The 2018 PSR Convention will be hosted at The Courtyard San Diego Mission Valley, 595 Hotel Circle South, San Diego, CA 92108. The Hotel is quite nice, with modern rooms, free wi-fi throughout, free coffee in the lobby until 10:30am each day, cafe, pool and many other amenities. Parking for convention registrants and attendees (including the swap meet) is free. Located on Interstate 8 in the Hotel Circle area near to downtown, Balboa Park, Sea World and many other well known entertainment and vacation destinations, your family will find much to keep them occupied if they are not "into" model railroading.
We ran out of rooms at the Marriott Courtyard, the Convention Hotel. However, thanks to the assistance of Susan, our Hotel Broker, we have been able to get additional rooms at two hotels (The Handlery Resort and the Town & Country Hotel), both within a half mile of the convention hotel, with the same discounts and amenities. So, if you were holding off due to the possible higher cost of a room elsewhere, that's not a factor. For more details, check out the Hotel Reservation page on this site.
