Conference Site

Hard Rock Hotel

Ideally situated in the famous Gaslamp Quarter in San Diego, California, the Hard Rock Hotel combines beautiful, modern design with first rate service.

The Heart of San Diego-
Rising from the 16 square-blocks are Victorian-era buildings and modern skyscrapers that stand side by side, housing more than 100 of the city's finest restaurants, pubs, nightclubs and retails shops, as well as offices and residential/work lofts. Downtown San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter is a veritable playground, rich with cultural offerings that include theatres, art galleries, symphony halls, concert venues and museums.

You can spend an entire day in the Gaslamp Quarter, shopping at one of the many trendy boutiques or in the multi-level outdoor mall, Horton Plaza.

Dining options are plenty with options for al fresco on the sidewalks of this dynamic and cosmopolitan district, sky high at a rooftop lounge, or in an intimate and ornately designed restaurant. Baseball fans rejoice at Petco Park, where you can enjoy the game in sophisticated style in the Western Metal Building lounges, or take in the innings from the Park ball field with your kids. Fun with the family continues as you discover the colorful past of the former Stingaree District at the Gaslamp Museum at the Davis-Horton House, explore the whimsical and educational exhibitions at the New Children's Museum, climb aboard the U.S.S. Midway Museum, visit the candy store in Seaport Village or catch the Trolley for a quick ride to Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo.
