Our host hotel is now sold out on Sunday February 5. Currently, the best way to get a room at the Hyatt right now is to call the hotel directly at 714-698-1234.

If they can’t get you in on Sunday, take what you can and ask them to put you on the wait list for Sunday openings. If you can’t get a room at all, please make a reservation elsewhere. Keep calling the Hyatt to take advantage of any cancellations that will occur between now and the conference. Give SMA your name, and we’ll put you on our wait list as well. If you have a reservation at the Hyatt that you don’t need, please let us know rather than canceling with the hotel. There are many hotels in Huntington Beach, but these two are within easy walking distance of the Hyatt are the Waterfront Hilton and the Pasea Hotel.
