Tipping the drivers would be greatly appreciated if you use the CONvergence shuttle service, as gratuity is not included in the cost of providing the service to our members.

There is no smoking while outside waiting for the CONvergence shuttles. CONvergence members may smoke in the DoubleTree’s East Courtyard, Smokers Paradise. 

Your overflow hotel may have an additional shuttle available by request that could transport you to CONvergence. It’s a good idea to check with the front desk.
