Conference

Hotel and Travel Information

SLAS2016 will be held at the San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, CA, USA. The convention center address is 111 W Harbor Dr., San Diego, CA 92101.

SLAS has partnerships in place with the following hotels and service providers in order to provide conference the best rates and convenience.

Individual Hotel Reservations

SLAS2016 has contracted with four of San Diego's premier convention hotels the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina, the Hilton San Diego Bayfront, the Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter and the Omni San Diego Hotel. SLAS has negotiated discounted rates at these properties for SLAS2016 participants. While the hotel rates include a rebate to SLAS to help offset the costs of the Convention Center rental, in order to keep registration costs down, the negotiated rates are below standard guest rates quoted at the hotels if you are not with SLAS.

At this time, each of the SLAS2016 Conference Hotels are SOLD OUT over some dates of the SLAS2016 Conference.

The deadline to reserve your room at the negotiated SLAS2016 rate was December 24th. Bookings made after this date will receive the SLAS2016 rate based only on individual hotel availability.

The Benefit of Staying in the Official SLAS Hotel Block

SLAS2016 has negotiated special rates and benefits for conference attendees at three of San Diego's premier convention hotels the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina, the Hilton San Diego Bayfront and the Omni San Diego Hotel.

Not only are these hotels conveniently located adjacent to the convention center, but SLAS2016 attendees benefit in several other ways:

  • Significant discounts off standard guest room rates
  • Complimentary guest room Internet service (value of up to $15 per night)
  • Complimentary guest access to hotel fitness center at the Marquis, Hilton and Omni
  • Flexible booking policies
  • Simplified ability to make reservation changes, if required

By staying in the SLAS block of guest rooms, SLAS is able to contract premier facilities such as the San Diego Convention Center. Additionally, you are helping the Society meet its contractual obligations to the hotels, avoid penalties and help to underwrite the cost of convention center rental, therefore keeping conference registration fees as affordable as possible. Your support of booking your room within the SLAS2016 guest room block is greatly appreciated.
