GOVERNMENT PER DIEM RATE
NOTE REGARDING THIS RATE: AFA’s Government Per Diem rate sleeping rooms are available to only uniformed Military Personnel and DOD Civilians or Foreign Attachés with a dependent ID Card. You will be asked to show a valid ID when you check into the hotel. AFA will audit reservations; you will be contacted if you are not eligible. If you do not have a valid active duty/DOD government ID at check-in, you will be charged the prevailing rate at the time of check-in. Unfortunately, due to AFA’s limited number of sleeping rooms at this rate, Retired Military and Government Contractors are not eligible for this rate.
Gaylord Rockies is pleased to extend the government per diem rate of $169 single/double per night to those that qualify based on the above paragraph, plus applicable fees and taxes. In order to make a reservation at the government per diem rate, you must first register for the AFA Warfare Symposium. At the end of the registration process, your Internet browser will display a registration confirmation page. Click on the reservation link under “Hotel Reservations” and then input the appropriate information. To guarantee your reservation, you will need to provide a credit/debit card to the hotel when you book online or by phone. To cancel your reservation without penalty, you must cancel your reservation 10 days prior to arrival. If you cancel less than 10 days prior to arrival, your credit/debit card will be charged a one night’s room and tax penalty. Please make your reservations now while rooms are still available at the government per diem rate.
