the catamaran resort & hotel spa

3999 Mission Blvd

San Diego, CA 92109

BPL Reservations Line: 858-488-1081

Your Leadership Conference experience starts at the San Diego's Catamaran Hotel and Spa, overlooking San Diego's interior Mission Bay and only a stone's throw from the Pacific Beach boardwalk! 


Most rooms feature balconies or patios featuring breathtaking views of the bay, the nearby Pacific Beach neighborhood or the resort's lush tropical gardens. Don't be surprised if you wake to the sound of any number of the friendly parrots that call the Catamaran resort home!


If your room is not included in your conference registration (for instance, through an existing contract with Big Picture Learning), you can book directly here.

Please note that BPL's room block rate ($169) expired on November 8. You may still book a room at the Catamaran at a higher rate by clicking on the "Book Your Room" link or by calling the BPL Reservations Line directly.


If you are making your own reservations (not a part of a BPL contract), you can do so by using the above registration link or by calling The Catamaran reservations team: #858-488-1081. Our negotiated rate was $169, effective through November 8, 2022.  Any reservations made after this date will be reserved at the current rate decided by the hotel upon availability.


Please note: If you are a part of a school contract with Big Picture Learning, hotel dates at The Diplomat covered in the cost of a full package registration are December 5-6. If you register with dates outside of this block, you will be charged for the additional nights upon departure.


Hotel cancellation policy: If unable to attend, you understand that you are responsible for canceling your hotel reservation no later than December 1. Individual reservations will automatically be billed for one night unless cancelled 72 hours prior to arrival. You understand the contract is responsible for any hotel charges after this date (or, the school contract will be charged if conference attendee does not cancel after this date)
