Catamaran Hotel

The Catamaran Hotel and the 2nd Osler Symposium were made for each other! Less than 10 miles from San Diego International Airport, the Catamaran—situated on Mission Bay and across the boulevard from the ocean—is nestled between Mission Beach and Pacific Beach. It is walking distance from dozens of funky and fine dining restaurants. Yet when you enter the front doors, you’ve entered a magnificent, secluded oasis. And the “Osler Symposium experience” begins.

Explore the Catamaran’s lush gardens and rare tropical plant and bird collections. Bring your rollerblades!…or walk the 7-mile path that meanders along the shoreline of Mission Bay.
