EDIT: (Adding this information from another post I made in a different thread, as a reference.)

From the MTS web page about Comic-Con trolley info:
"There is free parking at Qualcomm Stadium. The Special Event Red Line will take you directly from Qualcomm Stadium to the Convention Center. At Hazard Center, free parking is available on the lower level (in the evening on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday and all day Saturday and Sunday)."

I've never been to San Diego and will be arriving by myself to meet up with others later. Is it relatively easy to get from the airport to the hotels by the convention center?

Instead of a cab, you can also use Super Shuttle.  I did a sample route using the Marriott Marquis and Marina Hotel (the one next to the San Diego Convention Center), just to try it out.  For a one-way with one adult (from the airport) trip, the "Shared Ride Van Service" price is $8.00.

Here's the website:

The settings I used for the example were the following--
Select One-way or Round-Trip: One-way (From Airport)
Select Airport: San Diego Airport (SAN)
Select Address Type: Hotel / Popular Landmark
No. of Adult: 1
No. of Child: (left alone)

Enter Group / Discount Code: (left alone, but I'm sure you can find some online)

Click "Next."

The next page will take you the "Hotel / Landmark Search."  You can either enter the hotel name and they'll provide you with a list to choose from, or check the box that says "I will enter the address manually." 
(For this, I just typed in "Marriott Marquis" as a reference point.)

Then, click "Next" (or follow the steps it asks of you for manually entering an address), and it will show you the rates for different kinds of ride services FROM the airport, as of today, Sunday, March 25, 2012:
[*]Shared Ride Van Service ($8.00 USD for first passenger; $8.00 USD for each additional passenger). Note that this rate is only for one-way, so if you're thinking about using the Shared Ride Van Service, a round-trip is $16.00.
[*]Exclusive Non-Stop Van Service ($49.00 USD).
[*]Exclusive Van Service ($76.00 USD).
[*]ExecuCar Sedan Service Meet and Greet ($40.00 USD).
[*]ExecuCar SUV Service Meet and Greet ($60.00 USD).[/list]
(None of these include tip...)

*The TO the airport ride service seems to be cheaper for the ExecuCar Sedan ($25.00 USD) and SUV Service ($45.00 USD) Meet and Greet.

You can also call them for rate quotes, as they may or may not change throughout the year.


I hope that helps!  If I find any other ride services to and from the airport, I'll post them here. ^_^d
EDIT: Found another ride service to price compare.
