The meet will be held in the 25,000 square foot well lit and carpeted ballroom of the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara in Santa Clara, CA.
The Hyat Regency Santa Clara Hotel is located about five miles from the San Jose International Airport. There is ample free covered parking. If you come in by airplane or train and are not renting a car, you can get to the hotel via taxi or via the light rail line which stops outside the hotel.
The visiting layouts and contests will be in the ballroom. Clinics, because of a need for quieter surroundings, will be held in the hotel's meeting rooms.

Staying in the hotel is much more convenient, and helps to keep O Scale West's cost for the facility (which determines the prices charged for admission and the table rental cost) as low as can be.
A deposit of one night's lodging is required. Additional hotel contact information is included in the newsletter (see below.)
