The 2018 Reunion of DD-786's shipmates commences on Thursday, September 20, 2018 at the Sacramento Embassy Suites Riverfront Promenade.  Join with your friends and shipmates in the Hospitality Room (the John A. Sutter Boardroom) to check in and pickup your name badge and reunion packet. The Hospitality room will be stocked with snacks and beverages for your pleasure.  In addition the Embassy Suites Hotel provides each guest with a nightly 2 hour reception (5:30 - 7:30) where unlimited drinks and snacks are also available. We encourage all attendees to take advantage of this hotel benefit.

Embassy Suites is located within walking distance of Old Town Sacramento and many other attractions.
Here are some important facts to consider.  This hotel provides unscheduled airport shuttle service from the airport. Upon picking up your baggage, call the hotel and request the shuttle.  (916) 326-5000.   If you are driving to Sacramento, we think it would be wise to check parking costs in the neighborhood as the valet parking is costly.
