As of March 23rd, the Red Lion has no more rooms available on the evening of Wed., June 14. They continue to have rooms available on June 13th, 15th, 16th and 17th.

The special discounted group rate for our conference is $159/night plus tax for king or double queen guest rooms. Each room includes wifi, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, and free parking. Breakfast is not included.

Attendees may now reserve rooms online using the Group Rate Registration Link, or by calling the hotel directly at  (503) 283-4466 and mentioning you are with the “United Methodist Conference.”

Make your reservation early as there are other large events in the area during the same dates and competition for rooms will be high. The room block is open now and will close when filled or by May 22, whichever is sooner.

Meals Package

Meal package ordering is a required part of registration. The package will include 3 mini-breakfasts, 3 lunches and 2 dinners, Thursday-Saturday for a cost of $180. This package is required for all members to Annual Conference. The hotel does not have a large restaurant, nor are there many dining options in the area except fast food and a grocery store. Due to the limited options, short meal breaks and the desire to share fellowship over meals, the Annual Conference Sessions Committee decided to require the meal package.

On the online registration form, attendees are able to request special dietary requirements such as vegetarian, vegan, lactose-free and gluten-free. The entire conference will be nut-free.
