Double Occupancy Rates apply when 2 guests share one room. For guests who will be sharing a room with another person but would like to pay separately: Each guest may make their own reservation and each will be invoiced individually at the double occupancy rate. When you receive your tour information packet, you'll be able to indicate your "roommate".

If you would like to find a roommate so that you can take advantage of our double occupancy rates, you can review the Roommate Registry to see if there is a compatible person listed, and if not you can post your own listing. Please note that GABT does not vet any roommates. It is the full responsibility of the individual parties to make contact and to determine any and all compatibility as roommates.
