The 2023 FRA/LAFRA National Convention will be held September 23-30, 2023 at the Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks, Nevada.
The room rated are $102 plus 13.5% sales tax and a $2 Tourist Fee for a total of $117.77 per night (may not be exact, but very close) single or double. There is a fee for a total of $10 per person for each additional person, with a limit of four per room.
The hotel provides a free shuttle service to and from the Reno/Tahoe Airport.
The reservation link for the hotel is posted on the FRA Website if you wish to make reservations that way or you may call 1-800-648-1177 or 775-356-3300. Be sure to use the code GFRAC23.
If you need to make reservations for an ADA (handicap) room you need to call the hotel directly and not use the link. A standard ADA room has a tub/shower with grab bars but if you need a roll-in shower this will need to be specified also. The rooms with roll-in shower are in the other tower so additional walking will be needed (but if you are using a scooter it shouldn’t be any problem). Remember as with any hotel the number of ADA rooms is limited so please make your reservations early
If you want a room other than the standard king/double queen room you will need to call directly to reserve(do not forget to use the code GFRAC23). The reservation cut off date is 31 August. All rooms have a refrigerator and a Keurig coffee maker. Though Keurig cups are provided, if you drink a lot of coffee or like a special brand it is recommended you bring Keurig coffee cups with you.
The hotel has several restaurants with a wide variety of food choices, Starbucks coffee stand, Game On, Island Grill, Rosie’s Café, Oyster Bar and Anthony’s Chophouse. There are also several local restaurants close enough to easily walk to with a variety of menu options.
Those who will need a tuxedo rental may contact their local Men’s Wearhouse for sizing and this information will be forwarded to the local Reno store for preparation. The rental price is $99.99 plus tax (about $115) which includes tuxedo pants and jacket, shirt, tie, cummerbund and shoes.
Scooter and wheelchair rental information and rental agreement are attached. As the Nugget Hotel also has rental scooters available the Convention Committee will have a member to assist our FRA/LAFRA members with their rental pickup and return to help avoid any confusion.
