Getting to Salt Lake City

Delta Airlines has a hub in Salt Lake City and so may be the best airline for your trip. However, other airlines, including Southwest, are very competitive, so we recommend you make travel arrangements by shopping around a bit. You may want to make arrangements through your travel agent, or using online services, such as Priceline, Hotwire, or Expedia

We Will Meet You at the Airport 
Most of the attendees fly into Salt Lake City International Airport on Sunday, and we will attempt to meet everybody that's coming in that day. We will make sure you have your luggage and get on the next available shuttle. The Salt Lake Plaza Hotel will run extra shuttles, coming by about every 30 minutes or so. There is no fee for the shuttle to the hotel, which is just a short ride from the airport. Leland and Alan will greet you at the airport. They will be at the airport from about 10 am to 6 pm. If you happen to come in earlier or later, call the Salt Lake Plaza Hotel at 
801-521-0130. The front desk will send the shuttle. 

Shuttle Service 
The shuttle will take you to the Plaza Hotel FREE OF CHARGE. 

Please note that the shuttle starts running at about 6 a.m. So when making your travel arrangements, schedule your outbound (return) flight for 8 a.m. or later!

Amtrak's daily 'California Zephyr' offers one of the world's most scenic rail trips between Salt Lake and Denver with service to Chicago or Reno-San Francisco. The Amtrak station is some distance away, and you will need to take a taxi to the hotel. If coming from the West, you'll arrive about 3:30 am. If coming from the East, you'll get in about 11:05 pm. Because of the late arrival we recommend you arrive a day early (either late Saturday night or early Sunday morning). Check the Amtrak schedules by right-clicking here. The California Zephyr is the 5th route down on the Routes Page.

Greyhound Bus 
The Greyhound bus station has moved and is just over a mile from the hotel at 300 South and 600 West. 

At the hotel you will be greeted by Donna Potter Phillips, supplied with your tour packet (badges,etc.) and checked into your room. We keep a hospitality area open all day on Sunday, serving punch, popcorn, cookies and other snacks.
