LAUC-SD has procured special rates and amenities at the three places closest to the campus (below in alphabetical order), and others available with no special rates below as well.
Located across the street from the northwestern boundary of campus and within view from the Assembly venue, the Estancia is our closest and most walkable hotel option, and also a posh one. You can get the preferential UCSD rate ($189 plus taxes and fees = $222) by entering “UCSD” in the Promo Code box on the hotel’s booking utility. This rate is subject to availability (book early! ) and includes discounted overnight valet parking ($10 instead of $25), free Wi-Fi, a bottle of wine and 2 bottles of water upon arrival, and fitness center/pool & spa access. (You must present your LAUC Assembly registration to confirm UCSD affiliation at check-in. Confirmation email will suffice.) The standard (“deluxe”) room for the $189 UCSD rate features a king bed; higher rates apply for double queen or upgraded room types. Hotel guests may contact Manda McHugh ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) in advance of arrival to request a complimentary discount card good for $20 off of any Spa Service (limited quantity available, subject to Spa appointment availability).
Walking from the Estancia to the Assembly venue in Village 1 takes about 8 minutes along a short (.4 mile), gentle route using campus sidewalks. Our recommended path: from the Estancia street entrance, cross North Torrey Pines Road at Pangea Drive and continue straight up the slight incline to Scholars Drive North; turn left (north) and proceed toward the Rady School of Management and Village 1 buildings seen in the distance; after passing Rady you will see Village 1 just ahead on your left; enter and take the elevator to the 15th floor.
The Residence Inn is south of the campus perimeter and sits in a residential area. We have a courtesy block available for bookings at a rate of $149 ($167.71 with taxes). You may book your room online by going to Book your group rate for APRIL 2015 UCSD ROOM BLOCK.

Whichever method you use, you must book your room on or before Thursday, March 26 in order to qualify for the special rate. The rooms come with a king size bed and a sofa bed, free Wi-Fi, and full kitchen (refrigerator, microwave, stove). The property provides a 24-hour fitness facility and heated pool and whirlpool. Complimentary buffet breakfast is included. Parking is $15 per day. There is a hotel courtesy shuttle available for destinations within a five mile radius of the hotel which are scheduled for departure every hour, on the hour, between 6 AM and 9 PM.
