There are a number of well-priced lodging alternatives that you can book independently. We recommend the Fairmont Newport Beach, the Hyatt Regency Irvine, the Marriott Irvine and the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach. You can find attractive rates on a variety of travel sites or you can call the hotel directly and ask for the UC Irvine rate. Taxi fares to UC Irvine are reasonable (around $20-$25 from any of these hotels). If you wish to stay at the Hyatt Regency Irvine, please contact Jeannine Straus so that she can arrange for you to receive the Merage School rate.

We have also negotiated discounted rates of $285/night for ocean view rooms at the Surf and Sand Resort, available from Friday forward. We have a very limited number of rooms available at this discounted rate and expect the room block to be exhausted quickly. The best price for these rooms on Expedia, Orbitz etc. is $555/night. The discounted rates are available for stay from June 6 to June 13.

The resort has also agreed to waive the resort fees ($15) so that guests will have:

  • Complimentary coffee/tea on lobby level until 10am
  • Nightly turndown service
  • Unlimited local, toll-free and credit card phone calls
  • Unlimited in-room high speed internet access
  • Daily Newspaper
  • Daily access to the Fitness Center
