1. What is included in the Travel Information?
The Travel Information page gives the participant information about the starting and ending locations for the event, directions to those locations and instructions for how to make hotel reservations (including shuttle service) before, during and after the event.

2. When will I receive the Travel Information?
You can find the Travel Information webpage in your Participant Center, under the Prepare menu at the top of the screen. 

3. How long do I have to make my travel arrangements?
Due to limited availability, please make your travel arrangements as soon as possible. All hotel room packages for the San Diego 3-Day must be booked by 10/17/21, and are available on a first come, first served basis. Hotel rooms and the associated promotional rate are subject to availability of the room block.

4. What is a Host Hotel?
A hotel where we’ve negotiated room blocks for 3-Day participants the nights before, during and immediately after the event. Host hotel rooms and shuttle service are sold by the hotel as a package.

5. How do I get to my Host Hotel?
Participants are responsible for their own transportation to the Host Hotel on Thursday.

1. How do I book a room?
Click the link on the Travel Info page to go to the 3-Day hotel reservation website. This site is maintained by the 3-Day’s travel agent, and all reservations must be made through this site in order to get the 3-Day package rate with shuttle service.

2. I am a crew member. Is there a specific hotel that I need to stay in?
No. All Thursday night hotels will have early morning shuttle services for crew members. If you are booking a hotel room only for Thursday night and no other nights, you should select the Hilton Del Mar, since that hotel is closest to the Opening Ceremony location.

3. Where are the Host Hotels located?
Host Hotels are located near the major sites (Opening Ceremony, Closing Ceremony, Camp) for the San Diego 3-Day. For details and reservations, go to the Travel Info page and click the link in the hotel section to go to the 3-Day hotel reservation website. This site is maintained by the 3-Day’s travel agent, and all reservations must be made through this site in order to get the 3-Day package rate with shuttle service.

No. The host hotel package room rates are inclusive of your hotel sleeping room and shuttle transportation to the various 3-Day sites. Shuttle transportation to the various 3-Day sites is not available through the host hotel for those who do not book through the 3-Day hotel reservation website. We recommend that you check with your chosen hotel to determine your transportation options.

8. How will they be identifying camp host hotel shuttle users?
A registered hotel rooming list provided by the hotel will specify all persons and roommates booked under the package room rate at the host hotel. No ticket or pass is required.
