There is a limited quantity of rooms available at the 39th NNGC rate at the Hilton Hotel, which is .9 miles from the DoubleTree and a 19 minute walk. I would not recommend walking as you have to cross a busy 4 lane surface street and walk under a major State highway. Here is the link to reserve a room at the Hilton Hotel: http://bit.ly/39thnng , or call at 1-800-HILTONS (445-8667) and mention group rate code “NNG”. If you reserve a room and find you cannot attend, please cancel the reservation so someone else may pick it up.
Once these rooms are booked there will be no additional rooms at the convention rate. The only rooms at the convention rate will be through cancelled reservations. It will be up to you to secure these as we will not be managing a waiting list. Any reservation cancelled in August is not put back into the room block and not available at the convention rate. When checking for cancellations there are two links and phone numbers to check. One is listed in the above paragraph and the other is in the paragraph below.
The 39th National Narrow Gauge Convention will be using the:
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Sacramento
2001 Point West Way
Sacramento, California 95815
Phone number: 916-924-4900
The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotels is 5.4 miles from the California State Railroad Museum which is located in downtown Sacramento. The DoubleTree is along the Interstate 80 Business Loop making for easy access. With the opening of the Golden One Basketball Center in Downtown Sacramento, that surrounding area has become very expensive and our $139/night per room and $159/night for a deluxe room rate is really a bargain. Reservations have just opened and the Group Code is NNG, for the 39th National Narrow Gauge Convention. Click here for the reservation webpage, or call 800-686-3775 and asking for the 39th National Narrow Gauge rate of $139.
We have been advised that there are 16 disabled accessible rooms at the Hotel. It is also advised if you need one of these rooms to first make your reservation for a regular room under the group code and rate, then call the 800 reservation number to convert that to an accessible room.
When making reservations for the Hotel on their website, if there are no rooms available in the NNG block for one of the nights you have picked, you will get an automated response that the room block is all booked. By calling the 800 number you should be able to talk to someone who can help you complete your reservation. We now have the Hotel rate available for three days before and after the Convention.
If you are having problems with reservations, please email us at NNGC2019@outlook.com. If we don’t know it is broken, we can’t fix it. For those who have contacted us about your reservation problems, thank you, it has helped us solve those problems.
