  • icon-building Accommodations

    NRHA event attendees have filled the room block at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina and certain nights during NRHA's events may already be sold out.

    The next closest hotel is the Hilton San Diego Airport, walking distance to the Sheraton.

    The Sheraton San Diego Hotel is located across the street from the San Diego International Airport. Complimentary shuttle service runs every 15 minutes from 5:30 a.m. to midnight.

    Fraud alert
    Some NRHA members have been contacted by companies claiming to represent NRHA in booking hotel reservations for this conference. This is unfortunately a widespread problem in the meeting industry. NRHA does not use a third party booking service, and hotel reservations can be booked directly.

    Experience San Diego
    San Diego is known for its beaches, parks and warm climate. Balboa Park is the site of the world-famous San Diego Zoo, as well as numerous art galleries, artist studios, museums and gardens. A deep harbor is home to a large active naval fleet, with the USS Midway, an aircraft-carrier-turned-museum, open to the public. Click here for visitor information.

    NRHA certificates of attendance will be available at the registration desk. Attendees may use these certificates with third-party organizations or their employer as documentation of having received conference hours of instruction.
