A&W Convention

Hotel & Travel

Hotel Information

At the Town and Country Resort, you’ll get front-row access to all San Diego has to offer. With a central location in Mission Valley, you’re adjacent to luxury shopping and golf, and within minutes of the airport, beautiful beaches, hiking, biking and world-class attractions. The hotel has been a beloved landmark since 1953 and just recently completed a multimillion-dollar transformation. Like A&W, the Town and Country is the perfect place to appreciate tradition and history, while luxuriating in the excitement of new possibilities. 

Town and Country offers a multitude of unique accommodations and for the convention, we have secured the entire resort. Guests can choose to stay in the main building (Palm Tower) or be assigned at the hotel discretion in a variety of beautiful rooms (Run-of-House) located across the resort grounds.

The Town and Country Resort boasts three pools plus a hot tub and waterslide, a state-of-the-art fitness centre, lots of green space, and diverse chef-driven dining options. At the resort, you are just a ten-minute drive away from the world-famous San Diego Zoo, Petco Park (home of the San Diego Padres), Mission Beach, and the museums of Balboa Park.
