You MUST book online, as you will not get these rates if you call the hotel directly. Book your room by JANUARY 2ND, 2019 in order to receive the group rate. Reservations made after this date are based on availability and may or may not be at the group rate.

PLEASE NOTE: You must have a valid Canadian ID upon check-in, otherwise the discounted rate will be revoked and the Best Available Rate will apply.
Room rates are displayed per night and include one buffet breakfast and a two-day Northwest Flower & Garden Festival pass per person, plus additional benefits listed above. All rates include taxes.
For reservation questions only, please call 888-233-9527.


Our huge Plant Market will tempt you in many ways, so don’t hold back just because you are traveling across the border! We offer FREE Washington State Department of Agriculture Phytosanitary Inspection Certification if you buy any plants and/or bulbs at the Northwest Flower & Garden Festival!

Almost all nursery vendors selling plants at the Festival have been pre-certified by the WA State Department of Agriculture. After you have purchased your plants, take them to the WSDA booth - #2517. Complete the required forms, and once the plants have been inspected by the WSDA team, you can pick them up.
Note: the WSDA booth closes earlier than the show, so plan to stop by the booth before 4pm to receive inspection for the day.

When you do cross the border, show the customs agent your completed inspection forms. If you are traveling with friends in the same vehicle or on a bus tour, you can list your plants together on one form to make it easier.

Most packaged seeds do not need a phyto, and if you’re unsure if something will pass inspection, just ask the exhibitor!
