Our campus for SANS Seattle 2012 is the Renaissance Seattle Hotel in the heart of downtown. A special discount rate of $165 S/D will be honored based on space availability. Government per diem rooms are available with proper ID; you will need to call reservations and ask for the SANS government rate. These rates include high speed Internet in your room. Make your reservations now as this special rate is only available through September 21.

The Renaissance Seattle Hotel is just minutes away from both Qwest and Safeco Fields. Pike Place Market with its many unique stores is also nearby. This hotel features views of the city skyline, Puget Sound, and the Cascade and Olympic Mountains. It is convenient to the Sea-Tac airport and has easy access to major freeways. Also in and unique to Seattle is the Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame (abbreviated as EMP/SFM). While it isn't close to the hotel, public transportation makes it an easy destination. For more information, see http://www.empmuseum.org/index.asp. Seattle is the northernmost major city in the contiguous United States and is well known for the beauty of its surrounding. In October, Seattle has highs near 60 degrees and lows in the 40s.

Brilliant course (SEC505), a great mixture of on-the-spot learning combined with more than enough 'further study needed' challenges to research back at home. - Richard George, MOD

SANS instructors are always top notch, Jason is no exception. - Randy Hensel, Coffey Communications

A great eye-opener and skill to work on for a long time coming! Instructor's ability to explain and keep the attention of a varied group is awesome! Not to mention he really knows this stuff!. - Lucille Figini, Boeing

SANS always has the most technical and hands-on courses out of all the training centers. - Cynthia Jones, USAA
