Extended Stays
Due to high demand for hotel rooms in Santa Barbara, we are unable to extend hotel reservations beyond the room block dates listed above.

If you are planning on extending your stay, you will need to obtain approval from your manager and book your own hotel room for the additional nights. Extended hotel stays without written manager approval accompanying receipts will not be reimbursed. 

Attendees are responsible for making their own airline and ground transportation arrangements to/from Santa Barbara.

Rental cars aren't necessary for HG United as all activities take place at the same venue and the HG office is an 11 minute walk from the hotel.
