Conference Hotel

ROOM BLOCK IS NOW OPEN (all events are held at the Marriott Marquis at the San Diego Marina)

The Marriott (conference hotel) on the left of the convention center.
The Hilton (secondary hotel) to the right of the convention center.
They are about .6 of a mile apart from lobby to lobby.
Look at that pretty sidewalk by the marina that goes between them!

You MUST be a registered attendee to use this room block. One room per conference registration. We will be checking and removing rooms booked by non-registered people or who have booked multiple rooms.

Secondary Hotel Block Now Open: Hilton San Diego Bayfront

In order to make sure there are enough rooms, as the Marriott Marquis Marina has been filling up, we’ve negotiated with a hotel that is a short walk from the conference hotel. You don’t even have to cross the street. The Hilton Bayfront is on the other side of the convention center from the Marriott. You can walk along the wide sidewalk next to the Marina or on the sidewalk in front of the convention center and you will be right with us in the center of the Bouchercon action.

$199 a night for a King Bed (many of them with Bay Views) — a great deal.

Hilton San Diego Bayside (on the other side of the convention center– a short walk to the convention hotel)
