Event Location

We recommend you book a room now. A limited number of rooms are available at the Red Lion Paper Valley Hotel, which is where the event will be located. Mention you are with The John Birch Society and receive the room rate of $109.

The LaQuinta will honor our corporate room rate of $64 if you mention you are with The John Birch Society. However, the LaQuinta is not within walking distance of the Red Lion Paper Valley Hotel, so you'll need to either rent a car, call a taxi or Uber, or find a ride.
