Accommodations / Hotel Reservations:

Hotel room reservations should be made directly with Loews Ventana Canyon Resort online by using this link “EFC Annual Membership Meeting Reservations.” If no rooms availability is returned, please call the hotel reservation service directly at (800) 234-5117 and they can assist you in checking for availability for your requested dates. EFC has secured a room block that provides the special rate of $249.00 per night plus applicable state and local taxes, currently at 12.050% covering the dates of March 27 to April 8, 2020. The Resort Charge is waived (normally $29 per night plus tax)—please check the reservation website for the hotel services and amenities covered under the waived resort fee.


Reservations can be cancelled up to 72 hours prior to arrival without penalty. If complete cancellation of an individual reservation takes place within 72 hours of the scheduled arrival, a cancellation fee equal to one (1) night’s room revenue will be charged with the exception of a personal or medical emergency where verification can be provided.  Check-in time is 4:00 pm. Check-out time is 12:00 pm. Guests arriving prior to the Hotel check-in time shall be accommodated as rooms become available. The Hotel shall accommodate late check-outs subject only to availability.


You MUST make your reservations on or before March 2, 2020 to receive the special room rate. EFC has reserved a small room block and the hotel will fill up quickly. Once EFC’s room block is full, we cannot guarantee the lower rate or room availability regardless of the cut-off date. Reservations made after March 2, 2020, or after the EFC room block is full, are subject to availability and rate change. Please only reserve the number of rooms that you will be using, as cancelling rooms on or after the cut-off date prevents other members from receiving the EFC special rate and may lead to penalties for EFC.
