HOTELS

All hotel reservations are handled directly with the hotel. There are many hotels to choose from in the St. George area. The hotels listed here have offered our attendees a discounted rate.  Unless otherwise noted, when making your reservations with these hotels, mention you are with the Rural Water conference to get the specialty rate. And remember, hotels fill up quickly down there and most discounted rates expire a month before the Conference so make your reservations early!

 PLEASE NOTE: Rural Water is not in any way a party to hotel rates or accommodations. We have simply asked these hotels to give our attendees a discounted rate and they have agreed to do so. All hotel arrangements, rates and policies are at the discretion of the hotels themselves, and reservations, rates and agreements are between the hotel and the guest staying with them.
