Meeting participants staying at the Grand Hyatt are also eligible for a breakfast discount on the hotel premises each day of your stay. Make your reservations today while rooms are available.

In addition to saving money, staying at the Grand Hyatt will save you valuable conference time.

You will also be better able to take advantage of informal networking opportunities with your conference colleagues throughout the hotel complex, while enjoying its spectacular waterfront setting on San Diego Bay.

Want to get away for food and conversation? The Grand Hyatt is located in the heart of San Diego’s vibrant Seaport Village and across the street from San Diego’s newest retail center, The Headquarters at Seaport.

The hotel is located approximately 10 minutes by taxi from the San Diego International Airport (SAN). There is no conference shuttle transportation, but attendees can visit the San Diego International Airport for information about ground transportation to the hotel.
