By selecting a Bartell Hotel for your stay, Bartell will donate 10% back of the total room cost to support student scholarships and promote university events.

All seven Bartell Hotels are conveniently located close to the USD campus, all major attractions, and many are situated on the water's edge. Guests will also receive complimentary continental breakfast and welcome beverage. Most of the hotels provide courtesy airport transportation and free parking.
