Overflow Hotel Information

September 16 Update: Our conference hotel is completely booked for several nights during the AGM, including Saturday.  No need to worry though. We have set up overflow room blocks at two hotels near Loews with special rates available until September 26, subject to room availability. Details about the hotels and how to make reservations are provided below. Note: Room availability at The Lodge at Ventana Canyon is now very limited, so if you are thinking of staying at that overflow hotel, make your reservation now.

Your Options:  It may be possible to get a room at Loews through an online travel agency's room block, such as Expedia, Travelocity, etc.  However you would not be able to get the JASNA Rate. We recommend making reservations at one of our two overflow hotels. Be sure to ask about cancellation policies.

Please Note: If you reserved more room nights at Loews than you will actually need for the AGM, or if you have decided to room with someone and still have an extra room reserved, please cancel the room nights you won’t be using.

The Lodge at Ventana Canyon
6200 North Clubhouse Lane

The Lodge at Ventana Canyon Website


We have reserved a block of rooms at The Lodge at Ventana Canyon, a small resort-style hotel/country club adjacent to Loews. The 800-square-foot suites have either one king bed or two double beds, a kitchenette with microwave and refrigerator, dining area, living area and oversized bathroom. In addition, complimentary shuttle van service is available to take you back and forth between The Lodge and Loews Ventana Canyon Resort. The JASNA room rate is $169 per night, plus tax and a $20 service fee. To make reservations, call Janet Hare on weekdays at 1-800-828-5701 before September 26, 2006, and ask for the Jane Austen Society of North America rate. The rate will be available until that date or until the rooms are booked. 

Sheraton Tucson Hotel and Suites

5151 E. Grant Road

Deluxe guestrooms with one king or two double beds are available at the Sheraton Tucson for the special JASNA rate of $119 per night, plus tax, if reserved by September 26. Suites are also available for $139 per night, plus tax. All rooms feature the Sheraton’s “Sweet Sleeper” bed, and a full American breakfast buffet is included in the price. The Sheraton is about a 15-minute drive from Loews, so you would need to order a cab or have a rental car. To make reservations, call The Sheraton at 1-800-325-3535 by September 26, 2006 and mention the Jane Austen Society of North America to get this special rate. The rate will be available until that date or until the rooms are booked.
