The San Diego Central Library is located in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego. Lodging in the area is generally higher than in outlying areas, but inexpensive options do exist. The planning committee has visited some of these hotels and while we do not currently have an "official" hotel,

Hotels and Hostels

We have searched for lodging that is advertised as under $200 per night for October 7-10. As always, book early for the best selection. Price search was done on August 12, 2016. Bot rates and availability are subject to change at any time. Anyone who can ask for a AAA or other discount can, most likely, get a 10%-15% discount on room rates. Also, it may be possible to get a lower room rate by calling a hotel directly rather than booking online.


  • Conference organizers have personally visited the following Hostels and Hotels, which are relatively close to the venue. We do not have any special endorsements or room deals for lodging, but are providing this information for the convenience of attendees:
    • The Hostel International (HI) Downtown San Diego on Market Street is probably the best bargain within the Gaslamp Quarter. Shared dormitory-style rooms are very inexpensive and private rooms with shared bathrooms are much less expensive than any hotel in the area.
    • Hotel Z, (a block south of Market Street on 6th) $158
    • Comfort Inn (G Street, rated 2-stars, one block N of Market Street) $132/night
    • Hotel Indigo (4 star) $189
  • Market Street and south (closer to venue), additional hotels include:
    • Horton Grand (Island Ave, 3 star) $167
    • Residence Inn San Diego (6th and J street, 3-star) $184
  • Moving north of Market Street up to about Broadway (give or take a couple blocks) additional area hotels include:
    • Ramada Gaslamp Convention Center (F street, rated 3-star) $118 - is close to a 24-hour restaurant
    • Sofia Hotel Downtown (on W Broadway) $147
    • The Bristol (1 block N of Broaday & 1st) $148
    • Gaslamp Plaza Suites (E street & 5th, 3 star) $149
    • Wyndham Harbor Lights (5th and E) $152
    • The Keating (F street 4-star) $171
    • Courtyard by Marriott Downtown (Broadway) $179
    • The Westin San Diego $186 (there’s another Westin nearby at about $200)
    • Westgate Hotel (Broadway) $183
    • Kimpton Hotel Palomar (Broadway and 5th) $194 (Also a Kimpton Solamar that’s more expensive)


  • Farther north, in the vicinity of A street and Ash street— between 6th and 10th — closer to Balboa Park by the I-5 cloverleaf:
    • Day’s Inn ($103)
    • Red Roof Inn ($102)
    • Holiday Inn Express Downtown ($150)
    • Marriott Vacation Club Pulse ( on A street) $149
    • Best Western Cabrillo Garden Inn (on A street) $149

Other options
