Hotel Reservations

A block of rooms has been reserved for the nights of March 13, 14, and 15, 2015. Room reservations are to be made by each individual guest by Wednesday, February 11, 2015. Each attendee should contact the Hotel’s Room Reservations Department at 800-843-7755 or 951-784-0300, extension 850. Attendees must reference the "UCR - Economics Conference" when making their reservations. The Hotel will require a major credit card or check for a one night’s stay deposit to guarantee each reservation. Individual reservations must be cancelled a minimum of 48 hours in advance to avoid cancellation charges equal to one night’s stay. Please note that the contracted group rate (Deluxe Room Type $119, plus tax about 13%) may (not) be available for dates outside the contracted room block. For pre- and post-night’s reservations, please contact the Hotel’s Room Reservations Department at 800-843-7755 and reference the group name of "UCR - Economics Conference."

The nearest airport is the Ontario International Airport (ONT, 17 miles from the Mission Inn Hotel). Other possible airports are the Orange County John Wayne Airport (SNA, 41 miles), the Long Beach Airport (LGB, 56 miles), the Burbank Bob Hope Airport (BUR, 66 miles), and the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX, 69 miles).

Transportation to and from an Airport

Shuttle service such as via SuperShuttle is the best option. If you are willing to drive, you might consider a rental car. In general, public transportation in California (i.e. via bus or train) is inconvenient, and transportation via taxi is expensive.

Note for invited guests who will be reimbursed for ground transportation expenses:
UCR Accounting imposes the limits of ground transportation expenses as follows: $77 for the shuttle from LAX (each way) and $39 for the shuttle from ONT (each way), plus tax and tip. These are the rates for a shared van from our primary vendor, SuperShuttle. UCR Accounting also allows the same reimbursement limits of $77 and $39 even if a passenger takes a more expensive form of transportation such as a taxi or a non-shared exclusive shuttle, town car, or limousine.
