Coming to San Diego for a Convention?


When you’re in San Diego for a convention center event, you may not have as much time as you would like to explore the surrounding area. Fortunately, with careful planning, you can easily visit a handful of downtown attractions during breaks or after your convention.

One of the best ways to make the most of your convention trip is to stay at an affordable downtown San Diego hotel. This will allow you to easily travel to various attractions nearby such as the San Diego Zoo, Petco Park, Balboa Park and the Gaslamp Quarter just to name a few. Affordable hotels in downtown San Diego help you save money so you can better enjoy the nearby attractions and nightlife.

If possible, try to reserve a hotel near the San Diego Convention Center. If you do this, you might not even have to rent a car. A taxi ride from the San Diego Airport is less than $15 to the general downtown district and if you stay nearby, walking or taking advantage of the public transportation system is a great way to explore the city.

If you do decide to rent a car, there is parking available for conventioneers. You will also receive a convention center badge for discounts at local Gaslamp restaurants, as well as a few in Old Town and Seaport Village. These small San Diego communities are great places to enjoy a meal, while being able to experience a little bit more of the local area.
