2018 All American Council Diocesan Video
The Diocese has maintained a Local Volume Rate Agreement with the Holiday Inn Express (HIE)
1) Call the HIE at 907-248-8848
2) Tell them you would like make a reservation (provide your arrival and departure dates) using the DIOCESE of ALASKA LOCAL VOLUME RATE AGREEMENT. The rate is $80/night (9/16-12/31). Local tax will be added to the daily room rate by the hotel.
3) Provide a credit card to secure your rservation and you will be given a confirmation number.
4) Be persistent that the Diocese DOES have this agreement on file. I don't think all their people are educated on this. Father David Rucker is the Point of Contact (POC) and it is listed as DIOCESE OF ALASKA
Here are some benefits of staying at the HIE, for both you and for the Diocese:
1) this is NOT just for clergy, but for ANY ORTHODOX MEMBER OF YOUR PARISHES
2) it is NOT just for diocesan sponsored events; you can use it year-round, individually
3) you can use it for Church travel, vacation lodging, medical travel needs, shopping, etc.
4) daily check in is 3pm and check out is 12 noon
5) in room wi-fi, coffee and tea; free breakfast buffet
6) heated indoor pool open from 7 am - 11 pm
