Rates listed include lodging and sales tax.  Reservations must be made by October 18 to assure the rate.  

Because our event is held during Octoberfest, different rules apply if you wish to secure lodging beyond our seminar dates:
The Enzian Inn requires a Friday and Saturday night reservation for Octoberfest and Octoberfest rates apply - there is no group rate or group exception for the festival.  If you make reservations for the seminar and wish to make reservations for the weekend too, there is no guarantee that you will be placed in the same room.  As an FYI, rooms at the Linderhof (next to the Enzian Inn) cost less during Octoberfest but require the same two-night reservation (Friday and Saturday).

The hotel’s direct reservation line is 800-223-8511, remember to specify that you are with the Washington Public Ports Association’s Small Ports Seminar. You will be asked to guarantee the reservation with a credit card.  Check-in time is 4:00 p.m. and check-out time is 11:00 a.m.  Cancellations must be received 2 days prior to arrival to avoid charges.

I have food allergies/I’m vegetarian.  How do I let you know this?
There is a comment section on the registration form.  PLEASE note this information there so that we can be sure to order meals that are proper for your needs!  If you have any troubles with the form, have any questions or forget to add that in when you register, please contact Missy Goodell and we'll be happy to help:  mgoodell@washingtonports.org or 360-943-0760.
