Hotel & Travel Information
Why should you stay in the headquarters hotel?
We encourage you to stay in the headquarters hotel and when making your reservation to identify yourself as a USENIX conference attendee.
It is by contracting sleeping rooms that we can significantly reduce hotel charges for meeting room rental. When the sleeping rooms are not utilized, we face significant financial penalties. As a result, these penalties ultimately force us to raise registration fees.
We recognize, however, that not everyone can afford to stay in the conference hotel. We always try to book venues that have some low-cost alternatives available near the conference.
With costs going higher and higher, USENIX is working very hard to negotiate the very best hotel rates and keep other conference expenses down in order to keep registration fees as low as possible. We appreciate your help in this endeavor.
