Directions and Hotels:

The Westwood Club is between Horsepen and Libbie, Broad and Monument at 6200 West Club Lane near St Mary's Hospital.

The nearest hotels are Sheraton Richmond West (804) 285-2000, Courtyard by Marriott (804) 282-1881, and Crowne Plaza West (804)285-9951. All of these are located on West Broad Street near I-64 and Glenside.

The Sheraton is offering a 10% discount to our class. Room rates are normally $89-109. Ask for SET ACCOUNT NUMBER 347172 when making reservations online or by phone. The Sheraton also offers a shuttle to and from the Westwood Club. Make your reservation for the shuttle when you check in. (The shuttle is 1st come, 1st served.) The only drawback to the shuttle is that they will NOT shuttle after 11 pm. We have no rooms blocked off as there was a fee for this. Use the acct number above for the discount.

Courtyard by Marriott has a block of 15 rooms set aside for "Thomas Jefferson Class of 1968." Their discounted rooms rates are $99-$109. Courtyard is closer by about 1/2 mile to the Westwood Club and TJ, but they offer no shuttle.

The Crowne Plaza West (located between Sheraton and Courtyard) has a block of 10 rooms at $89. For reservations, you may go online to www.crowneplaza.com/richmondva and enter your Group Code TJC. You can also call the hotel directly at (804) 285-9951 or call the toll-free reservations line at 1-800-227-6963 (1-800-2CROWNE). Please remember to request the Thomas Jefferson Class of '68 reunion rate in order to receive your discounted pricing. They have no shuttle, but do have a list of cabs. Blocked rooms will be released 3 weeks prior to the reunion and will be subject to availability and prevailing rates.
