The Sage Room (where we hold our dinners and meetings) is a non-smoking room, as is the restaurant: Rita's Café.

There is no elevator at the hotel, and no porters. Please be sure (especially since this is an active hiking program) that you can handle your luggage to your room(s). Some are on the ground floor, and others are on the second floor, all with outside/exterior access. Since all rooms have mid-sized refrigerators, some participants bring their own alcoholic beverages to keep in their rooms, along with other food items: yogurt, fruit, trail mix, beverages, etc. Contact your program administrator with any questions at www.gohike.org (please be sure to include your program date in the subject line of your message).
