Best Western Premier Hotel Del Mar
Address: 720 Camino Del Mar, Del Mar, CA 92014-3008

Located in the seaside village of Del Mar, California, this boutique hotel is walking distance to the beach, shops, galleries, restaurants, and cafes.

Reservations: Please call 1(800)780-7234 (toll free hotline) or (858)755-9765 (direct hotel number) and indicate that you are attending the REDMUGEN conference.

Must book by: February 1, 2017 and indicate that the reservation is for the REDMUGEN conference to secure the discounted rate of $146.23 ($129.99 per night single or double + tax $16.24)

Available nights: Wednesday, March 1 to Saturday, March 4

Rate includes: Wifi, parking, and shuttle service to and from UCSD

We will charge a registration fee of $50 for faculty and will offer the possibility of pre-paying for breakfast and lunch. Additional options will be available for a la carte breakfast and lunch. Dinner will be on your own, but the conference will include at least one and possibly two receptions with heavy hors d’oeuvres.


Nearby airports include:

  • Tijuana (which has recently completed the Cross Border Xpress Bridge, allowing easy and fast border-crossing into the United States). Parking and taxis on the US side of the border is within reach literally 5-10 minutes after retrieving your luggage: However, due to the distance between the border and del Mar, the conference will try to coordinate pick-up of Mexican participants arriving in Tijuana.
  • San Diego-Lindbergh Field Airport offers shuttles and taxis.
  • John Wayne International in Santa Ana County, CA, is a bit further away and would require a more expensive taxi ride or renting a car, but may be more convenient depending on your travel plans.

We also intend to speak to various taxi and shuttle companies from the CBX Airport to see if it is possible to obtain a discount for travel from the airport to the hotel.  I will put an announcement on the listserv if this is possible.
