San Diego, also known as the jewel of Southern California, will again be one of our sites for this year’s Feast of Tabernacles. San Diego is a top travel destination and has a year-round climate that attracts many visitors.
This year we will be meeting at the Crowne Plaza for all services during the Feast. The resort is located on Hotel Circle and is just one mile from Old Town San Diego and 3 miles or less to Mission Bay, Sea World and other attractions. The Crowne Plaza is beautifully landscaped with a Hawaiian theme, and the hotel has seen many upgrades in the last year. We are expecting about 350 in attendance.
The hotel has offered us a $10 discount off the normal parking rate, charging only $3 per day for hotel guests and $5 per day for members staying off-site and coming to the venue each day for services. Those staying off-site can purchase a guest parking pass at the Crowne Plaza's front office for easy access to parking each day. This full-service hotel also has a restaurant, coffee/sandwich shop, sushi bar in the evenings, lounge, gift shop, exercise room, business center, on-site guest laundry, large outdoor heated swimming pool and whirlpool/hot tub.
We appreciate attendees’ staying at the Crowne Plaza, since that will reduce our cost for a wonderful meeting space. The hotel has given us a reduced rate and offers complimentary Internet, in-room refrigerators and microwaves. There are numerous restaurants and shopping facilities within 1 to 2 miles of the hotel. Other nearby hotels and vacation rentals will be available. Some of these housing properties are within walking distance.
Planned activities will include a family dance, seniors’ luncheon, teen and young adult activities, a golf tournament and more.
Local activities are plentiful, with snorkeling, surfing, kayaking, paddleboarding, deep-sea fishing, whale and dolphin watching, dinner or harbor cruises, wineries, mountain biking, golfing, scuba diving, tide pools, shopping and more. San Diego is also host to a wide variety of restaurants and fine dining.
