How the Room Numbers Work
The room numbers are four digits (e.g. 1218).  The first digit indicates the building; the second is the floor; the third and fourth are the room.

Free Wi-Fi will be available in the large Golden Pacific Foyer.  Internet access is also available in sleeping rooms for $10 per day.

There is an ATM outside the hotel lobby and one outside the Atlas and Royal Palm Ballrooms (go out via the Lion Fountain Court).

The Bar at World Fantasy
Though the Town & Country has multiple bars on its grounds, we have made arrangements with Trellises to stay open until the mandated 2AM closing time (see below).  In effect, it will be the WFC bar in the evenings.  It will offer a variety of San Diego microbrews and wines in addition to the standard alcoholic beverages and we encourage you to patronize it.  

California Law/Hotel Bar Policy
By law, all bars must shut down at 2AM.  Last call for drinks in all hotel bars will be at 1:30AM, with all drinks/glassware cleaned up by 2AM closing.

Hotel Package Receipt Policy
The Town & Country charges for receiving packages on a sliding scale based on weight.  You’ll need to pay these fees before claiming your package(s).  To make other arrangements, please contact Rina Weisman, Publisher Liaison, at  WFC assumes no responsibility for packages shipped to the hotel.

During the weekends of October 21–23 and October 28–30, all Trolley stations between Old Town and City College will be closed. Substitute bus shuttle service will be available. The Trolley stations will be closed beginning 9 p.m. on Friday and will reopen for the start of service Monday morning. For complete information, click here.
