We are leaving lodging arrangements to our guests.  We recommend Tripadvisor to evaluate and book hotels.  To get best prices inquire about AAA, military, government, or senior citizen discount rates when making your hotel reservation or at check-in.  We will be staying at the J.W. Marriott Hotel (formerly Pan Pacific).  You're welcome to join us at the "JW" but there are many other hotels to fit all preferences and budgets.  Let us know if you need help or recommendations.
