Hotel Reservation Discount Deadline: Extended to November 22, 2002

Why should you stay in the headquarter hotel?
We would like to encourage you to stay in the headquarter hotel(s) and when making your reservation remember to state that you are attending the USENIX conference.

USENIX conferences use a lot of meeting space and rental fees can be quite costly. As a result, USENIX always negotiates contracts that contain guarantees that a certain number of sleeping rooms will be used during our conferences. When those guarantees are not met, USENIX is assessed penalties.

As a benefit to you, USENIX is able to leverage these guarantees to negotiate discounted rates for your stay. Widespread defection from the headquarters hotel will inevitably lead to hotels declining to book USENIX conferences and also higher conference registration fees.

Although we try to negotiate the best possible rates, we recognize that not everyone can afford to stay in the headquarters hotel. We always try to choose sites that have less expensive options in the immediate area.

Thank you for your understanding.

USENIX has negotiated special rates for conference attendees at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel. Please make your reservation as soon as possible by contacting the hotel directly. You must mention USENIX, OSDI, or WIESS to get the special group rate.
