What’s Happening at Geneva Hospitality’s Resorts?

We’re on
Both The Cove of Lake Geneva and Mike Ditka Resorts have joined GovRooms!

According to, it’s “the newest site for searching for per diem hotels for federal travelers and state government travelers. People can search over 18,000 General Service Administration (GSA) approved hotels that offer a government hotel rate that is at or below the Federal Per Diem for their location.”

While there are many other sites that list per diem hotels, GovRooms is the only one which allows searches for government rate hotels on a map, which means you’re able to find the closest per diem hotel to where you need to go.
