FAQs

(More FAQs available on our website at  ACS 2014 Conference )

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

The closest and most convenient airport is John Wayne International, airport code SNA (sometimes
referred to as Orange County or Santa Ana airport). It’s only about four miles from the Hyatt Regency,
and the hotel runs a free shuttle to/from this airport.

If SNA doesn’t work out for you, Long Beach Airport (LGB) is about 25 miles away and Los Angeles
International (LAX) about 45 miles. The hotel does not have a shuttle to these airports, but commercial
shuttles and taxis are available.

All of the above-mentioned airports have rental car facilities, but you might get a better price at the
Hertz Local Edition in the Hyatt Regency. You can book this location through the Hertz website or
directly by phone at (949) 718-0239.

If you’re staying in the hotel overnight, self-parking is free for conference attendees. If not, it’s $5 a day
(up to 15 hours, enough for one day’s conference activities).
