Conference Site

Located in Mission Valley, the Town and Country Resort Hotel has been a San Diego landmark for over 40 years. Service, accommodations, amenities—that's what the Town and Country is famous for. You can choose either a ranch-style garden room or a room in one of the two high rise towers. All of the 1,000 guestroom accommodations ensure your comfort. The resort has four swimming pools; "Primos," a spa and fitness facility; five different restaurants and a self-contained conference center to ensure that your commute to the meeting will only take minutes.


SIAM is holding a block of rooms at the Town and Country Resort Hotel. These rooms are being held on a first-come, first-served basis at $125.00 single/double. Rates are subject to prevailing state and local taxes. These rooms will be held for SIAM's use until Thursday, June 7, 2001.
