Since the conference will be held at the SpringHill Suites near the San Jose Airport, most attendees will stay there. This facilitates socializing after hours, comparing programming techniques while lounging in the hotel’s outdoor swimming pool, and so on. You may stay at another local hotel if you wish, but then you will be on your own, and you will have to travel to the SpringHill Suites for the conference.
The special HHC rate this year is $124/night (+14.195% +$1 taxes = $142.60). All of the currently available rooms are king bed only, but each room also has a pull-out bed.
Parking is $15 per night.
To reserve a room at the SpringHill Suites at the special HHC 2018 rate, use the HHC 2018 Special-Rate link in the box below before the deadline of September 7 for Sept 28/29 and/or Sept 29/30. The link only offers the HHC discount for those two nights. If you need any days outside that range, call Lina Dang (Sales Coordinator) directly at the hotel: (669) 292-2646. Currently, the listed rate for Sunday night is $179, and Thursday night is $209. There is a major concert in the area that weekend, so rooms are running out quickly. Make your reservation ASAP!
Contact Richard J. Nelson if you have any questions or hotel issues.

Free Buffet Breakfast Bar
MealsThe hotel offers a complementary buffet breakfast (see photo above).
All meals will be at the discretion of each attendee. There will be no meals served in the meeting room this year, since catered events at hotels have become prohibitively expensive.
In addition to the hotel's own pub ("Skyport Lounge, Serving Quick Bites 7 evenings a week, Open for dinner"), there are a number of food choices in walking distance. Light rail station is a couple of hundred feet away if you want to go downtown, where there are a huge number of food choices. The Greyhound bus terminal is close also.
Two lists of nearby eateries can be found on the Conference Expenses page.
Transportation between Hotel and AirportThe hotel is only half a mile southeast of San Jose International Airport (SJC). A complimentary shuttle to and from the airport is offered by the hotel on request. Shuttle Phone: +1 (408) 650-0580
