The group rate will be available until Friday, October 7, 2016, or until the block sells out, whichever occurs first.

ATTENTION! Due to the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon in Savannah November 5-6, USENIX's guest room block at the Westin is limited on Friday, November 4, and Saturday, November 5. If you plan to stay in Savannah at the Westin November 4-5 and experience an error when attempting to book online, please contact the hotel directly at 912.201.2000 regarding availability. Please note that the marathon will also affect travel times in and around Savannah that weekend, so please plan accordingly.

Why should you 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 100% booked, 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.
