Hotel Reservation Discount Deadline: July 16, 2004

Why should you stay in the headquarter hotel?
We encourage you to stay in the conference hotel and when making your reservation to identify yourself as a USENIX conference attendee.

It is by contracting rooms for our attendees that we can significantly reduce hotel charges for meeting room rental. And, when the sleeping rooms are not utilized, we face significant financial penalties. As a result, these penalties force us to ultimately raise registration fees.

We recognize, however, that not everyone can afford to stay in the conference hotel so we always try to book venues that have some low-cost alternatives available nearby the conference.

With costs going higher and higher, we are working very hard to negotiate the very best hotel rates and keep other conference expenses down in order to keep registration fees as low as possible. We appreciate you helping us in this endeavor.

USENIX has negotiated special rates for conference attendees at the Town & Country Resort and Convention Center. Please make your reservation as soon as possible by contacting the hotel directly. You must mention USENIX to get the special group rate. You may also book online here using the Attendee Code "USENIX."

The Town & Country is offering in-room high speed Internet access for the discounted price of $7.50 per day and/or $5 a day for a minimum of 5 days. Also, please note that we will still have wireless access in the conference areas for free, as usual.

Note: The Town & Country is fully booked for the night of August 10, 2004. If you have not yet made reservations at the Town & Country and need accomodations on the 10th, please contact the San Diego Concierge at 800.979.9091, and refer to USENIX to be booked into the Holiday Inn Select San Diego, which is located near the Town & Country and will provide shuttle service to and from the Town & Country during the Symposium.

The Town & Country Resort and Convention Center is approximately 10 minutes from the San Diego International Airport, Lindbergh Field. Airport transportation options include taxi (approx. $17 one way) and Cloud 9 Shuttle ($10 one way). The shuttle is located outside Baggage Claim in the Transportation Plaza area.

The San Diego Trolley is adjacent to the Town & Country. It is known for its reliability, safety, and convenience. Often called San Diego's "moving landmark," the Trolley is also a fun way to get around, whether traveling to the International Border or heading to Centre City's shopping, restaurants, harbor, and historic attractions. The San Diego Trolley now serves historic Old Town—California's birthplace—with its many shops and restaurants, Mission San Diego, the USA/Mexico border in San Ysidro, and Qualcomm Stadium at Jack Murphy Field.

Further information is available from the San Diego Convention and Visitors Bureau, as well as the Town and Country.
