I need to order oxygen for the conference. How should I handle it with the hotel?

Request that your tanks/equipment are delivered to the front desk of The Summit with your name on the order. When you make your hotel reservation, please alert the hotel staff of the date the equipment will arrive.

I heard that The Summit, A Dolce Hotel, is dog-friendly.  Is this true?

The Summit welcomes your four-legged friend under 50 pounds. A non-refundable $50 fee per night applies. Pets must be declared upon check-in and the pet agreement must be turned into the front desk.  In order for your pet to join you for the conference weekend, you MUST ask for a pet-friendly room when making your hotel reservation.  There is a limited amount of dog-friendly rooms, so be sure to book early!

What should I wear to Conference & LAMposium and the Breath of Hope Gala?

You may also want to bring comfortable clothing for the Zumba or other fitness activities. Don’t forget your dancing shoes and cocktail attire for the Breath of Hope Gala!
