Booking can be done online or calling 800-687-8733. To receive the conference rate please use the code "OSAC18" when making your reservation.
Several other large hotel casinos are also located on Virginia Street and close to the campus, including the El Dorado and Circus Circus casinos, both connected to the Silver Legacy, and nearby Harrah's Casino.
If you prefer to stay in a hotel without a casino the recommended options are:
Whitney Peak Hotel, an outdoor-sports themed hotel boasting the highest rock-climbing wall in the world (rooms can also be accessed by elevator).
Renaissance Hotel: an upscale hotel overlooking the Truckee River.
Reno-Tahoe International Airport has connections to destinations throughout the US. Free shuttles to and from the airport are available for most of the large hotels.
Reno is a scenic 4 hour drive from San Francisco through the Sierras via I-80. It can also be reached from the San Francisco Bay Area by bus service or Amtrak.
Parking is available at the hotels, and in campus garages near the campus venue (day pass must be purchased on Friday, free on Saturday and Sunday)
Reno sits at 5000 ft and has a dry but high-altitude climate. In September average highs are in the 80's but nighttime lows can drop to the 40's. Both evening banquets will include outdoor activities at higher elevations.
