The Hyatt Regency Irvine Hotel, site for our 2014 conference, has notified us that the hotel is undergoing a management change. Very soon, the hotel will operate as an independent hotel and will be named Hotel Irvine Jamboree Center. Other than the name, we expect very little to be different for our February 6-8, 2014 Conference. The hotel is honoring all of our reservations and conference arrangements and they are committed to helping us have a great conference.

Airport Transportation

The Orange County/John Wayne Airport (airport code SNA) is the closest airport to the hotel.

There is a complimentary shuttle between the Orange County/John Wayne Airport (airport code SNA) and the Hotel Irvine. The shuttle hours are 5:00 a.m. to 10:45 p.m. Below is a description that may be helpful to you if you travel to Irvine via air transportation. Other travel information about driving and parking at the hotel is on the AMTE website.

From inside the airport near the baggage claim area, look for signs that say Ground Transportation Center and that direct you to go outside the building. If you fly Southwest or Frontier Airlines, the signs may direct you to go outside the building and then walk about 500 feet to the Ground Transportation Center.  

At a light, you will cross one multi-lane street. Then cross the street that is used by taxis. You will see a sign for “Courtesy Shuttle: Hotels and Attractions” and you can wait here for the hotel’s shuttle. So, in essence you will wait at the third street from the building. Don’t go as far as Main Street Parking Shuttle or Door-to-Door Transportation, which is the fourth street.

There is no need to call for the shuttle. It will arrive at approximately 15 minutes and 45 minutes after the hour. The last shuttle departs the airport at 10:45 p.m. Some of the hotel shuttles are white vans with black lettering for Hotel Irvine with a burnt orange capital I in Irvine. One large shuttle is dark blue with the Hotel Irvine logo. The trip to the hotel is 5 to 10 minutes but may be longer with lots of traffic. If you need more information about the Airport Shuttle Service, please inquire at the Information Desk at the airport.
