USENIX has negotiated a special room rate of $249 plus tax for single/double occupancy for conference attendees. This special rate includes a resort fee waiver and wireless internet access. To receive this special rate, book your room online or contact the hotel directly and mention USENIX or OSDI '18. The group rate will be available until 5:00 pm PDT on Monday, September 17, 2018, or until the block sells out, whichever occurs first.

Room Sharing

USENIX utilizes Google Groups to facilitate room sharing. You can sign up for free to find attendees with whom you can share a hotel room, taxi, etc. Please include "OSDI '18" in the subject line when posting a new room share request.

Why stay in the headquarters 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.


Detailed transportation information is available from the hotel.


We are pleased to offer OSDI '18 attendees complimentary self-parking during their stay.
