    RESERVATION PROCEDURE: The most convenient way your guests can make their room reservation is by emailing our reservations department directly to reservations@crownehotelwarwick.com.

For those guests requesting a toll-free number, they may call (800) 227-6963; however, they will be serviced by a satellite office and not the hotel directly. Guests must identify their affiliation with USS America November Meeting when making reservations. Rates cannot be adjusted at check-in or check-out for guests who fail to identify their affiliation when making reservations. Special room requests may be indicated, but cannot be guaranteed (i.e. non-smoking, king bed, etc.)

    We have the meeting room from 8 am - 10 pm Friday and Saturday.

    As most of you already know, in November, 2020, the Board of Directors decided that even if the vaccines were made available in early 2021, it might not be in the best interest of the membership to hold the reunion in September 2021. Therefore, we planned with the hotel and now the reunion will take place in 2022.

    It will be held in Warwick RI. September 20, - 24, 2022

    Many may have already noticed the new look and feel of our website. We hope that you'll find it easier to navigate. Some changes to note:

    1) Drop down menu is now on the right vice the left. Just mouse over the elipsis (...) on the right of the top bar and the drop down will pop up.

    2) Color blocks and menus are cleaner and more in line with current website standards.

    3) Allows us a better support experience from our hosting company, Wild Apricot. 

    4) New page header with hull number and a "navy steel" background motif. 

    We'll continue to work page by page to make improvements along the way to the look/feel/style to make it more appealing and hopefully easier to find things.
