The 2021 CREF Marriott hotel reservation portal is now open, and it’s never too early to book your stay.
The four-star Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina is the official CREF 2021 hotel. Our reservation portal is now active, so remember to make your reservations early if you’re planning to attend this fall.
CREF 2021 knows that COVID-19 has disrupted everyone’s lives. And although 2020 has been difficult in ways we never could have anticipated, we feel hopeful that medical advances will help curb the COVID-19 pandemic so that in 2021, we will find ourselves returning to a safer, more socially fulfilling life.
