The reunion committee has made it convenient for you by partnering with the Hilton Garden Inn-Merrillville for a block of rooms, at single or double occupancy, with reduced rates for the weekend and a deeply discounted rate for guests staying through Sunday Night. A Friday evening Meet and Greet is scheduled, with an optional Brunch event on Sunday at Schererville’s Toast & Jam Restaurant (if interested, check the Sunday Brunch link when registering).

Hilton Garden Inn Merrillville

7775 Mississippi Street, Merrillville, Indiana


The rates for Friday, August 16, 2024, and Saturday, August 17, 2024, are $169 per night, for single or double occupancy. Family members who extend their stay through Sunday, August 18, 2024, will enjoy a further reduction in their room rate to $139 per night, for single or double occupancy.

Book your hotel room with the Hilton Garden Inn, Schererville, Indiana by clicking BOOK ROOMS FOR THE SUMMERS FAMILY REUNION NOW or by contacting the hotel directly at (219)-769-7100 and requesting rates under the “Summers Family Reunion Block”.  The discounted rate for the Summers Family closes once the block of rooms is sold out or on July 17, 2024, whichever occurs first.  Because the hotel is located near popular restaurants and shopping malls, family members are encouraged to reserve rooms early.

Our primary weekend event is the Summers Reunion and Caribbean BBQ on Saturday.  However, we have planned optional events on Friday and Sunday to extend additional options for family fellowship, especially since many out-of-town family and friends will be present on those days.  Meals and beverages outside the Saturday event are available for purchase a la carte.
