How to Reserve Rooms
BEST WESTERN EXECUTIVE INN
In downtown Seattle, where most "rack rates" are above $100 even for fairly low-end accommodations, Potlatch has rates of: $79.00/single or double occupancy; $89 for triple; and $99.00 for quad. Plus tax.
There is one caveat to having these convention rates:
PLEASE DO NOT USE BEST WESTERN'S ON-LINE RESERVATION SERVICE OR NATIONAL "800 #" TO MAKE YOUR HOTEL RESERVATIONS. (The toll free number we have listed above is for this hotel specifically, and may be used.)
Please call in your reservation directly to the hotel, BWEI has its own "800 #", see above; or email them directly (numbers and email address listed above).
You may want to check out information about the hotel on their web site, but please use the toll free or direct numbers to reserve your room, and remember to say that you are with Potlatch so you counted in our room block, and get our group room rate.
If you have questions about the hotel or need help with a travel-related problem, please email Paul M Carpentier at firstname.lastname@example.org
