Hotel Information

The host hotel and convention site for NARCON 2008 is The Kahler Grand Hotel located in downtown Rochester, Minnesota.  (The same location as NARCON 2007.)

A block of rooms at the Kahler Grand has been set aside for NARCON attendees.  A special rate of $85 per night (plus taxes) has been arranged.  Rooms must be booked by February 27, 2008 in order to lock-in at that rate.

To reserve a hotel room at the Kahler by phone, call 1-800-533-1655.  Be sure to tell them that you are attending NARCON to get the special room rate.

To reserve a hotel room using the Web, just click on the following link:

https://reservations.ihotelier.com/crs/g_reservation.cfm?groupID=82346&hotelID=13349

This link provides direct access to the hotel reservations system for our event.  If you log-in to the Kahler reservations system using this link, you just need to select your check-in/check-out dates, enter your contact info, select your preferred room type (1 King bed, or 2 double beds) and enter your credit card info.  Once you enter the information, the reservation is complete and you’ll be directed to a reservation confirmation page.  (Should take less than two minutes!)

If you choose to make your reservations on-line without using this link (by starting at the Kahler web site), select “Group Reservations,” then enter attendee code “NRCN” so the room nights/reservation is credited to our account (and, more importantly, so you get the NARCON room rate of $85 per night).
