Wondering about lodging options? Where to go? How to get there? We’ve gathered all the important information you’ll need for your trip to Anaheim, California.


HOTEL UPDATE - June 2, 2017: The group rate at the Anaheim Marriott ended on May 30. Rooms are still available, outside of our room block, through at market rates; these may change daily.

If you are arriving prior to June 23 for pre-conference workshops, etc., we have secured a limited number of additional rooms at a nearby hotel for the nights of June 22 and 23, with the expectation that you will transfer to the Anaheim Marriott by the night of June 24.

  • Avenue of the Arts Costa Mesa Hotel, 13mi (21km) from Anaheim Marriott
    $169/night, single/double, plus taxes. Book online here by June 2.

Limited, complementary shuttle service to/from the Anaheim Marriott for those at our overflow hotel(s) will be available on June 23 and 24. Details and schedule TBA.

Attendees who have not yet secured lodging should do so immediately using any of these options, or wherever lodging may be found. The presence of a city-wide convention immediately preceding our conference is seriously affecting vacancy across the area.
