Hospitality in San Francisco

The PARC 55 is perfectly located in downtown San Francisco to access a variety of locations or if you just want to walk. Located in Union Square the PARC 55 is embedded in an active area for eating, shopping, and many tourist attractions.  This is the first time that NACCS is in San Francisco. Our first Bay Area conference was in the early beginnings of NACS (sic) hosted at the University of California, Berkeley. We have also been in Sacramento (twice) and our most recent in San Jose, CA.  

Conference Dates: For the duration of all conference events - arrival April , 2015 (onsite registration begins at 3:30 p.m. then followed with an evening welcome reception; presentations begin April 10 in the morning); depart (morning) April 13, 2014 (conference officially ends April 12 in the evening). 

Participants can begin their stay at the hotel starting April 4th and/or stay until April 15th with the conference rate. For additional dates and/or room options, please contact the hotel directly.

Rates: (not including tax) Reservations must be made by March 2, 2015 to receive conference rate.  Single/Double/Triple: $189.00. Rooms are limited and in high demand. Make your reservations early. We always try to get the best rates for our members (and we did!) - getting a rate under $200 is unheard of for one of the major downtown/Union Square San Francisco hotels.  There is a lot of demand for conventions for bigger groups than NACCS but somehow we got lucky!  Please come join us!

The fitness center is available to all guests. All guest rooms include a coffee maker, iron and ironing board, and hair dryer. Complimentary computer terminals and printing is also available.

Check in starts at 3:00 p.m. Check-out 12:00 pm. Pets are allowed. Speak to a Hotel Representative for details. 

SF Weather in April: High: 63, Low: 49. Layers layers and more layers.  Be prepared for warm/cool/windy afternoons and chilly nights.

Driving? Parking is available at the hotel. Prefect for locales driving in daily or groups vanpooling in.  Self parking $14.00. Valet parking is available $17.00.
