Hyatt Regency Hotel

Our hosting hotel is The Hyatt Regency here in Sacramento and is the site where our training seminars and awards banquet will be held. We have been given a significant discount during the tournament weekend with rooms as low as $169.00 per night. These rooms won’t last long and we expect them to sell out quickly so please don’t hesitate to book your room as soon as possible.

As a friendly reminder, the last day to enjoy this discount is July 31, 2020. All reservations made beyond this date will be made based on the Hotel’s availability. 

Located across the street from the California State Capitol and steps to the Memorial Auditorium (where the tournament is held), this hotel is at the intersection of history and modern luxury. The Hyatt Regency include amenities such as a resort-style outdoor pool and hot tub, 24-hour accessible gym, and a wellness spa that include massage, facials, and spa treatments.

Sacramento International Airport

The newly remodeled Sacramento International Airport is consistently rated in the top 5 airports in the United States for its cleanliness and ease of transportation between terminals. Be sure to keep an eye out for the distinct Sacramento “Red Rabbit” leaping in the airport.

If you have time to kill at the airport, both terminals are home to art installations that are detailed at the airport website.

During the summer months, SMF recommends that you plan to arrive at least 2 hours before your scheduled flight arrival time.

Travel to the Hotel from the Airport

Renting a Car

If you want to avoid renting a car, Uber or Lyft ride shares will cost you about $35 for a one way ride from the airport to the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

If you plan to travel outside the city, it will be more cost effective to rent a car. All rental car companies at Sacramento International Airport are located at the rental car terminal on airport property. The on-airport rental car shuttle arrives at designated stops on ground level curbs outside both terminals approximately every 10 minutes. The shuttle serves all on-airport rental car agencies listed on the rental car page. Rental car shuttles are assigned by terminal. Be sure to check the signs to make sure the shuttle you are on is going to the terminal you wish to go to.

Shuttle wait times may be longer during the airport’s peak hours: 4 – 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. – midnight.

Travel in the City

The hotel, tournament, awards banquet, and seminars are all located within walking distance of one another. The Hyatt regency hotel is located directly across the street from the state capital and is in the heart of “Midtown” Sacramento. There is so much to see and do here, and almost all of it is within walking distance. We have detailed the most popular destinations in the Leisure and Excursions section of the site.
