Hyatt Regency Hotel in Monterey, California

Robert Schley, Saybrook’s Conference Director, confirms that contracts have now been signed with the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa in Monterey, California, for the residential conferences starting in January 2017 through August 2019. All of Saybrook’s residential conferences, along with the annual graduation ceremony, will then take place at the Hyatt. The conferences will continue to be held at the beginning of the Fall and Spring semesters each year, in August and January, and will also include the Residential Orientations for new students. Seattle residential students will have their first RC each semester with the other students in Monterey and then continue the rest of the semester in Seattle.

The Hyatt Hotel is located on the historic Del Monte Golf Course run by the Pebble Beach Management Company. With 550 rooms, the hotel is large enough to accommodate all of Saybrook’s students, faculty and staff in one place, and with more than 43,000 square feet of meeting space, indoors and out, it should prove to be an ideal location for the residential conferences. It is spread out like a university campus in more than 20 small buildings only three stories tall. There are numerous lounge areas and informal meeting spaces available for faculty/student interaction, and several outdoor venues like fire pits and swimming pools for recreation and just hanging out. A conference center in the center of the complex contains most of the meeting rooms, but quite a few small hospitality suites and parlor suites can be found in the nearby residential buildings that will be perfect for small classrooms and breakout sessions. The hotel is only eight residential blocks from a beach on Monterey Bay, offering great opportunities for walks and fresh air breaks.

The hotel is very near the Monterey Regional Airport, which offers flights on regional jets to numerous cities in the West, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Diego, and Phoenix. The Hyatt also participates in a regular shuttle service to the San Jose Mineta International Airport.

Monterey and its neighbor communities of Carmel, Pacific Grove and Seaside form a wonderful community with spectacular scenery along the Central Coast of California. Famed for the Pebble Beach Country Club and the 17-Mile Drive, along with Monterey’s Cannery Row of Steinbeck’s notoriety and the world-renowned Monterey Aquarium, this area is ripe for exploration and fun!
