Shreveport Convention Center and the Hilton Shreveport

The Hilton Shreveport is located in the heart of downtown, connected to the Shreveport Convention Center, site of GCAGS-GCSSEPM 2018. A modern hotel with all the amenities you’ve grown to expect from Hilton (heated rooftop pool, 24-hour fitness center, three on-site restaurants, business center), the Hilton is located within walking (or complimentary shuttle) distance of the Red River and Boardwalk, Festival Plaza (which will house the Red River Revel Arts Festival during the convention), Sci-Port Discovery Center, and the brand-new Aquarium.

The convention rate is $119 for a single or double room, $129 for triple occupancy, $139 for quad. Suites are also being offered based on availability. Rates do not include applicable taxes (currently 15.6%). Reservations may be made by calling reservations, 1–800–HILTONS, the calling the hotel directly at 1-318-698-0900; be certain to mention “Geological Societies” and “GCAGS 2018.” Or easier yet, click here to go directly to GCAGS 2018’s custom reservations page.
