Experience the perfect blend of convenience, privacy and comfort by staying at Griffin Gate Marriott Resort & Spa. Situated in the rolling Bluegrass Country hills near Lexington, Kentucky, this resort hotel is minutes from downtown, but feels like a true city escape. Play a round of championship golf or pamper yourself at our luxury spa. Enjoy an invigorating workout with a swim in its sprawling pool complex or visit its full fitness center.

For reservations, visit the reservation website or call the hotel’s reservations line at 800-228-9290.

You must identify yourself as part of the National Guardianship Association’s 2019 conference to obtain the group rate. It is important that you indicate any special rooming needs or arrangements at the time of this call.

Group Room Rate: $189.00, plus taxes.
Note that the online reservation system mentions a $15.00 per day resort fee. That fee has been waived for rooms in NGA’s conference room block.

NGA cannot guarantee room availability. The discounted group rate concludes on Tuesday, September 24. Rooms will be available at the discounted rate until that date, or until the block is filled, whichever comes first. Please be aware that the NGA room block usually fills well before the deadline. At that point, you are competing with other guests for rooms. Requests for reservations after September 24 will be accepted by the hotel on a space and rate availability basis. For those making reservations prior to the deadline, rooms may also be available at the group rate on the three days prior to and the three days after the actual conference to accommodate vacation planning.

Continuing Education Credits 

CEU information will be posted when it becomes available.

Early bird and advance registration discounts exist to encourage early registration so that NGA can better estimate attendance and adequately prepare for conference meals, materials, and space.
