
