Convention Hotels

In compliance with California law, all three hotels and the Sacramento Convention Center are 100% non-smoking facilities.

Hotel Reservations

The X2011 West Housing Bureau has closed and reservations made have been transferred to the hotels. All attendees who have made reservations should receive a new confirmation number directly from the hotel. The number that was received earlier was not the hotel confirmation number, but a reservation acknowledgement number generated by the housing bureau.

As for anyone looking for a room, The Sheraton Grand and The Citizen Hotel are SOLD OUT, but the Hyatt has expanded and extended their room block.

As long as rooms remain, the Hyatt Regency will honor the $109 rate for King and Double rooms, (Max two persons, additional people in a room are more).

To make reservations at the special convention rate, call 1-800-233-1234 (the Hyatt Central Reservation line) or the Hotel directly at (916) 443-1234, and refer to either "NMRA" or "The National Model Railroad Association".

Interesting Fun Fact

Please note that parking at the Convention Hotels is $18 per night for guests which is, unfortunately, typical for hotels in large cities where parking is limited. There are In/Out privileges. The Convention Committee tried to negotiate a less expensive parking rate, but the hotels would not agree.

In addition to parking facilities at either convention hotel, parking is also available at several nearby public and private parking facilities. For more information on city-operated locations and rates, see the City of Sacramento Parking Service website. For privately-owned lots, refer to this list of parking lots near the Convention Center.
