USENIX has negotiated a special room rate of $235 plus tax for single/double occupancy for conference attendees. To receive this rate, book your room online or call (510) 451-4000 and mention USENIX or FAST '18.

The group rate will be available until Wednesday, January 24, 2018, or until the block sells out, whichever occurs first.

After the hotel discount deadline has passed, contact the hotel directly to inquire whether rooms are still available.

Why stay in the conference hotel?

One way USENIX reduces meeting room rental fees is via our contracted hotel room block. When our room block is not utilized by attendees, we face significant financial penalties, which may ultimately force us to raise registration fees. For this reason, we encourage attendees to stay in the conference hotel and to identify themselves as USENIX conference attendees when making reservations.
