Why should you stay in the headquarter hotel?|
We encourage you to stay in the conference hotel and when making your
reservation to identify yourself as a USENIX conference attendee.
It is by contracting rooms for our attendees that we can significantly
reduce hotel charges for meeting room rental. And, when the sleeping
rooms are not utilized, we face significant financial penalties. As a
result, these penalties force us to ultimately raise registration fees.
We recognize, however, that not everyone can afford to stay in the
conference hotel so we always try to book venues that have some low-cost
alternatives available nearby the conference.
With costs going higher and higher, we are 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 you helping us in this endeavor.
