Room Reservations - Please Read the Instructions Below

The Ramada Geneva Lakefront is, once again, hosting the upcoming 2017 Seneca Land District Spring Convention April 7-9, 2017 in Geneva, NY. If you are reserving a room at the Ramada (HQ) - either through your chapter or individually - please read the information below.

Chapter representatives from each SLD chapter have already received this information. If you are reserving a room through your chapter, your representative will include you on the chapter rooming list provided to him.

Whether you are reserving a room through your chapter or individually, the reservation dates and policies (below) are the same. Please read carefully as policies may be different than those you are familiar with from previous conventions.

  • The hotel will begin accepting reservations at 9:00am on Monday, March 13, 2017. Call the hotel at 315-789-0440. (Please do not attempt to call earlier as reservations will not be accepted until the proper time).
  • All reservations must be accompanied by a credit card guarantee or first night's deposit equal to $110.00. For chapters, a credit card guarantee is also required from those chapters paying for all their rooms. In this instance, full payment of room charges can be made by check upon arrival.
  • Where applicable (chapters), tax-exempt certificates must be received no later than Friday, March 24, 2017.
  • For those attending the convention on an individual basis (without a chapter), reservations can be made directly with the hotel beginning at 9:00am on Monday, March 13, 2017 (same as chapters).
  • The deadline for all reservations is Friday, March 24, 2017. After that date, all rooms not reserved as part of the barbershop block will be released back to the hotel for resale.

If you have any questions, please contact Alex Cochrane - Ramada Geneva Lakefront at 315-789-0400.
