Why should you stay in one of the conference hotels?

We encourage you to stay in one of the conference hotels 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 hotels. 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.


USENIX has negotiated special rates for conference attendees at the San Jose Marriott and the Hilton San Jose. Please make your reservation as soon as possible by contacting the hotel directly and mentioning USENIX or LISA to get the special group rate.

Conference Location: All conference events will take place at the San Jose Convention Center and at the San Jose Marriott. Both the Hilton and the Marriott are connected to the Center. The Center is located at 150 West San Carlos St., San Jose, CA 95110.

Important Note about Hotel Room Availibility: The San Jose Marriott and the Hilton San Jose are both currently sold out. We recommend that you check out hotels in the surrounding area for availability, and check back with the Hilton and Marriott periodically to see if they have any cancellations.
