Esprit has been held at the Port Angeles Red Lion since 1989. The hotel eagerly looks forward to our event and joint planning for the next Esprit begins literally the day the previous Esprit ends. Official information about the Red Lion hotel is here.
"Many of our 186 spacious guestrooms and suites have balconies overlooking the harbor, as well as microwaves and refrigerators. All rooms feature coffee makers, free wi-fi, telephone dataports and cable TV with Encore. When it's time to relax, we also have an outdoor pool, whirlpool and fitness center. " --The Red Lion
To get the best hotel rates you must follow the instructions on the accommodations page and make reservations directly with the hotel. The national Red Lion reservation service and travel agencies do not know of the special rates. The trip can be much more affordable and enjoyable when shared. Check our rideshare/roomshare bulletin board to make connections with other attendees.
If you need to save money, there are alternate hotel choices nearby. However, you will be inconveniently far enough away from the Red Lion that you will miss out on much of the atmosphere. Much of the magic of Esprit results simply from being in the middle of everything as it happens. The inconvenience of going back to a different hotel will complicate plans for changing clothes, freshening up, or retrieving forgotten items such as purses and badges.
