New Hotel Payment Policy: Automatic Processing of First Night’s Payment on January 23, 2020, details below.

Council 2020 will take place Thursday, February 20 – Saturday, February 22, 2020 at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi. The Episcopal Diocese of West Texas has reserved a block of rooms for two nights (Thursday, February 20 and Friday, February 21, 2020) at the Omni Corpus Christi Hotel for clergy, delegates, and alternates who attend Council 2020.

Each church should carefully determine the number of rooms appropriate for its clergy, delegates, and alternates, informed by the congregation’s delegate count. Hotel reservations can be made by calling the Omni Corpus Christi Hotel, at (361) 887-1600, and asking for a room within the “Episcopal Diocese of West Texas” block.

New Hotel Payment Policy: Automatic Processing of First Night’s Payment on January 23, 2020

Please take note: Per the hotel’s new payment policy, the card on file for reservations will be charged the cost of the first night’s stay for all rooms reserved with that card on Thursday, January 23, 2020, at $125 per room. For example, if a church reserves five rooms using the office credit card, then that card will be charged $625 on January 23rd.

If a different card than the one used during reservation will be used to pay for the room, contact the Omni Corpus Christi Hotel by phone and provide updated payment information before Thursday, January 23.

All room reservations should be completed by Monday, February 3, 2020. Any unclaimed rooms within the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas’ reservation block will be automatically returned to the hotel after that date.
