PLNU partners with seven Bartell Hotels in San Diego to provide discounted rates to PLNU family and friends. In addition to providing a discount, Bartell will donate 10 percent of the total room cost to our University Fund benefiting student scholarships.

PLNU family and friends receive rates that are below best available rates. Hotel rates are based on availability and all appropriate taxes and hotel fees apply. To guarantee a special rate, each guest must ask for the "PLNU rate" at the time the reservation is made and we suggest you book early to ensure availability.
