We are staying and meeting at the beautiful Monterey Hyatt Regency

Nestled within 22 acres of soaring Monterey Pines, the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa on Del Monte Golf Course is a destination hotel providing the most discerning traveler with the quintessential Monterey experience. Its Central California Coast location offers guests close proximity to downtown Monterey, Monterey Airport and easy access to some of the Peninsula’s most well-known attractions.



The reserved room block is now CLOSED. A limited number of rooms were available at the $125.00 single/double conference price, through Oct. 8 only. Thanks, and see you there!


Travel to Monterey

See the Monterey travel bureau for great information on getting to Monterey by air, train or bus. The site also has a lot of information about restaurants, museums, hikes, and other attractions.

By Bus or Train: Amtrak‘s Coast Starlight train cruises through Salinas each day on its route between Seattle, WA and Los Angeles, CA, providing a leisurely and scenic way to travel (includes Northern California cities Dunsmuir, Redding, Chico, Sacramento, Davis, Martinez, Emeryville, Oakland, San Jose; and Southern California cities Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Oxnard, Simi Valley, and Van Nuys). Free bus service is provided from Salinas to downtown Monterey, a 30-minute ride. There is also a Greyhound station in Salinas with connecting service to Monterey.

By Car: There are two routes to Monterey by car, both very scenic. Highway One, which runs from San Francisco to Los Angeles, offers views of the Pacific coastline and has been called the top road trip in America by many sources. Highway 101 runs down the valley corridor through the Salinas Valley, also known as “the Salad Bowl of the World.” The Monterey Travel Bureau participates in The Offset Project to help offset the carbon emissions from your travel.
