    My son has decided not to attend West Point and we have nonrefundable reservations for June 26th through the 28th. I am willing to give these to the parents of some West Point cadet who will be there for R day, or just visiting their son or daughter. I realize this is short notice, but I hate to cancel these reservations and allow the hotel to extort more money from other people. The room is a Premium King with a Sofa Bed. Should sleep 3 to 4. It cost me over $900.

    In my opinion, the dramatic price increase just for these events, and the inability to reschedule or cancel reservations amounts to extortion. I'm sure they wouldn't have any problem booking others into the room. They just want to collect for the same room twice at inflated rates. Sorry for the rant..

    In any event, I hope some lucky family could use these. I will not transfer these to others for them to resell to someone else, and it is only for a family with a cadet at West Point.

    Please private email me with your contact information and I will get in touch with you. I have to give your information to the hotel for you to use the reservations.

    Thanks. He hated to decline the USMA appointment, but he's made the best choice for him. Hope some lucky family can use the reservations...

    I forgot to mention in case people don't know, the Thayer Hotel is actually on West Point grounds itself, and is very convenient for everyone. It's hard and expensive to get these reservations.

    I would have edited my original post, but the board won't allow me to.

    Enjoy!

    That is all I want for my children also. The ability to listen to their own needs and make good decisions for their future. Our children have a bright future ahead regardless if they attend USMA or not. Just don't tell my son I said that. Haha! He has been to several other large college settings this summer and compares USMA as most favorable.

    Our son is just beginning the roller coaster ride to USMA. We went for graduation from SLE and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express as we have 4 sons. We missed the bigger rooms at Thayer. Husband is retired from the Navy and we went on base the night before to explore. Beautiful campus. My son loved USMA and hopes to be in the class of 2021.

    Best of luck to you, that must have been a very hard decision to make but demonstrates a self awareness not many have at his age. Good luck to you and your family.

    I have had many inquiries on this, but people aren't checking back to the board, or giving me adequate contact information. I have a message out to all who've inquired. Someone suggested I contact the local parents club, which I have done. These reservations are going to go to the first people who can confirm they have a son or daughter at USMA, can use the reservations, and take the time follow up. Thanks...

    I know how to read my messages, it's just that nobody gave contact information when they wrote me. I contacted the local West Point Parents club, on the advice of someone here, and they were able to give the room to someone they could confirm. Thanks!

    Not sure if this is still available, but we can find someone who needs a room via the West Point Moms page. If you'd like me to help, please send me a PM. I'd love to stay at the Thayer, as I'll be there for my book signing, but I"m staying w/ my friend over in Fishkill and that will be a blast. This is such a kind and generous offer. May your son be very happy at the school he has selected.

    My comment was for Red Dragon who didn't know how to PM. Glad you were able to help out another WP family.
