Sleeping Room Block

Our group rate is $135/night for Thursday night through Sunday night (Monday morning checkout). The sleeping rooms can hold up to 4 people comfortably.

The con has reserved a special block of 40 rooms, putting as many attendees together on our floor as possible. Booking in our block will open in the fall when registration opens.

We’re happy to help you find hotel roommates once you’re registered — We have a Slack channel specifically for this purpose! We always have a few rooms that contain new attendees who don’t know anyone and need roommates. It’s a great way to make friends and attend the con affordably. Please reach out to us if you need help, and we’ll get you squared away.

From LAX

If you need to fly into LAX, you’ll then need to travel the additional 45 miles to the hotel. If you rent a car at LAX, please be aware of the nightly parking cost ($14/day) when calculating your weekend costs.

Though it’s trickier, there is also an Amtrak train into Santa Ana. You’d need to take a 45-minute bus from LAX airport to Union Station (800 North Alameda Street) to board it. Once you arrive in Santa Ana, the station is less than 10 minutes from the hotel. You could Lyft/Uber from there, or we can try to coordinate picking you up. Tickets from Union Station (code LAX) to SNA station are $17 each way and a 45-minute ride, with a dozen trains running daily.
